*NOTE: Riff 3 differs from Riff 2 in the tempo of the chord strikes, represented by a change in chords' spacing, and in the fact that the chords are muted.* Verse 1 Lyrics There's a man in a world of pain Can you hear it in the air And the words he breathes? Just a man nothing more, nothing less But nonetheless lived his life with every drop he bleeds But let me take you on a journey Times of torment, times of pain Where the history it rolls the clocks they never change. He's lived his life the best he knows Which always goes to show You and I were not one and the same (No way!)
