Intro:

Em C Em C
------------------------------

      Em
I was climbing now I'm falling,
            C
I've been pushed off by a man,
        Em                           C
who has made it to the top and now defends it 'cos he can,
         Am                            Em
and I have found a breach in his front line
      Em 
I was open now I'm hidden,
          C
from the danger of his words,
         Em                          C
I have found a good position and i'll play for what he's worth
      Am                         Em
and he will find nowhere left to hide
------------------------------
Chorus:

        C                       
I will lift her love and I'll break your spirit,
        Em
I will dig a hole and I'll throw you in it,
      C                                             Am
only time will tell if we're all just cynics on the run.
                                 Em
if we're all just cynics come undone.
------------------------------
      Em 
I was losing now we're drawing
                C
and I'm not afraid to draw my blood
Em                               C
I'm not backing down so I'd surrender cause you should
              Am                                   Em
and face the truth you raise the flag I'll tear it down.
    Em                     
You may have won the battle
          C
but i'll take the fight to you
          Em
and your flag is on the ground
           C                                 Am
and your bones they rattle through, as they break you,
                        Em
your fear has now come true
------------------------------
Chorus/ Bridge:

        C                       
I will lift her love and I'll break your spirit,
        Em
I will dig a hole and I'll throw you in it,
      C                                             Am
only time will tell if we're all just cynics on the run.
                                 C
if we're all just cynics come undone
                          Am
All just waiting for the gun,
                    C
we are tied to the truth,
                         Am
the tie that binds me to you
                   C
I'm acting on my words,
                      Am
with all that I have heard,
                 C
with honesty in mind,

you'll find
      Em                                  C
that I'm not the liar see the truth in my eyes!
   Em                                    C
No I'm not the liar see the truth in my eyes!
------------------------------
Chorus:

        C                       
I will lift her love and I'll break your spirit,
        Em
I will dig a hole and I'll throw you in it,
      C                                             Am
only time will tell if we're all just cynics on the run.
                                 Em
if we're all just cynics come undone.


(repeat chorus one more time, end on Em!)

To me it sounds like the chord changes are far less frequent. More like this:

Em
I was climbing now I'm falling,

I've been pushed off by a man,

who has made it to the top and now defends it 'cos he can,
C Em
and I have found a breach in his front line

I was open now I'm hidden,

from the danger of his words,

I have found a good position and i'll play for what he's worth
C Em
and he will find nowhere left to hide
------------------------------
Chorus:

C
I will lift her love and I'll break your spirit,
Em
I will dig a hole and I'll throw you in it,
C Am
only time will tell if we're all just cynics on the run.
Em
if we're all just cynics come undone.

No Guitar yet but now thinking about it;) I just love the tune, the songs lyrics & what it means to me:) I heard it at the right time and it made me feel good inside- that's all I ever want from music... Say something to change my perspective.

And then this song reminded me again that I'm never alone - especially, in my darkest moments of despair. Music speaks to me to stay strong even when so many faces of adversity patronize me with cold gazes of disapproval.

God knows the truth & I'm blessed to have a life with God on my side. No one else needs to care about me or even help me. You were looking out for me & listening when I thought no one was.

I was treated like an outcast when I tried to tell them. No one would ever believe me but you did b/c you saw it all.
