 Em C A Bm
 Bb Cm

[Verse 1]
        
        Eb          Cm                  Ab
At the center of my heart there sits a throne
         Eb                  
That the rightful occupant's not always
Bb
free to call His own
  Eb                   Cm 
For how can I give the King
             Ab
His place of worth above all else
       Eb
When I spend my time striving
             Bb
To place the crown upon myself?

[Pre-Chorus]

D
(battle cry, to engage
D
for the war, set the stage)
D
And armies march and kings arise

Am 
(for the choice, the time has come
Am
mine or thy will be done?)
Am
And the pain reflects in holy eyes

G#m
(for the will to obey
G#m
for the night to the day)
G#m
And the seasons change and rulers die

B
(not of flesh, not of men
B
wage the war deep within)
B
On and on it rages undenied

[Chorus]

  Em                C
I take my crown and cast it down
Am
Castles burning
B
Castles burning
Em
Learn to grow
C
Grow to be
Am                D
A flesh and blood Theocracy
Em                   C
To take the loss and bear the bross
Am
Raise the kingdom
B
Raise the kingdom
A         Am
Burn away all I've been
   C         Am
To resurrect Theocracy within

[Solo]
Em C A Bm x2

D#

[Verse 2]

        Eb                    Cm
And the would-be rulers of my heart
                      Ab
That I place upon the throne
     Eb                                  Bb
Each lead the kingdom of my life to ruin
   Cm
To bring every thought into submission
   Ab
To tear the idols down
      Eb
Is to break the chains, to rearrange,
            Bb
To give the king his crown

[Pre-Chorus]

D
(battle cry, to engage
D
for the war, set the stage)
D
And armies march and kings arise

Am 
(for the choice, the time has come
Am
mine or thy will be done?)
Am
And the pain reflects in holy eyes

G#m
(for the will to obey
G#m
for the night to the day)
G#m
And the seasons change and rulers die

B
(not of flesh, not of men
B
wage the war deep within)
B
On and on it rages undenied

[Chorus]

  Em                C
I take my crown and cast it down
Am
Castles burning
B
Castles burning
Em
Learn to grow
C
Grow to be
Am                D
A flesh and blood Theocracy
Em                   C
To take the loss and bear the bross
Am
Raise the kingdom
B
Raise the kingdom
A         Am
Burn away all I've been

[Bridge]

C       Am                Em
Father, use me to be your hands down here
  C         Am                 Em
A mirror to reflect your glory into hurting eyes
    C      Am                 Em
And let me see the world with vision clear
        C                       C        Em
And not through selfishness and lies
C           Am               Em   
For if I am consumed with my own cares
     C               Am
What right have I to speak the words
Em          C
Thy Kingdom Come?
    Am                          Em
And if I am consumed with my own will,
              C                       Gm
What right to pray Thy Will Be Done?
       Eb             Gm               
As all round me I see bleeding souls
Eb                         Cm      Gm   
Please give me strength to never pass them idly by
Eb                            Gm
And as the angry storm clouds start to roll
              D#           Cm      Gm    Bm    
May they see comfort in my eyes
Gm                                    D
For just as you are full of mercy and love
    Gm                             D
The same to others you have called me to be
    Gm                       Bm         G
And by the covenant of grace above and below
                  Em     Bm      
Within our souls: Theocracy


[Chorus]

  Em                C
I take my crown and cast it down
Am
Castles burning
B
Castles burning
Em
Learn to grow
C
Grow to be
Am                D
A flesh and blood Theocracy
Em                   C
To take the loss and bear the bross
Am
Raise the kingdom
B
Raise the kingdom
A         Am
Burn away all I've been
   C          Am
To resurrect Theocracy within
