Intro 

D G Fsus4 D G Fsus4 D Fsus4 D

(Verse 1)

[D]
And I see papers and papers
[F]
Stacked up information
[C]
That mean much before
[G]
They're lining the fire

[D]
As the bottomless heat goes
[F]
To harness your anger
[C]
Your blood and
[G]                 [D] F  D
Your deepest desire

(Verse 2)
D
Because there's no truth stolen
[F]
That's been ever brought forward
[C]
By the minds of the writers
[G]
Looking face down on the gutter

[D]
Cause this world's full of thinkers
[F]
And suffragette speakers
[C]                                  [G]
Who deny that they ever wear a dress
                                    [D]
Oh, this god forsaken town is in a mess

(Chorus)

[D]
And all the truths been let out loose
[F]
Is desperate to amuse
[C]
As it grabs you by the throat
[G]
And strings out all the times you've used

[D]
But now you don't belong
[F]
You whisper when you speak
[C]
You turn yourself to nighttime
[G]                          [D]
You're trying to find your feet

           [C]
So let me run, Lord
              [G]
Lord, Lord, Lord

Run...
                    [D]
Lord, just let me run
            [C]
So let me run, Lord
               [G]
Lord, Lord, Lord
                    [D]
Lord, just let me run

Riff

D G Fsus4 D G Fsus4 D Fsus4 D

(Verse 3)

[D]
But as the morning awakens
[F]
That light sends a shudder
[C]
The twist of hope that helped you down
[G]
Is left to rest and stir

[D]
You back down a hallway
[F]
To flourish the darkness
[C]
And fool yourself
                     [G]
You did it all for her
                 [D]           
And him, and her

(Chorus)
[D]
And all the truths been let out loose
[F]
Is desperate to amuse
[C]
As it grabs you by the throat
[G]
And strings out all the times you've used

[D]
But now you don't belong
[F]
You whisper when you speak
[C]
You turn yourself to nighttime
[G]                          [D]
You're trying to find your feet


           [C]
So let me run, Lord
              [G]
Lord, Lord, Lord

Run...
                    [D]
Lord, just let me run
            [C]
So let me run, Lord
               [G]
Lord, Lord, Lord
                    [D]
Lord, just let me run

Outro

[D]
But I've seen your face before
[F]
Rich boy playing poor
[C]
Ravaging the w***es
[G]
Ignoring constant calls

[D]
Now you don't belong
[F]
You whisper when you speak
[C]
You turn yourself to nighttime
[G]
You're trying to find your feet


          [C]
So let me run, Lord
              [G]
Lord, Lord, Lord

Run...
                    [D]
Lord, just let me run
            [C]
So let me run, Lord
               [G]
Lord, Lord, Lord
                    [D]
Lord, just let me run
