[Verse 1]
F#m
A     G D A
So I told him
A     G  D A
that He'd better
A             C                         G
shut his mouth and do his job like a man

             E                         A
And he answered, "listen father,
A          G   D A
I will never
A    G  D     A
kill another.
A                     C
He thinks he's better
                G
than his brother that died.
                F#                                  G
What the hell does he think he is doing,
            E
to his father
                                 A
who brought him up right?

[Chorus]
A                Em                               Am7
Take your place on the Great Mandala
        Am11                              Am9          Em
As it moves through the brief moment of time
            C                             Em
Win or lose now, you must choose now
Am11                   Am9                  Am6
If you lose, you're only losing your life
Am11                   Am9                  Am6
If you lose, you're only losing your life
Am11                   Am9                  Am6
If you lose, you're only losing your life

[Verse 2]
F#m
A     D E A
Tell the jailer
A     D   E  A
not to bother
A              C                            G
with his meal of bread and water today.
            F#                              G
He is fasting 'til the killing's over.
A     G D      A
He's a martyr,
A       G      D         A
He thinks he's a prophet
A           C                       G
But he's a coward, he's just playing a game.
              F#                   G
He can't do it, he can't change it
                 E                                     A
It's been going on for ten thousand years,

[Chorus]
A               Em                              Am7
Take your place on the Great Mandala
        Am11                              Am9          Em
As it moves through the brief moment of time
             C                            Em
Win or lose now, you must choose now
Am11                    Am9                   Am6
If you lose, you're only losing your life
Am11                    Am9                   Am6
If you lose, you're only losing your life
Am11                    Am9                   Am6
If you lose, you're only losing your life

[Verse 3]
F#m
A       G D    A
Tell the people
A      G D   A
they are safe now.
A            C                           G
Hunger stopped him, he lies still in his cell.
               E                              A
Death has gagged his accusations.
A     G   D    A
We are free now,
A     G    D   A
We can kill now,
A           C
We can hate now
G
Now we can end the world.
                F#
We're not guilty,
               G
He was crazy
              E                                               A
And it's been going on for ten thousand years.

[Chorus]
A               Em                              Am7
Take your place on the Great Mandala
         Am11                              Am9           Em
As it moves through your brief moment of time
           C                             Em
Win or lose now, you must choose now
       Am11                    Am9                    Am6
And if you lose, you've only wasted your life.
