Streetlight Manifesto - The Hands That Thieve



Tabbed by: Null / Miamasa
Email: oopsmybaddd@yahoo.com

My first song transcribed, so there may be problems.
 - Gb's might be G/F#'s or something
 - Not too sure about the B at the end of the verses

Tell me any corrections that need to be made!





Intro

D Dsus2 

Verse 1

            G                Gb
I felt no guilt till I was caught
           Em
And I was told that I was guilty,
      C                        G          D
And even then I wasn't really sure, yeah yeah.
C                       G
The thing I felt was guilt itself
D                       Em
Or maybe it was something else,
C                                          D
Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all.
G                   Gb
I told a lie, I multiplied it
        Em
By the time I realized it
       C                         G          D
I'd given up everything I ever loved, yeah yeah.
C
Cause the thing you left
G
When you're looking back,
D                                          Em
Is the pressure the feel that you have to act
          C
Yeah everything is clearer when 
          B
You're looking at the past, oh no.

Chorus

C                      G
And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too,
D                                  Em
They shouted, "Court should be adjourned!" Because the jury are fools.
C                      G                         D
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right Or his right from his wrong.
C                                 G
And we will bite the hand that thieves, 
                             D
We will not turn the other cheek, this is no threat
           Em
It is a promise we will keep.
C                       G
So what's the point pretending when we sit behind 
       D
the curtain and there's nothing much to see, oh yeah.

Verse 2: same chords as 1

            G                Gb
I felt no pain till I was found,
           Em
And I was told that I was bleeding.
      C                        G          D
And even then I knew I wasn't done, yeah yeah.
C
Cause the wounds I get
G
They will just collect,
D                      Em
Insuring that I won't forget.
C
Reminders of the battles
D
That I've lost and that I've won
            G                Gb
And I will fight until I have died
           Em
Or until all my enemies are allies
      C                                    G        D
And even then I will sleep with an open eye, yeah yeah.
C                                 G
Cause the night is long and our hooves are strong
D                      Em
And I know the road we travel on 
           C
It always seems so dark
                 B
Because we've almost reached the dawn, Oh no.

Chorus

C                      G
And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too,
D                                  Em
They shouted, "Court should be adjourned!" Because the jury are fools.
C                      G                         D
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right Or his right from his wrong.
C                                 G
And we will bite the hand that thieves, 
                             D

Em                  C
And everyone will claim,
            G               D
That they knew from the beginning.
Em                      C
That what they did was wrong,
       G                   D
They still just went on sinning.
Em
The sudden rush you feel
        C                      G
When realizing everything you know
                               D
Will fade away, it haunts you deep,

But you won't want to let it go.
Em                      C
Someday we'll lose the war,
          G                       D
But till then we will dream of winning.

C          G
I won't forget,
                D
The things you said,
             Em                    Em (Might be A C later)
When I was down and I was tired of it.
                G
The words you spoke,
                 D *
They brought me hope.
C                     G
When it was time to fight,
             D
We chose a side,
              Em                              Em
But everyone knew that something didn't feel right.
                   G
So we stood our ground,
                   D *
And waited for a sign.

              Em                              Em

                   G
So we stood our ground,

Rest of the song continues on this pattern basically.


D
You said don't look back!
(No, no, no, no...)
Don't look back!
C               G
(We won't look back, 
                D
We won't look down,
                Em
We've come too far,
                         C
We're too high off the ground.
                  G 
The wheels have turned,
               D
The lessons learned.)

You said don't look back!
Don't look back!
