Intro:

C Am C Am 

G F   G F E Am

Verse:
Am                     G     E
Skies black, cold and vacant now
Dm           Am
I sat on the hillside
             C
The stars up above me
                 G 
Like pinholes in velvet
                  Am
I listened to the song
       E               Am
That I hoped I'd never hear

Am        G    E
And off behind me
Dm             Am
Guns snap like insects
                   C
We're fighting for causes
                G
We don't really fathom
                 Am
But we'll charge ahead
         E              Am
Bloodied hands feed the flames

Bridge


Am         G   C    E
Their guns all rain down

Am G F C

C                             Am  Em F
Say your prayers, fall and run
G                          Am G F
This is do or die this time
C                                  Am G
Raise your fist, give 'em hell boys
F
Let's make them wish they'd never lived


Am                                G    E
My eyes locked with a boy on the other side
Dm                       Am
Hands dropped, he stood defenseless
              C
But he wasn't frightened
             G
His face was accepting
               Am
But I couldn't pull
           Em               Am
I couldn't pull, I couldn't pull

   Am G     C   E  Am
And I could see it clear
   Am   G   C   E  Am
To fall was not my fear
   Am   G   C    E  
To make one fall was

        C                 F               C
And the chaos returned, I backed into the trees
        Am          Em                F           G
Left my guns on the ground, wiped the mud from my knees
      C                        F            C
And I knew in my heart that my old life was gone
                Am       C          G
That in walking away, my name was undone
G
So I might as well run

Am G Am G
Am G Am C G
Am G Am G
Am G Am C 

C     G   Am    C   Am      G  Am  C   Am  Dm  G    Em   F    C
Parts and bones and strings of secrets cut the ties that bind me
C G     Am    C  Am  G  Am    C  Am Dm    G    Em  F C
I might dream myself as king, but I ain't made for ruling


C 
                    Am G
Just live another day, 

and I can find another way (3x)
