Verse 1:
  
 E5                      Db5                   
Lying, awake at night l wipe the sweat from my brow
                 D5                      B5
But its not the fear, cos ld rather go now.
 E5                        Db5.  
Trying, to visualize the horrors that will lay ahead 
                D5               B5
The desert sand mound, a burial ground.

Chorus:
        C5           Db5         Bb5         C5
When it comes to the time are we partners in crime
        C5           Db5         Bb5         C5
When it comes to the time well be ready to die.


Now play Riff 2 again.




Verse 2:


 E5                     Db5
God, let us go now and finish whats to be done
             D5                B5
Thy kingdom come, thy shall be done, on earth
 E5                     Db5        
Trying, to justify to ourselves the reasons to go
                         D5               B5
Should we live and let live? Forget or forgive?

But how can we let them go on this way?

The reign of terror corruption must end.
       C5          Db5         Bb5      C5
And we know, deep down theres no other way
    C5         Db5     Bb5        C5
