(Use Riff 1)
Eleven saintly shrouded men 
Silhouettes stand against the sky 
One in front with a cross held high 
Come to wash my sins away

E5
Standing alone in the wind and rain 
                         D5
Feeling the fear that is growing 
E5
Sensing the change in the tide again 
                             D5
Brought by the storm that is brewing 
B5               C5
Feel the anxiety hold off the fear 
D5                       E5
Some of the doubt in the things you believe 
B5                          C5
Now that your faith will be put to the test 
D5                E5            D5
Nothing to do but await what is coming 

E5
Why then is God still protecting me 
                  D5 
Even when I don't deserve it 
E5
Though I am blessed with an inner strength 
                          D5
Some they would call it a penance 
B5                C5
Why am I meant to face this alone 
D5                  E5
Asking the question time and again 
B5                   C5
Praying to God won't keep me alive 
D5                      E5            D5
Inside my head feel the fear start to rise...
