D Tíwas in the early eveniní Near the presence of the moon You told me you would meet me here Well now is not too soon G This dagger twisting in my back D Tells me I never should G Have trusted everything to fall F A From beggar to the fool D I see your face like every race A serpent with two arms Devouring me while rains the sun With dreams in foreign lands G This cold and dark tormented hell D Is all Iíll ever know G So when you get to heaven F A May the devil be the judge (with chorus riff) With another bag of bricks D I scratch your name across these walls And with my blood turns red Then drips upon my killing floor Where now I call my bed G No precious light to harbor D Like so many here before G And every drop of life you shed F A Now breathes a thousand more (with chorus riff) With another bag of bricks A Temper filled with blindness Leads this lost and lonely man Dragged around your whipping tree A scourge you canít command D So deafen me with silence Drown me with your roar Scowl me with your hollow eyes Still burniní to the core G No door will go unanswered D Like so many closed before G No vagabond to knock upon D This tired and beatiní war G When all return to exile D Free from all once bound G Decline and brawl old parasites F A The truth will yet be found (with chorus riff) With another bag of bricks instrumental interlude: quickly: D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G *Then D over the accordion solo* N.C. This cold and dark tormented hell Is all Iíll ever know So when you get to heaven May the devil be the judge A Temper filled with blindness Leads this lost and lonely man Dragged around your whipping tree A scourge you canít command D So deafen me with silence Drown me with your roar Scowl me with your hollow eyes Still burniní to the core G No door will go unanswered D Like so many closed before G No vagabond to knock upon D This tired and beatiní war G When all return to exile D Free from all once bound G Decline and brawl old parasites F A The truth will yet be found (with chorus riff x3) With another bag of bricks instrumental outro: quickly: D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G D D D D | D D D D | D D D G G NOTE: The F to A move at the end of each verse sounds much better when A is played barred, rather than in the open position. Also the reoccurring D may sound better as a D5, though it is definitely not a Dm. and sometimes at the end of certain verse lines, the violin/accordion slide this little bit in:
e|-----2-3-2h3p2--------------|B|---------------4-3----------|G|----------------------------|D|----------------------------|A|----------------------------|E|----------------------------|
And for any mandolin or violin players, those few riffs look like this:
e|----------2-3-5-3-2----------2-3-5---------2-3-5-3-2----------------|A|--5-5-5-5-----------5-5-5-5--------5-5-5-5-----------5-5-5-5-3-3-5--|D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------------------------------| and
