Song progression: [Intro] x1 [Riff 1] x1 /w lyrics: All that we can do is just survive. [Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics: All that we can do to help ourselves is stay alive. [Am] [Riff 3] x2 [Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics: G~ Ragged lines of ragged grey. Skeletons they shuffle away G~ [Riff 3] x1 Shouting guards and smoking guns will cut down the unlucky ones. (strum) A5 Em I clutch the wire fence until my fingers bleed. [Riff 4] x1 /w lyrics: A wound that will not heal. A heart that cannot feel. (strum) Am Em Hoping that the horror will recede. [Riff 4] x1 /w lyrics: Hoping that tomorrow we'll all be freed. [Riff 3] x2 [Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics: G~ Sickness to insanity, prayer to profanity. G~ [Riff 3] x1 Days and weeks and months go by. Don't feel the hunger too weak to cry. (strum) A5 Em I hear the sound of gunfire at the prison gate. [Riff 4] x1 /w lyrics: Are the liberators here? Do I hope or do I fear? (strum) Am Em For my father and my brother it's too late, F F F [Riff 1] x1 But I must help my mother stand up straight. Repeat this part TWICE: [Riff 1] x1 then [Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics: Are we the last ones left alive? Are we the only human beings to survive? Then go into the [Guitar Solo]: Let the harmonics ring; notes with a '!' represent vibrato instead of a held note; also use echo and a harmonizer set to a perfect 5th.
