Guitar chords with lyrics

[Verse]
      A chord diagramA minorAm
If it starts with an explosion
       A chord diagramDmDm
Do you end it with a bang?
          A chord diagramE MajorE
First the whistles start a blowin'
         A chord diagramA minorAm
Then the guilty finally hang

        A chord diagramA minorAm
Theres a storm on the horizon
       A chord diagramDmDm
And the waters on the rise
         A chord diagramE MajorE
We're watching history repeatin'
        A chord diagramA minorAm
With the changin' times

       A chord diagramA minorAm
The figureheads keep talking
           A chord diagramDmDm
But they're buried in the sand
     A chord diagramE MajorE
Everyone is pointing fingers
      A chord diagramA minorAm
Everybody plays their hand

     A chord diagramA minorAm
The fix is in, the game is rigged
     A chord diagramDmDm
The pawns are polarized
         A chord diagramE MajorE
You can either pick a side
         A chord diagramA minorAm
Or think outside the picket lines

[Pre Chorus]
         A chord diagramFF
I wonder, is this a revolution
A chord diagramC majorC
Or just mass confusion?
      A chord diagramE MajorE
When every voice is trying to scream
     A chord diagramA minorAm
The loudest for equality
      A chord diagramDmDm
While we argue strategy
A chord diagramA minorAm
Culture and philosophy
        A chord diagramE MajorE
People die in city streets
               A chord diagramA minorAm
All paved with blood and poverty

         A chord diagramFF
The powers with a chosen few
   A chord diagramC majorC
Desperation's just a tool
      A chord diagramE MajorE
That crooked corruption use
    A chord diagramA minorAm
To keep the private prisons full
      A chord diagramDmDm
diamond pockets lined with profits
      A chord diagramA minorAm
Earned from broken lives
         A chord diagramE MajorE                      A chord diagramA minorAm
Misled to pledge by one discrimination under God
I'm sayin


[Chorus]
A chord diagramFF                  A chord diagramC majorC
stop the world, i wanna get off
       A chord diagramG+G                        A chord diagramA minorAm
everything's on fire and it's falling apart
         A chord diagramFF
so if we can't turn back
        A chord diagramC majorC
can we change the course
          A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramFF      A chord diagramG+G     A chord diagramA minorAm
when the fury of the frayed wind blows


[Verse]
      A chord diagramA minorAm
The preachers sell salvation
        A chord diagramDmDm
To the faithful on their knees
      A chord diagramE MajorE
Some prey upon our need and want
      A chord diagramA minorAm
For something to believe

     A chord diagramA minorAm
And some have spun the doctrines
      A chord diagramDmDm
Holy guide toward paradise
   A chord diagramE MajorE                       A chord diagramA minorAm
To justify injustices and centuries of genocide

     A chord diagramA minorAm
Surrender to your temples
       A chord diagramDmDm
To your alters or your shrines
    A chord diagramE MajorE
The weapons used by shepherds
       A chord diagramA minorAm
So the sheep will keep in line

    A chord diagramA minorAm
Conflicting congregations
        A chord diagramDmDm
Thinking only of themselves
        A chord diagramE MajorE
If thats the path to heaven
        A chord diagramA minorAm
Hate to see the road to hell


[Pre Chorus]
   A chord diagramFF
I tell ya' they take a vision
   A chord diagramC majorC
make religion, cause division
         A chord diagramE MajorE
Keep you vacant and complacent
     A chord diagramA minorAm
And dependent on a system

    A chord diagramA minorAm
By creating ways to seperate
  A chord diagramDmDm
Utilizing class and race
   A chord diagramE MajorE
Prejudice perpetuates
        A chord diagramA minorAm
And keeps monopolies in place


         A chord diagramFF
Trickle up or trickle down
         A chord diagramC majorC
Stack or spread the wealth around
        A chord diagramE MajorE
Someones hope is runnin' out
         A chord diagramA minorAm
While fortune feeds a bank account
    A chord diagramDmDm
Empty promise politicians
     A chord diagramA minorAm
Pander to the poor
             A chord diagramE MajorE
While there's money used for funding
         A chord diagramA minorAm
Phony wars on foreign shores

A chord diagramFF                  A chord diagramC majorC
stop the world, i wanna get off
              A chord diagramG+G
Cause they're loading up the bullets
            A chord diagramA minorAm
And they're dropping the bombs
       A chord diagramFF                    A chord diagramC majorC
The propaganda beats to the narrative drums
          A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramFF      A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA minorAm
when the fury of the frayed wind blows


[Verse]
     A chord diagramA minorAm
The criminals in congress
          A chord diagramDmDm
They ain't got no ground to stand
        A chord diagramE MajorE
They're building walls and borders
     A chord diagramA minorAm
Up around the stolen land

    A chord diagramA minorAm
A chord diagramA augmentedA legacy of liberty
     A chord diagramDmDm
Thats how the story goes
     A chord diagramE MajorE
But conquerers rewrote the past
    A chord diagramA minorAm
To suit the status quo

   A chord diagramA minorAm
So is it institutions
       A chord diagramDmDm
Or the state of human kind
      A chord diagramE MajorE
That leads to some exalted
      A chord diagramA minorAm
Over thousands left behind

        A chord diagramA minorAm
They'll push you to you're limit
      A chord diagramDmDm
But in turn, they'll push their luck
       A chord diagramE MajorE
Cause sleeping giants riot
            A chord diagramA minorAm
When they've finally woken up


[Pre Chorus]
                A chord diagramFF                              A chord diagramC majorC
Because they're buying your silence with those shiny advertisments
      A chord diagramE MajorE
They lie and cheat and steal
            A chord diagramA minorAm
And tax your habits so you'll finance
         A chord diagramDmDm
What they hide away behind the scenes
A chord diagramA minorAm
Cover over underneath
A chord diagramE MajorE
Population Explotation
  A chord diagramA minorAm
Victimized by vanity

  A chord diagramFF
Faces in a magazine
   A chord diagramC majorC
Pictures on a pixel screen
  A chord diagramE MajorE
Set a lofty standard
       A chord diagramA minorAm
That disintigrates your self esteem
   A chord diagramFF
Race to chase a plastic dream
   A chord diagramC majorC
Red carpets and Limousines
  A chord diagramE MajorE
Blinded and distracted by
    A chord diagramA minorAm
The flashbulbs of celebrity


[Verse]
         A chord diagramDmDm
But just beyond the limelight
      A chord diagramA minorAm
After fame has run it's course
        A chord diagramE MajorE
They'll throw you to the lions
             A chord diagramA minorAm
While a sold out crowd will roar


[Chorus]
A chord diagramFF                  A chord diagramC majorC
stop the world, i wanna get off
              A chord diagramG+G
Cause there's bodies lying
                      A chord diagramA minorAm
breathless, bleeding, piling up.
      A chord diagramFF
they shook the bottled Rage
         A chord diagramC majorC
now it's bound to erupt
          A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramFF      A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA minorAm
when the fury of the frayed wind blows


[Verse]
        A chord diagramA minorAm
You can think yourself in circles
        A chord diagramDmDm
But the answers never clear
         A chord diagramE MajorE
Is there safety with surveillance?
         A chord diagramA minorAm
Is there freedom without fear?

   A chord diagramA minorAm
Unravel and untangle
        A chord diagramDmDm
All you thought you understood
     A chord diagramE MajorE
And question everything
          A chord diagramA minorAm
Until you question why you should

      A chord diagramA minorAm
We'll change the world with flowers
         A chord diagramDmDm
Or we'll change the world with guns
       A chord diagramE MajorE
We'll plant a seed or dig a grave
     A chord diagramA minorAm
Before its said and done

      A chord diagramA minorAm
But if we come together
        A chord diagramDmDm
All for one and one for all
    A chord diagramE MajorE
Resistence rises up
       A chord diagramA minorAm
Sure as an empire will fall

[Pre Chrous]
       A chord diagramFF
So ill just work toward the future
      A chord diagramC majorC
May it crumble for the better
      A chord diagramE MajorE
Where tyrannical oppressors
         A chord diagramA minorAm
Are just shadows we remember
   A chord diagramDmDm
No judgment based on color
        A chord diagramA minorAm
Or your lover or your gender
    A chord diagramE MajorE
Dismantle older models
         A chord diagramA minorAm
So they cant be reassembled


[Verse]
        A chord diagramA minorAm
But the day the tables turn your way
     A chord diagramDmDm
Watch out for a twist of fate
         A chord diagramE MajorE
Careful not to stumble and become
    A chord diagramA minorAm
The very thing you hate

           A chord diagramA minorAm
Search for something comforting
         A chord diagramDmDm
Seek out something innocent
           A chord diagramE MajorE
But you'll never have those eyes
             A chord diagramA minorAm
That look at life that way again

          A chord diagramA minorAm
So you can take the high road
       A chord diagramDmDm
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
             A chord diagramE MajorE
But you fight fire with fire
     A chord diagramA minorAm
When you're going down in flames

[Chours]
A chord diagramFF                 A chord diagramC majorC
stop the world I wanna get off
              A chord diagramG+G
Cause we're at each other's throats
            A chord diagramA minorAm
and now it's choking my heart
          A chord diagramFF
so we can burn the earth
    A chord diagramC majorC
or extinguish the torch
          A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramFF      A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA minorAm
