Status Quo by Starkid :D

Capo 7th




(repeat this during the first bit of lyrics up til "done")

It starts with not questioning the answers
And giving up before you've begun
It locks all the doors, increases the pressure
And in a flash your time is up before it's done
A7                    C        F
And you won't know how it can feel
To feel at all

         Am Fmaj7 C       G Dm Am
So I say no-o-o to status quo-o-o
F                        C
Who wants to be like the rest
            G~                    G  E7
And deny the best that I'm meant for
      Am Fmaj7 C           G  Dm Am
I wil show-o-ow the status quo-o-o
       F                          C
Who wants to be normal I'll never conform
       Dm                              (intro bit 1x)
I will be content to resent the status quo-o-o

   A7                 F
I'll kick down the walls around me
Am                   G~
They don't know how strong I am
  C                F
I'm not defined by boundaries
Am               G~      F
They could never understand

            Fm Gm Eb7 Bb              F
Cm Gm    Fm
I'm so much more -o-  ore than status quo-o-o
     Eb                Bbm7 ?               F           G~
Who cares about being another pipe dreamer stuck on the bottom floor

       Dm  Fmaj7 C               G  E Am
And I know-o    -ow it's time to go-o- o
              F                             C
so maybe I've gotten everything that I wanted
But I think that I might have made it so
           F  F  Fm
When I said no no no
           C G (?) E
To status quo-o-o-o

[Fmaj7   C]   [G~  G]  [E7 E7sus4]

G     D/F#   A        D
Cause I am a starship ranger
G         D/F#       A      D
I'm gonna do   everything I can
G         D/F#   E        E7
To always be a   starship ranger
             ** Em               Bbm   Cm   Bbm
Cm  Bbm Cm  Bbm Cm  Bbm
Cause it's everything, it's everything
D **
I Am!

End on D

(During the outro, the D shape is moved up and strummed)

Lack of accuracy. Not correct, doesn't sound right at all in parts. Especially chorus. Believe me, i'd know if this song was wrong, this is my favourite! But yeh, not right

Maybe I'll make one for this later but just as a starting point: (starting from the arpeggiated progression in the beginning)

Bm Csus2 D5 (repeat until prechorus)

Em C G
Bm/D Bm Em

Em C G
Bm/D B7/D# Em

Bm Csus2 D5 (last "quo") (arpeggio again)
