VERSE 1
Am                    F               G
It starts with not questioning the answers
Am         F                 Em
And giving up before you've begun
Am                  F                   G
It locks all the doors, increases the pressure
Am                            F              C
And in a flash your time is up before it's done
Am                    F        C
And you won't know how it can feel
            G
To feel at all


CHORUS
         Am F C          G F Am
So I say no-o-o to status quo-o-o
F                        C
Who wants to be like the rest 
            G      
And deny the best that I'm meant for
      Am  F C              G  F Am
I wil show-o-ow the status quo-o-o
       F                          Am
Who wants to be normal I'll never conform
       C             G                  Em Am G
I will be content to resent the status quo-o-o


VERSE 2
   Am                 F
I'll kick down the walls around me
C                    G
They don't know how strong I am
  Am                F
I'm not defined by boundaries
C                G        F
They could never understand


CHORUS    
               Am F C               G F Am
I'm so much more-o-ore than status quo-o-o
     F                                 C                        G                   
Who cares about being another pipe dreamer stuck on the bottome floor

[key change]
         Bm A D             A Em Bm
And I know-o-ow it's time to go-o-o
             Bm                             D
so maybe I've gotten everything that I wanted
                      Em           A
But I think that I might have made it so
          Bm  A  Em
When I said no no no
           D  A7 Bm
To status quo-o-o-o

[G   D]    [A]  [E]

G      D    A        D
Cause I am a starship ranger
G           D     A      D
I'm gonna do everything I can
G           D              Bm
To always be a starship ranger
             G D Em           G D Em
Cause it's everything, it's everything
G  D
I Am!


FIN.
