[Intro]
Am  C  3x
G  C


[Verse]
                  Am             C
It's empty in the valley of your heart
                  Am            C
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
                  Am
Away from all the fears
            C             G    C
And all the faults you've left behind


[Verse]
                    Am              C
The harvest left no food for you to eat
                  Am              C
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
                    Am
But I have seen the same
           C        G    C
I know the shame in your defeat


[Chorus]
    C      F       C
But I will hold on hope
    C       F       C
And I won't let you choke
F      C      G
On the noose around your neck
    Am         F          C
And I'll find strength in pain
    Am     F         C
And I will change my ways
     F       C                   G
I'll know my name as it's called again


[Interlude]
Am  C  4x


[Verse]
                   Am                C
Cause I have other things to fill my time
                 Am                  C
You take what is yours and I'll take mine
                  Am
Now let me at the truth
           Am         G      C
Which will refresh my broken mind


[Verse]
               Am                C
So tie me to a post and block my ears
          Am                            C
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
                  Am
I know my call despite my faults
    C          G       C
And despite my growing fears


[Chorus]
    C      F       C
But I will hold on hope
    C       F       C
And I won't let you choke
F      C      G
On the noose around your neck
    Am        F           C
And I'll find strength in pain
    Am     F         C
And I will change my ways
     F       C            G             C~
I'll know my name as it's called again


[Verse]
                    Am                   C
So come out of your cave walking on your hands
                  Am             C
And see the world hanging upside down
                     Am
You can understand dependence
         C        G       C
When you know the maker's hand


[Bridge]
   C         F       C
So make your siren's call
    C    F       C
And sing all you want
  F        C             G
I will not hear what you have to say
      Am     F       C
Cause I need freedom now
    Am     F       C
And I need to know how
   F       C            G
To live my life as it's meant to be


[Interlude 2x]
Am  F  C
Am  F  C
F  C  G  G


[Chorus]
    C      F       C
But I will hold on hope
    C       F       C
And I won't let you choke
F      C      G
On the noose around your neck
    Am         F          C
And I'll find strength in pain
    Am     F         C
And I will change my ways
F            C           G             C~
I'll know my name as it's called again
