[Intro]

C/G 
(hammer-on g string)
No lyrics 

[Verse 1]

C/G
There are those among us willing
       Am 
To get by on anything
        G 
Hollow hope of what is coming
            C/G 
A lifetime dangled by a string

C/G 
But this ocean dives so deeply
         Am 
And this river runs so wide
            G
I won't be counted one among them
         C/G 
Until my soul is satisfied

C/G 
Brick and brick of buried hunger
        Am 
Keeping all desire dark
     G 
And then we are like lions
       C/G
We are tearing it apart

C/G 
There are those among us lying
       Am 
Saying nothing is for free
     G 
And then we are like lions
            C/G 
And we will not leave until we eat

C/G 
Playing kings and playing peasants
      Am 
Do we get what we are owed
          G   
An eagle comes and talks of failure
         C/G 
A rabbit offers up its throat

C/G 
Will they buy even our breathing
        Am 
A river strangled by a dam
           G 
Less than one percent are taken
           C/G 
So tell me who dries up this land

C/G 
Is it worse to see no future
      Am 
Is it worse to be afraid
    G 
And then we are like lions
        C/G 
Pumping fire in our veins

       C/G 
We are born with a perfect hunger
       G
We are born with a perfect need
    F 
And then we are like lions
          C/G 
And we are bearing all our teeth

[Interlude] 

C/G Am G C/G 

[Verse 2]

C/G 
It is coming down the mountain
          Am  
Fear that hoards you like a cold
             G 
It wants to settle in your footprints
          C/G 
Keep you still from where you're going

C/G 
Aw, you think you know of losing
        Am 
Aw, you doubt of innocence
         G 
That big sky still hangs above you
       C/G 
Every day just wants to quit

           C/G 
There's no light you see to guide you
        G 
And it scares you just the same
     F               G 
And then we are like lions
        C/G 
Nothing dares get in our way
 
         C/G 
See your faithless sails drifting
         G 
And your truth just cut apart
    F                G 
And then we are like lions
       C/G 
We are golden in our hearts

C/G 
And then we are like lions
G
We are standing on two feet
C/G            G 
Hanging on the kitchen wall
F
For everyone to see
C/G          
Get out your banjo
          F 
So we can sing

C/G             
There are winds that wrap and hold me
          Am 
There are whispers in the trees
         G 
I cannot hold all that is sacred
         C/G 
They are holding onto me

C/G 
Kiss the years that all are dying
         Am 
Kiss the face that makes you stay
         G 
They are in your rhythms walking
         C/G 
They are showing you the way

C/G 
Breath and breath above a sickness
         G 
Shouting threats upon your life
    F                 G 
And then we are like lions
       C/G 
We are fool enough to fight
        
C/G 
It will cheat you in the balance
       G 
Taking more than left to live
     F               G 
And then we are like lions
        C/G 
We are strong enough to give

    F                G 
And then we are like lions
       C/G 
We are strong enough to give
