Intro: E, C#m, A, B, E, C#m, Bm, A

E       C#m       A        B
We were born into daylight
E        C#m       Bm    A
We'll be buried at dusk
E         C#m          A        B
Once, our engines were flawless
E             C#m        Bm   A
And now we're covered in rust


E    C#m      A      B
I am tired of waiting
E      C#m          Bm  A
For my ship to come in
E     C#m         A      B
If we sink to the bottom,
E             C#m          Bm   A
Won't have to learn how to swim


            D     A           E
And we will fight against the tide
D              A       E
Rolling under side by side
           E          C#m
And if our lungs give out
Bm                  A        
We will breathe without
E            A               E
And heaven's gates will open wide

Solo: E, C#m, A, B, E, C#m, Bm, A

E     C#m      A      B
Everyday is a struggle
E        C#m           Bm   A
From the trough to the crest
E          C#m         A   B
Waves keep crashing forever
E        C#m             Bm  A
And only death brings us rest

E            C#m          A      B
Sometimes we drift on the current
E            C#m         Bm    A
Sometimes we wrestle the rip
E          C#m         A      B
If I'm not waving but drowning
E          C#m           Bm   A
Promise to not lose your grip


            D     A           E
And we will fight against the tide
D              A       E
Rolling under side by side
           E          C#m
And if our lungs give out
Bm                  A        
We will breathe without
E            A               E
And heaven's gates will open wide

Solo: E, C#m, A, B, E, C#m, Bm, A (x3)

E       C#m      A   B
In the garden of Eden
E       C#m     Bm    A
We were given a choice
E       C#m          A     B
Whether righteous or wicked
E
Follow the sound of my voice (x8)

            D     A           E
And we will fight against the tide
D              A       E
Rolling under side by side
           E          C#m
And if our lungs give out
Bm                  A        
We will breathe without
E            A               E
And heaven's gates will open wide
