Chords

Intro: F G Am x 2

Verse 1:

F                G     Am
One year closer to my death
F                        G     Am
I haven't found what I'm looking for yet
F                           G     Am
It ain't big blue eyes and long blonde hair
F                                G     Am
It ain't a million dollars or a secret prayer

Verse 2 (chords as before):

Ya see, my corpse was born inside of me
Sometimes I carry him, sometimes he carries me
And we ride this desert foreign land
When my prayers don't work I use my hands

Bridging section: F G Am

Verse 3 :
There's a monster in my dreams
With ruby eyes she calls to me
And the demons circle round her throne
beside the princes she has turned to stone

Verse 4:

She can take your brain but not your blood
She can bury your bones but not your love
Still, I keep practicing my aim
Persius is my name

Bridge:

F        G      Am
Time is not the enemy
F     G      Am
I am, I think
        F                      G               Am
But if I can't find the rhythm, if I can't find a cure
                F                        G        Am
By God I'm gonna break these walls and shake these floors

Verse 5:

If I come I come to raise the dead
Even with all these demons in my head
And if you've come to raise them too
If you wait for me, I'll wait for you

Verse 6:

My grandpa asked me to plant a tree
So I burned down the forrest while he was asleep
He awoke with not a tree in sight,
Said "now maybe son you can plant one right

Verse 7:

Don't be afraid of the blood and gore
Don't be afraid of the devil on the threshing floor
'Cause there's a power in your bones that outconsumes
War and Sex and God and You"

Bridge:

Time is not the enemy
I am, I think
But if I can't find the rhythm
If I can't find a cure
By God I'm gonna break these walls and shake these floors

Verse 8:

If I come I come to raise the dead
Even with all these demons in my head
And if you've come to raise them too
If you wait for me I'll wait for you

Verse 9:

Guts of gold and wings of steel
A loaded gun and a pocket mirror
And if you make it out alive
You better hold that bloody head up high

Bridging section: C D Em (the arpeggio is done on the bar chords)*

Verse 10:

My dad was born in '58
His dad was born in '29
His dad was born in 1895
His name was Persius- the same as mine

The verse chords are played to the end.
