Verse: (ska chords)*

E                              B

"How's your life?" "How are things?"

"great they're going okay!"

E                          B

Something stale and superficial, not to ruin your day.

E                          B

Something swell, something gay, with the toothiest smile,

E                             B

something sappy, something happy, something smells like

 D                   B                    E              B

bile. I don't want to burst your bubble, not to rain on your

          D                  B           E

parade,   underneath my skin I'm tired, limping down the

B

path I've made.

The clap of thunder in my veins,

B      C# D      E

breaks on barren manifold,

B     C#  D         E

still and small and so mundane,

B                 E

the greatest story ever ...

Are you crawling through dismal? Gray of nothing, frostbite

        D                    B                 E

kills.  Does this world make light of weaving, shrouds to

       B               D           B               E

bury , graves to fill? I am just a kindred spirit, a runner

       B

who is running still.

Prechorus:(Octaves-Power chords)

Welcome to the longest mile,

All my dreams are slowly dying.

I can count my years in scars.

E        B          E     B

The only one that's never left me,

E           B     E    B

has carried me so very far.

E             B         E         B

I've heard it said that He wastes nothiing,

E       B    E    B

so beautiful to behold,

E      B         E       B

the Author of my hope is writing,

E        B         E

the greatest story ever...
