"race for the prize"

here are the chords used:

   Fmaj7    Em7    F/C   Cmaj7    G      F      C
e|---0-------x------x------x------3------1------0-|
B|---1-------3------1------0------3------1------1-|
G|---2-------0------2------0------0------2------0-|
D|---3-------0------3------2------0------3------2-|
A|---3-------2------3------3------2------3------3-|
E|---x------(0)-----x------x------3------1------x-|

N.B it's important to dampen the strings not being used in the intro to really emphasise the
walking down bass pattern of E D C B (the E in Fmaj7, the D in Em7, the C in C/F and the
B in Cmaj7) so keep the chords really tight and it'll sound great. The open E string on the
Em7 chord is optional, but i think it makes the chord sound "dirty".

[Intro]
this is the keyboard part arranged for guitar with added chords for your strumming pleasure:

C                   F
Two scientists were racing
        G              C
For the good of all mankind
            F
Both of the side by side
C               G
So Determined
C                F
Locked in heated battle
        G                  C
For the cure that is their prize
            F
But it's so dangerous
    C
But they're determined

Fmaj7
Theirs is to win
Em7
If it kills them
Fmaj7
They're just humans
     G
With wives and children

C              F
Upwards to the vanguard
          G               C
Where the pressure is too high
          F
Under the microscope
C                    G
Hope against hope

C               F
Forging for the future
       G                C
But to sarcrifice their lives
             F
Both of them side by side

So determined

I think instead of ...the pressure is to high/under the microscope... it is ...the pressure is to hide/under the microscope... Just a thought.

I would suggest Em for the "is their prize" and "is too high" parts, but I may be wrong.

C/F in intro - the actual chord is Dm7.

E-x (you could play this with an F root and it sounds OK, thumb over fret 1)Mostly right though, chord-wise.
