Em A Hey, kids D D B Today, we're gonna learn about the world [Verse 1]
Em A The world that's around us D Is pretty amazing D But how does it work? B It must be complicated Em A D The secret is the world can only work D B When everything works together [Verse 2]
Em A A bee drinks from a flower D And leaves with its pollen D A squirrel in a tree B Em Spreads the seeds that have fallen A Everything works together D B Em A The biggest elephant, the littlest fly D B Em A The gophers underground, the birds in the sky Gb Bm Daug D D And every single cricket, every fish in the sea G E A Gives what they can and gets what they need [Chorus]
D E That is how the world works G Em A That is how the world works D From A to Zebra Gb7 Bm To the worms in the dirt G D That's how it works [Interlude 1]
D Gbm Hey everyone Bm7 Look who stopped by to say hello Gbm It's Socko D Hey! Gbm Where you been, Socko? Bm7 Gbm I've been where I always am when you're not wearing me on your hand D Gbm Bm7 In a frightening, liminal space between states of being Gbm Not quite dead, not quite alive D Gbm It's similar to a constant state of sleep paralysis Bm7 Gbm Socko, we were just talking about the world and how it works D Gbm Boy, that sounds complicated! Bm7 Do you have anything you'd want to teach us about the world? Gbm D I wouldn't say anything that you probably haven't already said yourself Gbm I don't know about that, Socko E A How about you give it a try? Alright! [Verse 3]
Em A D The simple narrative taught in every history class D B Em Is demonstrably false and pedagogically classist A D Don't you know the world is built with blood? D B And genocide and exploitation Em A D The global network of capital essentially functions D B Em To separate the worker from the means of production A D And the FBI killed Martin Luther King D B Em A Private property's inherently theft D B Em A And neoliberal fascists are destroying the left Gb Bm Daug D D(b5) And every politician, every cop on the street G E A Protects the interests of the pedophilic corporate elite [Chorus]
D E That is how the world works Really? G E A That is how the world works D Gb7 Bm Genocide, the Natives say you got to it first G D That's how it works [Interlude 2]
D Gbm That's pretty intense Bm No shit Gbm What can I do to help? D Read a book or something, I don't know Gbm Bm7 Just don't burden me with the responsibility of educating you Gbm It's incredibly exhausting D I'm sorry, Socko Gbm Bm7 I was just trying to become a better person Gbm D Why do you rich fu*king white people insist on seeing every Gbm Bm7 Gbm socio-political conflict through the myopic lens of your own self-actualization? D This isn't about you Gbm Bm7 So either get with it, or get out of the fu*king way Watch your mouth, buddy Gbm D Remember who's on whose hand here But that's what I-- Gbm Have you not been fu*king listening? Bm We are entrenched in-- Alright, alright Gbm Wait, no please! I don't wanna go back, please D I can't go, I can't go back N.C. Please, please, I'm sorry Are you gonna behave yourself? Yes Yes, what? Yes, sir Look at me Yes, sir That's better [Chorus]
D E That is how the world works G E A That is how the world works D I hope you learned your lesson Gb7 Bm I did and it hurt G D That's how it works
