Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

        G       Am      C       Em      D       Amadd9

G       Am      C
Em      D       C

G              Am                C
Pages filled cover the floor all covered up with ink
      Em           D          C
Words written over coffee document my struggling
      G                 Am              C
Those mornings spent sitting alone, mourning alone in grief
    Em              D              C
For all I killed in search of honesty

G       Am      C
Em      D       C
G       Am      C
Em      D       C

       G            Am               C
See, I used to be a mustard seed shouting at the mountain
  Em              D                   C
I used to hang my head when it stayed far from the ocean
  G                 Am               C
I used to claim its failure from the depths of depression
        Em               D              C
Well, I cried to god but god did not respond

           G              Am             C
And like a barrel-chested strongman I suspended disbelief
          Em           D                   C
I held it high over my head though all the weight was staggering
    G                Am              C
But legs buckled and muscles burned, in came gravity
             Em              D            C
I dropped it all, faced what I'd been avoiding
                   Em              D                 C
Yeah, I dropped it all, faced what I'd been avoid...
What I'd been avoiding

        Am      C
Em      D       C
G       Am      C
Em      D       C

    G            Am                    C
For many years I walked that road, for many years I tried
   Em          D              C
So earnestly I sought the relationship advertised
       G                  Am                   C
But my empty hands and my empty heart could no longer be denied
           Em         D            C
Oh yeah, I quit. I forfeit eternal life

And I did not take inheritance when I left to go away
Yeah, I did what was commanded when that rich man asked to be saved
I left my friends, my family behind all for heaven's sake
I am no prodigal 
And this is no mistake
Oh, this is no mistake
Well, this is no mistake
Well, I am no mistake

Am      G       Am   Amadd9   C 
C (Strumming pattern changes at one point)

       G              Am                  C
So I'm sorry mom, I'm sorry dad, I really want you to be proud
        Em           D                      C
I don't want to disappoint you all, I don't want to let you down
    G                  Am                     C
But I have stopped searching for truth hiding behind heaven's cloud
              Em             D             C
Don't save my place, of this race I do bow out
              Em                 D                C
Don't save my place, oh, of this race I do bow...
        G       Am      C
Well, I bow out
            Em  D       C
Yeah, I bow out
