The Toh Kay version is the same but with a capo on 3 (Thanks, lightavion52!)


F Gsus2

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

Dm Dm F F
Dm Dm F F

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

F F F F
F F F F

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

Dm Dm F F
Dm Dm F F

F                     F                          F
And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too,
                                 Dm                             F
They shouted, "Court should be adjourned!" Because the jury are fools.
                      F                        F

                       F

    F

Dm                F
And everyone will claim
          F               F
That they knew from the beginning.
Dm                     F
That what they did was wrong,
     F                  F
They still just went on sinning.
Dm
The sudden rush you feel
     F                        F
When realizing everything you know
                              F
Will fade away, it haunts you deep,
                             Dm
But you won't want to let it go.
                       F
Someday we'll lose the war,
         F                     F
But 'til then we will dream of winning.

F          F
I won't forget,
               F
The things you said,
           Dm                      F
When I was down and I was tired of it.
              F
The words you spoke,
                F*
They brought me home.
F                   F
When it was time to fight,
           F
We chose a side,
             Dm                              F
But everyone knew that something didn't feel right.
                F
So we stood our ground,
                 F*
And waited for a sign.

F                   F F F Dm
You said don't look baaaaaaaack!
           F F F Dm
Don't look baaaaaaack!


    F          F
(We won't look back,
              F
We won't look down,
               Dm
We've come too far,
                       F
We're too high off the ground.
                F
The wheels have turned,
            F
The lessons learned.)
