A 
Oh, sweet thing,
              D
Zion doesn't love you
               E
And Babylon don't love you
                    A
But you love everything

A
Oh, you saint
                D
America don't love you
                  E
So I could never love you
                   A
In spite of everything

         C#m                             F#m 
In the dark of this place, there's the glow of your face,
             Bm                          A         E
There's the dust on the screen, of this broken machine,
       Bm                          A/C#        E/G#   
And I can't help but feel, that I made some mistake,
             Bm             A/C#    E/G#
But I let it go, Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Ya Hey

   D
Through the fire and through the flames
    E                 A                    D
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey)
   D
You won't even say your name
    E                 A                    D          
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey)
    D                             D/C#    E
Through the fire and through the flames, you won't even say your name,
 A                D    
Only I am that I am
    D                         
But who could ever live that way?
    E                 A                    D                A 
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey)


A
Oh,
                     D
The motherland don't love you
                     E
The fatherland don't love you
                 A
So why love anything?

A
Oh, good God,
                           D
The faithless, they don't love you
                          E
The zealous hearts don't love you
                       A
And that's not gonna change

         C#m                        F#m
All the cameras and files, all the paranoid styles
        Bm                       A        E
All the tension and fear, of a secret career
       Bm                           A/C#        E/G#
And I can't help but feel, that you see the mistakes
               Bm             A/C#     E/G#
But you let it go, Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Ya Hey

   D
Through the fire and through the flames
    E                 A                    D
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey)
   D
You won't even say your name
    E                 A                    D
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey)
    D                              D/C#    E
Through the heart and through the flames, you won't even say your name,
 A                  D     
You say I am that I am.
     D
But who could ever live that way?
    E                 A                    D                   
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey)


A
Outside the tents, on the festival grounds
D
As the air began to cool, and the sun went down
E
My soul swooned, as I faintly heard the sound
E/G#
Of you spinning "Israelites" into "19th Nervous Breakdown"


   D
Through the fire and through the flames
    E                 A                    D
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey)
   D
You won't even say your name
    E                 A                    D
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-O Hey, Ya Hey)
    D                             D/C#    E
Through the fire and through the flames, you won't even say your name,
 A                D
Only I am what I am.
 D
But who could ever live that way?
    E                 A                    D                   
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey)
    D                             D/C#    E
Through the fire and through the flames, you won't even say your name,
 A                D
Only I am that I am.
 D
But who could ever live that way?
    E                 A                    D                   A
(Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey, Yo De-o Hey, Ya Hey)
