D5 - xx0230
B5 - x24400 

   There is a man in this world, who has never smiled
   You may know his tragedy, the later years, by heart

E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|-  x2
   In the beginning, there was a mother, a father, and a child 
   A troubled little silent boy, whose life they worked to destroy

  Known to us from this day on by his father, Caleb..


Em.. Bm.. C... D5..
Em.. Bm.. C... D5..
Am.. B5.. C... D5..
Am.. B5.. C... D5..

    Em             B5          C             D5                  A
His mother came up with such a clever way to save the day with a little white lie
   Em                   B5                   C                 D5             A
He thinks he missed the point back then, but now he's grown to understand it, in a way
Em               Bm          C            D5     
Father said "I'm sorry" only once, as I remember
Em                 Bm                  C               D5
The words were not meant to hurt, only destroy you, my stupid son

    Am         B5     C           D5    
One person can make a difference, sometimes
     Am                     B5               C     D5
Just turn his head when the kid is still and has a weak neck

Smiled at his funeral, "happy you're dead."

Em        B5                  C          D5            A 
All his solutions, it seemed, were only problems in disguise
Em             B5            C          D5        A
Glueing on his drinkin' face, got ready to erase another day

Gm             Eb           Gm                 Eb                Bb      
Mother was yet confident, although they had it tight, taught her son
       Cm           D
At the end of every tunnel's a little light
            Gm              Eb              Gm             Eb
It wasn't a lie, it was her hope, that everything would be fine one day
Bb                 Cm               D                                
He can fulfill his every dream, I'm happy as long as he's not

Eb   F           G          D
..I hate it and fear can't face it
    Eb            F              G        D
The child is not right, he's my greatest shame
   Eb           F            G           D
Go out, create thunder, and stand right under
     F         G               A             
That old apple tree where dead snakes let him feed on those

Bbm         Gb        Ab               Db            Bbm    
Lost hopes, all those kind words could hurt him even more, now
Gb       Ab            Db       Db/C
Somehow, lost one more way back home

    Em              B5             C                         D5                 A
Out on the lake, he rows towards a monster he should've been running away from, years ago
    Em                B5           C                   D5          A
The past had made him blind to the way he'd turned the pain into a way of life

Gm           Eb                 Gm        Eb          
Followed his father, tucked him in, Caleb knows the trade
Bb       Cm            D                              Gm
He's the portrait of a man his mother drew to hate forever
          Eb              Gm              Eb
She was a beast, a deadly saint, wrong in many ways
Bb        Cm             D      
Wanted to keep up the charade, until the end waltzing together



Em                             C
Over the hills, under the sea, fighting the will, whole Universe
G              Am               B
Why does a man driving a hearse live in fear, Gift and a Curse
F#m                             D
Taking 'em out, taking 'em all, shooting the wall, over and out
A                   Bm              C#                          F#m
When nothing moves, all's well, a decision he can find a way to live with
...And dried up flowers are so beautiful
    A             Bm         C#
And it applies to all things living, and dead
                 Em Bm    C       D        Em   Bm  C  D  A
For that I serve my time... in my suite in Hell

Em.. B5.. C... D5..
Em.. B5.. C... D5..
Em.. B5.. C... D5..
Em.. B5.. C... D5..

    F#m        C#m     D        E    
Now I ring the bell to tell the world
    F#m             C#m           D          E                F#m
I'm ready when they bring out the soon to be dead against the wall
C#m  D      A   Bm    C#          F#m C#m D A Bm C#
Oooh.. This necessary evil has no heart

F#m                   D
Flowers and people he will now enlace
  A             Bm            C#
A price he must pay serving a cold ..whatever God    

                              ..D.. G  D/F#
Em.. C.. D.. G  D/F# | Em.. C.. D.. G  D/F#
Em.. C.. D.. G  D/F# | Em.. C.. D.. G  D/F#

F#m.. D.. E.. A  E/G# | F#m.. D.. E.. A  E/G# F#m
