Alec Benjamin - America: chords

Fm                       C#                   D#
You've been hanging your conscious on the fence
      A#m        C
Cause you can't hold it
Fm         C#               D#
An empty promise laid to rest
  A#m      C
A life is stolen

And there will be no consequence
For what you've broken
Don't you know,
what your father said?

C#             D#
We are the only
We are the brave
C#                 D#
We are America, but
We are to blame

Chorus:
Fm
Stand up, Stand up,
Can you hear me now
G#
All I, All I
Really want now is
C#
Your voice, Your voice
Screaming out loud, saying
D#
We can make it, or we can make it
Fm
Fist up, Fist up!
Don't put your hands down
G#
All I, All I
Really want now is
C#
Your voice, Your voice
Screaming out loud, saying
D#
We can make it, or we can make it

We've been biting our tongues for far too long
And they know it
They told us that hope would carry on
They really had us going
There will be no consequence
For your sinful hypnosis
Don't you know, what your father said?

We are the only,
we are the brave
We are America,
but we are to blame

Chorus

I drew a line out in the sand
And then I gave it up
I watched it turn to dust
America
Another year has gone again
I draw another one
And this time I won't run
America
