[Pre-Verse]

Dm  Dm  Dm  F

[Verse 1]

Dm

Hey redeemer now what`s become of me?

F                      C

Taken in by promise, awakening in grief

Dm

Collecting us like puppets you instrumentalize

F                          C

A frigid trepidation in a million puppet eyes

[Pre-Chorus]

Bb            F                  Bb                 C

God gave His word just to let us down, where is He now?

[Chorus]

G                   D

You've been facing heaven

          C                           Am            D

You were lost and left alone, you're welcome to my home and

G              D

Found another heaven

        C                           Am               D

It was you who took my hand, come into the promised land

[Pre-Verse]

Dm  Dm  Dm  F

[Verse 2]

Dm

You scratched my back and I scratched yours

F                                    C

It's you who makes decisions, I just open up the doors

Dm

Whining in the gutter they forget their sanctity

F                            C

Welcome to my clockwork vanity machinery

[Pre-Chorus]

Bb             F                Bb             C

You gave your word, you let me down what am I now?

[Chorus]

G                   D

You've been facing heaven

          C                           Am            D

You were lost and left alone, you're welcome to my home and

G              D

Found another heaven

        C                           Am               D         C

It was you who took my hand, come into the promised land

[Bridge]

C                Em

Oh as far as the eye can see

                    C               Em

They're bent in submission, empty inside

            C                                Em

An army of scarecrows like me, thousands of broken dreams

              C                                 Em

Thousands of tragedies tried to run from their destiny

                     C                D

Oh, like moths to a flame, driven by vanity

                       C                   D                D

They've been off to Jerusalem, chasing a dream, calling on me

                       Dm

We're just trading in needs

[Pre-Verse] in place of the guitar solo

Dm  Dm  Dm  F

[Chorus] x2

G                   D

You've been facing heaven

          C                           Am            D

You were lost and left alone, you're welcome to my home and

G              D

Found another heaven

        C                           Am               D

It was you who took my hand, come into the promised land
