Intro -x2-: F F G Am G

F
I ponder of something great
   F                           G
My lungs will fill and then deflate
     Am
They fill with fire

Exhale desire
   G
I know it's dire

My time today


F
I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence


F                  G
Sometimes quiet is violent
Am
I find it hard to hide it
    G
My pride is no longer inside
      F
It's on my sleeve

My skin will scream
    F
Reminding me of
         G       Am
Who I killed inside my dream
                      G
I hate this car that I'm driving
                       F
There's no hiding for me
                                  F
I'm forced to deal with what I feel
                         G               Am
There is no distraction to mask what is real
G
I could pull the steering wheel


F
I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence

Interlude -x4-: F F G Am G

F
I ponder of something terrifying
F                                    G
'Cause this time there's no sound to hide behind
Am
I find over the course of our human existence
G
One thing consists of consistence
F
And it's that we're all battling fear
     F                                       G
Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here
Am
Oh my,

Too deep

Please stop thinking
G
I liked it better when my car had sound


F
There are things we can do
               F                              G
But from the things that work there are only two
     Am
And from the two that we choose to do
G
Peace will win

And fear will lose
         F
There's faith and there's sleep
    F                       G
We need to pick one please because
Am
Faith is to be awake
            G
And to be awake is for us to think
                F
And for us to think is to be alive
            F
And I will try with every rhyme
     G     Am
To come across like I am dying
             G                       F
To let you know you need to try to think



I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence

Interlude -x4-: F F G Am G

F
I ponder of something great
   F                           G
My lungs will fill and then deflate
     Am
They fill with fire

Exhale desire
   G
I know it's dire

My time today


F
I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence

  1. i think best strumming, and the one that tyler uses is to use your thumb and pointer finger to pluck at the 1st and 4th string and after your thumb picks at the first string you strum it over the 2nd string and so on and so on during interludes and at the beginning of the song, and during the lyrics he uses the progression f, g, am over c, g. and when you do the picking/strumming patter theres a hammer on the f every 8 counts. so in all it would be
    hammer on f 8 count strum/pluck x2 . then g for 2 count, then am over c or 8 count, then g for an 8 count.
    that might sound complicated but if you watch the live at the edge video it might help you understand this easier.

    I dont play the last note and I think it sounds good. Idk tho

  3. For strumming I just pluck all the strings once per chord,, it’s super simple but it works for this song

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
