Em
Are we so alone,

So distant,
   D
So forgotten,
       Cadd9           D/F#
As we think ourselves to be?
               Em
These are our lifes
                       D
But did they ever even matter?
       Cadd9          D/F#
Are we worth remembering?


Em                          Cadd9                            G
These machines feed on the tears of broken lifes and dying dreams
                     D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)
Em                             Cadd9
We’re throwing wrenches in the gears
                                G
Our lifes will not be lived in vain
                     D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)

Em
When this is all said and done
               Cadd9
We spent this life on the run
              G        D/F#
Judged by the company we keep
              Em
Our language, buried inside
                 Cadd9
These lungs that keep us alive
   G            D/F#
We breathe so selfishly


                    Em
Promises we plan to break
                      D
Are made in whispered voices
           Cadd9             D/F#
Cause our despair knows many names
        Em 
We make mistakes
                      D        Cadd9                      D/F#
But we apologize with roses we never stop to smell on the way


Em                          Cadd9                            G
These machines feed on the tears of broken lifes and dying dreams
                     D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)
Em                             Cadd9
We’re throwing wrenches in the gears
                                G
Our lifes will not be lived in vain
                     D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)


Em
When this is all said and done
               Cadd9
We spent this life on the run
              G        D/F#
Judged by the company we keep
              Em
Our language, buried inside
                 Cadd9
These lungs that keep us alive
   G            D/F#
We breathe so selfishly

Em      G        D/F#   Em
We fell from the sky todaaay
Em      G    D/F#       Em
We melt into balls of claay
Em      G         D/F# Em
We sell ourselves everyday
Em            Cadd9  G         D/F#
Don’t tell me how to live this way


Em                          Cadd9                G
Pushed so far to the edge We teeter just on the brink
                    D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)
Em                        Cadd9
You can lead me to the bloodbath
                       G
But you can’t make me drink
                    D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)


 
Em                          Cadd9                             G
As These machines feed on the tears of broken lifes and dying dreams
                     D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)
Em                             Cadd9
We’re throwing wrenches in the gears
                                G
Our lifes will not be lived in vain
                     D
(Oh, Ohhhhhhhh, Oh, Ohhhhhhhhhh)
                             Em
my life will not be lived in vain
