[Chorus]
         Am               F
I'm not afraid to take a stand
     C                 G
Everybody come take my hand
                       Am
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
         F
Whatever weather, cold or warm
             C
Just let you know that, you're not alone
      G
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road


[Verse]
                Am
You can try and read my lyrics off

of this paper before I lay 'em
    F
But you won't take this thing out

these words before I say 'em
               C
Cause ain't no way I'm let you stop me

from causing mayhem
       G
When I say 'em or do something I do it,

I don't give a damn
         Am
What you think, I'm doing this for me,

so fuck the world
        F
Feed it beans, it's gassed up,

if a thing's stopping me
      C
I'mma be what I set out to be,

without a doubt undoubtedly
    G
And all those who look down on me

I'm tearing down your balcony
Am
No if ands or buts don't try to ask him why or how can he
F
From Infinite down to the last Relapse album he's still
C
Shit, and whether he's on salary, paid hourly
  G
Until he bows out or he shit's his bowels out of him
                Am
Whichever comes first, for better or worse
                    F
He's married to the game, like a fuck you for christmas
              C
His gift is a curse, forget the earth he's got the urge
                          G
To pull his dick from the dirt and fuck the universe


[Chorus]
         Am               F
I'm not afraid to take a stand
     C                 G
Everybody come take my hand
                       Am
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
         F
Whatever weather, cold or warm
             C
Just let you know that, you're not alone
      G
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road


[Verse]
                          Am
Ok quit playin' with the scissors and shit,

and cut the crap
                    F
I shouldn't have to rhyme these words

in the rhythm for you to know it's a rap
                 C
You said you was king, you lied through your teeth
                   G
For that fuck your feelings,

instead of getting crowned you're getting capped
           Am
And to the fans, I'll never let you down again, I'm back
  F
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
         C
Let's be honest, that last Relapse CD was "ehhhh"
        G
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
       Am
Relax, I ain't going back to that now
              F
All I'm tryna say is get back, click-clack BLAOW
                       C
Cause I ain't playin' around,

there's a game called circle and I don't know how
G
I'm way too up to back down
                      Am
But I think I'm still tryna figure this crap out
                        F
Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn't
                                 C
This fucking black cloud's still follow's me around,

but it's time to exercise these demons
            G
These motherfuckers are doing jumping jacks now!


[Chorus]
         Am               F
I'm not afraid to take a stand
     C                 G
Everybody come take my hand
                       Am
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
         F
Whatever weather, cold or warm
             C
Just let you know that, you're not alone
      G                                          Am
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road


[Bridge]
                      F
And I just can't keep living this way
    C                           G
So starting today, I'm breaking out of this cage
             Am
I'm standing up, Imma face my demons
            F
I'm manning up, Imma hold my ground
          C
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
                    G
Time to put my life back together right now


[Verse]
            Am
It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
        F
Admittedly I probably did it subliminally for you
     C
So I could come back a brand new me,

you helped see me through
    G
And don't even realise what you did, believe me you
Am
I been through the ringer,
                                     F
but they can do little to the middle finger
                                                C
I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of,
                                            G
my world, haters can make like bees with no stingers

and drop dead, no more beef flingers
        Am
No more drama from now on, I promise to focus soley
   F
On handling my responsibilities as a father
               C
So I solemnly swear

to always treat this roof like my daughters
    G
And raise it, you couldn't lift a single shingle lonely
          Am
Cause the way I feel,

I'm strong enough to go to the club
      F
Put a corner pub and lift the whole liquor counter up
          C
Cause I'm raising the bar, I shoot for the moon
                 G
But I'm too busy gazing at stars, I feel amazing and


[Chorus]
         Am               F
I'm not afraid to take a stand
     C                 G
Everybody come take my hand
                       Am
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
         F
Whatever weather, cold or warm
             C
Just let you know that, you're not alone
      G                                               \
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road
