Alec Benjamin - Alamo: chords

D
Please give me a reason to believe all the lies
'Cause my teachers and the media are ghouls in disguise
  A
Abusing their authority to proselytize
     G                                         D
But nothing they report to me could change my mind

I need a vacation from the way things have been
Because I'm growing impatient, yeah, it's boiling my skin
Had enough manipulation, can you just let me live?
Mmm, live my life

Chorus:
         Bm        A
I'm not gonna give in
      G       D              Bm          A       G
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life
        D            Bm         A
Rather die than lay down on my back
     G         D        A
Got no white flag to throw
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo

Please give me a reason to give up on myself
You can tell me that it's treasonous to stand and rebel
I won't pledge you my allegiance, I'll just bid you farewell
Mmm, and goodbye

Chorus

    D
I know that on the surface
    A
It might seem like I'm just fine
            Bm
But I can’t eat, I barely sleep
              A
Sometimes, I wanna run and hide
               G
Feel like I'm dying in this cage
             F#m
My soul is trapped, I feel confined
            G
And I just wish they’d let me out
            A
So I could finally live my life
    D
I know that on the surface
    A
It might seem like I'm just fine
            Bm
But I can’t eat, I barely sleep
              A
Sometimes, I wanna run and hide
               G
Feel like I'm dying in this cage
             F#m
My soul is trapped, I feel confined
            G
And I just wish they’d let me out
            A
So I could finally live my life

Chorus:
I'm not gonna give in
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life
Rather die than lay down on my back
Got no white flag to throw
I'm not gonna give in
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life
Rather die than lay down on my back
Got no white flag to throw
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo
