[Verse]
      Am
If it starts with an explosion
       Dm
Do you end it with a bang?
          E
First the whistles start a blowin'
         Am
Then the guilty finally hang

        Am
Theres a storm on the horizon
       Dm
And the waters on the rise
         E
We're watching history repeatin'
        Am
With the changin' times

       Am
The figureheads keep talking
           Dm
But they're buried in the sand
     E
Everyone is pointing fingers
      Am
Everybody plays their hand

     Am
The fix is in, the game is rigged
     Dm
The pawns are polarized 
         E
You can either pick a side 
         Am
Or think outside the picket lines

[Pre Chorus]
         F
I wonder, is this a revolution 
C
Or just mass confusion?
      E
When every voice is trying to scream
     Am
The loudest for equality
      Dm
While we argue strategy 
Am
Culture and philosophy
        E
People die in city streets
               Am
All paved with blood and poverty

         F
The powers with a chosen few
   C
Desperation's just a tool
      E
That crooked corruption use
    Am
To keep the private prisons full
      Dm
diamond pockets lined with profits
      Am
Earned from broken lives
         E                      Am
Misled to pledge by one discrimination under God
I'm sayin

[Chorus]
F                  C
stop the world, i wanna get off 
       G                        Am
everything's on fire and it's falling apart 
         F
so if we can't turn back 
        C                 
can we change the course
          G          F      G     Am
when the fury of the frayed wind blows

[Verse]
      Am
The preachers sell salvation 
        Dm
To the faithful on their knees
      E
Some prey upon our need and want
      Am
For something to believe 

     Am
And some have spun the doctrines
      Dm
Holy guide toward paradise 
   E                       Am
To justify injustices and centuries of genocide 

     Am
Surrender to your temples
       Dm
To your alters or your shrines
    E
The weapons used by shepherds
       Am
So the sheep will keep in line

    Am
Conflicting congregations 
        Dm
Thinking only of themselves
        E
If thats the path to heaven
        Am
Hate to see the road to hell

[Pre Chorus]
   F
I tell ya' they take a vision
   C
make religion, cause division 
         E
Keep you vacant and complacent 
     Am
And dependent on a system

    Dm
By creating ways to seperate
  Am
Utilizing class and race
   E
Prejudice perpetuates 
        Am
And keeps monopolies in place


         F
Trickle up or trickle down
         C
Stack or spread the wealth around
        E
Someones hope is runnin' out
         Am
While fortune feeds a bank account
    Dm
Empty promise politicians 
     Am
Pander to the poor
             E
While there's money used for funding
         Am
Phony wars on foreign shores

[Chorus]
F                  C
stop the world, i wanna get off 
              G                      
Cause they're loading up the bullets 
            Am
And they're dropping the bombs 
       F                    C
The propaganda beats to the narrative drums 
          G          F      G    Am
when the fury of the frayed wind blows 

[Verse]
     Am
The criminals in congress
          Dm
They ain't got no ground to stand
        E
They're building walls and borders
     Am
Up around the stolen land

    Am
A legacy of liberty
     Dm
Thats how the story goes
     E
But conquerers rewrote the past
    Am
To suit the status quo

   Am
So is it institutions 
       Dm
Or the state of human kind
      E
That leads to some exalted 
      Am
Over thousands left behind

        Am
They'll push you to you're limit
      Dm
But in turn, they'll push their luck
       E
Cause sleeping giants riot
            Am
When they've finally woken up

[Pre Chorus]
                F                              C
Because they're buying your silence with those shiny advertisments
      E
They lie and cheat and steal
            Am
And tax your habits so you'll finance

         F
What they hide away behind the scenes
C
Cover over underneath
E
Population Explotation
  Am
Victimized by vanity

  F
Faces in a magazine
   C
Pictures on a pixel screen
  E
Set a lofty standard 
       Am
That disintegrates your self esteem

   F
Race to chase a plastic dream
   C
Red carpets and Limousines 
  E
Blinded and distracted by 
    Am
The flashbulbs of celebrity

         F
But just beyond the limelight
      C
After fame has run it's course
        E
They'll throw you to the lions
             Am
While a sold out crowd will roar

[Chorus]
F                  C
stop the world, i wanna get off
              G
Cause there's bodies lying
                      Am
breathless, bleeding, piling up.
      F
they shook the bottled Rage
         C
now it's bound to erupt 
          G          F      G    Am
when the fury of the frayed wind blows

[Verse]
        Am
You can think yourself in circles
        Dm
But the answers never clear
         E
Is there safety with surveillance?
         Am
Is there freedom without fear?

   Am
Unravel and untangle 
        Dm
All you thought you understood
     E
And question everything
          Am
Until you question why you should

      Am
We'll change the world with flowers
         Dm
Or we'll change the world with guns
       E
We'll plant a seed or dig a grave
     Am
Before its said and done

      Am
But if we come together
        Dm
All for one and one for all
    E
Resistence rises up
       Am
Sure as an empire will fall

       Am
So ill just work toward the future
      Dm
May it crumble for the better
      E
Where tyrannical oppressors 
         Am
Are just shadows we remember

[Pre Chorus]
   F
No judgment based on color
        C
Or your lover or your gender
    E
Dismantle older models 
         Am
So they cant be reassembled 
        Dm
But the day the tables turn your way
     Am
Watch out for a twist of fate
         E
Careful not to stumble and become 
    Am
The very thing you hate

           F
Search for something comforting
         C
Seek out something innocent 
           E
But you'll never have those eyes
             Am
That look at life that way again
          Dm
So you can take the high road
       Am
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
             E
But you fight fire with fire 
     Am
When you're going down in flames 

[Chours]
F                 C
stop the world I wanna get off
              G
Cause we're at each other's throats 
            Am
and now it's choking my heart 
          F
so we can burn the earth
    C
or extinguish the torch 
          G          F      G    Am
when the fury of the frayed wind blows
