And…


D5 A5(V) D5 A5(V)


C5	  E	   C5	 E
 Like a spent gladiator
  A5
Crawling in the Colosseum dust
C5	  E		 C5	     E
  Who can count on his remaining limbs
A5
   All the people he can trust


C5	  E		    C5	     E
 Like the one who stands behind him
A5
   Cheering him on
C5	 E		   C5	 E
Ecstatic when he stands defiant
A5
  Wild with abandon when he's gone


	    F5
Just stay alive
C5			   G5
   Keep your eyes on the palla


A5(V)


C5	   E		    C5	 E
   Like a village on the steppe
A5
 About to get collectivized
	 C5		 E		  C5	   E
When the men emerge with rifles from the haystack
A5
   Everybody looks surprised


C5	  E		C5	      E
Like the mice in the forgotten grain
A5
  Way up on the top shelf
	     C5		   E		    C5	    E
Like someone who's found a small town to escape to
	   A5
Keeps one eye on his abandoned former self


	     F5
Stay in the game
C5				 G5
 Just try to play through the pain


D5	      F5				 E5		  C5
   Like a fighter who's been told it's finally time for him to quit
		   A5		     E5			E
Show up in shining colors and then stand there and get hit


D5 A5(V) D5 A5(V)


C5	     E			 C5	E
  Like the clock that ticks in Dresden
A5
  When the whole town's been destroyed
C5	    E		     C5	     E
  Like the nagging flash of insight
A5
  You're always desperate to avoid


C5	     E		    C5	   E
  Like the bloody knuckled gunman
A5
  Still stationed at the breach
C5	    E			 C5	 E
  Like that board game with the sliders
A5
   And the children on the beach


	F5
Stay alive
C5			       G5
Maybe spit some blood at the camera
	     F5
Just stay alive
C5		   G5
   Stay forever alive

Am
