Fistful of Sand
Five Iron Frenzy

D C Bb A C# D C Bb A C# D
D                                 G
Up from the sands of the mighty Sahara comes,
    A                                 D
Our hero bold, who so it's told, is a lot like you and me.
His passion burns, the world it turns,
   G
He fills his hand to fill the void,
    A
And fuels the constant feeling,
   D
Of nothingness inside his soul.

G                  D
Feels like nothing ever did.
G                  D
Kills like nothing ever could.
G
Dark and jaded world I hated,
D
Everything I left behind.
G
I don't need you, and I don't want you,
D
World that left me blind.

D                               G
Beneath the sands of the mighty Sahara lies,
A                               D
Buried treasure sunken deep, in darkened tombs where dead men sleep.
D
Gold fills hands, or is it sand,
    G
The same that covers everything?
      A
Where cities stood, soon deserts found,
    D
Now sink beneath the swelling ground.

G                  D
Feels like nothing ever did.
G                  D
Kills like nothing ever could.
G
Dark and jaded world I hated,
D
Everything I left behind.
G
I don't need you, and I don't want you,
D
World that left me blind.

D    A A#     D       A A# A A#
This world is for the taking,
D    A A#     D    A A# A A#
This world is suffocating.

D       A A#    D   A A# A A#
Plastic bags of novacain,
     D A A# D        A A# A A#
Some PCP to kill the pain.
D       A A#    D          A A# A A#
Build a tomb to store your rust,
D          A A#     D       A A# A A#
Moth-eaten piles of blowing dust.

D                      G
Under the sands of the mighty Sahara,
         A                              D
Goes our hero bold, in seach of gold, a casket for a dying world.
D
Our hero stands, wealth in hand,
    G
The prize for his endeavors.
    A
The masses cheer, to hide their fears
     D
That no man lives forever.

G                  D
Feels like nothing ever did.
G                  D
Kills like nothing ever could.
G
Dark and jaded world I hated,
D
Everything I left behind.
G
I don't need you, and I don't want you,
D
World that left me blind.

This is a bit messed up.

First off, all the D's are actually Dminor's. The A's in the chorus *could* be replaced with A7's, but I don't think this is really necessary, I just like it a little better if doing it with the acoustic rather than electric guitar.

Also, the chorus is A/Dm/A/Dm/G/Dm/G/A.
