Transpose:
[Intro]
Am G Am G
Am G Am G

[Verse 1]
Am GLike a spent gladiator
Am GCrawling in the Colosseum dust
Am GWho can count on his remaining limbs
AmAll the people he can trust
Am GLike the one who stands behind him
Am GCheering him on
Am GEcstatic when he stands defiant
AmWild with abandon when he's gone
[Chorus]
FJust stay alive
Am GKeep your eyes on the pay line
Am Am [Verse 2]
Am GLike a village on the steppe
Am GAbout to get collectivized
Am GWhen the men emerge with rifles from the haystack
AmEverybody looks surprised
Am GLike the mice in the forgotten grain
Am GWay up on the top shelf
Am GLike someone who's found a small town to escape to
AmKeeps one eye on his abandoned, former self
[Chorus 2]
FStay in the game
Am GJust try to play through the pain
F Am GLike a fighter who's been told it's finally time for him to quit
FShow up in shining colours
Am GAnd then stand there and get hit
F F Am Am [Verse 3]
Am GLike the clock that ticks in Dresden
Am GWhen the whole town's been destroyed
Am GLike the nagging flash of insight
AmYou're always desperate to avoid
Am GLike the bloody-knuckled gunman
Am GStill stationed at the breach
Am GLike that board game with the sliders
AmAnd the children on the beach
[Chorus]
FStay alive
Am GMaybe spit blood at the camera
AmJust stay alive
Am GStay forever alive
[Outro] Am Am Am Am
