Verse 1:
Em           C      Em        
What does it matter, a dream of love
              C       
Or a dream of lies
      D                    G         
We're all gonna be the same place 
        B7
When we die
Em                      C
Your spirit don't leave knowing
Em                C
Your face or your name
        D
And the wind through your bones
   G       B7
Is all that remains
Em                  C   D  Em   
And we're all gonna be... 
(4 times)
Em (sung only)
Just dirt in the ground


Verse 2:
Em               C
The quill from a buzzard
Em                   C
The blood writes the word
          D            G
I want to know am I the sky 
       B7
or the bird
       Em      C
'Cause hell is boiling over
Em            C
And heaven is full
      D
We're chained to the world
    G           B7
And we all gotta pull
Em                  C  D  Em
And we're all gonna be...
(4 times)
Em
...Just dirt in the ground


Verse 3:
        Em         C
Now the killer was smiling
     Em             C 
With nerves made of stone
D     
He climbed the stairs
        G      B7
And the gallows groaned
        Em                   C 
And the people's hearts were pounding
          Em                   C
They were throbbing, they were red
      D
As he swung out over the crowd
            G      B7    
I heard the hangman said
Em              C   D  Em    
We're all gonna be...
(4 times)
Em 
Just dirt in the ground


Verse 4:
    Em        C
Now Cain slew Gel
   Em                C
He killed him with a stone
    D
The sky cracked open
        G      B7 
And the thunder groaned
Em               C
Along a river of flesh
Em                  C
Can these dry bones live?
      D
Ask a king or a beggar
        G             B7  
And the answer they'll give
Em                 C  D  Em
Is we're all gonna be...
(4 times)
Em
We're all gonna be just
