Behind Closed Doors by Rise Against
It sounds best with Capo 1 and Capo 2


Em                             D               
Chairs thrown and tables toppled, 

C                              G
Hands armed with broken bottles, 

A                            D
Standing no chance to win but, 
C                  D
We're not running, We're not running, 

Em D C G A D C D x1

Em                                  D
There's a point I think we're missing,

C                                    G
It's in the air we raise our fists in, 

A                              D
In the smiles we cast each other, 

C         D
My sister, my brother, 


Em                             D
About the time we gave up hoping, 

C                                   G
We never find these locks still open, 

A                          D
Stumbling on stones unturned, 

C                 D                 Em    D
The hurt we feel, we all have earned, 



C   G         A        
The lines we cross in search of change,

D   C                  D      Em
But all they see is treason,


Chorus:
 
D  C            D         Em        G           C
  Although we have no obligation to stay alive, 

          D                Em         G          C
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive, 

         D           Em
Breakout, I won't be left here, 

              C       D     Em
Behind closed doors, 



Em                       D
Bonfires burn like beacons, 

C                           G
Guiding the lost and weakened, 

A                            D
Flames dance on crashing waves, 

C                              D
Guiding ships who've gone astray, 

Em                      D          C
Time out, let's stop to think this through, 

              G                 A
We've all got better things to do, 

             D               C
Than talk in circles, run in place, 

        D               Em
Answers inches from our face, 

[Chorus]
  
C x3 D x3 C x3 D x3 Em D Em D

C x3              D x3
Black eyes, broken fingers, 

C x3              D x3        Em
Blood drips and I let it run,

             D    Em                D
Down my lips    into my swollen gums, 

C x3          D x3
When hope is nonexistent,

C x3             D x3          Em
Our instincts all scream "Run!"

         D  Em               D                      C
We never   turn our backs or even bite our tongues, 

[Chorus]
 
D  C            D         Em        G           C
  Although we have no obligation to stay alive, 

          D                Em         G          C
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive, 

         D           Em
Breakout, I won't be left here, 

              C       D     Em
Behind closed doors,

I think it sounds better with Am instead of A
