If you tolerate this your children will be next

Song Author James Dean Bradfield Lyrics by: Nick Jones Performer: Manic Street Preachers Submitted by: Anonymous
[Am]    [Em]    [F]    [C]    
[Am]    [Em]    [F]    [C]    
[Am]The future teaches you to [Em]be alone
The [F]present to be afraid and cold[C]    
'So if [F]I can shoot rabbits
[C]then I can shoot fascists'[G]    

[Am]Bullets for your [Em]brain today
But [F]we'll forget it all again [C]    
Monuments [F]put from pen to paper
[C]Turns me into a gutless [G]wonder

And if you [Dm]tolerate this
[Am]then your children will be next [G]    
And if you [Dm]tolerate this
[Am]then your children will be next, [G]    
will be next, will be next, will be next

[Am]Gravity keeps [Em]my head down
[F]Or is it maybe sham[C]e  
At [F]being so young [C]and being so vain [G]    

[Am]Holes in your [Em]head today
but [F]I'm a pasci[C]fist
I've [F]walked La Ramblas
[C]but not with real intent [G]    

And if you [Dm]tolerate this
[Am]then your children will be next [G]    
And if you [Dm]tolerate this
[Am]then your children will be next, [G]    
will be next, will be next, will be next

[Dm]    [Am]    [G]    
[Dm]    [Am]    [G]    
'And [Dm]on the street to[Am]night-
An old man [G]plays
with [Dm]newspaper cuttings [Am]of his glory[G]days

And if you [Dm]tolerate this
[Am]then your children will be next [G]    
And if you [Dm]tolerate this
[Am]then your children will be next, [G]    
will be next, will be next, will be next

[Dm]    [Am]    [G]    
[Dm]    [Am]    [G]    



The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
'So if I can shoot rabbits
then I can shoot fascists'

Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

And if you tolerate this
then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
then your children will be next,
will be next, will be next, will be next

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain

Holes in your head today
but I'm a pascifist
I've walked La Ramblas
but not with real intent

And if you tolerate this
then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
then your children will be next,
will be next, will be next, will be next



'And on the street tonight-
An old man plays
with newspaper cuttings of his glorydays

And if you tolerate this
then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
then your children will be next,
will be next, will be next, will be next
