verse 1 
A                        E        Bm 
A young boy wakes in the morning, excited for 
            E    A 
a brand new day. His little mind full of 
E                F#m                   E 
simple thoughts, like going outside to play. 
D                            Bm      D 
But things arenít quite that simple, they do 
                    E     A 
it like itís no big deal. Quietly watching 
E                   F#m               E 
from the car, while they go inside to steal. 
D                         F#m    D 
Still learning right from wrong, he looks to 
                   E      A 
them with love and trust. As they lead him 
       E            F#m 
down a broken path, that ends in innocence 
E E7 
lost. 

D A E Life goes on and time heals all. Lessons F#m D learned are them bricks in a wall. Build it A E tall with truth and honesty and never give in F#m D to their hypocrisy. Thereís no escape from A E the ghosts of your past, just do your best to F#m D make everyday last. You get what you give A Bm thatís what they always say. The good folks E E7 A win and the bad fade away.
verse 2 A E Bm A teenager wakes in the morning, looking just E A E to find his way. School is out and there is F#m E no doubt, thereís gonna be some hell to pay. D Bm D Cuz he does just as they taught him, a E A tribute to their broken name. Walkiní along E F#m that same old path full of heartache, crime E D and pain. And sometimes he looks in the F#m D E mirror and wonders where it ever ends. A E F#m Getting out, his reflection shouts, itís the E E7 only way to make amends.

verse 3 A E Bm A grown man wakes in the morning and notices E A a few more greys. Twenty-Five years have E F#m E passed on by, since he finally walked away. D Bm D The sins they laid upon him, theyíre a weight E A heíll always bare. But blessings sometimes E F#m E come with cost and a message you must share. D F#m Those little eyes watch him now, with the D E A same loving trust he once gave. And daddy E leads them down a brighter path, but his F#m E memories still remain. Bm E E7 The memories still remain... E E7 Bridge D E You used my mother and you stole my brother. A F#m D All youíve ever done is ruin lives. So many E A suffered by your hands and I wonder how you Bm D keep up with your disguise. Iím stained from E A that day, I canít forget the way, I saw you F#m D hurt that girl til she died. Thereís so E much to say, but thank God I got away and F#m C#m youíre slowly fading from my mind.
