[Intro]~
C/G


[Verse 1]~
C/G
There are those among us willing

      Am
To get by on anything

       G
Hollow hope of what is coming

          C/G
A lifetime dangled by a string

C/G
But this ocean dives so deeply

       Am
And this river runs so wide

          G
I won't be counted one among them

       C/G
Until my soul is satisfied

C/G
Brick and brick of buried hunger

       Am
Keeping all desire dark

    G
And then we are like lions

      C/G
We are tearing it apart

C/G
There are those among us lying

      Am
Saying nothing is for free

    G
And then we are like lions

          C/G
And we will not leave until we eat

C/G
Playing kings and playing peasants

    Am
Do we get what we are owed

         G
An eagle comes and talks of failure

       C/G
A rabbit offers up its throat

C/G
Will they buy even our breathing

       Am
A river strangled by a dam

          G
Less than one percent are taken

          C/G
So tell me who dries up this land

C/G
Is it worse to see no future

    Am
Is it worse to be afraid

   G
And then we are like lions

       C/G
Pumping fire in our veins

      C/G
We are born with a perfect hunger

      G
We are born with a perfect need

   F
And then we are like lions

         C/G
And we are bearing all our teeth


[Interlude]~
C/G Am G C/G


[Verse 2]~
C/G
It is coming down the mountain

         Am
Fear that hoards you like a cold

            G
It wants to settle in your footprints

         C/G
Keep you still from where you're going

C/G
Aw,.. you think you know of losing

       Am
Aw,.. you doubt of innocence

       G
That big sky still hangs above you

      C/G
Every day just wants to quit

          C/G
There's no light you see to guide you

       G
And it scares you just the same

    F               G
And then we are like lions

       C/G
Nothing dares get in our way

       C/G
See your faithless sails drifting

       G
And your truth just cut apart

   F                G
And then we are like lions

      C/G
We are golden in our hearts

C/G
And then we are like lions

G
We are standing on two feet

C/G            G
Hanging on the kitchen wall

F
For everyone to see

C/G
Get out your banjo

         F
So we can sing

C/G
There are winds that wrap and hold me

         Am
There are whispers in the trees

       G
I cannot hold all that is sacred

       C/G
They are holding onto me

C/G
Kiss the years that all are dying

       Am
Kiss the face that makes you stay

       G
They are in your rhythms walking

       C/G
They are showing you the way

C/G
Breath and breath above a sickness

       G
Shouting threats upon your life

   F                G
And then we are like lions

      C/G
We are fool enough to fight

C/G
It will cheat you in the balance

      G
Taking more than left to live

    F               G
And then we are like lions

       C/G
We are strong enough to give

   F                G
And then we are like lions

      C/G
We are strong enough to give
