Businessmen drink my blood
         GbmGbm chord                                 BmBm chord
Like the kids in art school said they would

All the kids have always known

That the emperor wears new clothes
       DD chord                          AA chord EE chord   
But to bow to down to them anyway
   GbmGbm chord                      BmBm chord
Is better than to be alone

Now you're knocking at my door
       GbmGbm chord                                BmBm chord
Saying please come out against the night
    DD chord                        AA chord EE chord   
But I would rather be alone
GbmGbm chord                          BmBm chord
Than pretend I feel alright


       DD chord                           AA chord EE chord   
If the businessmen drink my blood
         GbmGbm chord                                 BmBm chord
Like the kids in art school said they would
       DD chord                           AA chord EE chord   
Then I guess I'll just begin again

Now I'm ready to start

I would rather be wrong
     EE chord                      DD chord
Than live in the shadows of your song

My mind is open wide

To step out into the dark
EE chord   
Now I'm ready
