Light Up The Night, off Act II. Listen here: http://protomen.com/lightupthenight/

Verse chords: Dm Bb G
Chorus: F Dm Bb C


Verse 1:

Dm                                                       Bb
This city's sleeping like a soldier trapped inside of an iron lung
   Dm                                                                Bb
Machines can keep you breathing but what happens when you find a new world's begun
Dm                                                       Bb
   Flip the switch and turn it off, you won't be able to breathe
                        G
So either way you're a casualty


Verse 2:

Dm                                                              Bb
I've got this burning like my veins are filled with nothing but gasoline
Dm                                                          Bb
And with this spark, it's gonna be the biggest fire they've ever seen
Dm                                                       Bb
Comin' down, you'll never run, either way it's all gonna burn
                          G
The only way that they'll ever learn
                  Dm
Gotta turn it off? Flip a switch 


Chorus:

             F
Light up the night
           Dm
There is a city that this darkness can't hide
                Bb                          F
There are the embers of the fires gone out
                          Bb
But I can still feel the heat on my skin
          F
And this mess that we're in
             Bb
But you and I
C              Bb
Maybe you and I
C                     Bb
We can still make it right
                 C              Dm
Maybe we can bring back the light


Verse 3:

At the heart of the city there is a building that looks down out on all there is
And the man in the tower controls it all without raising a single fist
It's like they gathered up the City, sold it to the devil, and now
It's gone to hell and they wonder how

Verse 4:

We were men who would follow any man who would turn the wheels
Now the wheels are spinnin' out of control, what would they do if we held them still?
If you destroy the working parts what you get is a broken machine
A beacon of light from a burning scream
(Emily!)

Chorus:

Light up the night
There is a city that this darkness can't hide
There are the embers of the fires gone out
But I can still feel the heat on my skin
And this mess we're in
But you and I
Maybe you and I
We can light up the night.

But we can light up the night!
There is a city that this darkness can't hide
There are the embers of the fires gone out
But I can still feel the heat on my skin
And this mess we're in
But you and I
Maybe you and I
We can light up the night!

There is a city that this darkness can't hide
There is a fire that will burn through the streets of the city
And we will stand in the light, we will stand in the light
You and I – maybe you and I –
We can bring back the light!
There is a city that this darkness can't hide
There is a fire that will burn through the streets of the city
And we will stand in the light, we will stand in the light
You and I
You and I
We'll bring back the light

i'm pretty sure this should be tuned flat, but it sounds fine without it, just playing along with the song would be flat
