Chorus 1:
Dm
Man Alive!
       Gm
Don't stand aside!
      A
While people
       Bb
make demands
   F
At first they'll
          Gm
take your liberties
     Bb
Then tie them
           Dm
round your hand
Dm
Man Alive!
       Gm
Don't stand aside!
      A
While people
       Bb
make demands
     F
When time goes by
     Gm
some day you'll find
      Bb
Their words are
            A Dm <--Drumbeats
your command


Verse 1:
Dm                       Dm
  Well the bloodsucker society
is looking for recruits
Dm                         Dm
  I took a sip of their sobriety
                          Dm
it doesn't taste that good


Refrain 1: old song DEVIL ON MY SHOULDER vibe here haha
        Gm           Dm
Well at first you're fine 
     Gm          Dm
with working overtime
   Gm       Dm
10 years go by til you're 
A
caught up in the grind
            Gm       Dm
And can't escape the fact 
     Gm              Dm
your youth is fading fast
      Gm          Dm
These times won't last 
                 Bb7
and once they're gone 
                A
they don't come back


(Repeat Chorus 1)


Verse 2:
Dm
  They try to fill you
       Dm
with anxiety until 
you bite the hook
Dm
  They drop a line
       Dm
of notoriety they
                    Dm
got a big chequebook


Refrain 2:
           Gm
Oh they'll turn
    Dm
you blind for a
Gm           Dm
nickel and a dime
      Gm         Dm
Don't waste your time
           A
with their simple
frame of mind
            Gm       Dm
And can't escape the fact 
     Gm              Dm
your youth is fading fast
      Gm          Dm
These times won't last 
                 Bb7
and once they're gone 
                A
they don't come back


(Repeat Chorus 1)
