This is my interpretation of 'Running with the wild things' the new 2016 single from Against the Current
and their second release with record label Fueled by Ramen ahead of debut album 'In our bones' out May 
2016!
ATC are about to go on their Running with the wild things tour of mainland Europe
for more information about this, visit: http://www.atcofficial.com/tour/
You can also find them on YouTube: http://youtube.com/againstthecurrentny
Or at http://www.fueledbyramen.com/

CHORDS USED:             E-A-D-G-B-E
------------             -----------
D                --      0-0-0-2-3-2
G                --      3-2-0-0-3-3
Am               --      0-0-2-2-1-0
Em               --      0-2-2-0-0-0


NOTE: The D doesn't sound exactly right to me in all places. I did try a whole host of other chords but I 
couldn't quite get one to match! If you do find a better fit then please do let me know in the comments 
section below! Thanks

Top tips: If playing an acoustic version, perhaps try switching out the Em for an Em7 (0-2-2-0-3-3) in 
places to create a slightly different sound! Also, try palm muting when playing the bridge for a sound
that is closer to the original.

NOTE: (Thanks to user MattySievers for this!) E in the verses should really be a B for two counts then 
E for two counts as the guitars and bass really do seem like they're sliding from the B up five octaves 
to the E.   <----- this version? Better for being true to the actual song as a band performance
                   My original version? Better for acoustic and solo performances

[Intro]
Em   G   D


[Verse]
Em
Oo they don't hear us
        G               D
Read us bedtime stories from their textbooks
Em
Oo try to reign us in
G              D
Blind to our intelligence


Em
Standardization of the masses
G                D
Give us a number fail or pass us
Em
Education, manipulation
G                   D
Decide our fate but never ask us


C      D        Em
We're about to boil over
C        D         Em
You can't keep us down forever


[Chorus]
C          G           D         Am
We got too big for the cage, you locked us up in
C               G           D            Am
Let's mark this down as the day, that we started something
C                 G
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
D               Am
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
C         G         D          
Tearing through the streets
D
Running with the wild things


Em   G   D   


[Verse]
Em
Hey why you waiting
     G                  D
Quit carving notches to count the days ‘cause
Em
They're losing power
        G              D
See ‘em growing weaker by the hour


C      D        Em
We're about to boil over
C        D         Em
You can't keep us down forever


[Chorus]
C          G           D         Am
We got too big for the cage, you locked us up in
C               G           D            Am
Let's mark this down as the day, that we started something
C                 G
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
D               Am
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
C         G         D          
Tearing through the streets

Just realised I made a small mistake there in the last chorus! The first two lines I have labelled as no chords, only the first one should be so, the second is as the previous choruses were!

I personally think in the verses there's a "am" instead of the D major :)
Thanks for uploading!
