Billy Talent - Man Alive!: chords

Chorus:
Dm
Man Alive!
       Gm
Don't stand aside!
       A
While people
       A#
make demands
    F
At first they'll
          Gm
take your liberties
     A#
Then tie them
           Dm
round your hand
Dm
Man Alive!
       Gm
Don't stand aside!
       A
While people
       A#
make demands
      F
When time goes by
     Gm
some day you'll find
       A#
Their words are
            A Dm
your command

Dm                      Dm
Well the bloodsucker society
is looking for recruits
Dm                       Dm
I took a sip of their sobriety
                          Dm
it doesn't taste that good

        Gm           Dm
Well at first you're fine
     Gm          Dm
with working overtime
    Gm       Dm
10 years go by til you're
 A
caught up in the grind
             Gm       Dm
And can't escape the fact
      Gm              Dm
your youth is fading fast
       Gm          Dm
These times won't last
                 A#7
and once they're gone
                 A
they don't come back

Chorus

Dm
They try to fill you
with anxiety until
you bite the hook
They drop a line
of notoriety they
got a big chequebook

           Gm
Oh they'll turn
    Dm
you blind for a
Gm           Dm
nickel and a dime
      Gm         Dm
Don't waste your time
            A
with their simple
frame of mind
            Gm       Dm
And can't escape the fact
     Gm              Dm
your youth is fading fast
      Gm          Dm
These times won't last
                 A#7
and once they're gone
                 A
they don't come back

Chorus

Dm             D#
Attention all personnel!
              E
Stand single file
               F      A#
resistance is futile!
            Dm
We're gonna raise your hopes up

raise your hopes up
        D#
Just to knock them down
knock them down
            E
You got a bright bright future
bright bright future
             F
If you can shut your mouth
A#
shut your mouth
           Dm
And if you work
the front lines
work the front lines
           D#
To keep us safe and sound
safe and sound
              E
You won't be compensated
Compensated
             F
Until you're in the ground
A#
in the ground
          A              A#
So don't waste a single breath
           A       A#
On what society expects
   A#  A    A#    A
If history don't lie
           A#  A
They're gonna take you
Gm     F      E      Dm
for a ride until you die!
