    GD
    I felt no guilt till I was caught 
    Em
    And I was told that I was guilty, 
    CGD
    And even then I wasn't really sure, yeah yeah. 
    CG
    The thing I felt was guilt itself 
    DEm
    Or maybe it was something else, 
    CD
    Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all. 
    GD
    I told a lie, I multiplied it 
    Em
    By the time I realized it 
    CGD
    I'd given up everything I ever loved, yeah yeah. 
    C
    Cause the thing you left 
    G
    When you're looking back, 
    DEm
    Is the pressure the feel that you have to act 
    C
    Yeah everything is clearer when 
    D
    You're looking at the past, oh no.

    Em Am C D 
    CGD
    And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too, 
    EmC
    They shouted, "Court should be adjourned!" Because the jury are fools. 
    GD
    And the judge can't decipher his left from his right Or his right from his wrong. 
    CG
    And we will bite the hand that thieves, 
    D
    We will not turn the other cheek, this is no threat 
    EmC
    It is a promise we will keep. 
    G
    So what's the point pretending when we've seen behind 
    D
    the curtain and there's nothing much to see, oh yeah.

    GD
    I felt no pain till I was down, 
    Em
    And I was told that I was bleeding. 
    CGD
    And even then I knew I wasn't done, yeah yeah. 
    C
    'Cause the wounds I get 
    G
    They will just collect, 
    DEm
    Insuring that I won't forget. 
    C
    Reminders of the battles 
    D
    That I've lost and that I've won 
    GD
    And I will fight 'til I have died 
    Em
    Or all my enemies are allies 
    CGD
    And even then I will sleep with an open eye, yeah yeah. 
    CG
    'Cause the night is long and our foes are strong 
    DEm
    But I know the road we travel on 
    C
    It only seems so dark 
    D
    Because we've almost reached the dawn, oh no.

    G D C D 
    EmC
    And everyone will claim 
    GD
    That they knew from the beginning. 
    EmC
    That what they did was wrong, 
    GD
    They still just went on sinning. 
    Em
    The sudden rush you feel 
    CG
    When realizing everything you know 
    D
    Will fade away, it haunts you deep, 
    Em
    But you won't want to let it go. 
    C
    Someday we'll lose the war, 
    GD
    But 'til then we will dream of winning. 
    CG
    I won't forget, 
    D
    The things you said, 
    EmC
    When I was down and I was tired of it. 
    G
    The words you spoke, 
    D*
    They brought me home.
    CG
    When it was time to fight, 
    D
    We chose a side, 
    EmC
    But everyone knew that something didn't feel right. 
    G
    So we stood our ground, 
    D*
    And waited for a sign.
