MARINA & THE DIAMONDS - Savages

This song is from the album FROOT(2015), released on Mar 16, 2015.
I liked the message that she gave through this song. She talks about how we are savages, and how the culture of today is. The background music felt simple, yet it conveyed the power of the message clearly. The energy could be felt in her voice as well. Overall, this is a great song and deserves a listen.

[INTRO] Em D Am C x3
[VERSE]
Em               D
Murder lives forever
             Am
And so does war
Am                     C
It's survival of the fittest
C                   Em
Rich against the poor
Em                  D
At the end of the day
              Am
It's a human trait
                    C
Hidden deep down inside of our DNA

Em
One man can build a bomb
D
Another run a race
Am
To save somebody's life
      C
And have it blow up in his face
Em
I'm not the only one who
D
Finds it hard to understand
Am
I'm not afraid of God
C
I am afraid of Man


         Em              C
Is it running in our blood
        Am            D
Is it running in our veins
         Em            C
Is it running in our genes
      Am      D
Is it in our DNA
          Em           C
Humans aren't gonna behave
       Am               D
As we think we always should
      Em          C        Am    D
Yeah, we can be bad as we can be good

[CHORUS]
 Em                 Am            D
Underneath it all, we're just savages
C                       Am         D
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
Em                     Am        D
How could we expect anything at all
            C                Am
We're just animals, still learning how to crawl

[VERSE]
Em
We live, we die
D
We steal, we kill, we lie
Am
Just like animals
           C
But with far less grace
Em
We laugh, we cry
D
Like babies in the night
Am
Forever running wild
C
In the human race


Em              D
Another day, another tale of rape
Am                        C
Another ticking bomb to bury deep and detonate
Em                     D
I'm not the only one who finds it hard to understand
Am
I'm not afraid of God
C
I'm afraid of Man

       Em              C
You can see it on the news
        Am           D
You can watch it on TV
         Em               C
You can read it on your phone
         Am            D
You can say it's troubling
         Em          C
Humans aren't gonna behave
       Am               D
As we think we always should
      Em          C        Am    D
Yeah, we can be bad as we can be good

[CHORUS]
 Em                 Am            D
Underneath it all, we're just savages
C                       Am         D
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
Em                     Am        D
How could we expect anything at all
            C                Am
We're just animals, still learning how to crawl
 Em                 Am            D
Underneath it all, we're just savages
C                       Am         D
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
Em                     Am        D
How could we expect anything at all
            C                Am
We're just animals, still learning how to crawl
 Em                 Am            D
Underneath it all, we're just savages
C                       Am         D
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
Em                     Am        D
How could we expect anything at all
            C                Am
We're just animals still learning to behave

[BRIDGE]
         C                         Em
All the hate coming out from a generation
           D                                 Am
Who got everything, and nothing guided by temptation
          C                     Em
Were we born to abuse, shoot a gun and run
         D                          C
Or has something deep inside of us come undone?
          Am                   Em
Is it a human trait, or is it learned behavior
            D                                       C
Are you killing for yourself, or killing for your savior?

[CHORUS]
 Em                 Am            D
Underneath it all, we're just savages
C                       Am         D
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
Em                     Am        D
How could we expect anything at all
            C                Am
We're just animals, still learning how to crawl
 Em                 Am            D
Underneath it all, we're just savages
C                       Am         D
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
Em                     Am        D
How could we expect anything at all
            C                Am
We're just animals still learning to behave
