Intro: G Em G C

              G                 Em
Some people watch, some people pray
           G              C
But even lights can fade away
             G                 Em
Some people hope, some people pay
     C              G    C
But why we have to stay


            G                     Em
Cause even here, we're scared to bruise
         G          C
Or any misery you choose
              G               Em
You like to watch, we like to use
    C                G     C
And we were born to lose


          Am             D
I choose defeat, I walk away
                 G             Em
And leave this place for sane today
              Am                D    
Some like to sleep, we like to play
                       G     C   
Just look at all that pain


               G              Em
You want the heart and to be saved
          G                   C
But even good guys still get paid
               G                  Em
So watch your back and keep the blade
                     G    C
I think it got you laid


               G                  Em
So fake your death, oh it's your blame
                G                 C
And leave the lights on when you stay
                G                    Em
Take off your clothes and dream and fade
                        G     C
Come on and feel that shame


           Am            D
I choose defeat, I walk away
                 G             Em
And leave this place for sane today
             Am               D
We like to sleep, we like to play
                       G     C
Just look at all that pain


                       G     C
Just look at all that pain


                       G     Em
Just look at all that pain
                       G     Em
Just look at all that pain
                       G     C
Just give me all that pain
                       G     C
Just give me all that pain
                       G     C
Just give me all that pain


           Am            D
I choose defeat, I walk away
                 G             Em
And leave this place for sane today
              Am                D
Some like to sleep, we like to play
                       G
Just look at all that pain

    *cries in idea*

  2. I do my strumming a little different I strum once when the chord is shown out and let the note draw though until the next I do this until “look at all that pain” and then that’s when i do the actual strumming pattern.

  3. Aaaaaa this is one of my fave songs can someone do S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W pls

  4. the CORRECT lyrics, for anyone who wants them:
    [Verse 1]
    Some people watch
    Some people pray
    But even lights can fade away
    Some people hope
    Some people pay
    But why we have to stay

    [Pre-Chorus 1]
    Cause even heroes get the blues
    Or any misery you choose
    You like to watch
    We like to use
    And we were born to lose

    [Chorus]
    I choose defeat
    I walk away
    And leave this place
    The same today
    Some like to sleep
    We like to play
    Just look at all that pain

    [Verse 3]
    You want the heart
    Or to be saved
    But even good guys still get paid
    So watch my back
    And keep the blade
    I think it got you laid

    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    So fake your death
    Or it’s your blame
    And leave the lights on when you stay
    Take off your clothes
    And dream that fame
    Come on and feel that shame

    [Chorus]
    I choose defeat
    I walk away
    And leave this place
    The same today
    Some like to sleep
    We like to play
    Just look at all that pain
    Just look at all that pain

    [Bridge]
    Just look at all that pain
    Just look at all that pain
    Just give me all that pain
    Just give me all that pain
    Just give me all that pain

    [Chorus]
    I choose defeat
    I walk away
    And leave this place
    The same today
    Some like to sleep
    We like to play
    Just look at all that pain

  5. I love this song sm. Thanks

  6. random band trash

    If you find switching to em difficult, just use c instead of em. I actually think it sounds better. (I also saw a comment here saying to use f instead of em, I tried that and I didn’t really like the sound so hopefully this can help if you share the same view as me)

  7. hipster120901

    I use the strumming pattern DDDUDU, when you play along with the song it works really well

  8. I like to use DDUDUDUD I think it sounds nice like that

  9. I use “D UDUD” strumming pattern for most of the song and it works pretty well with the composition of the song

  10. I recommend the ” D DUDUDU” strum pattern for this :)

  11. My chemical panic Pilots

    This is awesome, thank you for blessing is with the chords of the gods :)

  12. mychemicalmidnight

    played this song transposed +5 and found the chords much easier and the key easier to sing in for me, at least.

  13. If you play an F instead of Em it can work if you find it hard to swap to Em quick. I found it useful.It sounds okay with the song to me and it suites my voice a little better.

  14. Okay actually there are quite a few lyrical errors in this version, please consider revising them heavily as it somewhat messes up the meaning and delivery of the lines

  15. Also, they say watch my back, not watch your back

  16. Hi there! I love the chords, thanks so much for posting. The only thing is, in the second verse the line goes “even heroes get the blues” (he stretches out heroes quite a bit, so the mistake is totally understandable) but other than that it’s great
