[Verse I]
Dm     Bb                F        C
Do you know what's worth fighting for,
Dm        Bb        F      C
When it's not worth dying for?
Dm      Bb        F      C
Does it take your breath away
        Bb                 C
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Dm       Bb         F       C
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
Dm      Bb         F        C
And you look for a place to hide?
Dm      Bb             F     C
Did someone break your heart inside?
          Bb         
You're in ruins

[Chorus]

One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5   C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5  F5       C5
Throw up your arms into the sky,
        Bb5   F5   C5
You and I

[Verse II]
Dm          Bb     F          C
When you're at the end of the road
Dm      Bb       F        C
And you lost all sense of control
Dm        Bb           F           C
And your thoughts have taken their toll
          Bb                             C
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Dm   Bb             F      C
Your faith walks on broken glass
Dm      Bb       F       C
And the hangover doesn't pass
Dm        Bb   F        C
Nothing's ever built to last
          Bb       
You're in ruins.
