  G#5  C5 C#5  F5 D#5 C#? F#5


Intro: G#5 C5 E#5 C#5 D#5 X2

    G#5                 C#5
Yeah, we say making changes
                D#5
starts in the little things you do
  G#5      C#5
Revolution begins at home
D#5
but for most of us it ends at two

F5
We're doing something 
C#5
we're making changes
F5
Like changing the brand
C#5 
of crap we buy
F5                C#5
We say it makes a difference 
       D#5
but that's just another lie.

[Intro Chord Progression] X2

        G#5          C#5
It used to be us and them 
    D#5
and you and me
           G#5             C#5
And now we can't reach our potential
D#5 
without a common enemy

F5
A real war
C#5
to fight against
F5
instead of our petty 
C#5
disagreements
F5        C#5            D#5
How can I rationalize my life 
during wartime lie?


Bridge: C#5 C#? C#5 G#5 F#5 G#5 X3

Then: C#5 D#5


  C#5                G#5 F#5 G#5
A call to action and no reaction
C#5              G#5 F#5   G#5
Taking our lives in our own hands
C#5         G#5    F#5    G#5
Instead of sitting around and talking 
C#5                       D#5
about the same old shitty bands

    F5         
The war's going 
C#5
on right now and 
F5              
I'm not doing 
C#5
anything about it
F5                 
Without a crowd I'm
C#5
not so loud
  F5          C#5      D#5
I can't do anything by myself


But that's just another lie

[Intro Chord Progression] X2
End on G#5

I don't know who that is but I figured I would just post that while I was telling you the name of the chord...

F#5/C# is the name of the chord. All right.
