    B5	  D5   Em

B5, D5 and Em should be played such that they are slightly arpeggiated.

I believe there is also an acoustic guitar very low in the mix, its quite difficult to hear 
as it blends in with the percussion, what its likely to be playing are the chord indicated below.

Verse Chords
 Em       G      Em     D2  (X4)
 Am7  	   D2     Cmaj7  D2

Hang your collar up inside
Hang your dollar on me
Listen to the water still
Listen to the causeway,you are
Man educated primitive and wild
Welcome to the occupation

Here we stand and here we fight
All your fallen heroes
Held and died and skinned alive
Listen to the Congress fire
Offering the educated primitive and loyal
Welcome to the occupation

Hang your collar up inside
Hang your freedom higher
Listen to the buyer still
Listen to the Congress
Where we propagate confusion
Primitive and wild
Fire on the hemisphere below
Break:  (Fmaj7    Em    (x2))		G	D

Sugar cane and coffee cup
Copper steel and cattle
An annotated history the forest for the fire
Where we open up the floodgates
Freedom reigns supreme
Fire on the hemisphere below

Listen to me
