*note* for the verse, the main chords (ie. A, E, etc) are switched for
seventh chords (ie. A7, E7, etc.) occasionally; listen to cd for timing.

A / A7    E / E7    D  E  D     D  E  D     A  A/G  A  A/G

A / A7                   
is that gash in your leg really why you have stopped?

         E / E7                   
cos i've noticed all the others, though they're gashed, they're still going

      D        E         D     E            D        E
cos i feel like the real reason that you're quitting 

               D        E            A            A/G            A    A/G
is that you're admitting that you've lost all the will to battle on

         D             E             C#m          F#m
will the fight for our sanity be the fight of our lives?

               Bm           C#m             F#m             E
now that we've lost all the reasons that we thought that we had

still, the battle that we're in rages on till the end
with explosions wounds are open, sights and smells, eyes and noses
but the thought that went unspoken was understanding that you're broken

          A         A/G          A A/G        A A/G        A A/G
still the last volunteer battles on...battles on...battles on...

F    E    Dm

end on:
   Dm
