Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I am sure this song is originally on an alternate tuning like Drop D-flat (I've 
seen Smile Empty Soul live and I'm pretty sure of this), but my version sounds the 
same along side the CD or youtube video of them playing. Enjoy!

Intro F#m/E/B

F#m     E              B
Silhouettes above the cradle hold me down
F#m         E             B        
They won't let me go the wrong way
F#m        E                 B       
My mother taught me all the fables, told me how
F#m     E            B       
In the end all the sinners have to pay 
But...

D             E            F#m       C#
I don't wanna live like my mother
              D   E    F#m      C#
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
    D             E            F#m      C#
And i don't wanna live like my father
              D    E   F#m       C#
I don't wanna give up before i die

F#m           E                  B
He worked so hard his bones are breaking
                  F#m        E              B     
He wore them down but long ago he lost the feeling
F#m        E                  B    
His good intentions leave me shaking, show me how
F#m       E           B 
I don't ever want to end up like he did
And...

D             E            F#m       C#
I don't wanna live like my mother
              D   E    F#m      C#
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
    D             E            F#m      C#
And i don't wanna live like my father
              D    E   F#m       C#
I don't wanna give up before i die

F#m          E
When i have kids
B                      F#m       E                B
I won't put any chains on their wrists, i won't
F#m             E    B
I'll tell them this there's nothing in this world 
     F#m        E         B
That you can't be if you want it enough
And...

Hold your B chord you just played for dramatic fade out here, then hit the 4th 
fret of the b string and bend that note for the sound just before the chorus hits again.

B|---4b-------------------

D             E            F#m       C#
I don't wanna live like my mother
              D   E    F#m      C#
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
    D             E            F#m      C#
And i don't wanna live like my father
              D    E   F#m       C#
I don't wanna give up before i die

D             E            F#m       C#
I don't wanna live like my mother
              D   E    F#m      C#
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
    D             E            F#m      C#
And i don't wanna live like my father
              D    E   F#m       C#
I don't wanna give up before i die
