The Evil - Chords and Lyrics



  • I couldn’t find any visual confirmation of these chords online so I’ll have to play close attention next time I see it live. Until then, this is what I hear.

    Emaj7 (4-7-6-4-4-4)
    Emaj7 (0-7-6-4-4-4) During “the evil” get the low E to drone
    Dbm (x-4-6-6-5-4)
    Dbsus2 (x-4-6-6-4-4)
    Open E (0-2-2-1-0-0)
    A (x-0-2-2-2-0)
    B (x-2-4-4-4-2)
    Eb (x-6-8-8-8-6)

    Intro and all Verses are alternating Emaj7 to Dbm

    A tingle, a thought in my bed
    Satisfied my nose into my head
    And memories and hearts fade
    Sabotage, it never fails
    So can we hold on to lies
    and complications gone unsolved
    Can we believe what we’re told
    Though many things behold

             Emaj7 (with low E drone)
    The evil, the evil, the evil
                              Dbm   Dbsus2 (pick up the 2nd finger)
    that’s running through my head
    Emaj7                                  Dbm   Dbsus2
    Oh here we go, It’s running through my head
                         Emaj7  
    What are we fighting for?
    

    ‘Cause I am willing to change
    Throw all my eggs in one basket
    And one by one escape life as we know it
    The stories strangers say stay the same
    So can we force songs
    Should I care if they belong
    Could I declare victory won
    Everyday, every sight perform for whose delight
    To become the greatest band in all the land

                    Emaj7 (with low E drone)
    Through all the evil, the evil, the evil
                              Dbm  Dbsus2 (pick up the 2nd finger)
    that’s running through my head
    Emaj7                                  Dbm  Dbsus2  B
    Oh here we go, It’s running through my head
    
               A
    ‘Cause I’m standing at the bottom
            B                             Dbm
    Looking up I tilt my head back here we go
                    Eb                                A
    Through all the many things to come I’m love struck
                   B
    Don’t let it die, and if you realize
         E            B     Dbm
    Just please don’t tell no one
    A         B (build up) 
    I’ve been waiting
    
     B            E (open)      A   
    ‘Cause we are stars, We are stars
                E              A
    And hold it bright, We are stars
                  E             A   
    ‘Cause we are stars, We are stars
                   E             A
    Illuminate the night, We are stars 
    

    Jam out over alternating E to A
