Song progression:

[Intro] x1

[Riff 1] x1 /w lyrics:

All that we can do is just survive.

[Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:

All that we can do to help ourselves is stay alive.

[Am]  [Riff 3] x2

[Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics:
                                                      G~
Ragged lines of ragged grey. Skeletons they shuffle away

                                 G~                   [Riff 3] x1
Shouting guards and smoking guns   will cut down the unlucky ones.

(strum)    A5                             Em
        I clutch the wire fence until my fingers bleed.

[Riff 4] x1 /w lyrics:

A wound that will not heal. A heart that cannot feel.

(strum)  Am                      Em
       Hoping that the horror will recede.

[Riff 4] x1 /w lyrics:

Hoping that tomorrow we'll all be freed.

[Riff 3] x2

[Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics:
                                       G~
Sickness to insanity, prayer to profanity.

                                 G~                        [Riff 3] x1
Days and weeks and months go by.   Don't feel the hunger too weak to cry.

(strum)    A5                           Em
        I hear the sound of gunfire at the prison gate.

[Riff 4] x1 /w lyrics:

Are the liberators here? Do I hope or do I fear?

(strum)         Am                      Em
        For my father and my brother it's too late,

     F                      F    F    [Riff 1] x1
But I must help my mother stand up straight.

Repeat this part TWICE:

[Riff 1] x1 then [Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:

Are we the last ones left alive? Are we the only human beings to survive?

Then go into the [Guitar Solo]:

        Let the harmonics ring; notes with a '!' represent vibrato
instead of a held note; also use echo and a harmonizer set to a perfect
5th.
