Rise Against – People Live Here Chords and Lyrics
Artist : Rise Against Song : People Live Here [Intro] : Am F C C (x2) [Verse I] : Am F C (C) My god is better than yours. Am F C G F And the walls of my house are so thick I hear nothing at all. C G Am F C G' I followed you out in the storm, but it carried you off. F C G Am F (F) G (G) And I burned every picture of yours, was that not enough? Am F C (C) My gun is bigger than yours, Am F C G F So let's arm the masses and see what the bastards do then. C G Am F C G' Walking tall once set us apart, now we're down on all fours. F C G Am F (F) G (G) Do you cry my name in the dark, like I do yours? [Chorus 1] : Dm Am C G These storms are getting stronger now, trusses all bend and sway. Dm Am C G Lightning hits, the power goes out in the fray. F (Cmaj9/G) Am C G As the waves crash high and the shoreline disappears, F (F) (F) G I will scream to the sky: "Hey, people live here!" [Interlude] : Am F C C (x2) [Verse 2] : Am F C (C) My dreams are not unlike yours, Am F C G F They long for the safety and break like a glass chandelier. C G Am F C G' But there's laughter and oh there is love, just past the edge of our fears. F C G Am F (F) G (G) And there is chaos when push comes to shove, but it's music to my ears. [Chorus 2] : Dm Am C G May you be in heaven before the devil knows you're dead. Dm Am C G May these winds be always at your back. F (Cmaj9/G) Am C G 'Cause when we're all just ghosts and the madness overtakes us, F (F) (F) G We will look at the ashes and say: "People lived here." [Bridge] : G Am C F F (x2) Am C F (F) From the penthouse to the holy martyr, Am C F (F) Sea to shining sea, Am C F (F) From the coffins full of kindergartners, Am C F (F) Is this what you call free? Am C F (F) From the hate that drips from all your crosses, Am C F (F) Are your hands so clean? Am C F (F) And the wildfire, it is spreading far, Am C G (G) From sea to shining sea. [End] : F (Cmaj9/G) Am C G When we're all just ghosts and the madness overtakes us, F G I will scream to the sky, yeah I'll scream to the sky, F G Am Yeah I'll scream to the sky: "Hey, people live here."
