Verse 1 : 
                 Cm                           
Let's start with hope
                             Cm               
I threw in the middle like a skipping stone
    Cm           Cm                             
The ripples won, son of a gun
Cm                                            
Some would not have thought so
      G                       G7         
But I stand here commander in chief 
                Cm                            
And I take that seriously
   
Verse 2 : 
              Cm                              
But along the way
        Cm                                    
A rogue ripple turned tidal wave
   Cm                  Cm                       
In reaction to, what I tried to do
  Cm                                          
A rebirth of a nation's hatred
G                         G7                     
Red, white, and blue  Is black in there too?
Cm                                            
   Seriously?

Bridge 1 : 
Eb                                            
One man
              G                              
Rewriting the book on bad behavior
Cm                                            
    Maybe cheats the neighbors
Ab                                            
    Feels he gets what they payed for
Eb                                            
We can't
               G                             
Pat him on the back and send him on through,
Cm                        Ab                    
  No man's ignorance will ever be his virtue

        G                                    
Is this best we can be?
G7                Cm                            
     Seriously?

Verse 3 : 
              Cm                              
Let's talk of fear
          Cm                                  
And why I don't bring it in here
       Cm                 Cm                    
It's a dangerous word, it spooks the heard
       Cm                                     
And we all bleed in the stampede
G                                G7              
Fear makes a false friend indeed
              Cm                              
And I take it seriously

Pre Bridge : 
            Cm                                
But hear me now,
           Cm                                 
Before the truth gets drowned out
     Cm                                       
By a demagogue flexing
  Cm                                          
A demagogue flexing
     G                 G7                       
He's history repeating

Bridge 2 : 
Eb                                            
Angry?
     G                                       
Am I angry?
               Cm                    
You ask if I'm angry 
    Ab                                        
And I'm at a loss for words

      Eb                                      
After all we've done,
      G                                      
Every battle hard one,
      Cm                                      
Every hair gone gray
        Ab                                    
In this name of this place
     Eb                                       
In a history plagued
        G                                    
With in-credible mistakes
        Cm                                    
Still I pledge my allegiance to these
  G                      G7                   
U-nited Divided States
Cm
Seriously?

Verse 4 : 
               Cm                             
Let's end with why
       Cm                                     
It's a question I
        Cm              Cm                      
Want to ask of us, as a populace
Cm                                            
Why not take our time
       G                   G7             
Or the weight of the story   
                                          
   Seriously
