Em_____Eb______________________F
All these fools who tried to sermonize at my-

And all other places with those chords: It's actually

Eb7____________________________F
All these fools who tried to sermonize at my-

Same with the Eb at the end of every chorus (Just a simple middle of[...]). It should actually be Eb7

Aside from that this looks great. Also great job with the lyrics
"Sometimes it's hard to know what's real when you're not"

-Act V, "The Revival"

Ahh, okay. That chord was a little rough for me. Thanks!

Just so you know, the (but in place of pain or brace) is (but in place of pain or praise). Other than that great job with the lyrics and the tab!

The lyrics to Middle Ground go:

I've been called to testify
A hired gun who could abandon
All these fools who tried to sermonize this mind.
Misery is measured, scarred with the system
A cold and callous case of a calculated lie
But in place of pain or praise
Just leave me to the same mistakes
I always made or always make
I don't want love, but I don't need hate
Just a simple middle of the road
To keep my bearings straight.

I screamed on my soapbox for the motherhood
And I slaved for years just to be heard
Above the mess of masses and droning tones
But I can see reality is different than I'd hoped.

Leave me to the same mistakes
I always made or always make
I don't want love, but I don't need hate
Just a simple middle of the road
To keep me on the true and narrow
No noise, I'm better poised
To keep my bearings straight.

I don't care if you believe me
I'm still here but I've completely lost myself
Inside myself again.

Leave me to the same mistakes
I've always made and I'll always make
And I don't want love, but I don't need hate
Just a simple middle of the road
To keep me on the true and narrow
No noise, I'm better poised
To keep my bearings straight.
