Streetlight Manifesto - The Hands That Thieve

This version is mostly just a tweaking of the other tab up on here. I'm not sure, but it 
sounds like
the Toh Kay version is the same but a half-step up (so a capo on 1)


D Dsus2

          G                D
I felt no guilt till I was caught
          Em
And I was told that I was guilty,
    C                         G          D
And even then I wasn't really sure, yeah yeah.
    C                G
The thing I felt was guilt itself
   D                      Em
Or maybe it was something else,
   C                               D
Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all.
         G           D
I told a lie, I multiplied it
       Em
By the time I realized it
    C                          G           D
I'd given up everything I ever loved, yeah yeah.
          C
Cause the thing you left
            G
When you're looking back,
       D                          Em
Is the pressure the feel that you have to act
     C
Yeah everything is clearer when
       D
You're looking at the past, oh no.

C                     G                          D
And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too,
                                 Em                             C
They shouted, "Court should be adjourned!" Because the jury are fools.
                      G                        D
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right Or his right from his wrong.
C                              G
And we will bite the hand that thieves,
                           D
We will not turn the other cheek, this is no threat
        Em              C
It is a promise we will keep.
                       G
So what's the point pretending when we sit behind
    D
the curtain and there's nothing much to see, oh yeah.

          G               D
I felt no pain till I was down,
          Em
And I was told that I was bleeding.
    C                         G          D
And even then I knew I wasn't done, yeah yeah.
           C
'Cause the wounds I get
          G
They will just collect,
  D             Em
Insuring that I won't forget.
  C
Reminders of the battles
          D
That I've lost and that I've won
           G                 D
And I will fight 'til I have died
                      Em
Or all my enemies are allies
    C                                   G         D
And even then I will sleep with an open eye, yeah yeah.
          C                     G
Cause the night is long and our hooves are strong
      D                Em
And I know the road we travel on
   C
It always seems so dark
              D
Because we've almost reached the dawn, Oh no.

Em                C
And everyone will claim,
          G               D
That they knew from the beginning.
Em                     C
That what they did was wrong,
     G                  D
They still just went on sinning.
Em
The sudden rush you feel
     C                        G
When realizing everything you know
                              D
Will fade away, it haunts you deep,

But you won't want to let it go.
Em                     C
Someday we'll lose the war,
         G                     D
But till then we will dream of winning.

C          G
I won't forget,
               D
The things you said,
           Em                      C
When I was down and I was tired of it.
              G
The words you spoke,
                D*
They brought me home.
C                   G
When it was time to fight,
           D
We chose a side,
             Em                              C
But everyone knew that something didn't feel right.
                G
So we stood our ground,
                 D*
And waited for a sign.

You said don't look back!

Don't look back!
   C          G
We won't look back,
              D
We won't look down,
               Em
We've come too far,
                       C
We're too high off the ground.
                G
The wheels have turned,
            D
The lessons learned.
