If you're playing the electric parts, I suggest you play power chords for the verse and
just single
root notes for the second part of the verse, and strum the chorus. That sounds the best
to me but feel
free to have fun and strum however you please :)
Intro:
Em G D Bm (3x)
[Em] [G] [B] [Em]  
Verse 1.1
Bury me in silence
For I'll never hear the truth
[Em] [G] [D] [Bm]  
My coffin will be empty
Cause you'll never steal my youth
[Em] [G] [D] [Bm]  
VERSE 1.2
I was [Em]born to live be[G]side you
But you tr[A]ied to stop me g[Bm]row
Now I'm [Em]living on the [G]run
[A] [Bm]  
Who s[Em]aid it only [G]rains
[Bm] [Em]  
"short" CHORUS
[G] Speed of darkness lights ou[Em]r way
[G] We set our course for Amer[Em]ica
[D] No bitterness will bite my [Em]tongue
[D] The speed of darkness has be[A]gun
(Beg[Em]un)[G] [D] [Bm]
[Em] [G] [D] [Bm]  
VERSE 2.1 and 2.2 same as before
It's something of a pity
But you'll never understand
How a boy can grow and
Still never be a man
I would trade the sun for nothing
And the glancing of a star
If you could just remember
Grains of dust is all we are
It only takes a second
For a beat to kill a heart
CHORUS 2
[G] Speed of darkness lights our[Em] way
[G] We set our course for Amer[Em]ica
[D] No bitterness will bite this t[Em]ongue
I've reconciled with all that's g[G]one
The speed of [D]darkness has be[A]gun
INTERLUDE
[F#m] Only time and life w[Bm]ill tell
[F#m] But it's a long way home when yo[D]u're in h[A]ell
[F#m] Where constant demons fractur[Bm]e souls
[F#m] Once a nightmare, now just l[D]ifeless gh[A]osts
SOLO
B5 D (2x)
BRIDGE
[G] Speed of d[Bm]arkness lights our[A] way
VERSE 3.1 and 3.2 same as before
You tore this land asunder
But my pride will bring it back
I would trade the sun for nothing
And the glancing of a star
If you could just remember
Grains of dust is all we are
It only takes a second
For beat to kill a heart
CHORUS 2
OUTRO
Em G D Bm 3x
[Em] [G] [Bm] [Em]  
That's it, this song is fun as hell to play. Enjoy
