Dbm
I'm physically exhausted

Tired of my knuckles piercing
Dbm                          Abm
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
         Gbm
Sadness, can't you see it?
Dbm                     Abm
You're too busy seeking selfish wishes
Gbm
Look at how I'm feeling
Dbm                          Gbm
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
Dbm                       Gbm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?

Pretending everything's alright is detention

Dbm
De-detention

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

I'm chopped meat

Bridge:
Dbm                           Gbm
I wanna go home and you say, "Now is not the time"
Dbm                                 Gbm
xxxx being all alone in back of the classroom, ah
Dbm                                          Gbm
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
