    Em ~ ~

 

    Em                                 D

1. I'm always ready for a war again,

                           Am                              C

    go down that road again, it's all the same.

    Em                                     D

    I'm always ready to take a life again,

                         Am                             C

    you know I'll ride again, it's all the same.

 

                    Em                                        D

    Tell me, who's gon' save me from myself,

                     C                 D

    when this life is all I know  ?

                   Em                                          D

    Tell me, who's gon' save me from this hell ?

                    C                D

    Without you, I'm all alone !

 

                 Em                                 D

Who gon' pray for me ? Take my pain for me ?

                Am                                    C

Save my soul for me ? 'Cause I'm alone, you see.

                 Em                              D

If I'm gon' die for you, if I'm gon' kill for you,

             Am                         C

then I'll spill this blood for you, hey.

 

 

2. (spoken : ) I fight the world, I fight you, I fight myself,

   I fight God, just tell me how many burdens left.

   I fight pain and hurricanes, today I wept,

   I'm tryna fight back tears, flood on my doorsteps.

 

   Life a living Hell, puddles of blood in the street.

   shooters on top of the building, government aiding relief.

   Earthquake, the body drop, the ground breaks,

    the poor one with smoke lungs and Scarface.

 

    Who need a hero? (hero)

    You need a hero, look in the mirror, there go he, hero !

    Who on the front lines at Ground Zero? (hero)

 

 

 

 

 

 

    My heart don't skip a beat, even when hard times bumps the needle,

    mass destruction and mass corruption.

    Their souls are sufferin' men,

    clutchin' on deaf ears again, rapture is coming.

    It's all prophecy and if I gotta be sacrificed for the greater good,

    then that's what it gotta be.

 

                  Em                                D

Who gon' pray for me ? Take my pain for me ?

                Am                                    C

Save my soul for me ? 'Cause I'm alone, you see.

                 Em                              D

If I'm gon' die for you, if I'm gon' kill for you,

             Am                         C

then I'll spill this blood for you, hey.

 

+  Em - D - Am - C (2x)              +  CHORUS

 

      Em                    D

+  Just in case my faith go,

                       Am                               C

    I live by my own law, I live by my own law, I live by my own.

      Em                    D

    Just in case my faith go,

                        Am                              C                              Em

    I live by my own law, I live by my own law, I live by my own.

 

+  Em ~ ~ .....
