Intro -x2-: Em D B C

Verse 1:
           Em                 D
Mr. Doctor Man Questions his hands
         B                        C
Lost his mind but he's clinically fine
               Em                  D
Found a way to cope needle in his throat
        B                              C
Falling down but the world is spinning round and round he knows

Pre-Chorus 1:
Em
Up down but the world keeps spinning round and round 
Am
I see this place ain't big enough for me
C                     B
I want you to take me away way, way, way
Em
Up down but the world keeps spinning round and round 
Am
I see this place ain't big enough for me
C                     B  
I want you to take me away way, way, way

What did you want to say?

Chorus:
Em                                 C
Chemically it's running through my veins you see? 
               Am
Romance of the plastic scenes
                B
I can't see you breathe

They're coming after me
Em                               C
Honestly it's running through my veins you see 
                   Am
I don't need their surgeries
               B
I just want to be

But they are coming after me

Interlude: E D B C -x2-

Verse 2:
                  Em                 D
There is a little story I'd like to tell
                  B                 C
About this little boy who came from hell
          Em                     D
Sit right there and listen real good
                     B                 C
Ill tell you all the ways he's misunderstood

Pre-Chorus 2:
Em
I see you standing there 
Am
With that wicked stare 
C
Just stay for the show
B
Are you ready now are you ready to go

Chorus:
Em                                 C
Chemically it's running through my veins you see? 
               Am
Romance of the plastic scenes
                B
I can't see you breathe

They're coming after me
Em                               C
Honestly it's running through my veins you see 
                   Am
I don't need their surgeries
               B
I just want to be

But they are coming after me

Verse 3:
Em            G                 A
   Mr. doctor man questions his hands
         B                         Em
Lost his mind, but he's clinically fine
                  G                    A
He found a way to cope - needle in his throat
        B                              Em
Falling down but his world is spinning round

Interlude: Em Am C B

Bridge:
Em                     Am
Stuck in the boom boom room
C                  B   
People are dancing after their operation
Em            Am
I want you to move
    C                B
But nobody is moving after their medication 
Em               Am
I can't hear the room
C                  B
People are dancing after their operation
Em            Am
I want you to move
    C                B
But nobody is moving at all

-Pause-

Chorus:
Em                                 C
Chemically it's running through my veins you see? 
               Am
Romance of the plastic scenes
                B
I can't see you breathe

They're coming after me
Em                               C
Honestly it's running through my veins you see 
                   Am
I don't need their surgeries
               B
I just want to be

But they are coming after me

  1. This sounds so good and is pretty easy although I think it sounds better at -2 it just sounds closer to the original a is probably better for beginners. Much love

  2. I’ve been waiting for this, I’m so happy to learn a Palaye Royale song :)
