My life
charred remains of a flame that’s burned out
my lips move but they won’t make a sound
I stand motionless, eyes to the ground

F#sus2
back for more
                       Esus2
with reopened scars I remain
                               Dsus2
battered savagely, knees start to shake
                                 C#
I just stand there, I take it, I wait


[Chorus]
                     Dsus2    Esus2
I’m just waiting for time to erase
        F#sus2 Asus2 Dsus2
and the world  to    change
                  Esus2        F#sus2
until then I will strive for nothing more
                      Dsus2    Esus2
I’ll just wait for my heart to break
     F#sus2 Asus2 Dsus2       Esus2
and arise   from  ash, reborn,
  F#sus2
reborn

look at me
cut my eye and allow me to see
what my life has become on my knees
I hear the screams, I watch myself bleed
but I can’t feel a thing

        F#sus2
what am I
                          Esus2
but a victim unwilling to rise
                                Dsus2
wretched shell of a man and his pride
                                     C#
why stop living, I’m just waiting to die


[Chorus]
                     Dsus2    Esus2
I’m just waiting for time to erase
        F#sus2 Asus2 Dsus2
and the world  to    change
                  Esus2        F#sus2
until then I will strive for nothing more
                      Dsus2    Esus2
I’ll just wait for my heart to break
     F#sus2 Asus2 Dsus2       Esus2
and arise   from  ash, reborn,
  F#sus2
reborn

.. back to strumming then

Asus2 *          Dsus2
my life, it’s so familiar
    Asus2 *                Dsus2
why lie when everything’s the same
           B              D **
but who am I, and what am I 
        Gsus2 F#sus2  Esus2
waiting foooooooooor anyway

* experiment with adding the 9th fret on the 3rd string (D) 779777
** play it this time as power chord on the 12th fret


[Chorus]
                     Dsus2    Esus2
I’m just waiting for time to erase
        F#sus2 Asus2 Dsus2
and the world  to    change
                  Esus2        F#sus2
until then I will strive for nothing more
                      Dsus2    Esus2
I’ll just wait for my heart to break
     F#sus2 Asus2 Dsus2       Esus2
and arise   from  ash, reborn,
  F#sus2
reborn
        Esus2                C#
and I will die waiting to be reborn
  F#sus2 @
reborn
