Standard tuning Capo version (4th fret) Intro chords: Am - G - F - F - C - G Verse: Am F G C The rains move eastward in waves of succession Am F E Drawing lines of grey across the sky Am F G C With history just as close as a hand on the shoulder Am F E In hunger and impatience we cry Am F G C The battle against corruption rages in each corner Am F E There must be something better, something pure Am F G C And the call it is answered from the caves to the cities Am F E Come the dealers of Salvation on Earth Violin part: Am - F - G - C Am - F - E Am - F - G - C Am - F - E Verse: Am F G C We've seen the restless children at the head of the columns Am F E Come to purify the future with the arrogance of youth Am F G C Nothing is as cruel as the righteousness of innocents Am F E With automatic weapons and a gospel of the truth Chorus: E D C B Revolution for ever, succession of the seasons C G F E Within the blood of Nature, all raised to rot and die F E Am - F - G - C etc. This purity, purity is a lie Violin part Verse: Am F G C Now immaculate conception in sterilised laboratories Am F E How the vanity goes on Am F G C Or in the message of the preacher with his morals and obsessions Am F E The wars that we wage upon ourselves G F Purity is a virtue, purity is an angel Am E Purity is for madmen to make fools of us all Am F G C So forgive yourself my friend, all this will soon be over Am F E What happened here tonight is nothing at all Chorus: E D C B Revolution for ever, succession of the seasons C G F E Within the blood of Nature, all raised to rot and die F E Am - F - G - C etc. This purity, purity is a lie Violin part Am F G C I will always see Brendan at that broken down piano Am F E His fingers thick and red, shaking on the keys Am F G C Battered by the years of alcohol and working Am F E Still playing with the faith that never leaves Am F G C So sit us down, buy us a drink, tell us a good story Am F E Sing us a song we know to be true Am F G C I don't give a damn that I never will be worthy Am F E Am... etc Fear is the only enemy that I still know Violin outro I couldn't find these anywhere so I worked them out. 'Purity is a virtue...' may not be 100% but it can work well this way. Great song, enjoy.
