Nahko Bear and the Medicine for the People Manifesto Capo 3 Intro: Play C for 4 bars, and at the end of each play this riff: -----------------------| -----------------------| -----------------------| ---0-h2----------------| ------------2-3--------| ----------3------------| (C) C7 This is real talk, this is non-stop F C G It is a loop now tongue and mind C C7 Played off the sidewalk, straight to your boom-box F C G How it travels from ear to memory C C7 Well this is medicine, there is a message within F G C And each will find it in their own time (C) C7 This is music, this is how I use it F C G It makes you move and move the movement C C7 This is how I focus, knowing it's not hopeless F C G (hold out) But it sure starts with me and ends on a whole note C C7 Musical medicine, this is my healin' F G C For past and present future things to come (C) C7 I see people stressin', over space and possession F C G Out of fear and a need for visual aids of our abundance C C7 Give me examples, or something tangible F C G Something I can get my hands on and find real meaning C C7 Where is the medicine? Well I've been searching F G C And I suppose each will find their own kind (C) C7 Well everything's at stake, it makes it hard to concentrate F C G And there are men who see a war and see a paycheck C C7 Such different programming, to live so fearfully F C G Terror this, and terror that, terrible reality C C7 There is no medicine on the television F G C So turn it off and turn yourself around (C) C7 And let's just face it, the world's fuckin' racist F C G Even the most peaceful of us gets caught in the trend C C7 To live cohesively is almost a fantasy F C G (hold out) And we gotta know it starts with humbling our egos C C7 What is the medicine, for cultural woundin' F G C Has its moments, has its melodies, has its time C C7 Well I was listenin' to the outgoing seasons F C G About climate change and some of the reasons C C7 When the sky opened, like I've been hopin' F C G And there came horses by the thousands C C7 And there was thunder on their tongues, and lightning on their minds F G C And they were singing this old melody from some other time F C C/B Am They sang, "Don't waste your ha - a - te, F C C/B Am Rather, gather and crea - a - te F G Be a service, be a sensible person C C/B Am Use your words and don't be nervous F C You can do this; you've got purpose G F C Find your medicine and use it." F C C/B Am They sang, "Don't waste your ha - a - te, F C C/B Am Rather, gather and crea - a - te F G Be a service, be a sensible person C C/B Am Use your words and don't be nervous F C You can do this; you've got purpose G F C Find your medicine and use it."
