[Intro] 
(0:00 - 0:12)
Bm (x6) -- G (x2) -- D (x8)

[Verse] 
(0:12 - 1:00)
        Bm                                                          G             D
Cause I know that time has numbered my days, and Ill go along with everything you say
        Bm                                                                  G        D
But Ill ride home laughing, look at me now, the walls of my town, they come crumbling down
         Bm                                                          G              D
And my ears hear the call of my unborn sons, and I know their choices color all Ive done
         Bm                                                          G               D
But Ill explain it all to the watchmans son, I aint ever lived a year better spent in love

[Chorus] 
(1:00 - 1:18)
          Bm     A      D       G       Bm       A        D        G        A
Cause I know my weakness know my voice, so now believe in grace and choice
      Bm     A        D        G         Bm      A       D      G        A
And I know perhaps my heart is farce, but Ill be born without a mask

[Post-Chorus] 
(1:19 - 1:25)
D (x8)

[Verse] 
(1:25 - 2:12)
         Bm                                                          G        D
Like the city that nurtured my greed and my pride, I stretch my arms into the sky
      Bm                                                                  G        D
I cry Babel! Babel! Look at me now, then the walls of my town, they come crumbling down
         Bm                                                                 G            D
You ask where will we stand in the winds that will howl, as all we see will slip into the cloud
         Bm                                                                              
                            G
So come down from your mountain and stand where weve been, you know our breath is weak
       G    D
and our body thin

[Bridge] 
(2:12 - 2:43)
D/F#         G              D
   Press my nose up to the glass around your heart
D/F#          G             D
   I shouldve known I was weaker from the start
D/F#                  G                Bm      A       G
    Youll build your walls and I will play my bloody part
     G     D/F# D/E D                    Bm    G         D
To tear, tear them down,  well Im gonna tear, tear them down

[Chorus] 
(2:44 - 3:01)
        Bm       A      D        G          Bm        A       D       G       A
Cause I know my weakness know my voice, and Ill believe in grace and choice
       Bm        A     D         G        Bm     A       D       G        A
And I know perhaps my heart is farce, but Ill be born without a mask

[Outro] 
(3:02 - 3:12)
D (x16)

This is the best version on here. All of those capoing are not right because you need the root notes in the bridge.

Yeah, this is the only version that sounded correct to me, even if it's a little funky to play
