[Intro]
Em G C Am x4

[Verse 1]
C
The tyranny of deterioration
                                            Em
It worries me that it's all just a waste of time
       G                 D
Taking one step forward, two steps back
      C   
Still I believe there's a thread through the thorns

And I believe that somewhere it's warm
    Em                  G                  D
And I believe that it's ever bright beyond this black

[Chorus]
        C             Am
So keep holding on to hope without assurance
C               Am        Em
Holding on to a memory of light
             C                 Am
But will the morning come? For all I know
            C                Am             Em
We’ll never see the sun, but together we’ll fight the long defeat

[Repeat Intro x4]
Em G C Am

[Verse 2]
C
The suffering that I see all around
                                          Em
It's enough to keep me crashing down till I
       G                  D
I lie wrecked and reeling from these falls
      C
Still I believe there's a word in the wire
                                      
And I believe there's a way through the fire
    Em                  G                D
And I believe there's a joy that blooms beyond these walls

[Chorus]
        C             Am
So keep holding on to hope without assurance
C               Am        Em
Holding on to a memory of light
             C                 Am
But will the morning come? For all I know
            C                Am             Em                D C    
We’ll never see the sun, but together we’ll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em    

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em

 G Em                    D       D C
Together we'll fight the long defeat

C Am     G     G Em
