------------------

C#
Chairs thrown and tables toppled,
G#
Hands armed with broken bottles,
A#m
Standing no chance to win but,
F#
We're not running, we're not running.

C#, G#, A#m, F#

C#
There's a point I think we're missing,
G#
It's in the air we raise our fists in,
A#m
In the smiles we cast each other,
F#
My sister, my brother.

C#
About the time we gave up hoping
G#
We'd ever find these locks still open,
A#m
Stumbling on stones unturned,
F#m                                   C# G#
The hurt we feel, we all have earned.
              A#m
The lines we cross in search of change,
     F#
But all they see is treason.

C#                      G#                A#m
Although we have no obligation to stay alive
                            F#                    C#
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive
C#                      G#
(Break out) I won't be left here
               A#m  F#
Behind closed doors.

C#
Bonfires burn like beacons,
G#
Guiding the lost and weakened.
A#m
Flames dance on crashing waves,
F#
Guiding ships who've gone astray

C#                                   G#
Time out, let's stop and think this through,
                               A#m
We've all got better things to do,
                              F#
Than talk in circles, run in place,
                               F#
Answers {are} inches from our face.

C#                      G#                A#m
Although we have no obligation to stay alive
                            F#                    C#
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive
C#                      G#
(Break out) I won't be left here
               A#m  F#
Behind closed doors.

C#, G#, A#m, F# (optional)

C#
Black eyes, broken fingers,
G#                       A#m
Blood drips and I let it run
         F#
Down my lips into my swollen gums.
C#
When hope is non-existent,
G#                        A#m
Our instincts all scream "Run",
          F#                               C#
We never turn our backs or even bite our tongues.

(single strums here in these next two lines)
C#                      G#                A#m
Although we have no obligation to stay alive
                            F#                    C#
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive

C#                      G#
(Break out) I won't be left here
               A#m  F#
Behind closed doors.

C#                      G#                A#m
Although we have no obligation to stay alive
                            F#                    C#
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive

C#                      G#
(Break out) I won't be left here
               A#m  Bb
Behind closed doors.
