["Nightbreed"]

[ B / G / E ] w/ Lead Riff A x4

[Verse]:
B                               G
  This used to be a place where we could walk the streets
  A                       E
Unrestricted by imaginary fears
B                                 G
Things didn't seem to be so complicated then
        A                               E
Til you polluted everything that we had here
B                                 G
Our little secret was exposed for all its worth
            A                                E
Stripped of everything that made it good and then
B                               G
We were forced out of the world that we created
    A                             E
And expected to move on and start again

[Chorus]:
B       D      G     E
We live here       today
B       D      G      E
We live here always always
B       D      G     E
We live here       today
B       D      G      E
We live here always always

[ B / G / E ] w/ Lead Riff A x2

[Repeat Verse]:
The money moved right in and sucked the life right out
So the privileged could sit back and enjoy
The things that made this place what it was before you came here
Were the first things you decided to destroy
We walk your streets late at night while you're asleep
Creeping from the sewers oozing from the cracks
We are the blood that pumps the heart you call your home
And any day we're gonna come to take it back

[Repeat Chorus]

B                           D
We live here, we live here, we live here, we live here
G                           E
We live here, we live here
B                           D
We live here, we live here, we live here, we live here
G                           E
We live here, we live here
