[Intro]
Em Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em Am B7

[Verse 1]
Em Am
When does it get quiet? Time was
B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
supposed to extinguish the desire
Am B7
But the embers won’t snuff out
Em Am
Haunted by your smiles,
B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
the mask keeps getting heavier
Am B7
One step forward, two steps back

[Verse 2]
Am
There’s a noose ’round my neck and the
B7
further I get
G Gmaj7/F# Em
It’s harder and harder to breathe,
Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
can I find a way to cut the rope?
Am
I’ve been waiting for dawn,
B7
but the light is all gone
G Gmaj7/F# Em
Don’t know if I’m already blind,
Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
can I leave it all behind?
Em Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em Am B7

[Verse 3]
Em
What’s it really for if
Am G Gmaj7/F# Em
it’s not yours and it’s not mine?
Am B7 Em
This victory is not what I hoped for
Am B7
How was I to know that everything would
G Gmaj7/F# Em
end up like this?
Am B7
Survival of the fittest of sorts

[Chorus]
Am
So I’ve become the bringer of death,
B7
a lover of life
G Gmaj7/F# Em
The one who guards from the dark of the night,
Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
I’ll be the hammer of war
Am B7
Justice and mercy don’t live side by side,
G Gmaj7/F# Em
so in retribution, I abide
Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
Am B7 G
Gmaj7/F# Em Am B7
I’ll tip the scales to justice’s end,
but can it make amends?

[Verse 4]
Em Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
Kill or be killed, what a way to live and die
Am B7 Em
I just can’t see this cycle ever ending
Am B7 G Gmaj7/F# Em
How can I correct the damage done when I can’t feel
Am B7
The consequences of my recourse?
