Intro:
Shane Speaks:
Once upon a time
Before the lakes and
rivers were polluted
Before the animals were
poached to extinction
And before man had destroyed
the earth's atmosphere
There was a great ship
[G#m] This vessel was to
venture into new waters
To find new resources to make
life easier and more enjoyable
[F#m] It was a simple mission for the crew
Who were excited to be a part of this union
[C#m] They pledged their allegiance to the captain
And vowed to be there no matter what
In sickness, health, and possible [G#m]death
As time passed by there was
no new land to be found
As the days grew [F#m]shorter
And the nights grew
longer and colder
The crew became more and more
skeptical about the captain's vision
O[C#m]riginally passionate and
committed true and faithful
They now began to revolt
Verse 1:
Sing:
You [G#m]crossed the line
I was honest
I never promised [E]anything
Just a brotherhood to
stand for something
[C#m] And everyone should
take the lead
Follow your [E]dreams
If you don't try you fail
Refrain 1:
Shane Speaks:
[G#m] As the mutiny started and the
captain was overthrown and
chained He [E]asked them why
their minds had changed
There's no [C#m]gold to be found
no treasure in the ground
[E] We won't die for this
We won't die for you
Verse 2:
Sing:
You've [G#m]lost your minds
I was honest
I never promised [E]anything
Just a brotherhood to
stand for something
[C#m] And even if they disagree
Follow your [G#m]dreams
If you don't try you fail
Interlude: E--F#--G#m- x2
Refrain 2:
Shane Speaks:
[E] This dream is now
[F#] A shipwreck in the sand
[G#m] They gave up they
made all their demands
[E] The storm consumed
[F#] fifty seven souls
[G#m] Who died in vain
his love they stole
Chorus 1:
[E] This union[F#] a battle
fought and [G#m]lost
This union is not
about the [E]cause
This union[F#] was
never about [G#m]love
This union This union
(Repeat)
Chorus 2:
[E] This union[F#] a battle
fought and [G#m]lost
This union is not
about the [E]cause
This union[F#] was
C#m(hold)
never about love
