Verse 1:
Dm       Bb                F        C
  Do you know what's worth fighting for
Dm          Bb        F     C
  When it's not worth dying for?
Dm        Bb       F       C
  Does it take you breath away
        Bb                 C
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Dm         Bb          F       C
  Does the pain weight out the pride?
Dm        Bb         F        C
  And you look for a place to hide?
Dm         Bb             F       C
  Does someone break your heart inside?
          Bb   C
You're in ruins


Chorus 1:
F    C/E Dm
One, 21  guns
C             Bb
Lay down your arms
F           C
Give up the fight
F    C/E Dm
One, 21  guns
C
Throw up your 
Bb   F         C
arms into the sky
        Bb F C
You and I


Guitar 2: after "give up the fight" and "into the sky"

Verse 2:
Dm            Bb     F          C
  When you're at the end of the road
Dm        Bb       F           C
  And you lost all sense of control
Dm         Bb            F           C
  And your thoughts have taken their toll
          Bb                             C
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Dm     Bb             F      C
  Your faith walks on broken glass
Dm        Bb       F       C
  And the hangover doesn't pass
Dm          Bb   F        C
  Nothing's ever built to last
          Bb   C
You're in ruins


(Repeat Chorus 1)


Bridge:
Dm        Bb     F            C
  Did you try to live on your own
Dm         Bb              F         A
  When you burned down the house and home?
Dm         Bb       F            A
  Did you stand too close to the fire?
        Bb                 C
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

Verse 3:
Dm          Bb      F            C
  When it's time to live and let die
Dm        Bb         F      C
  And you can't get another try
Dm          Bb          F         C
  Something inside this heart has died
          Bb(hold)
You're in ruins
