Pain Lies On The Riverside
--------------------------
]: Am  Dm :[
Am                 Dm
I have never taken life
    Am                    Dm      
Yet I have often paid the price
    Am                            Dm
And you, you are a victim of this age
        Am
And the guilt that hangs around your neck
          Dm
Has got me locked up in a cage
              F        G             Am
You've got to learn to live until no end
                   F        G             E
But first you must learn to swim all over again
        
        Am               Dm
Because pain lies on the riverside
    Am              Dm    
And pain will never say goodbye
Am               Dm
Pain lies on the riverside
            E                F  G
So put your head in the water
         E                 F  G
Put your soul in the water
                         Am       
And join me for a swim tonight


I have forever always tried
To stay clean and constantly baptized
I am aware now that the river's banks are dry
And to wait for a flood
Is to wait for life

I've got to learn...

Operation Spirit (The Tyranny of Tradition)
-------------------------------------------

Em                                  (D)
Heard a lot of talk about the ocean
Em                                (D)
Heard a lot of talk about the sea
Em                                      (D)
Heard a lot of talk about a lot of things
Em                            (D)
Never meant that much to me
Em                                 (D)     
Heard a lot of talk about my spirit
Em                              (D)
Heard a lot of talk about my soul
Em                              
But I decided that anxiety and pain
     (D)    Em
Were better friends
            D
So I let it go
               Em   G D  
Did you let it go? (3x)
             A    
Let's get it back 
             C      D      Em
Let's get it back together

Heard a lot of talk about this Jesus
A man of love, a man of strength
But what a man was two thousand years ago
Means nothing at all to me today
He could have been telling me about my higher self
But he only lives inside my prayer
So what he was may have been beautiful
But the pain is right now and right here

Let it go...

Beauty Of Gray
--------------
]: Bm  F# :[
Bm                        F#
If I told you he was your brother
Bm                                F#
We could reminisce then you would go about your day
Bm                     F# 
If I said you ought to give him some of your water
      Bm                           F#
You'd shake your canteen and walk away
     G                                D    A
This perception that divides you from him
     G               D          A           G
Is a lie -- for some reason you never asked why
        D               A     G
This is not a black and white world
          D           A             C
You can't afford to believe in your side
        Bm                    Em  
This is not a black and white world
      Bm                               F# 
To be alive I say that the colors must swirl
      Bm                   Em
And I believe that maybe today
        D                 A                       Bm   F#      
We will all get to appreciate the beauty of gray

If I told you that she was your mother
We could analyze the situation and be gone
If I said you ought to give her some of your water
Your eyes would light up like the dawn

This perception that divides you from her...

We will all get to appreciate...
              
              Bm     Em
The beauty of gray
              D      A
