Key: D
(Verse 1) 

D 
And I see papers and papers 
F 
Stacked up in formation 
C 
That mean much before 
G 
They're lining the fire 

D 
As the bottomless heat goes 
F 
To harness your anger 
C 
Your blood and 
G                 D 
Your deepest desire 

(Verse 2) 

Because there's no truth stolen 
F 
That's been ever brought forward 
C 
By the minds of the writers 
G 
Looking face down on the gutter 

D 
Cause this world's full of thinkers 
F 
And suffragette speakers 
C                                  G 
Who deny that they ever wear a dress 
                                    D 
Oh, this god forsaken town is in a mess 


D And all the truths been let out loose F Is desperate to amuse C As it grabs you by the throat G And strings out all the times you've used D But now you don't belong F You whisper when you speak C You turn yourself to nighttime G D You're trying to find your feet
C So let me run, Lord G Lord, Lord, Lord Run... D Lord, just let me run C So let me run, Lord G Lord, Lord, Lord D Lord, just let me run (Verse 3) D But as the morning awakens F That light sends a shudder C The twist of hope that helped you down G Is left to rest and stir D You back down a hallway F To flourish the darkness C And fool yourself G You did it all for her D And him, and her
D And all the truths been let out loose F Is desperate to amuse C As it grabs you by the throat G And strings out all the times you've used D But now you don't belong F You whisper when you speak C You turn yourself to nighttime G D You're trying to find your feet
C So let me run, Lord G Lord, Lord, Lord Run... D Lord, just let me run C So let me run, Lord G Lord, Lord, Lord D Lord, just let me run Outro D But I've seen your face before F Rich boy playing poor C Ravaging the whores G Ignoring constant calls D Now you don't belong F You whisper when you speak C You turn yourself to nighttime G You're trying to find your feet C So let me run, Lord G Lord, Lord, Lord Run... D Lord, just let me run C So let me run, Lord G Lord, Lord, Lord D Lord, just let me run
