Nofx - Man I Killed tab

G                                      C           G
When they tightly strap me in, give me lethal injection,
       Em             G          C                D
Just a few moments to live, no remorse for what I did,
               G                              C
It was for the betterment of man, I gave the utmost
            Em              G      C        G
Before more damage could be done I took his life.
            C                                D

There was a split second of silence when the dart punctured
the skin,
      G                                   C
Beady eyes rolled back in head, the body dropped from the
           C                              D
They could incapacitate me, but could not erase my sneer,
          G                                       C
I heard a thousand people screaming, while three billion
others cheered,
       G         D
He was gone, and I would soon be...

   G                          C                 G
Executed by the state, all appeals would be in vain,
             Em      G                C              D
I was not criminally insane, in fact, I was found to be,

             G               C              G Em
An otherwise caring and respectable member of society,
G                          C              G
A minor threat, except for that one man I killed.

       G              C              G               Em

          G                    C
There's a priest kneeling next to me, he asks me if I
      G                 C            G
I was going straight to hell, and he thought that I should
         G              C
That the man I killedÂ’s replacement planned this whole
           G       C          D    G
And what I did had no significance at all.
