G5                   Csus
Warm yourself by the fire son,
D5                        Csus
And the morning will come soon.
G5                         Csus
I'll tell you stories of a better time,
D5                      Csus
In a place that we once knew.


[Verse 2:]
G5                               Csus
Before we packed our bags and we left all this
D5               Csus
behind us in the dust,
G5                           Csus
We had a place that we could call home
      D5                Csus
And a life no-one could touch.


[Chorus:]
Em
Don't hold me up now,
G
I can stand my own ground
D
I don't need your help now,
C
You won't let me down, down, down.
Em
Don't hold me up now,
G
I can stand my own ground
D
I don't need your help now,
C
You won't let me down, down, down, ddoowwnn..

[Verse 3:]
G5                       Csus
We are the angry and the desperate,
    D5              Csus
The hungary and the cold.
G5                        Csus
We are the one's who kept crying,
    D5                      Csus
And always did what we were told.


[Verse 4:]
G5                        Csus
But we've sweaty when you slept so cold,
       D5             Csus
In the safety of your home.
G5                         Csus
We've been pulling out the nails that holds up,
D5                Csus
Everything you've known.

[Chorus:]
Em
Don't hold me up now,
G
I can stand my own ground
D
I don't need your help now,
C
You won't let me down, down, down.
Em
Don't hold me up now,
G
I can stand my own ground
D
I don't need your help now,
C
You won't let me down, down, down, ddoowwnn..

[Bridge:]
Csus         D5                      Csus
So open your eyes, so lets be on our way,
Csus               D5                Csus
Broken windows and ashes guiding the way.
Csus           D5                            Csus
Keep crying no longer we'll sing through the day,
Csus                 Em7                     D5
The lives that we've lost, the lives we've reclaimed.

****Little mock-chorus at the end but same chords as chorus above.

The End

***For acoustic, verses 2 & 4 can be played with G/C/D/C instead of G5/Csus/D5/Csus to a 
distorted sound.

**Special Thanks to Nuzza for the intro struming bit.

*And if anyone has any suggestions, well too bad, make ur own tab, it was a b*tch to do 
for this. And by the way this is the exact same song as diaspora which was mislabeled on 
of the albums, so i did this for both.
