Standard Tuning
No Capo
This song is played a half or whole step down by Dustin and Teppei in there acoustic live shows. But it can
be played at standard tuning as well. Just depends on how high or low you want to sing. 

[Intro]
Em G C Am x4

[Verse 1]
C
The tyranny of deterioration
                                            Em
It worries me that it's all just a waste of time
       G                 D
Taking one step forward, two steps back
      C   
Still I believe there's a thread through the thorns

And I believe that somewhere it's warm
    Em                  G                  D
And I believe that it's ever bright beyond this black

[Chorus]
        C             Am
So keep holding on to hope without assurance
C               Am        Em
Holding on to a memory of light
             C                 Am
But will the morning come? For all I know
            C                Am             Em
We’ll never see the sun, but together we’ll fight the long defeat

[Repeat Intro x4]
Em G C Am

[Verse 2]
C
The suffering that I see all around
                                          Em
It's enough to keep me crashing down till I
       G                  D
I lie wrecked and reeling from these falls
      C
Still I believe there's a word in the wire
                                      
And I believe there's a way through the fire
    Em                  G                D
And I believe there's a joy that blooms beyond these walls

[Chorus]
        C             Am
So keep holding on to hope without assurance
C               Am        Em
Holding on to a memory of light
             C                 Am
But will the morning come? For all I know
            C                Am             Em                D C    
We’ll never see the sun, but together we’ll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em    

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em
