Verse 1: 

Em                          C      D      Em                 C     D 
In the gloom the gathering storm abates in the ships gimlet eyes await
Em                          C      D      Em                     C     D 
The call to arms to hammer at the gates to blow them wide throw evil to its fate
Bm                             G      A       B                   G     A 
All summer long the drills to build the machine to turn men from flesh n blood to steel
Bm                          G      A       B                    G     A 
From paper soldiers to bodies on the beach from summer sands to Armageddon's reach

Em                       C      D      Em                 C     D    Em
Overlord your master not your god the enemy coast dawning Grey with scud
Em                          C      D      Em                      C     D     
These wretched souls pukin shakin fear to take a bullet for those who sent them here
Bm                       G      A       B                G     A 
The world's alight the cliffs erupt in flame no escape remorseless shrapnel rains
Bm                            G    A       B                   G     A 
Drowning men no chance for a warrior's fate a choking death enter hell's gate


Pre-Chorus 1: 

Em         C        G           D
Sliding we go, only fear on our side
      Em            C           G           D
To the edge of the wire and we rush with the tide
       Em       C              G          D
Oh the water is red with the blood of the dead
    Em         C            G        D
But I'm still alive pray to god I survive


Chorus 1: 

C    Em          D       Em           C     Em      D
How long on this longest day til we finally make it through?
C    Em          D       Em           C     Em      D
How long on this longest day til we finally make it through?


Verse 2: 

Em                       C      D      Em                 C     D 
The rising dead faces bloated torn they are relieved the living wait their turn
Em                          C    D      Em                     C     D 
Your numbers up the bullets got your name you still go on to hell and back again
Bm                        G      A       B                   G     A 
Valhalla waits Valkyries rise and fall the warrior tombs lie open for us all
Bm                          G      A       B              G     A 
A ghostly hand reaches through the veil blood and sand we will prevail

Pre-Chorus 2: 

Em         C        G           D
Sliding we go, only fear on our side
      Em            C           G           D
To the edge of the wire and we rush with the tide
       Em       C              G          D
Oh the water is red with the blood of the dead
    Em         C            G        D
But I'm still alive pray to god I survive


Chorus 2: 

C    Em          D       Em           C     Em      D
How long on this longest day til we finally make it through?
C    Em          D       Em           C     Em      D
How long on this longest day til we finally make it through?

C    Em          D       Em           C     Em      D
How long on this longest day til we finally make it through?
C    Em          D       Em           C     Em      D
How long on this longest day til we finally make it through?
