Every Bloody Emperor

From: Alessandro Iacopini

Verses and chorus are all the same
6/8 time.

Intro on G-

G-                 D-         G-          C     F
By this we are all sustained: a belief in human nature
G- F C D5 G-
And in justice and parity...all we have is the faith to carry on.


G- D- G- C F
Imperceptible the change as our votes become mere gestures
G- F
And our lords and masters determine to cast us
C D5
In the roles of serfs and slaves
G-
In the new empire's name.
C F Bb G-
Yes and every bloody emperor claims that freedom is his cause
C F G- D5 G-
As he buffs up on his common touch as a get-out clause.
