Written In Anger
DAMIAN WILSON â€" Written in Anger
from the “Built for Fighting” album (2016) 

Capo 3rd fret

[Intro]
Em D Em D

[Verse 1]
Em
Hammersmith underpass, 7 p.m.
Em
Amongst all the drunkards and legions of men
  C          D         G            Em
A troubadour playing a song for the boys
C         D          G           Em
Bask in a chorus, he silence the noise
  C               D
A melody everyone heard
    C                      D
But somehow left people disturbed

[Verse 2]
Em
Cruising through town as the riots began
Em
The young man retires to an old bed for them
    C           D           G           Em
His mattress is laid like a courtesan's bed
    C             D             G           Em
The angst that he feels running wild in his head
    C                           D
His voice in his heart could be heard
       C                  D
Like a fire to ravage the world

[Chorus 1]
       G    D      Em
In the song I have written with anger
    C            D
And words I have spoken ain't true
           G  D        Em                   C
With their meaning, it barely resembles the feelings
   D
Or my point of view

[Verse 3]
Em
The fire in the furnace gets sucked to its hearth
       Em
As the young man becomes a success overnight
C           D         G             Em
Filling out stadiums, grand concert halls
    C          D             G           Em
But strangely around him was torture and war
C                D
Blissfully so unaware
         C                         D
That the source of destruction was there

[Chorus 2]
       G    D      Em
In the song I have written with anger
    C            D
And words I have spoken ain't true
           G  D        Em                   C
With their meaning, it barely resembles the feelings
   D
Or my point of view
C              G
So look to yourself
C                 G
And find your own way
C             G     D/F# Em                  D
If bitterness hides in-  side it forms tidal waves
        C            D    G        D/F#           Em
Let the last of your lies falter before they're defined
        C            D        Em
Let the last of your words be kind

[Bridge] 
Em D Em D

[Verse 4]
Em
Trying to bring the old man back to life
Em
His body is weak and no longer survives
    C             D       G               Em
The source of his anger replaced now with calm
C            D            G        Em
Some might believe he can do us no harm
        C                    D
But the drama will always be heard
       C                   D
As his message devours the world

[Chorus 3]
       G    D      Em
In the song I have written with anger
    C            D
And words I have spoken ain't true
           G  D        Em                   C
With their meaning, it barely resembles the feelings
   D
Or my point of view
C              G
So look to yourself
C                 G
And find your own way
C             G     D/F# Em                  D
If bitterness hides in-  side it forms tidal waves
        C            D    G        D/F#           Em
Let the last of your lies falter before they're defined
        C            D        Em
Let the last of your words be kind
        C            D        Em
Let the last of your words be kind

[Outro]
Em D Em D Em D Em D Em
