Why Are we so Blind

Written By: Tony Lee/Wayne Gillespie

“WHY ARE WE SO BLIND? (Rock Ballad?)

VERSE 1:
B(m) D E A
In the name, of right and religion,
And our Mother Earth, no less,
We destroy our brothers and our sisters,
While politicians argue what’s best.

Pre chorus:
F#7
Righteousness is causing strife and,
G+e A A7
Ideology destroying life oh.

CHORUS
Bm A G A
Why are we so Blind? Why are we so......
Why are we so Blind? Can't we see what we're doin'?
Why are we so blind? Why are we so......
Bm A G A7
Why are we so ...blind?

Verse 2.
B(m) D E A
The Forests screamin', for some mercy,
......They're helpin' us exist,
slaughter in the name of profit,
so that this will help us live,
F#7
Material gain is causing strife and,
G+e A A7
Selfish greed's destroying life.. oh.

CHORUS
Bm A G A
Why are we so Blind? Why are we so......
Why are we so Blind? Can't we see what we're doin'?
Why are we so blind? Why are we so......
Bm A G G+a
Why are we so blind?

-Bridge: (Verse 3)
Am7 Fmaj7
You find her, living in the alley,
Her dark eyes so, full of need,
She should be, living with her family,
Am Fmaj7 G A7
Instead, she chooses this............ Why this? Why this?

Revised CHORUS.
Bm A G A
Why, we are we so blind? Can't we see what we're doin'?
Bm A G A
Why are we so blind? Destroying our earth,
Bm A G A
And.. each... other
Bm A G A
Why are we so blind? Is this our future
Bm A G A
...Destiny?......

Verse 4.
B(m) D E A
In the name of our world, and it's people,
We're gonna put you leaders to the test,
Our children's fears materializing,
You politicians need to, do what's best.

Pre chorus.
F#7
Politicians, are causing strife and,
G+e A A7
Egos and agendas are destroying life..oh.

Bm A G A
Why are we so blind? Why are we so......
Why are we so blind? Can't we see what we're doin'?
Why are we so blind? Why are we so......
Why are we so blind?
