Gm7           C
Ever remembers changing there mind from
Dm7
The paint on a sign?
Dm7
Is there anyone who

Ever breaking rank at all

For something someone yelled real loud one time

Dm7
Belief is a beautiful armor

But makes for the heaviest sword
C
Like punching under water
Dm7
You never can hit who you're trying for
Dm7
Some need the exhibition
Gm7
And some have to know they tried
C
It's the chemical weapon

For the war that's raging on inside

    Bb
And no ones going quietly

Dm7                         Gm7
We're never gonna win the world
                  C
We're never gonna stop the war
Dm7               
We're never gonna beat this

If belief is what we're fighting for

[Bridge]
Dm7 Gm7 C Dm7

If belief is what we're fighting for X2

Belief can
          Gm7 C
Belief can
Dm7           Gm7              Gm7                C
What puts the folded flag inside his mother's hand

Belief can

Dm7 Gm7 Gm7 C

Cheers. I know this is 100% right. The song becomes easier to play if you know 
the order it goes in. For reference the song goes.
