The Dear Hunter – The Fire (Remains) Chords

No Capo
G
For so long have my teeth held my
D
tongue from a venomous voice
Em
But the poison has passed from my lips to my hands
C
An incendiary ploy

G
(Hell will open up it's flue)
D
I bare my soul through the flames before me
Em                             C
(And you will witness what the fire can undo)

G
Far from the ash I will be born again
D
Where every debt is repaid
Em
Nothing left to keep me out of paradise
C
As portraits of the past fade away

G
The id dots the eyes of antiquity
D
While the ego, of late, has held sway
Em
Too foolish to stray past the line
C
too weary to stay, too weary to stay
G Far too long have I waited to witness the balances bend D In the favor of wrongs being remedied Em C Wickedness coming to an end G Far from the ash I will be born again D Where every debt is repaid Em Nothing left to keep me out of paradise C As portraits of the past fade away
G Far beyond the act I will be whole again D A phoenix out of the flame Em I'm burying that menace in my memory C A funeral held in my name G The ritual pyre's sending smoke to the sky D As the building continues to burn Em The wrath in the ruin, the pain in the grave C As the lies are retired to the urn G But we can't keep the embers from catching D The truth from destroying us all Em Do I die as the martyr or miscreant? C I'll make the call, I'll make the call G Far from the ash I will be born again D We here every debt is repaid Em Nothing left to keep me out of paradise C As portraits of the past fade away G Far beyond the act I will be whole again D A phoenix out of the flame Em I'm burying that menace in my memory C A funeral held in my name
