Intro -x2-: Em G C Am

Verse:
     Em               G      
They send me away to find them a fortune
   C                              Am
a chest filled with diamonds and gold
    Em
The house was awake
       G
With shadows and monsters
      C                        Am
The hallways they echoed and groaned


Em               G
I sat alone, in bed 'til the morning
      C                         Am
I'm crying, "They're coming for me"
    Em                     G
And I tried to hold these secrets inside me
    C                      Am
My mind's like a deadly disease

Chorus:
                   Em    G 
I'm bigger than my body     
                    C     Am  
I'm colder than this home   
                    Em    G  
I'm meaner than my demons       
                     C     Am  
I'm bigger than these bones    

             Em
And all the kids cried out,
         G
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
C                 Am
I can't help this awful energy
Em                   G
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
C             Am
Who is in control?

Verse:
Em                  G
I paced around for hours, I'm empty
   C                          Am
I jumped at the slightest of sounds
    Em                    G
And I couldn't stand the person inside me
   C                       Am
I turned all the mirrors around

Chorus:
                   Em    G 
I'm bigger than my body     
                    C     Am  
I'm colder than this home   
                    Em    G  
I'm meaner than my demons       
                     C     Am  
I'm bigger than these bones    


             Em
And all the kids cried out,
         G
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
C                 Am
I can't help this awful energy
Em                   G
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
C             Am
Who is in control?

Verse:
Em
I'm well acquainted
      G                        C    Am
With villains that live in my bed
     Em
They beg me to write them
    G                          C    Am
So they'll never die when I'm dead


    Em
And I've grown familiar
      G                        C    Am
With villains that live in my head
     G
They beg me to write them
    G                        C    Am
So I'll never die when I'm dead

Chorus:
                   Em    G 
I'm bigger than my body     
                    C     Am  
I'm colder than this home   
                    Em    G  
I'm meaner than my demons       
                     C     Am  
I'm bigger than these bones    


             Em
And all the kids cried out,
         G
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
C                 Am
I can't help this awful energy
Em                   G
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
C              Am
Who is in control?

  1. I recommend using a capo, and putting it on the 2nd fret. It makes it a little higher but to me it sounds right.

  3. Wow,that was much easier than expected. Great for a beginner like myself. But I’m really confused on the strumming pattern…

    • Try using DD,UU,DU or on the chorus I tried the same strum pattern but muting the stings after The first down strum

  4. Abbydabbydoo2903

    Love this song thank you!

  5. The chords seem a little too high…it just doesn’t sound right as it is. I’m also a bit confused on the strumming pattern as well…..

  6. the final verse is supposed to be played twice and then the outro.

  7. Dynamiqueen
