[Verse]
G*      D         A7         Bm          F#m
I found that I find the things that you find
  G          A7        D
Important rather peculiar
 D      A7        Bm         F#m
The space in between between you and me
       G          A7             D
Has grown darker and deep and bigger

G*

[Verse]
D                  A7             Bm           F#m
Were it not for the knots that we tied long and taught
  G       A7              D
We might not be hanging around
 G*  D     A7         Bm      F#m
At opposite ends of a towering span
 G       A7          D
Over troubled waters below

[Chorus]
Bm             F#         G B        D
Down a raging river with a deadly undertow
  D        A7         Bm            F#m   
We circled the moat and you rocked the boat
  G         A7         D
Like a mighty leviathan of old

[Verse]
D                  A7             Bm           F#m
With cracks in our feet we beat foreign streets
G                A7               D
We got stranded, we canvassed for answers
G*  D        A7             Bm           F#m
But the prayers we prayed fell silent and straight
G           A7          D
No a savior won't save when commanded

[Verse]

G*

D                  A7  
So we marched through the dark
     Bm           F#m
With cast-iron hearts
      G         A7           D
And all the strength we could muster
G*  D        A7             Bm           F#m
With torches in hand we surveyed the land
G       A7             D
And stumble one after the other


[Chorus]
Bm                F#
Damned with blind ambition
  G  B        D
To a glass house miles below
G* D          A7       Bm        F#m
And the garden did grow some roots down in droves
 G        A7           D
And blocked out the sun while it shone

(Riff)
D A7 G A7 D x2

[Verse]
Bm 
You tied a rope 'round my finger
F#m            
You hoped for a dead ringer
   G   A                   D
Yeah you draped it over a towering oak
 G*   D      A7       Bm           F#m
But the rain came down with a furious sound
    G        A7              D
And rusted that belt until it broke


[Verse]
D          A7        Bm           F#m
So I clawed through the dirt, the soil of the Earth
G              A7              D
With bare hands that barely could shovel
G*   D            A7         Bm          F#m
And the canyon did flood with water and blood
 G           A7          D
From a thunderous storm up above

[Chorus]
Bm                      F#               G
Yes and God spoke clearly for the very first time in my life
G*  D             A7          Bm         F#m
And the sounds he made were glorious and great
 G             A7         D
It was a tidal wave of rhythm

D A7 G A7 D x4
