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