This is from Demon Hunter's second album, "Summer of Darkness." I was
trying to learn it on this site when I realized the chords in the chorus
were actually really easy, so I tried making the rest of it into an
acoustic song...and this is what I came up with. I thought it would be nice
for some people to be able to hear the same lyrics presented differently.
I'll be posting my own recording of it on my profile if you want to
actually hear how I play and sing it. I think my guitar's tuned down a half
step, as well, just for reference.

Here are some funky chords I use in the first and second choruses and the
tag...all other chords are either normal chords or power chords exactly as
written.

   D6var  A2var
E|---0------0---|
B|---0------0---|
G|---4------6---|
D|---0------7---|
A|---5------0---|
E|---0------0---|


Verse:
   Em                     C              Em           D
Behind the eyes of my compassion lies a suffering soul
    Em                    C               Em           D
And in my blood a bitter darkness slowly taking its toll
Em                           C                           Em
 I feel the death of our connection and the fading of light
                              C                      D
Between the shards of sudden panic from choking on my life

   Em               C                      Em             D
I see the scars of your addiction and the feeling you hide
    Em                  C                       Em        D
A blackened heart from all the hatred you will never rewind
Em                             C                              Em
 Within the depths of your depression hear you pleading for help
                                C                    D
You're just a shell of vacant ruin, a portrait of myself

Prechorus 1:
G          D       Em  C    G       D        A2
I can't breathe alone;     You can guide me home

Chorus 1:
E5        D6var                D5
 I am the face of your affliction
             A2var                             E5
Feeding new life through the cracks in your skull

Verse:
   Em                C                     Em           D
Beneath the skin of your aggression is a thickening fear
    Em                        C             Em             D
A swelling plague from every devastating voice that you hear
Em                             C                              Em
 You feel the throes of contradiction in the world that you left
                       C                          D
Another day in your delusion, the never-ending death

Prechorus 2:
G          D       Em  C    G       D        Em
I can't breathe alone;     You can guide me home
G          D    Em   C   G        D       A2
I can feel You here;     You can draw me near

Chorus 2:
E5        D6var                D5
 I am the face of your affliction
             A2var                             E5
Feeding new life through the cracks in your skull
         D6var                D5
I am the pain of your conviction
             A2var                            E5
Stabbing you right through the back of your soul

E5  F5 Eb5     E5 F5  Eb5   (play 2x, a little throwback to the original song's main riff)

Bridge:
E5      B5    D5      C5 D5 
This is life, this is lo-ove

Chorus 3:
Em         G                    D
 I am the face of your affliction
             A2                                Em
Feeding new life through the cracks in your skull
          G                     D
I am the face of your affliiction
              A2                              Em
Stabbing you right through the back of your soul
          G                    D
I am the pain of your conviction
              A2                              E
Stabbing you right through the back of your soul

G          D    Em   C   G        D       A2
I can feel You here;     You can draw me near

E5        D6var                D5
 I am the pain of your conviction
              A2var                            E5
Stabbing you right through the back of your soul

I meant for those Eb5s after Chorus 2 to be D5s. My bad.
