My Own Prison  Creed

Date: Tue, 4 Nov 1997 20:55:09 -0500
From: Jeff A Hayes
Subject: TAB: c/creed/
Archivist: I sent two versions of this song so that I could answer the
requests of the people who didn't want to tune down a whole step.
My Own Prison (Version 1)
My Own Prison
Tuning: down one whole step (D G C F A D)
all notes sound one whole step lower than written
(i.e. "Em" is actually a Dm)
(can be played in dropped-d, but doesn't sound as good)
Lyrics from CD booklet
Didn't bother to include strumming patterns, they're not that hard.
I tried to place the lyrics somewhat close to where they are in
the song.
Intro, Verse, and Chorus
[Em] [C] [G]

1.A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today, Just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale, The cage made of steel
Screams fill the room, Alone I drop and kneel
Silence now the sound, My breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around, My face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence, Expecting no return
Here there is no penance, My skin begins to burn
2.I hear a thunder in the distance, See a vision of a cross
I feel the pain that was given on that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness, Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden and grant me life eternally
Should have been dead on a Sunday morning banging my head
No time for mourning, Ain't got no time
[G] So I held my head up high
[G/F#] Hiding hate that burns insi[F]de
Which only fuels their selfish pr[E]ide
[G] We're all held captive out from the s[G/F#]un
A sun that shines only on s[F]ome
We the meek are all in o[E]ne
[G] [D] [Em] [C]  

[G] [D] [Em] [C]  

I c[G]ry out to God, Seeking only his dec[D]ision
Gab[Em]riel stands and confirms I've created my own pr[C]ison

My Own Prison (Version 2)
My Own Prison
Tuning : 'Dropped-D' (DADGBE, low to high)
Here's the second version I did, because I don't think most
people like to tune down a whole step...You guys let me know
what you think.
