Demon Hunter - Beheaded Acoustic chords

      
This is from Demon Hunter's second album, "Summer of Darkness." I thought
it would be nice for some people to be able to hear the same lyrics
presented differently, so I worked up an acoustic version. I'll be posting
my own recording of it on my profile if you want to actually hear how I
play and sing it. I think my guitar's tuned down a half step, as well, just
for reference.

Here are some barred chords I reduced to give it a darker, more open sound
between verses and on the bridge.

Verse:
EmIn the never-ending circle where the powerless meet
There grows a struggle from the burden of sustaining defeat
CIn the face of every coward lies the blindest of hate
Am Em Gbar F#barAnd in their eyes: a sharpened image of the damage they ma-ade
EmYou look at me to bear the burden of the suffering past
It wasn't me behind the veil of a heartless mask
CAnd where were you the day that everybody cursed your name?
Am Em GbarYou were the distant voice of pride that never stood the sha-ame
Prechorus:
Em GThe weak of the mind will use fist, and the fist of the frail will bring gun
Am CThe loudest of guns provoke bombs, and in wrath he will chase 'til its done
Chorus:
Em Am Em Am Em Am Em Am Em Gbar F#barYour history is dead wrong. Dead. Philosophy is dead wrong. Dead. Wro-ong.
Verse:
EmWithin the mind of modern culture there's an idle cog
It is the section of humanity that never forgot
CAnd in the midst of moving forward we have given the right
Am Em Gbar F#barTo let the wolves attack the sheep and bury guilt inside
EmI won't forget the twisted picture of the filth that we were
Or disregard the fading voices of the people we hurt
CBut I was never pulling triggers or degrading your face
Am Em GbarDon't look at me to give the reason for the pain that you tra-ace
Prechorus:
Em GThe weak of the mind will use fist, and the fist of the frail will bring gun
Am CThe loudest of guns provoke bombs, and in wrath he will chase 'til its done
Chorus:
Em Am Em Am Em Am Em AmYour history is dead wrong. Dead. Philosophy is dead wrong. Dead. Wrong.
Em Am Em Am Em Am Em Am Your history is dead wrong. Dead. Philosophy is dead wrong. Dead. Wro-ong.
