Verse 1:
Am                      G
I don't know what I was thinking
C                Dm
Leaving my child behind
     F           Abdim                Am    G
Now, I suffer the curse and now, I am blind
Am                   G         A7
With all this anger, guilt and sadness
A        Dbdim     Dm
Coming to haunt me forever
F                    Abdim                      Am   G
I can't wait for the cliff at the end of the river
Am                      G
Is this revenge I am seeking
C                  Dm
Or seeking someone to avenge me?
     F            Abdim                Am   G
Stuck in my own paradox, I wanna set myself free
Am                  G     A7
Maybe, I should chase and find
  A           Dbdim  Dm
Before they'll try to stop it
F                   Abdim                Am    G
It won't be long before I'll become a puppet
 
Chorus:
     Am      G
It's been so long
C               A7
Since I seen my son
             Dm
Lost to this monster
       Abdim         Am      G
To the man behind the slaughter
 Am               G
Since you've been gone
C                             A7
I've been singing this stupid song
            Dm
So, I could ponder
      Abdim            Am
The sanity of your mother
 
Interlude -x2-: Am G C E7
 
Verse 2:
Am                      G
I wish I lived in the present
C                Dm
With the gift of my past mistakes
     F           Abdim                Am    G
But the future keeps luring in like a pack of snakes
Am                   G         A7    A        Dbdim     Dm
Your sweet little eyes, your little smile is all I remember
F                    Abdim           Am   G
Those fuzzy memories mess with my temper
Am                      G        C                Dm
Justification is killing me but killing isn't justified
F           Abdim                Am    G
What happened to my son? I'm terrified
Am                   G         A7    A        Dbdim     Dm
It lingers in my mind and the thought keeps on getting on bigger
F                    Abdim           Am   G
I'm sorry, my sweet baby, I wish I'd been there
 
Chorus:
     Am      G
It's been so long
C               A7
Since I seen my son
             Dm
Lost to this monster
       Abdim         Am
To the man behind the slaughter
 Am               G
Since you've been gone
C                             A7
I've been singing this stupid song
            Dm
So, I could ponder
      Abdim            Am     G
The sanity of your mother
