[verse 1]

            E                      G
So tell me family now what do you think? 

                C                    A
Watch it all go down the great big sink,

               E                   G
watch how the scum it rises to the top.

            C                         A
Don't you wonder when it's all gonna stop? 
 
           E                 G
Sometimes I wonder how we do sleep,
 
              C                  A
 serving the dodgy companies we keep.

                   E                           G
All kicking and scrounging for the very first place 

                C                A
- dictionary defintion of a rat race.

                E                 G
Pay off those losers we elect to lead. 

                   C                          A
stealing from the mouths that we're meant to feed. 

                E                   G
Enslaving the very clothes upon my back,

             C                      A
 I feel the sting but I hear no crack, no crack, I'm sayin..




[Chorus]
C                     G
Running through the fire,

                     C
running through the flame,

                     G 
Running through the hatred,

                    C
pushing through the blame, 

                     G                 D
running through the hopelessness and shame, 

                     C           
Revolution already underway


[Verse 2]
            E                      G
Big heavy pirates man digging those holes,

                C                    A
 messing with something that they can't control.

            E                      G
Trespassing lands where they don't belong,

                C                    A
 all I hear is screaming whee there once were songs.

             E                      G
I got my brothers there fighting those wars,

                C                    A
 fighting over scraps and scraping their sores. 

            E                      G
Under a blanket of a fire and pride that can't keep us warm for the cold 
inside, inside, 

 C
I'm saying


[Chorus]


C                     G
Running through the fire,

                     C
running through the flame,

                     G 
Running through the hatred,

                    C
pushing through the blame, 

                     G                 D
running through the hopelessness and shame, 

                     C           
Revolution already underway



[verse 3]
            E                      G
So tell me when you think we're gonna rise?

                C                    A
Wake from this slumber wipe the tears from our eyes? 

            E                      G
Yes from this nightmare yes I must now wake,

       C                    A
 open my fist my destiny I take! 

            E                      G
Good people sick and tired of being pushed around,

              C                    A
 we call them kings but I see no crown. 

            E                      G
Tell me when you think we'll just stand up? 

                C                    A
Say enough is enough is enough, enough, I'm saying


[Chorus]


C                     G
Running through the fire,

                     C
running through the flame,

                     G 
Running through the hatred,

                    C
pushing through the blame, 

                     G                 D
running through the hopelessness and shame, 

                     C           
Revolution already underway
