          G                D 
I felt no guilt till I was caught 
          Em 
And I was told that I was guilty, 
    C                         G          D 
And even then I wasn't really sure, yeah yeah. 
    C                G 
The thing I felt was guilt itself 
   D                      Em 
Or maybe it was something else, 
   C                               D 
Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all. 
         G           D 
I told a lie, I multiplied it 
       Em 
By the time I realized it 
    C                          G           D 
I'd given up everything I ever loved, yeah yeah. 
          C 
Cause the thing you left 
            G 
When you're looking back, 
       D                          Em 
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.

C                     G                          D 
And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too, 
                                 Em                             C 
They shouted, 'Court should be adjourned!' Because the jury are fools. 
                      G                        D 
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right Or his right from his wrong. 
C                              G 
And I will bite the hand that thieves, 
                           D 
I will not turn the other cheek, this is no threat 
        Em              C 
It is a promise I 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.

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

                                 Em                             C 
They shouted, 'Court should be adjourned!' Because the jury are fools.

Em                C 
And everyone will claim 
          G               D 
That they knew from the beginning. 
Em              C 
Exactly how it ends, 
     G                  D 
But they still just went on sinning. 
Em 
The sudden rush you feel 
     C                        G 
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, 
         G                     D 
But 'til then we will dream of winning. 

C          G 
I won't forget, 
               D 
The things you said, 
           Em                      C 
When I was down and I was tired of it. 
              G 
The words you spoke, 
                D* 
They brought me home. 
C                   G 
When it was time to fight, 
           D 
I chose a side, 
             Em                              C 
But I knew in my heart that something didn't feel right. 
                G 
So I stood my ground, 
                 D* 
And waited for a sign.
