Ebm
I'm physically exhausted

Tired of my knuckles piercing
Ebm                          Bbm
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
         Abm
Sadness, can't you see it?
Ebm                     Bbm
You're too busy seeking selfish wishes
Abm
Look at how I'm feeling
Ebm                          Abm
You write me up and say it's love

And I can't believe it

I can feel your blood pressure rise, xxxx this tension
Ebm                       Abm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?

Pretending everything's alright is detention

xxxx how I feel, as long as I make money
Ebm                            Abm     Bbm
They let them do whatever they want to me
            Ebm                        Abm
They're the customer, I'm chopped meat

Bridge:
Ebm                           Abm
I wanna go home and you say, "Now is not the time"
Ebm                                 Abm
xxxx being all alone in back of the classroom, ah
Ebm                                          Abm
Stop calling up my phone, trying to say that I've been out of line

When all I ever asked was to go to the bathroom
