Intro : [E5][G5][C5][A5] x2


1st verse :
           E5                     G5
So tell me family now what do you think?
             C5                     A5
Watch it all go down that great big sink
              E5                G5
Watch how the scum rises to the top
                 C5                   A5
Don't you wonder when it's all gonna stop?
            E5                G5
Sometimes I wonder how we do sleep
            C5                 A5
Serving the dodgy companies we keep?
                 E5                         G5
All kickin and scroungin for the very first place
           C5                  A5
Dictionary definition of a rat race?
            E5                  G5
Pay off the loosers we elect to lea
                  C5                          A5
Stealing from the mouths that we're meant to feed
              E5                   G5
Enslaving the very clothes off our backs
            C5                 A5
I feel the sting but i hear no crack, no crack, I'm saying



Chorus :
C5                   G5
 Running through the fire
                    D5
Running through the flame
                    D5
Running through the hatred
                    C5
Pushing through the blame
               G5               D5
Running through hopelessness and shame
            D5          E5      G5    C5   A5
Revolution already underway



2nd verse :
          E5                        G5
Big heavy pirates man digging those holes
              C5                          A5
Messing with something that they can't control
            E5                       G5
Trespassing lands where they don't belong
                C5                      A5
All I hear is screaming whee there once were songs
         E5                            G5
I got my brothers there fighting those wars
               C5                       A5
Fighting over scraps and scraping their sores
        E5                    G5      
Under a blanket of a fire and pride 
                   C5                          A5
That can't keep us warm for the cold inside, inside, I'm saying



Chorus :
C5                   G5
 Running through the fire
                    D5
Running through the flame
                    D5
Running through the hatred
                   C5
Pushin through the blame
               G5               D5
Runnin through hopelessness and shame
            D5          (X)
Revolution already underway


solo : [E5][G5][C5][A5] x4


           E5                         G5
So tell me when you think we're gonna rise?
                C5                             A5
Wake from this slumber wipe the tears from our eyes? 
              E5                       G5
Yes from this nightmare yes I must now wake
        C5                A5
Open my fist my destiny I take
            E5                              G5
Good people sick and tired of being pushed around,
             C5                 A5
We call them kings but I see no crown
        E5                              G5
Tell me when you think we'll just stand up? 
      C5                  A5
Say enough is enough is enough, enough, I'm saying



Chorus :
C5                   G5
 Running through the fire
                    D5
Running through the flame
                    D5
Running through the hatred
                    C5
Pushing through the blame
                G5               D5
Running through hopelessness and shame
            D5          (C5)
Revolution already underway



Bridge :
C5              G5                   D5 
 Take back your feet, take back your hands
               D5                    C5
Take back your words, take back your lands
               G5                    D5
Take back your heart, take back your pride
             D5
Don't got to run, don't got to....
