Dm Bb Gm Dm
 
[Verse 1]
 F                          Dm
You said you'd show me the ropes
                      Bb
As you tied me to the tracks
                  Dm
Didn't help to struggle
                  F
Lies were good as facts
 
[Verse 2]
For years and years
          Bb     Gm            Bb    Dm
You swore up and down you were over it
                       Gm       Bb
Your eyes had seen the kingdom
                G    A             Dm
A born again misfit, born again misfit
 
[Pre-Hook]
   Bb
Unravelling up time these truths
F
Tracing all the writer's roots
Bb
Red rope binds and fast embrace
Gm                  A
Some knots don't untie
Gm                  A
Some knots do not untie
 
[Hook]
Dm                               Bb
Pray for forgiveness, cry for reprieve
              Gm
Because these ties that bind
       Am             Bb
Don't come undone as fast as you'd believe
           Dm                               Bb
But for a new heart; it breaks but does not bleed
   Gm               Am
The red ropes are a viper's nest
Bb       A     Dm
You can never leave
 
[Verse 3]
F                       Dm
Heaven hollowed out its veins
                  Bb
And fixed a hollow man
                       Dm
You found a cure for a pain
                 Bb
You swore you'd never hurt again
 
[Verse 4]
    F                   Dm
I'll always be a prized fighter
                    Bb
Even up against the ropes
                      Dm
You will always be a liar
                     Bb
Punchdrunk on busted hopes
 
[Hook]
Dm                               Bb
Pray for forgiveness, cry for reprieve
              Gm
Because these ties that bind
       Am             Bb
Don't come undone as fast as you'd believe
           Dm                               Bb
But for a new heart; it breaks but does not bleed
   Gm               Am
The red ropes are a viper's nest
Bb       A     Dm
You can never leave
 
Dm Bb Gm Dm
till fade
