Like punching under water

It's the chemical weapon
Dm7
For the war that's raging on inside

We're never gonna win the world

We're never gonna stop the war
Dm7               Gm7
We're never gonna beat this

If belief is what we're fighting for X2


[Bridge]

Dm7 Gm7 C Dm7
Dm7                Gm7

Ever surrender, with their life forline

Gm7 C F B


[Chorus]

Dm7               Gm7
We're never gonna win the world

We're never gonna stop the war
Dm7               Gm7
We're never gonna beat this

If belief is what we're fighting for X2

Dm7 Gm7 Gm7 C
Dm7          Gm7              Gm7                C
What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand

Belief can
          Gm7 C
Belief can
Dm7           Gm7              Gm7                C
What puts the folded flag inside his mother's hand

Belief can

Dm7 Gm7 Gm7 C...fade out

Nearly right. The B chords should be Bb.
