Intro:
    | Em     D     |   G    -   |  Csus2  |  C      |

Verse:
Em     D        G
Send away for a priceless gift
Csus2           C    
One not subtle, One not on the list.
Em     D        G
Send away for a perfect world
Csus2         C    
One not simply so absurd.
Em      D         G
In these times of doing what you're told
Csus2              C    
Keep these feelings, no one knows.
Am                       Em
Whatever happened to the young man's heart.
Am                       G      D   Em
Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart.

Chorus:
Em                                   D
And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45
C                             D
Swimming through the ashes of another life.
Em                               D
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
C                            Am
Staring down the barrel of a 45.

Interlude:
    | Em     D     |   G    -   |  Csus2  |  C      |

Verse:
Em     D        G
Send a message to the unborn child
Csus2           C    
Keep your eyes open for a while
Em     D        G
In a box high up on the shelf
Csus2         C    
Left for you no one else
Em      D         G
There's a piece of a puzzle known as life
Csus2              C    
Wrapped in guilt, sealed up tight
Am                       Em
Whatever happened to the young man's heart.
Am                       G      D   Em
Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart.

Chorus:
Em                                   D
And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45
C                             D
Swimming through the ashes of another life.
Em                               D
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
C                            Am
Staring down the barrel of a 45.

Bridge:
           Bm                    C
Everyone's pointing their fingers
       Bm            C
Always condemning me
 Bm
Nobody knows what
  Em   D       G
I believe
  Csus2    C    
I believe

Chorus - x2 -:
Em                                   D
And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45
C                             D
Swimming through the ashes of another life.
Em                               D
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
C                            Am
Staring down the barrel of a 45.
