Intro -x4-: Abm  Dbm  Ebm
 
Verse 1:
Abm               Dbm
I'm not a bad guy
   Ebm                   Abm                       Dbm Ebm
So don't treat me bad if I'm feeling sad, alright?
                       Abm                          Dbm
Please don't be mad if I don't smile back, alright?
     Ebm                     Abm                        Dbm
If I xxxx up my words, don't think I'm absurd, alright?
Ebm
Alright?
 
Pre-Chorus:
Abm
I'm physically exhausted
Ebm         Dbm
Tired of my knuckles piercing
Abm                          Ebm
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
         Dbm
Sadness, can't you see it?
Abm                     Ebm
You're too busy seeking selfish wishes
Dbm
Look at how I'm feeling
Abm                          Dbm
You write me up and say it's love
      -nc-
And I can't believe it
 
Chorus:
Abm                   Dbm
Baby, can you meet me tonight in detention?
Abm                            Dbm
I can feel your blood pressure rise, xxxx this tension
Abm                       Dbm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Abm                        Dbm
Pretending everything's alright is detention
 
Post-Chorus:
Abm
De-detention
Dbm
De-detention
Abm                         -nc-
Pretending everything's all right is -Shh!-
 
Verse 2:
Abm                              Dbm Ebm
The teachers don't care about me
                    Abm                  Dbm Ebm
xxxx how I feel, as long as I make money
Abm                            Dbm     Ebm
They let them do whatever they want to me
            Abm                        Dbm
They're the customer, I'm chopped meat
            Ebm
I'm chopped meat
 
Pre-Chorus:
Abm
I'm physically exhausted
Ebm         Dbm
Tired of my knuckles piercing
Abm                          Ebm
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
         Dbm
Sadness, can't you see it?
Abm                     Ebm
You're too busy seeking selfish wishes
Dbm
Look at how I'm feeling
Abm                          Dbm
You write me up and say it's love
      -nc-
And I can't believe it
 
Chorus:
Abm                   Dbm
Baby, can you meet me tonight in detention?
Abm                            Dbm
I can feel your blood pressure rise, xxxx this tension
Abm                       Dbm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Abm                        Dbm
Pretending everything's alright is detention
 
Post-Chorus:
Abm
De-detention
Dbm
De-detention
Abm                         -nc-
Pretending everything's all right is -Shh!-
 
Bridge:
Abm                           Dbm
I wanna go home and you say, "Now is not the time"
Abm                                 Dbm
xxxx being all alone in back of the classroom, ah
Abm                                          Dbm
Stop calling up my phone, trying to say that I've been out of line
Abm                                    Dbm
When all I ever asked was to go to the bathroom
 
Interlude -x2-: Abm  Dbm  Ebm

Abm                   Dbm
Baby, can you meet me tonight in detention?
Abm                            Dbm
I can feel your blood pressure rise, xxxx this tension
Abm                       Dbm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Abm                        Dbm                Abm
Pretending everything's alright is detention
 
Outro:
   Dbm  Ebm
Tonight
Abm                                 Dbm Ebm
I can feel your blood pressure rise
Abm                       Dbm  Ebm
Let me crawl up into your mind
Abm                              -nc-
Pretending everything's alright -is detention!-

Jada Sanaa

what strumming pattern did you use ?

Ingrid

I used DDUUDU but idk

Kaitlyn

I have a plucking pattwrn for the intro. If you wanna know its (transposed +1l

On Em pluck all the strings twice, then with em still play the strings c-a-c

Then with a play the c string then pluck the bottom two strings together twice

Then with b flat i think its a b chord play c-e-a-e
Then repeat for the rest of the intro

Then play dudu slowly and kinda dramatically for the rest of the song

It’s not knuckles piercing it’s knuckles beating.
