Still Waiting

Em    C
So am I still waiting
G              D
For this world to stop hating
Em           C                   } chorus
Can’t find a good reason
G               D
Can’t find hope to believe in

2x    Em    C    G    D

Em          G
Drop dead a bullet to my head
Em             G
Your words are like a gun in hand
Em               G
You can’t change the state of the nation
Em           D
We just need some motivation
Em           G
Since I have seen no conviction
Em            G
Just lies and more contradiction
Em         G
So tell me what would you say
Em          D
I’d say its up, to me

-chorus-

Em    C    G    D

Em            G
Ignorance and Understanding
Em                      G
We’re the first ones to jump in line
Em              G
Out of step for what we believe in
Em             D
But whos left? To start the pleading
Em           G
How far will we take this
Em               G
It’s not hard to see through the thickness
Em         G
So tell me what would you say
Em          D
I’d say its up, to me

-chorus-

Em   C     G       D
This can’t last forever
Em   C     G           D
Time won’t make things better
Em     G  D Em
I feel so alone
Em    G    D Em
Can’t help myself
Em  G  D   Em
And no one knows
Em      G    D
If this is worthless
Em        C        G        D
Tell me:                         so

2x    Em    C    G    D

Em        C
What have we done
G                   D
We’re in a war that can’t be won
Em         C
This can’t be real
G                 D
I don’t know what to feel

-2x chorus-

Speak Of The Devil

G
Trying to find a way
Em
Getting better everyday
C                     D
And I got you now I’m not alone
G                      Em
All I need in this life is one
C          D
One thing to believe in

G                Em
I’ve seen many a face
C
From young and too old
D
I’ve stolen their faith and I have broken their souls
G                 Em                          C
Was here before Christ had forgave you your sins
D
And paid your price and sealed your fate within

Em              C
Days have come to an end
G                         D
Today’s the day that we meet again
Em                    C         G           D          C
The self-inflicted inebriation guilt never lies
Em                         C                             G
I’ve been waiting for the chance to reunite this sick romance
D
Poison never hurt so good
Em
So nice of you to speak of me
C
Your closest friend and enemy
G               D
And holy savior of masochists
C         G
Well it’s the dead end slave
C             G
From the altar to the grave
C        G       D
It’s the last days of our lives
G
In faith amen

G                   Em
Time, it’s been so long
C
And now there’s nothing to say
D
I’m trying so hard to find the words to say
G                Em                        C
I’m tired of being, now I’m something I’m not
D
I can’t believe and I never thought

Em                      C
Days would come to an end
G                    D
Well maybe someday we’ll meet again
Em                C
If ever that day never comes
G              D
It would be too soon
G
My love

Em                         C                             G
I’ve been waiting for the chance to nullify this sick romance
D
Pull the chord to detonate
Em
So sick of you don’t speak of me
C
The reverend saint of misery
G               D
And holy savior of masochist

C         G
Well it’s the dead end slave
C             G
From the altar to the grave
C        G       D
It’s the last days of our lives

Pieces

Dm                 Bb
I tried to be perfect
F                     C
But nothing was worth it
I don’t believe it makes me real
I thought it’d be easy
But no one believes me
I meant all the things I said

Bb
If you believe it’s in my soul
F       C
I’d say all the words that I know
Bb
Just to see if it would show
F         C                     Bb
That I’m trying to let you know
That I’m better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don’t know how it got so bad
Sometimes it’s so crazy
That nothing can save me
But it’s the only thing that I have

If you believe it’s in my soul
I’d say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I’m trying to let you know  Bb…
That I’m better off on my own

BRIDGE F Bb F Bb Dm C Bb F Dm C Bb F A

On my own

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn’t worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It’s hard to believe me
It never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along

If you believe it’s in my soul
I’d say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I’m trying to let you know
That I’m better off on my own

Disillusion seems so clear now

March Of The Dogs

B         F#              G#m
I don’t believe in the politics,
E                B
Of chosen fools and hypocrites,
F#                 G#m
Who walk a line that tread so fine,
E                 B
Is death or glory had in mind?

B                F#m
And here we go again,

it’s mass delusion,
G#m
No one knows,
E                  B
Who’ll lead this revolution now,

As tension grows,

The way to a conclusion,

It’s too late there’s no time (it’s too late there’s no time)

All for none, none for one, two, three, four

March of the dogs,

To a beat of disillusion

Sworn under god,

Breeding panic and confusion,

The white flag is down,

G#m         E
Send in the clowns,
B               F#       G#m      E
The carnival of sins is now going to begin,

B Bbm G#m F# E

B      F#              G#m
It may be I’m a pessimist,
E                B
But I say we need an exorcist,
F#                 G#m
The root of all evil standing tall,
E                 B
Under god and above us all,

B                F#m
And here we go again,

it’s mass delusion,

No one knows,

Who’ll lead this revolution now,

And now the president’s dead,

Because they blew off his head,

No more neck to be red,

Yes to heaven he fled,

Was it something he said,

Because of who’s in his bed,

By who will we be led?

From whose hand will we be fed?

All the lies by the lying liars who said

We’ll be fine,
