Cadd9: x32033

G         Bm            Cadd9         G
Why do we sit down when all should be standing?        
    G         Bm               Cadd9    G
And why do we back down at the critical moment?        
     Em       D            Cadd9        G
Like running away from the waves of the ocean
   Em           D              Cadd9        G
We head for the hills with the high tide approaching
   Am          Bm           Cadd9 D       
As sand slips away from the castle.

          G             Bm            Cadd9     G
When it's time to stand upright, then why do we falter?
     G           Bm             Cadd9       G
Like placing our freedom on the sacrificial altar
        Em           D           Cadd9       G
We hold tight to our fears and defend our oppressors
      Em              D          Cadd9         G
As we fight for their lies and become the transgressors
   Am               Bm               Cadd9 D       
As pacifists transform to violent aggressors.

    G          D                        Em                     Cadd9
But I'm only a stranger here, and I'm a long, long way from my home,
         G                          D
And they say I can't change all the things I find strange, 
    Em                   Cadd9
For what can one man do alone?
       Em           D       Cadd9
I say, what can one man do alone?

G           Bm            Cadd9        G
When is the right time to stand up for freedom?
         G           Bm            Cadd9    G
Could it be when you start to fear creating children
         Em        D            Cadd9        G
Who'll inherit the pain and the debt of this nation
       Em            D                Cadd9   G
And be slaves to the banks that cause hyperinflation
        Am                   Bm                 Cadd9   D
Who are masters of commerce, lies, and bad legislation? Woah!

       G             Bm        Cadd9          G
If you looked in the eyes of a thousand young children
        G         Bm            Cadd9       G
Through fences of razors, their innocence stolen
       Em           D      Cadd9        G
As the red flag of tyranny flies in the open
   Am               Bm      Cadd9   D
Is that when you'll finally notice? Woah, wo-o-oah!

    G          D                    Em                     Cadd9
But I'm only a stranger here, I'm a long, long way from my home
         G                          D
And they say I can't change all the things I find strange,
    Em                   Cadd9
For what can one man do alone?
     Em           D       Cadd9
Yes, what can one man do alone?

    Am              Bm                     Cadd9               G  D
I'm only a stranger looking to find better nature in my fellow man
         Bm                     Cadd9                      Em            D          Cadd9
But they keep telling me it's a sin to be free, and that's more than I'm willing to stand

G              Bm          Cadd9    G
Where will you be when the order is given
   G           Bm           Cadd9        G
To censor your mind as free speech is forbidden
   Em          D              Cadd9         G
As martyrs for peace from the world will be driven
 Em         D          Cadd9     G
Away by the sound of a bellowing thunder
    Am                Bm                Cadd9   D
And choke on the blood of a dream going under

   G        Bm          Cadd9     G
As arrogant men tear up our constitution
         G       Bm         Cadd9   G
And from ev'ry direction we cry revolution
Em         D          Cadd9      G
Standing together and without permission
Em           D            Cadd9     G
Soldiers for Truth in the War of Attrition
    Am                Bm           Cadd9   D
The love of our country as our ammunition? Woah, wo-o-oah!

    G          D                    Em                     Cadd9
But I'm only a stranger here, I'm a long, long way from my home
        G                       D
And I'm going to change all the things I find strange
    Em                Cadd9
For I am not one man alone

G              D               Em                     Cadd9
Yes I'm only a stranger, I'm a long, long way from my home
        G                       D
And I'm going to change all the things I find strange
    Em                   Cadd9
For I know that I'm not alone
    Em      D        Cadd9
Yes I know, I'm not alone
     G
Not alone
