Intro -x4-: B  Gb

 B                     Gb
I'm Takin over my body,back in control no more shotty
 B                          Gb
I Bet a lot of me was lost, T's uncrossed and I's undotted
 B                                       Gb
I Fought it a lot and it seems a lot like flesh is all I got
 B                 Gb
Not anymore, flesh out the door, Swat!

 B                   Gb
I must've forgot, you can't trust me
I'm open a moment and closed when you show it
Next thing you know I'm lost at sea
 B                                             Gb
And now that I write and think about it, and the story unfolds
    B                                         Gb
You should take my life, you should take my soul

Abm     B           E       Gb
You are surrounding, all my surroundings 
Abm                B        E                 Gb        Abm
sounding cross the mountain range, of my left side brain
        B           E        Gb
You are surrounding, all my surroundings
Abm                 B
Twisting the kaleidoscope 
Behind both of my eyes.

Interlude -x4-: B  Gb

And I'll be Holdin on to you!

B                            Gb
Remember the moment you know exactly where you're going,
             B                            Gb
'Cause the next moment, before you know it,
Time is slowing and it's frozen still,
And the window sill looks really nice, right?
          B                                 Gb
You think twice about your life, it probably happens at night,
       B         Gb
Right? Fight it, take the pain, ignite it,
     B                             Gb
Tie a noose around your mind loose enough to breathe fine and tie it,
B                  Gb
To a tree, tell it, "You belong to me,
            B                Gb
This ain't a noose, this is a leash,
And I have news for you, you must obey me."

Abm     B           E       Gb
You are surrounding, all my surroundings 
Abm                B        E                 Gb        Abm
sounding cross the mountain range, of my left side brain
        B           E        Gb
You are surrounding, all my surroundings
Abm                 B
Twisting the kaleidoscope 
Behind both of my eyes.

Bridge -x10-:
Abm         E      Gb
Entertain my Faith

Abm                       E
Lean with it rock with it when we gonna stop with it
Lyrics that mean nothing we were gifted with thought
Abm                           E
Is it time to move our feet to an Introspective beat
It ain't the speakers that bump hearts it's the heart that makes the beat

Outro: B  Gb 

I'll be holdin on to you! -x5-

  1. EasyPeasyPumpkinPeasyPumpkinPieMotherfFluffer

    It Should Be “Sounding Down The Mountain Range” Instead Of ” Sounding Cross The Mountain Range”

  2. taco bell saga

    If you want to play it for the way tyler does the chord progression is am, g, f, c, and the strumming pattern is DD UDU, but mute the strings for the UDU in the verses if that makes sense im not sure how the chorus goes tho :)

    • Two things.
      One: I love your username
      Two: Transposing up a half step does exactly what you were talking about with the chords.

  3. MyNamesJasonStathemandidontcareiamacheetah

    “Next thing you know it” should be “Before you know it” Oof (I did research and stuff so…yeah be proud????????? i dont know lol)

  4. Layla Brodbeck

    Could you do G instead of Gm??

  5. wow! thank you so much, this helped a ton!

  6. asha.trenberth


  7. Linnea (jag)

    For an easier version that sounds better just do:
    Intro, verses, pre-chorus, break, bridge: Am, G, F, C
    Chorus: F, Am, C, G

  9. “shotty” should be “Shawty.” It’s a slang term for a girl, girlfriend, or crush (just if you didn’t know I didn’t know for the longest time) ;)

    • crybxbyparx

      in the offical lyric booklet it says shotty

    • Its definitely shotty, he’s talking about how he’s been ‘riding shotgun (shotty)’ in his mind for too long.

    • its actually shotty, its a different way to say “shotgun”
      in the context of the lyric he’s basically saying back in control no more shotgun
      because when you call the front seat of a car you say shotgun, but tyler doesn’t want shotgun anymore, he’s taking control of his mind/life again :)

    • it’s actually saying “shotty” as in “shotgun”
      he’s taking control again (the driver’s seat) and he refuses to sit in the front row seat of his life (shotgun/shotty)
      shotgun as in when kids call out “shotgun!” to get the front seat (which I didn’t know about til a couple years ago haha)
      hope I helped!

  10. actual satan

    +6 is easy

  11. Jishwa and tyjo

  12. I like cheese |-/

  13. KoreyPlaysLeUke

  14. DD UDU
