The Guardian Ellies Song

B -> 2210xx

Intro
Em Am B7 G B
Em Am B7

Verse 1
Em
When does it get quiet?
Am        B7           G        B
Time was supposed to extinguish the
Em           Am             B7
desire But the embers won't snuff out

Em             Am
    Haunted by your smiles
   B7                  G     B
The mask keeps getting heavier
Em        Am                B7
  One step forward, two steps back

Chorus
Am                                 B7
There's a noose round my neck and the further I get
     G       B         Em
It's harder & harder to breathe
    Am       B7             G   B   Em
Can I find a way to cut the rope?

         Am
I've been waiting for dawn
        B7
But the light is all gone
      G           B        Em
Don't know if I'm already blind
      Am       B7      G B Em
Can I leave it all behind?

Instrumental
Em Am B7 G B
Em Am B7

Verse 2
                Em            Am           G   B    Em
What's it really for if it's not yours and it's not mine?
               Em         Am        B7
This victory is not what I hoped for
Em              Am          B7             G      B
   How was I to know that everything would end up like this?
Em                 Am             B7
    Survival of the fittest... of sorts

Chorus}
                  Am
So I've become the bringer of death
B7
A lover of life
     G       B              Em
The one who guards from the dark of the night
Am           B7       G   B  Em
I'll be the hammer of war
Am         B7
Justice & mercy don't live side by side
   G     B        Em
So in retribution I abide
   Am          B7              G     B Em
I'll tip the scales to justice's end
                Em
but can it make amends?

Am B7 G B
Em Am B7

Verse 3
           En        Am     B7       G    B  Em
Kill or be killed... what a way to live and die
            Am                  B7
I just can't see this cycle ever ending
Em           Am          B7              G   B
   How can I correct the damage done when I can't
Em             Am                  B7
 feel the consequences of my recourse

Chorus
                  Am
So I've become the bringer of death
B7
A lover of life
     G       B              Em
The one who guards from the dark of the night
Am           B7       G   B  Em
I'll be the hammer of war
         Am
I've been waiting for dawn
        B7
But the light is all gone
      G           B        Em
Don't know if I'm already blind
      Am       B7      G B Em
Can I leave it all behind?
