*Proving Ground*

Intro: [D] [Bm] [G] [D] (2x)

[D]                                      [Bm]
You attempt to board the train though the car is full of liars
[G]             [D]                 [A]
Recognize the tendency, you're the great compromiser
[D]                     [Bm]
Suppose sooner or later we're all just survivors
[G]                 [D]        
Prayer becomes the heart's lost words 
When you're too close to the fire

[A]                                      [Bm]
If you get a patch of ground, well, it's there you make your plan
[G]                         [E]
If you get a soapbox, it's there you take your stand
[A]                                   [Bm]
All the kingdoms that rise up, they collapse without a sound
           [G]              [D]          [F#m]             [Bm]   [A]
Yeah, the driving rain is cleansing, the driving rain is cleansing
     [G]              [D]             [A]               [D]
The driving rain is cleansing out here on this proving ground

[intro pattern again]

Well, I remember the summer, the shimmer and the laughter
We were lying to each other about what we were after
And I'll admit that judgement is too stern
When your dreams have all been buried 
And your bridges they're all burned


I hear that there are secrets; told that there are maps
Ah, but every one we've been privy to 
Has closed on us like a steel trap
It leaves you full and noble, those dreams you never lost 'em
It stays with you forever, long time after you're forgotten
