As The World Bleeds

	  		
verse 1 - N.C 

Why do we only call Your name when there?s no one else to call? 

And we only really seek You when our mighty towers fall 

Why do we say You?ve failed us  

And You?ve turned Your eyes away 

When we?re only sleeping in the bed we made? 

Why do we call for free will, but reject all consequence? 

Why?s the path we?ve made to Heaven stained with the blood of innocence? 

Why?d we ignore the warnings that we?ve read and always known 

And get angry when we reap the things we?ve sown? 

verse 1 - Continued  
      D#m        C#  
So we blame You 
           B                   F# 
?Cause our world?s not come out right 
          G#m         D#m  
While the devil?s masquerading 
      B             C# 
As an angel of the light 
      D#m    C# 
Just imagine 
        B                 F# 
All the pride and all the nerve 
       G#m                     C#                B       F#  
To ask where You?ve been, when we?re the ones we serve 
G#m                      F#              
It?s not a mystery, it?s been foretold 
G#m                                      F# E 
  But we ignored the warning bell so long ago 
                         G#m       
There?s a way that seems right unto men 
          E                     F# 
But we?ll die with the wages of sin

verse 2 G#m F# G#m We live our lives like we could care less what You have to say F# E Then curse the skies when You don?t come clean up the ugly mess we?ve made G#m E F#m But You gave us a choice and we made it and dug ourselves into a hole G#m F# G#m We always thought we knew the way despite the things You said F# E We just ignored the pile of bodies and the bloodstains on the bed G#m E F# Painting ourselves right into a corner as life spiraled out of control
