This one's the last track off of Boneclouds, fun and easy to play.  Like most of 
Mason's songs, he usually plays it a half step down but I think it sounds fine in 
standard tuning as well.
Verse 1
G              Em
Jesus, are you real?
C               G
Did we make you up?
G                 Em
Is salvation what you want
C             G
Or is faith enough?

G                     Em
Do you know where I'm bound?
C                 G
Do you know who I am?
G                     Em
Are you just a word I use
C                  G
When I don't understand?

G                Em           C
Standing like a statue in the sea
                  G             D
In a little truck stop in Tennessee
                Em               C
And bombs are crashing down in waves
      G           D
On a giant TV screen

           Em        
And I am struck I cannot
C                G
move to make it stop
            D               Em             C
What can I do?  People are dying in their beds
            G                   D
While this flag flies over our heads

Verse 2
G                Em      C             G
Jesus, are you stronger than a loaded gun?
G             Em          C                   G
I'm beginning to believe you're not the only one
G                 Em              C                G
Strong enough to show your love, strong enough to give
G                Em                C                G
Strong enough to go through hell, strong enough to live

G                   Em          C
And all night long I sat with you
         G               D
In a darkened hospital room
            Em                C
And nurses checked in by the hour
            G                   D
I was made aware of a higher power

               Em             C
And how this fragile life we live
                G                D
Is not ours to keep but ours to give
             Em              C
What in the world am I gonna do
        G                     D
If anything should happen to you?

Chorus
D            Bm
All I do is doubt you, God
G            D
All I do is love you, God
F            Em
All I do is question you
Em               A7
What else can I do?

D                    Bm
This world was never solid ground
G                   D
The past is coming back around
F              Em
All I do is search for you
Em              A7
What else can I do?

D                 Bm
And when I say I search for you
G        Em           D
I mean I search for peace
D                    Bm
I search for hope, I search for love
G           Em     D
And one day for release

Verse 3
G          Em    C                G
Jesus, my life does not feel the same
G                    Em       C               G
New things happen everyday, things I can't explain
G               Em            C             G
But I am not a man of faith, I'm a man of truth
G                   Em           C                 G
But is this feeling in my heart, is this feeling proof?

G         Em               C
When you do not know, you know
              G                D
And when you know, you do not know
              Em                C
And when you think you do, you die
             G                  D
And when you do not think, you grow

D      Em                C
Are we left here in the dark
           G                 D
Or are we left here in the light?
            Em                C
It seems to me that both are true
               G                  D
And it's up to us to know what's right

Chorus
D            Bm
All I do is doubt you, God
G            D
All I do is love you, God
F            Em
All I do is question you
Em               A7
What else can I do?

D                    Bm
This world was never solid ground
G                   D
Religion cannot help me now
F              Em
All I do is search for you
Em              A7
What else can I do?

D                 Bm
And when I say I search for you
G        Em           D
I mean I search for peace
D                    Bm
I search for hope, I search for love
G           Em     D
And one day for release

D                       Bm
God give me strength to accept the things
G             Em    D
That I just cannot know
D                Bm
And even when I lose control
G           Em     D
I will not let you go
