C&W V2.

Verse 1

G
set the world ablaze amidst cries for peace
tore boots from bare feet over populous screams
              C                   G
hope is lost 
hope is lost

G
child at prayer with no faith that she’ll be heard
sons and brothers laying dead and theres no word
              C                   G
hope is lost 
hope is lost

G
torn from your home for this bloody slaughter
leave lonely the flesh of your wives and your daughter’s
              C                   G
hope is lost 
hope is lost

G f# Am

CHORUS
Am
drinking poison laced water our throats are hoarse
Em
Wretched itching, charred burnt flesh and sores
Am
acid gas rotten lungs burnt flesh and worse
Em
men occupy the carcass of dead horse
Am
get out of dead horse go into the whores
Em
go into the whores and come out smelling worse

Am Em Am C G

Verse 

G
built to burn macrame and stone walls fall
serfs marched to death beholden not to themselves
              C                   G
hope is lost 
hope is lost

G
victorious march over muck bloodied creeks
corpses lay lost prone corrupted amongst twigs
              C                   G
hope is lost 
hope is lost

G f# Am

Prechorus of some sort

Abandon all hope and run for you life.

 

CHORUS

Em Am C G

G
shadows pass on what once we knew as the light
mistakes we renew and cause life to take flight
              C                   G
hope is lost 
hope is lost

G f# G
