[Verse]

G                 C         D        G
It seemed like everyone I knew was dying
C                  D                 G
I looked in the mirror and I was on fire
G            D             C               G
Somebody yelled out "hey, stop, drop, and roll!"
G                            Em           D            G
I said "that might save my skin, but it won't save my soul.
G                    C            D            G
That might save my skin, but it won't save my soul" 

G             D             C      G
You swallow hard and you bottle it up
G           C             D        G
Try to pretend you're a half full cup
G                      D                       G
Believe what they're feeding, you're eating it up
G                  Em          D            G
While I'm reading books about how they're corrupt
G             C          D             G
I'm reading books about how they're corrupt 


[Chorus]

D               C                    G
He says he protecting us but he's a liar
D            C              G
I know deep down that it's down to the wire
D               C        G 
My heart will stop if I put out the fire
D                C
As long as I'm burning
D                C
I'll keep on yearning
D             C
To save the world
C         D             G
Not sure how but I'm learning 


[Verse]

G                C           D         G
Since what they call the beginning of man
G               C            D           G
Blood has been shed for the rape of the land
G               C        D         G
They call it civilized, I call it cr*p
G         Em         D            G
Our only hope is to look further back
G         C          D            G
Our only hope is to look further back 

G              C             D         G
If we really want for this world to survive
G                C           D         G
We'll just take what we need to stay alive
G          C            D            G
It's a mistake to just take and not give
G              Em            D        G
It's not true that we must murder to live
G               C           D         G
It's not true that we must murder to live 


[Chorus]

D               C                    G
He says he protecting us but he's a liar
D            C              G
I know deep down that it's down to the wire
D               C        G 
My heart will stop if I put out the fire
D                C
As long as I'm burning
D                C
I'll keep on yearning
D             C
To save the world
C         D             G
Not sure how but I'm learning 


[Verse]

G                 C             D            G
And telling the truth the best way that I'm able
G           C                         G
Placing my cards all face up on the table
G                 D                C           G
It's okay to be scared, you don't have to act tough
G              Em           D        G
Take all that pain and turn it into love
G               C           D        G
Take all that pain and turn it into love 

G               C          D            G
And let your emotions be fuel to your flame
G          C         D       G
Being on fire will keep you awake
G              D              C              G
If somebody yells out "hey, stop, drop, and roll!"
G                        Em           D            G
Say "that might save my skin, but it won't save my soul.
G                         C      D             G
That might save my skin, but it won't save my soul"
