[Intro]

C

[Verse 1]

C
Please give me a reason to believe all the lies

'Cause my teachers and the media are ghouls in disguise
G
Abusing their authority to proselytize
F C
But nothing they report to me could change my mind

I need a vacation from the way things have been

Because I'm growing impatient, yeah, it's boiling my skin
G
Had enough manipulation, can you just let me live?
F C
Mmm, live my life

[Chorus]

         Am        G
I'm not gonna give in
F C Am G F
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life
C Am G
Rather die than lay down on my back
F G
Got no white flag to throw
G
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo

[Verse 2]

C
Please give me a reason to give up on myself

You can tell me that it's treason, this is stand and rebel
G
I won't pledge you my allegiance, I'll just bid you farewell
F C
Mmm, and goodbye

[Chorus]

         Am        G
I'm not gonna give in
F C Am G F
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life
C Am G
Rather die than lay down on my back
F G
Got no white flag to throw
G
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo

[Bridge]

   C
I know that on the surface
G
It might seem like I'm just fine
Am
But I can’t eat, I barely sleep
G
Sometimes, I wanna run and hide
F
Feel like I'm dying in this cage
Em
My soul is trapped, I feel confined
F
And I just wish they’d let me out
G
So I could finally live my life
C
I know that on the surface
G
It might seem like I'm just fine
Am
But I can’t eat, I barely sleep
G
Sometimes, I wanna run and hide
F
Feel like I'm dying in this cage
Em
My soul is trapped, I feel confined
F
And I just wish they’d let me out
G
So I could finally live my life

[Chorus]

         Am        G
I'm not gonna give in
F C Am G F
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life
C Am G
Rather die than lay down on my back
F G
Got no white flag to throw
Am G
I'm not gonna give in
F C Am G F
If I have to fight, then I'm willing to give my life
C Am G
Rather die than lay down on my back
F G
Got no white flag to throw
G
This is my Alamo, this, this is my Alamo
