Verse 1: (use same picking pattern)
G/C       G/B           A7sus   G
     Well, I can't stop staring at myself;
G/C   G/B       A7sus           G
     My face reflected in this empty plate.
G/C  G/B        A7sus            G
     I can't decide if it's the devil
G/C  G/B        A7sus    G
     Or if it's just something I ate.
G/C   G/B              A7sus         G
     'Cause he's been down there all morning.
G/C   G/B          A7sus   G
He's patiently waiting at my gate.
G/C   G/B          A7sus   G
He's throwing rocks at my window.
G/C   G/B          A7sus   G
Hey won't you come on out and play with me?


Verse 2:
G/C     G/B  A7sus    G
    But everyday when I get up
G/C G/B         A7sus   G
    I see folks trading in their crowns
G/C G/B           A7sus    G
    for all these paper or plastic lives;
G/C     G/B   A7sus   G
    An opiate for the masses hounds.
G/C     G/B           A7sus   G
    And pride, like a vestige of lives lost.
G/C          G/B           A7sus     G
    It's the stench of the old folks coming 'round.
G/C G/B          A7sus  G
    Now with the news I heard today,
G/C   G/B           A7sus          G
    I can't tell if this world is lost or found.

Chorus 1:
C2       D2                  C2
     You go; I'll be waiting here.
             D2              C2
     And I'm awake, I cannot sleep.
             D2                    Am7
     So I'll sit upon this rock is you.

     I ain't standing up for nothing.

Intro x2

Verse 3:
Well, I've never seen my congressman,
But I can't deny that he exists.
'Cause I've seen his legislation pass;
I've seen his name on the ballot list.
Same, I can't deny this fallen world.
Though not my home it's where I live.
How can I preserve and light the way
for a world that I can't admit I'm in?

Chorus 2:
'Cause I know who I say You are,
But these crows can't be made to stop.
So I'll sit denying by this fire
I ain't standing up for nothing

Intro x1

Lack of interest leads to,
Lack of knowledge leads to,
Lack of perspective leads to,
Lack of communication leads to,
Lack of understanding leads to,
Lack of concern leads to,
This complacency denotes,
This approval denies

Verse 4:
But I can't stop staring at myself;
It's my face reflected in this empty plate.
And I know that it's the devil.

Intro x1

Chorus 3:
So You lead; and I'll be close behind.
So You speak and I'll hang on Your words.
You've got to lift me from this hardened tree,
'Cause I ain't standing up for nothing.

Intro x4

End on G
