INTRO

Bsus2

VERSE 1

With all the grain of Babylon
To cultivate, To make us strong
And hidden here behind the walls
Are shoulders wide and timber on
         Asus2
Till the war came
         Bsus2
Till the war came

VERSE 2

A terrible autonomy
Is grafted onto you and me
A trust put in the governments
Who told their lies as heaven sent
         Asus2
Till the war came
         Bsus2
Till the war came

CHORUS

        G               Asus2                 Bsus2
And the war came with a curse and a caterwaul
        G                     Asus2                 Bsus2
And the war came with all the poise of a cannonball
            G                 A     Em             G
And they're picking out our eyes by cold and candlelight
         G
When the war came
    Asus           Bssu2
The war came hard

VERSE 3

We made our oaths to Avalon
We'd not betray the soul lain on 
The acres of hysteracy
To our own pangs of starvation
When the war came
When the war came

CHORUS

        G               Asus2                 Bsus2
And the war came with a curse and a caterwaul
        G                     Asus2                 Bsus2
And the war came with all the poise of a cannonball
            G                 A     Em             G
And they're picking out our eyes by cold and candlelight
         G
When the war came
    Asus           Bssu2
The war came hard
