Intro: Em C Em C

      Em
I was climbing now I'm falling,
            C
I've been pushed off by a man,
        Em                           C
who has made it to the top and now defends it 'cos he can,
         Am                            Em
and I have found a breach in his front line
      Em 
I was open now I'm hidden,
          C
from the danger of his words,
         Em                          C
I have found a good position and i'll play for what he's worth
      Am                         Em
and he will find nowhere left to hide

Chorus:
        C                       
I will lift her love and I'll break your spirit,
        Em
I will dig a hole and I'll throw you in it,
      C                                             Am
only time will tell if we're all just cynics on the run.
                                 Em
if we're all just cynics come undone.


      Em 
I was losing now we're drawing
                C
and I'm not afraid to draw my blood
Em                               C
I'm not backing down so I'd surrender cause you should
              Am                                   Em
and face the truth you raise the flag I'll tear it down.
    Em                     
You may have won the battle
          C
but i'll take the fight to you
          Em
and your flag is on the ground
           C                                 Am
and your bones they rattle through, as they break you,
                        Em
your fear has now come true

Bridge:
        C                       
I will lift her love and I'll break your spirit,
        Em
I will dig a hole and I'll throw you in it,
      C                                             Am
only time will tell if we're all just cynics on the run.
                                 C
if we're all just cynics come undone
                          Am
All just waiting for the gun,
                    C
we are tied to the truth,
                         Am
the tie that binds me to you
                   C
I'm acting on my words,
                      Am
with all that I have heard,
                 C
with honesty in mind,

you'll find
      Em                                  C
that I'm not the liar see the truth in my eyes!
   Em                                    C
No I'm not the liar see the truth in my eyes!

Chorus:
        C                       
I will lift her love and I'll break your spirit,
        Em
I will dig a hole and I'll throw you in it,
      C                                             Am
only time will tell if we're all just cynics on the run.
                                 Em
if we're all just cynics come undone.
