C            G
  Didnt you hear?
             Am
  Black is a criminal,
             F
  White is a crime,
         C
  Poison is the pen
   G                F            C
  Writing down this childrens nursery rhyme.
C            G                Am
  Didnt you see him standing next to me?
F              C
  The seeds of change have grown,
G                  F             C
  We dont have to hide anymore.

C     G   Am  F            C        G         F         C
  Lololololololo, that means trouble from the other side,
  Lololololololo, maybe the trouble of a hopeful heart.

  It doesnt take much to see
  If youre looking for an enemy,
  Greed and apathy
  Spell the letters of our name.
  You sit and laugh at other people,
  Making money off their shame and sorrow,
  Waiting for tomorrow to fix itself.

  Lololololololo, that means trouble from the other side,
  Lololololololo, maybe the trouble of a hopeful heart.

  Its a dark night to feed a stranger,
  I dont have enough to feed myself.
  I keep trying to believe in believing
  In something I cant see
  From where I stand,
  I pull it with my faith,
  With the smile on my face.

  Its gonna take a lot more
  Than you might be used to,
  Whos to blame for not standing up for them
  When it was not in style?
  When hope is the color of a man
  The color of love is the color that can
  Stand for something.

  Lololololololo, that means trouble from the other side,
  Lololololololo, may be trouble of a hopeful heart.
  Lololololololo, the trouble of a hopeful heart,
  A hopeful heart, it could be a hopeful heart.
