Intro:
    B E B Gb  -x2-
    B E Abm Gb  -x2-


B
Nobody thinks what I think,

Nobody dreams when they blink
                    E
Think things on the brink of blasphemy

I'm my own shrink
      
Think things are after me, my catastrophe
Abm                                  
I'm a kitchen sink, you don't know what that means
          Gb
Because a kitchen sink to you
         
Is not a kitchen sink to me, OK friend?
B
Are you searching for purpose?

Then write something, yeah it might be worthless
E
Then paint something then, it might be wordless

Pointless curses, nonsense Verses
Abm
You'll see purpose start to surface

No one else is dealing with your demons
Gb
Meaning maybe defeating them
      
Could be the beginning of your meaning, friend.


Dbm      Ebm     Abm     Gb       Dbm
  Go away, go away, go away, go away
-Dbm-          Ebm           Abm            Gb             
  Leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone, 
            B  E Abm Gb  
leave me alone         -leave me alone-


B                                 
Nobody thinks what you think, no one
                                       E
Empathy might be on the brink of extinction

They will play a game and say

They know what you're going through

And I tried to come up with an artistic way to say
Abm
They don't know you, and neither do I
   
So here's a prime example of a stand up guy
    Gb
Who hates what he believes and loves it at the same time
          
Here's my brother and his head's screwed up

But that's alright.


B
Time gains momentum the moment when I'm living in 'em
                                                 B
I'm winning a momentary sinning a moment passing after

a re-beginning moments mending memories
                                                                  E
Pretending enemies are friend of me, sending me straight to bending me
                                                      
My bad behavior but I bet I could have been a better man
                                   Abm
Copy and paste caught me, and copy, better rhymes bother me
                                                            Gb
The better the rhythm the badder I am but I bet I'll battle with 'em battle
             
better I am, Gambling man, better bet I am a gambling man, I am?


Dbm      Ebm     Abm     Gb       Dbm
  Go away, go away, go away, go away
-Dbm-          Ebm           Abm            Gb                Abm       
  Leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone
-Abm-E B Gb          Abm E B Gb                  Abm E B Gb
          Leave me alone,     don't leave me alone
Abm E B Gb 
ooooooooooooh -x5-

  1. Panic! At The Twenty Øne Fall Øut Chemical Rømance

    I can’t even speak Zach’s rap slowly like how do you expect me to say it fast….

  2. ProbablyPanickingAtADiscoSomewhere

    personally, -6 is easiest for me and my vocal range! it has super easy chords <3 have a great day!

  3. Twenty Two Captains

    For the first time.

    I did.

    Zach’s Rap.

    Correct.

    Without messing up.

    • MyPrettyWeeper

      ALL HAIL TWENTY TWO CAPTAINS! I’m working on learning Zach’s part, but I haven’t quite got it down yet. Wish me luck, and stay alive, frens.

      • MyPrettyWeeper

        UPDATE–I MASTERED ZACH’S RAP AND I FEEL LIKE I HAVE CONQUERED THE UNIVERSE. |-/

    • Antisocial Yeemo

      ALL PRAISE RAP G O D S “TWENTY TWO CAPTAINS” AND “MY PRETTY WEEPER”

  4. The Grandpa Taken Away by the Pantaloon

    I could just be the weird one here, but I think Dbm is completely off. The rest of the chords in the chorus sound amazing, but that one is bothering me. Does anyone else feel this way, or have a substitute.

  5. Taylor Josephine

    Loves this song! Can never get Zach’s rap tho! Btw -1 is easier |-/ ~{°-°}~

  6. Confusedpatternsuknow

    Strumming pattern?

    • Ashleigh |-/

      For the beginning, before he sings, the pattern is probably: D, D,DUD, D, DU. (The commas represent a longer pause.)

  7. Sp00ky Jim Christmas

    Something I like to do at the end~
    C chord
    A:5-7-10- -12-10-5
    C chord

  8. In a video where he talks about the song he says, “At my kitchen sink” and he explains it

  9. A kitchen sink is something with purpose

  10. Every lyric video and if you search up lyrics for it its “I’m a kitchen sink”. Everyone knows what “I’m at my kitchen sink” means but “I’m a kitchen sink” no one knows what that means except Tyler. It makes more sense than “at my kitchen sink “. OR It’s A MANDELLA EFFECT !!!

  11. TaxiCabHometown

    AT MY KITCHEN SINK. In all of the lyric videos its I’m a kitchen sink but it’s at my and that’s aggravating me. It’s like the lyrics in Johnny boy on here. It’s he’s falling in love!!!!! Okay I’m done.

  12. you guys in an interview tyler himself talks about this very line and talks about what it means to him. the point is that he says “I’m a kitchen sink.” can’t question the songwriter now can you? anyways i love this song a lot whatever the line may be, and whoever made the tab did an amazing job.

    • he actually does say “at my” its just hard to understand. He does say that the song is about something that happened to him at the kitchen sink, so….

  13. +1 and pick it (4,2,3,1)
    it works for me

  14. piercethebrooke

    i love this song, i like to play it in +1 because its easy for me. i learned how to rap Zach’s part, and its super hard, especially the “but i bet ill battle with em battle better i am” part.

  15. abi._.tryner

    I’m pretty sure it’s meant to be ‘IM’ a kitchen sink ??

  16. DelaneyIsAlone

    I agree with Beep beep bitches !
    Whoever made this is AMAZING AND THEY DID A AMAZING JOB!

  17. LovelyMs.Migraine

    This may sound wierd but the stumming pattern i found to work best was DU DU DU DU

  18. *cant think øf anything nøw*

    Hi

  19. Beep beep bitches

    IT DOESNT MATTER THAT IT SAID IM A KITCHEN SINK. IT SOUNDS LIKE HE SAYS IM. SO PLEASE STOP. THE PERSON WHO MADE THIS TAB DID A GREAT JOB SO STOP HARPING ON THEM.

    • helpingggg

      we’re not “harping” on them (or whatever you’re trying to say). calm down. but…there’s a huge change in meaning from “i’m a kitchen sink” to “at my kitchen sink” and we’re just trying to preserve the actual message. plus, we’re also hardcore grammar nazis. ?

      • So every one I would like to point out he says in the song I’m a kitchen sink because of… he is always dripping (or writing songs and trying to make every one around him happy) but all this water goes to a waste down the drain he says you don’t know what I mean because he has probably dealt with family and friends troubles but at the same time trying to make new songs for his fans and etc. now I don’t like conflict especially on an awesome ukulele learning site but I just wanted to point out that

        WE DA CLIQUE WE CAN’T FIGHT WE GOTTA STICK TOGETHER |-/ |-/ |-/

    • this hiatus is ruining us
