Em
Put on your war paint


Em
You are a brick tied to me that's dragging me down
Em
Strike a match and I'll burn you to the ground
Em
We are the jack-o-lanterns in July

Setting fire to the sky
Em
Here, here comes this rising tide

So come on


Em
Put on your war paint


Em
Cross walks and crossed hearts and hope-to-dies

Silver clouds with grey linings


Em                                     G       D
So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
Em                             G      D
One maniac at a time we will take it back
Em                                     G          D 
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to 
Em                   G                         D D
Start so dance along to the beat of your heart


          Em
Hey young blood
           C
Doesn't it feel
         Db              C   
Like our time is running out
   D     Em                  C
I'm gonna change you like a remix
           Db                C     
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
     D             Em          C
You're wearing our vintage misery
                 Db                      C
No, I think it looked a little better on me
   D      Em                   C
I'm gonna change you like a remix
           Db                   C -once-
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix


Em
Bring home the boys and scrap scrap metal the tanks
Em
Get hitched and make a career out of robbing banks
Em
Because the world is just a teller and

We are wearing black masks
Em
"You broke our spirit," says the note we pass


Em                                     G       D
So we can take the world back from the heart-attacked
Em                             G      D
One maniac at a time we will take it back
Em                                     G          D 
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to 
Em                   G                         D D
Start so dance along to the beat of your heart


          Em
Hey young blood
           C
Doesn't it feel
         Db              C   
Like our time is running out

I'm gonna change you like a remix
           Db                C     
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
     D             Em          C

  1. Chorus works best with eminor, c, a7 then (play a c but move a fret higher (towards your thumb high))

  2. Hublapha

    With the chorus, I also found that Em, C, G, D work pretty well.

  3. sprinkleofoliver

    i think for the chorus, it sounds better as Em, C, Am, D

  4. twenty one fedoras

    -2 and +5 are a lot easier

  5. I think an A7 sounds better than a Db in the chorus
