[Intro]
Bm  A  G  A

[Verse 1]
              Bm
Watching them come and go
                     A
The templars and the Saracens
                      G
They're traveling the Holy Land
        A
Opening telegrams 
                  Bm
Torture comes and torture goes
                       A
Knights who'd give you anything
                       G
They bear the cross of Coeur de Lion
                  A              F#
Salvation for the mirror-blind 


[Prechorus]
           G m           F                C       Cm
But if you pray all your sins are hooked upon the sky
Am           Em               Cm  
Pray and the heathen lie will    disappear

[Chorus]
G                             A7add4
Prayers they hide the saddest view
               Bb6                         A7add4
Believing the strangest things, loving the alien
          G                            A7add4
And your prayers they break the sky in two
                Bb6                        A7add4        
Believing the strangest things, loving the alien

[Instrumental, with Riff 1]
Bm  A  G  A


[Verse 2]
              Bm               
Thinking of a different time
            A
Palestine a modern problem
                G
Bounty and your wealth in land
            A               F#
Terror in a best laid plan, oh 
              Bm
Watching them come and go
                  A
Tomorrows and the yesterdays
                   G
Christians and the unbelievers
               A                F#
Hanging by the cross and nail

 [Prechorus]
            Gm           F               C        Cm7
But if you pray all your sins are hooked upon the sky
Am           Em               Cm  
Pray and the heathen lie will    disappear

[Outro Chorus]
G                             A7add4
Prayers they hide the saddest view
               Bb6                         A7add4
Believing the strangest things, loving the alien
          G                            A7add4
And your prayers they break the sky in two
                Bb6                        A7add4        
Believing the strangest things, loving the alien
       G                      A7add4
You'll pray till the break of dawn 
                Bb6                        A7add4        
Believing the strangest things, loving the alien
             G                       A7add4
And you'll believe you're loving the alien
                Bb6                        A7add4        
Believing the strangest things, loving the alien
