Hammer on the second note on the intro and verse chords.


Intro
A - E - A
E - C#m - A


Verse 1:
E                             C#m
Peel back our ribs again and stand inside of our chest.
A                                                 E    
We just wanna' love you, We just wanna' love you, Yeah


Verse 2: 
E                             C#m
Peel back the veil of time, And let us see You with our naked eyes
A                                                 E    
We just wanna' love you, We just wanna' love you, Yeah


Pre-Chorus:
A                                   E
Skeleton bones stand at the sound of eternity on the lips of the found
A                                                   E
And gravestones roll to the rhythm of the sound of You
A                                   E
Skeleton bones stand at the sound of eternity on the lips of the found
      A                                                   B - A2 - F#m - E
So separate those doors and let the son of resurrection in


Chorus:
E           B               A2     F#m               E 
Oh let us adore the Son of Glory dressed in love
E             B                A2          F#m       E        A2 - F#m
Open up your gates before him, Crown Him, stand Him up


Verse 3 x2
E                                          C#m
We want your blood to flow inside our body, We want your wind inside our lungs
A                                                 E    
We just wanna' love you, We just wanna' love you, Yeah

Pre-Chorus
Chorus x2


For an easier way to play this, keep the capo 2 on and transpose the song
down 2 half steps so the E is now a D, then play everything in basic
acoustic chords in that position. 


Here are the lead tabs. The whole song is built around this.

Intro
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--2-4-6------2-4-6------2-4-6-----------2----------------------------|
A|--------4----------2----------4----4-2--------4-2--------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------0------------------|
You can play this in multiple positions, but this is the easiest for my 
fingers, and all the notes are accurate. Use your wammy bar to get those
drops at the end of each riff.


Pre Chorus
e|-------------------------------|
B|--5-7-9------5-7-9-------------|
G|--------6----------------------|
D|-------------------9-----------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|


Instrumental before Chorus (you can let the B string ring during this)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1----|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

The second time through, James leaves out the 4th fret and just plays 8 
of the 6th fret... but play it however you want.
