Lyrics:Jeff Salane                 (Remember, #=Guitar 1 and ?=Guitar 2)

Intro:
(#Riff C x2--clean)

Then (distortion for rest of song),
(#Riff A1 x 4) with (?Riff B1 x 3 and ?Riff B1 alt.)


Cuts that wound don't always heal  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2)
Chains that bind aren't always steel  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2, alt.1)
I can't get past my own windows  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2, alt.2)
I can't get past...  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2, alt.3)

The innocence that's a thousand words  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3)
The innocent led a thousand wars  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3, alt.1)
And there is no mastermind  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3, alt.2)
There is only a core...  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3, alt.3)

Chorus:
It only takes a raindrop to dent Wet Cement 	(both guitars play Riff C
Embedded pavement, I'll get past             	 twice over these four lines)
It only takes a raindrop to dent Wet Cement
Embedded pavement, I get past -- I'll get by...

(#Riff A1 x 2, with ?Riff B1 and then ?Riff B1 alt.)

Devote myself to a cause unjust  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2)
Innocent were the words I read  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2, alt.1)
There's no reason to symbolize  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2, alt.2)
It's against my wish and I've earned this lead  (#Riff A1) w/(?Riff B2,alt.4)

And my world is trapped inside  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3)
And my world is wrapped inside  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3,alt.1)
And maybe I'm just tired  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3,alt.2)
Of living in your tradition  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3,alt.3)

(Chorus)

Break:
(#Riff A3) with (?Riff B4)
(#Riff A3,alt.1) with (?Riff B4)
(#Riff A3) with (?Riff B4)
(#Riff A3,alt.2) with (?Riff B4,alt.1)

Devote myself to a cause unjust  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2)
Innocent were the words I read  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2,alt.1)
There's no reason to symbolize  (#Riff A1) with (?Riff B2,alt.2)
It's against my wish and I've earned my lead  (#Riff A1) w/(?Riff B2,alt.4)

And my world is trapped inside  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3,alt.4)
And my world is black and white  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3,alt.4)
And maybe I'm just tired  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3,alt.4)
Of fucking up your tradition  (#Riff A2) with (?Riff B3,alt.5)

(Shortened Chorus)

Hope you guys enjoy this -- it's a helluva song!
