Comments and/or corrections are welcome!

C#m    A  B x2

        C#m    A  B
Welcome home 
      C#m    A  B
While away 
          C#m               A     B
They have tampered with the locks 
         E             F#m
And your things they rearranged
    C#m     A  B
“We propose 
         C#m    A  B
a better way.” 
          C#m            A       B
Said they note they left behind 
         E          F#m
In their wake of disarray 

            A
You fell in place
           B
Don’t fall asleep 
                C#m
They’ll find us here 
         B           A
I know a place to disappear 
              B
As a voice proclaimed

        C#m        E        A
What we are is the sum of a thousand lies 
        C#m            E          A
What we know is almost nothing at all 
       C#m         E             A
But we are what we are until the day we die 
         B                                A
Or until we don’t have the strength to go on 
     B                                A
Til' we don't have the strength to go on

C#m    A  B x2

       C#m    
Let us cry 
       C#m    
Let us be 
       C#m         
Let us open up our hearts 
        E          F#m
Without fear of anything
      C#m
Faith alone 
          C#m
Is all we need 
      C#m
To traverse this burning bridge 
      E                F#m
Now before it gets too late 

                A
You said. “it’s fine”
              B
But the heart reveals 
            C#m
What smiles betray 
             B             A
Your sad sad eyes gave you away 
          B
Don’t you know

        C#m        E        A
What we are is the sum of a thousand lies 
        C#m            E          A
What we know is almost nothing at all 
       C#m         E             A
But we are what we are until the day we die 
         B                                A
Or until we don’t have the strength to go on 
     B                                A
Til' we don't have the strength to go on

B              C#m           A
 Our shoulders bear an awful weight 
But still we trudge on just the same 
B             C#m              A
 These colors run then leave a stain 
They blacken our once honest name 
B               C#m         A
 But how can we argue, tell me 
Over the fury and the fire 
B                     C#m           A
How many times can we tell you that we 
                               B   
Are not like you, we see right through 
                                 A
Your poor disguise that fails to fool 
         B                      A
The wary eye that is trained on you

        C#m        E        A                   _
What we are is the sum of a thousand lies        |
        C#m            E          A              |
What we know is almost nothing at all            |
       C#m         E             A               |
But we are what we are until the day we die      | 
         B                                A      |
Or until we don’t have the strength to go on     |
     B                                A          |
Til' we don't have the strength to go on        _| x2
                                                 
      B
Yeah, we don't have the strength to go on
