Arcade Fire - Intervention: chords

Am                F         C
The king’s taken back the throne.
Am           F       C
The useless seed is sown.
Am                     F               C/E
When they say they’re cutting off the phone,
G                      C
I tell 'em you're not home

No place to hide
You were fighting as a soldier on their side
You're still a soldier in your mind
Though nothing's on the line

You say it's money that we need
As if we were only mouths to feed
I know no matter what you say
There are some debts you'll never pay

Chorus:
Am                E                F      C
Working for the church while your family dies
Am                  E
You take what they give you
         F         C
And you keep it inside.
Am      E        F             C
Every spark of friendship and love
                    G
will die without a home
 C        F       Em            G         C
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone".

I can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of here
Don't wanna fight, don't wanna die
Just wanna hear you cry

Who's gonna throw the very first stone?
Oh, who's gonna reset the bone?
Walking with your head in a sling
Wanna hear the soldier sing:

Chorus:
"Workin' for the Church while my family dies
Your little baby sister's gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and
love will die without a home"
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone"

Em     C          G
I can taste your fear.
Em                          C               G
It’s gonna lift you up and take you out of here.
Em       C                G
And the bone shall never heal;
D                   G
I care not if you kneel.

Em        C        G
We can’t find you now,
Em                                 C        G
But they’re gonna get their money back somehow.
Em            C            G
And when you finally disappear,
            D                  G
We'll just say you were never here.

Chorus:
Em                B
Working for the church while
      C           G
your life falls apart.
Em            B              C             G
Singin' hallelujah with the fear in your heart.
Em      B        C             G
Every spark of friendship and love
                    D
will die without a home."
G         C       Bm            D         G
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone."
Em        C       Bm            D         G
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone."
