Hey 	why can't you listen
As	love screams everywhere


Guitar1 plays Riff 1  x 4
Guitar2 plays natural harmonics w/ muting


					B5
					You crucify all honesty
			
					No signs you see do you believe
					       D5
					And all you words just twist and turn
				
					Reviving just to crash and burn
       					B5
					You're fighting till the bitter end
			   					     D5
					If only your heart could open up

					And listen
Guitar1 plays Riff1 x 4
