Tabbed by: Adam K.

I can't guarantee that this is perfect, but I can guarantee that this is my first tab ever!

Great song; sorry I didn't post the lead, I'm not very good at hearing lead.
Figuring this out took me a while as it is. Any questions, you can email me.


Rise Against is the best band ever!
(Except for that crappy last album, "Appeal to Reason", RPM is where it's at!!!!)

PS. I revised the tab. I re-listened to it and figured out the right chords. 
Sorry about the confusion!

Chords used:
           (Fmaj)   (A#m/A5) (Cmaj)  (Dm)
e|-----------1-------1------- 0--------1---------------------------------------|
B|-----------1-------3------- 1--------3---------------------------------------|
G|-----------2-------3---3--- 0--------2---------------------------------------|
D|-----------3-------3---3--- 2--------0 --------------------------------------|
A|-----------3-------1---1--- 3--------- --------------------------------------|
E|-----------1-------1------- X--------- --------------------------------------|


Tuning: Standard (Low to High) EADGBe


VERSE:

(Just in case it's hard to read, it's all Fmaj, A#, C in the verse

Listen to the song for the rhythm. [Stay on Fmaj and A# for 1 measure, 2 measures for C]

End on Fmaj on "You're in ruins...")


Dm   A#                 Fmaj      C   Dm      A#        Fmaj      C

Do you know what's worth fighting for? When it's not worth dying for


Dm    A#        Fmaj    C     Dm      A#          F            C

Does it take your breath away? And you feel yourself suffocating


Dm      A#          Fmaj    C     Dm      A#         Fmaj        C

Does the pain weigh out the pride? And you look for a place to hide?


Dm     A#              C     Fmaj            Dm

Did someone break your heart inside? You're in ruins...

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I

VERSE:


Dm        A#         Fmaj     C   Dm       A#     Fmaj       C

When you're at the end of the road, and you lost all sense of control...


Dm      A#           Fmaj        C     Dm         A#               Fmaj         C

And your thoughts have taken their toll, when your mind breaks the spirit of your soul...


Dm  A#           Fmaj      C   Dm        A#      Fmaj       C

Your faith walks on broken glass, and the hangover doesn't pass...


Dm      A#        Fmaj    C            Dm

Nothing's ever built to last, you're in ruins...

Dm      A#        Fmaj        C     Dm  A#          Fmaj      C

When it's time to live and let die, and you can't get another try


Dm      A#          Fmaj         C                Dm

Something inside this heart has died, you're in ruins...
