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
