light – As far  
C# 
as the eyes can see
 
From this  
Ab 
point above the world – Where mortals
C# 
dare their destiny
 
As it  
Fm 
radiates, may I witness
C# 
open-eyed
 
Let me re
Cm 
main where there is
C#

In want of

Rubicon

Chords and lyrics for Rubicon by Vnv Nation

 
 
Cm 
 
Ab 
 
G7 
 
Cm 
 
Praying for my
Cm 
self. These thoughts I try to hide.
 
I have  
G7 
faith in me and hope this will survive.
 
But it’s tearing me a
Ab 
part. I can’t hear the
Cm 
words by which I guide.
 
So I must  
G7 
ask again who will carry  
Cm 
me.
 
I cannot de
Cm 
ny that nothing can defend
 
from the h
G7 
elplessness that’s cutting deep inside,
 
and I can’t pre
Ab 
vent the thought that nothing’s  
Cm 
real.
 
Seems I’m waiting y
G7 
ears for this day to  
Cm 
end.
 
The strength I need to f
Cm 
eel, the pride inside of me,
 
Are not th
G7 
ere behind the face that’s staring back at me.
 
The anger and the p
Ab 
ain of knowing where I  
Cm 
am.
 
I have come so f
G7 
ar and I cannot re
Cm 
turn.
 
Nothing I can  
Ab 
do that I have not  
Cm 
done.
 
No words I can  
G7 
say. No truth left that I can see.
 
So must I let this  
Ab 
end so everything falls  
Cm 
apart.
 
Before I live the l
G7 
ife as I have always  
Cm 
done.
 
Tell me what to d
Ab 
o so I do nothing  
Cm 
wrong.
 
Something I can h
Ab 
ope for. Something real that
Cm 
I can see.
 
So nothing falls a
Ab 
part. So that it does not
Cm 
end.
 
I cannot re
G7 
turn. I can’t start  
Cm 
again.
