Pay the Man  Foster the People

[Intro] 
Not important but just in case you want to know it. Just before they start singing.
Listen the song for tempo and strumming, it's easy.

F#m (let it ring...)
What you mean, what you mean?
What you mean, man, what you mean?
F#m...
What you mean, yeah, what you see?
What you see, yeah, oh yeah
(No guitar)
Well I need a little something to pull my head off
Need a little something to pull my head off,
(yeah need a little something...
[Verse 1] 
...Because I've been running)
[F#m]from the truth, will never lose
Lies come from loose teeth, tied to the noose
Climbing up my o[F#m]wn tree hoping it can hold
All the things I've seen but I've chosen to ignore
Mmm[Dmaj7]m... Well, I said, well I believe I've been well fed, yeah
(But the wolf's not dead)
[Cborus]

Guitar 2
[F#m7]Say what you love, it's alright
[E7]Don't be afraid to find the light
[Dmaj7]Embrace the day, like night
[Bm7]We hear the fire
We all go wild ag[E]ain
And you have the[C#m7] name
Of someone I [Dmaj7]love (You said)
[F#m7]Just keep it true, Lift up your name
[E7]Seasons change, You know it'll never [Dmaj7]be the same,
We'll see the [Bm7]sun again,
Before it fade[E]s,
I just wanna [C#m7]say that I love [Dmaj7]you
[Pre-verse] 
[F#m7]Pay the man, pay the man
Got to pay the man, Run as fast as you can
[Verse 2] 
[F#m7]Call out to God, praise to the Most High
Call out for help cause I'm playing with fire
[F#m7]Call out to mountains till my voice goes faint
Echoes through time that goes back with new strength
[Interlude] 
[Dmaj7]And when it's raining, 2e're sailing Oh yeah, we're sailing,
[Dmaj7]We're sailing (I'm off the leash, I go to war for peace)
[Verse 3] 
[F#m7]Must've been touching everything that I can
I've got blood on my hands, guess I'm going deaf with
[F#m7]the cry of this sin please forgive me I don't understand
We all believe we've been well fed, yeah
The deaf man heard what the mute man said
Then they all followed where the blind man led
[Cborus]

Pay the man, pay the man you got to)
[Dmaj7]Pay the man, [C#m7]pay the man you got to
[A]Pay the man, [G]pay the man
[G]I was laughing real hard until my[A] teeth fell out

[A]Was laughing real hard but my t[G]eeth fell out
[G]Need a little something, yeah
[A]Need a little something
[Solo] 
Listen to it for tempo. It keeps going until the end of the song
I turned it down one octave so it can be played easily on a guitar. Also,
although these are the correct notes, I believe they are almost sliding all the notes.
