Intro: E 
 
Verse 1:
E                  B                   E                    A
 This is for the lions living in the wiry broke down frames of my friends' bodies
E                      B                          E                    A
 When the floodwater comes, it ain't gonna be clear, it's gonna look like mud
    Dbm     A           Dbm A Dbm     A           Dbm          A           E
But I  will help you swim,    I  will help you swim, I'm gonna help you swim
 
Verse 2:
E                   B                         E
 This is for the snakes and the people they bite
                       A                         E
For the friends I've made, for the sleepless nights
                   B                       E
For the warning signs  I've completely ignored
                       A                     Dbm
There's an amount to take, reasons to take more 
 
Pre-Chorus:
     A         Dbm       A               Dbm
It's no big surprise you turned out this way
     A                 Dbm      A                   Dbm
When they closed their eyes and prayed you would change
    A             Dbm       A           Dbm
And they cut your hair, and sent you away  
    A             Dbm       A             Dbm
You stopped by my house the night you escaped
     A           Dbm     A                Dbm
With tears in my eyes, I begged you to stay  
         A           Dbm           A
You said "Hey man, I love you, but no xxxxing..."
 
Chorus:
    E                    Abm                 A            Gbm
I'm sure that we could find something for you to do on stage 
         E            Abm                    A             Gbm
Maybe shake a tambourine, or when I sing, you sing harmonies

Verse 3:
E                  B                          E
 This is for the lake  that me and my friends swim in
            A                   E
Naked and dumb on a drunken night
                         B                             E
And it should've felt good,  but I could hear the Jaws theme song
        A
On repeat in the back of my...
 
Pre-Chorus:
     Dbm          A          Dbm       A      Dbm      A
Make sure you kiss your knuckles before you punch me in the face
Dbm             A             Dbm     A
   There are lessons to be learned Con
     Dbm         A       Dbm       A    Dbm
sequences for all the stupid things I say  
          A            Dbm    A               Dbm
And it is no big surprise you turned out this way
    A                Dbm    A              Dbm   A
The spark in your eyes, the look on your face, I will not...
 
Chorus:
    E                    Abm                 A            Gbm
I'm sure that we could find something for you to do on stage 
         E            Abm                    A             Gbm
Maybe shake a tambourine, or when I sing, you sing harmonies  
 
Post-Chorus:
              E              Abm
I wanna contribute to the chaos 
                A                   Gbm
I don't wanna watch and then complain  
            E                  Abm
'Cause I am through finding blame 
              A                  Gbm
That is a decision that I have made

   A E Dbm

A             E
 She hopes I'm cursed forever
             Dbm          A
To sleep on a   twinsized mattress
       E                              Dbm A
In somebody's attic or basement my whole life
     E                   Dbm          A
Never graduating up in size to add another
           E                                     Dbm
And my nightmares will have nightmares every night  
              A              E Dbm A E Dbm A E Dbm A E Dbm A
Oh, every night, every night.
