[in 4/4, Bb]


  Bbm Bbm/Ab       Bbm/Gb Bbm/F
  I   only want to say

  Ebm      Ebm/Db  Ebm/C  Ebm/Bb
  If there is a    way

  Ab        Absus  Ab  Dbsus Db
  Take this cup    a - way   from me

      F       F+   F  Bbmsus Bbm           Gb
  For I don't want to taste  its poison -- feel it burn me

  Bbm/F           C7                 F    F+ F7   F
  I have changed, I'm not as sure as when we started

  Bbm    Bbm/Ab   Bbm/Gb Bbm/F
  Then I was    inspired

  Ebm     Ebm/Db     Ebm/C Ebm/Bb
  Now I'm sad    and tired

  Ab      Absus  Ab Dbsus Db       F   F+  F
  Listen, sure - ly I've  exceeded expectations

  Bbmsus Bbm                Gb
  Tried  for three years -- seems like thirty

  Bbm/F            F                   Bbm
  Could you ask as much from any other man?


  Bbm Ab Gb F
  But if I  die

  Bbm          Ab                 Gb                F
  See the saga through and do the things you ask of me

  Bbm               Ab               Gb               F
  Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree

  Bbm                              Eb7
  I'd wanna know I'd wanna know my God   (x2)

  Bbm                            Eb7
  I'd wanna see I'd wanna see my God     (x2)

  Bbm Ab Gb     F
  Why I  should die

  Bbm             Ab             Gb       F
  Would I be more noticed than I ever was before?

  Bbm                   Ab            Gb         F
  Would the things I've said and done matter any more?

  Bbm                                  Eb7
  I'd have to know I'd have to know my Lord   (x2)

  Bbm                                Eb7
  I'd have to see I'd have to see my Lord     (x2)

[key change to C]

  Cm                        F7
  If I die what would be my reward?          (x2)

  Cm                                   F
  I'd have to know I'd have to know my Lord  (x2)

  Cm  Bb     Ab G     Cm  Bb     Ab G
  Why should I  die?  Why should I  die?

  Cm              Bb               Ab               G
  Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain?

  Cm             Bb             Ab          G
  Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain

  Cm                Bb              Ab            G
  Show me there's a reason for your wanting me to die

         Cm              Bb                Ab            G
  You're far too keen on where and how and not so hot on why

[repeat Cm - Bb - Ab - G progression]

  Alright I'll die!  Just watch me die!

  See how I die!  See how I die!

[Instrumental orchestra break in 5/8 -- Cm Bbsus Ab G]
[Break last round at Ab - Tacet - return to initial tempo in Cm]

  Cm     Cm/Bb   Cm/Ab   Cm/G  Fm      Fm/Eb     Fm/D  Fm/C
  Then I was   inspired,       now I'm sad   and tired

  Bb    Bbsus      Ebsus     Eb          G          G+  G
  After all,  I've tried for three years seems like ninety

  Cm            Ab               Cm/G
  Why then am I scared to finish what I started

  D7       D7-9       G
  What you started -- I didn't start it

  Cm       Cm/Bb    Cm/Ab Cm/G      Fm       Fm/Eb  Fm/Eb  Fm/D  Fm7/C
  God, thy will  is hard        but you hold every  card

  Bb     Bbsus      Ebsus  Eb
  I will drink your cup of poison

  G       G+ G    Cm                  Ab
  Nail me to your cross and break me, bleed me, beat me

  Cm/G               G7    G+   G7 G7sus  G7 Ab    Fm  G7sus  Cm
  Kill me -- take me now before I  change my mind
