 Verse 1:
 [Am]You are born into this world,
 Looking [G]down the barrel of a [Am]gun.
 [Am]And those who hold the [G]gun,
 Want you to [Am]work fast and die young.
 [Am]And if you don't work,
 [G]If you don't obey,
 They'll [Am]make you live in fear 'til your dying day.
 Those [G]who govern hold the gun,
 To [Am]your head.
 With [G]religions, corporations 'proud of the [Am]blood,
 [Am]They have shed.
 
 Chorus 1:
 [C]Whether it's God or the Bomb,
 [C]It's just the same.
 [Am]It's only fear under another [G]name.
 [C]Whether it's God or the 'Bomb,
 [C]It's just the same.
 [Am]It's only fear under another [G]name.
 
 Verse 2:
 [Am]And the corporate snakes coming in to feed,
 On [G]that pathetic fact known as [Am]human greed.
 Skin [G]and bone being raked over those hot coals,
 This [Am]dump never seems to give time to human soul.
 [Am]And if all those things that we have [G]learnt,
 [G]No time for questions, [Am]you'll just get burnt.
 NC G Am
 (Listen) You'll ?just get burnt.
 
 Chorus 2:
 [C]Whether it's God or the 'Bomb,
 [C]It's just the same.
 [Am]It's only fear under another [G]name.
 [C]Whether it's God or the 'Bomb,
 [C]It's just the same.
 [Am]It's only fear under another [G]name.

 Verse 3:
 [Am]And those words crush you flat,
 Like your [G]skull's under a brick.
 And [Am]the fear's so damn strong,
 That it [G]makes you sick.
 [Am]And you can see right through those e[G]yes,
 [G]That make you fear, that make you [Am]lie.
 [Am]And you're taught to hold high,
 Yet you [G]wonder why.
 [G]Dumb [Am]values forced upon you by the,
 [G]Living l[Am]ie.
 
 Chorus 3 & 4 (Repeat):
 [C]Whether it's God or the 'Bomb,
 [C]It's just the same.
 [Am]It's only fear under another [G]name.
 [C]Whether it's God or the 'Bomb,
 [C]It's just the same.
 [Am]It's only fear under another [G]name.
 
 Chorus 5:
 [C]Whether it's God or the 'Bomb,
 [C]It's just the same.
 [Am]It's only fear under another [G]name.

 Notes.
 1. 'Max Q', (named after Ollie's dog) consisted of Michael Hutchence (vocals and
 songwriting) and Ollie Olsen (songwriting and production), who were accompanied by key members
 of the post-punk scene in Melbourne, Australia; most of whom had previously collaborated
 with Olsen. The project followed on from Hutchence and Olsen's work on the film, 'Dogs in
 Space', where they had first met.
 2. "Ollie isn't supposed to hang around with pop stars and I'm not supposed to hang
 around with punk types. The band is made up of rowdy friends from Melbourne. These guys are
 good musicians who've never had a chance. Most of them have never even been in a studio.
 These are real underground people who don't have any money. Some of them have never been
 on a plane before. They were worried that working with me, they'd lose their underground
 status" - Michael Hutchence (1989).
