Intro: E

A
Imagine no fresh water to quench your thirst 
E
Half an hour in the shower 

made me realize that 
A
those fanatics, worldsavers

got their point across 
E
There will always be 

feast and famine 

But where do we draw the line? 
A                  E
Too long I've been blind 

I've been joking 'bout the things 
             A
That I know nothing about 
               E
It's easy to deny 

When the world is on fire


        A
We get high 
            E
We bath in gold 
            B
Someone's fighting for their lives
         Dbm
While we play with our phones 
        A
We get high 
                E
We fight to get by 
            B                                    Dbm
While that bowl of water could have saved their life 
               A
saved their life

Interlude: E

A
Complaining 

All the time we're craving something more 
E
Just a click on a screen 

that's all we'll ever be 
A
Meanwhile a mother 

had to sell her child into slavery 
E
There will always be 

feast and famine 

But where do we draw the line? 
A                       E
For too long we've been blind 

We've been joking 'bout the things that 
         A
we know nothing about 
               E
It's easy to deny 

When the world is on fire 


        A
We get high 
            E
We bath in gold 
            B
Someone's fighting for their lives 
          Dbm
While we play with our phones 
        A
We get high 
                 E
We fight to get by 
            B                                    Dbm 
While that bowl of water could have saved their life 
               A
saved their life

Interlude: E

       A                                E
The least we can do is to be grateful, 
       A                                E
the least we can do is to be grateful 
       B                                Dbm
The least we can do is to be grateful 
       B                                Dbm
The least we can do is to be grateful
            B  
It’s the least we can do, but what we do is we deny it
Dbm
close our eyes from the truth while the world is on fire 

        A
We get high 

Interlude: A       E       A       E


When the world is on fire 
       A
We get high 
            E
We bath in gold
           B
Someone's fighting for their lives 
         Dbm
While we play with our phones 
        A
We get high 
                E
We fight to get by 
           B                                     Dbm 
While that bowl of water could have saved their life 
               A
saved their life is not the case, the song will be rejected.
