[Intro]
Em Cadd9 D Am D

[Verse 1]
Em                       Cadd9                  D
You've been hanging your conscious on the fence
      Am        D
Cause you can't hold it
Em       Cadd9               D
An empty promise laid to rest
  Am      D
A life is stolen
Em             Cadd9      D
And there will be no consequence
    Am       D
For what you broken
Em        Cadd9           D           D Am
Don't you know, what your father said

[Pre-Chorus]
                Am D
We are the only
                 D
We are the brave
                   Am D
We are America, but

We are to blame

[Chorus]
Em
Stand up, Stand up,

Can you hear me now
G
All I, All I

Really want now is
C
Your voice, Your voice

Screaming out loud, saying
D
We can make it, or we can make it
Em
Fist up, Fist up!

Don't put your hands down
G
All I, All I

Really want now is
C
Your voice, Your voice

Screaming out loud, saying
D
We can make it, or we can make it

[Verse 2]
Em                    Cadd9               D
We've been biting our tongues for far too long
Am       G
And they know it
Em                Cadd9              D
They told us that hope would carry on
     Am            G
They really had us going
Em             Cadd9      D
And there will be no consequence
         Am        D
For your simple hypnosis
Em        Cadd9           D           D Am
Don't you know, what your father said

[Pre-Chorus]
                Am D
We are the only
                 D
We are the brave
                   Am D
We are America, but

We are to blame

[Chorus]
Em
Stand up, Stand up,

Can you hear me now
G
All I, All I

Really want now is
C
Your voice, Your voice

Screaming out loud, saying
D
We can make it, or we can make it
Em
Fist up, Fist up!

Don't put your hands down
G
All I, All I

Really want now is
C
Your voice, Your voice

Screaming out loud, saying
D
We can make it, or we can make it

There's one part missing. It goes like m: I drew a line up in the sand and watched it turn to dust, America(and it continues). The lyrics are at Alec's YouTube in the description of this song
