Intro:
    CC chord EmEm chord
    EmEm chord CC chord
 
 
Verse:
EmEm chord
I wake up fine and dandy but then by the time I find it handy,
To rip my heart apart and start planning my crash landing,
CC chord
I go up, up, up, up, up to the ceiling,
Then I feel my soul start leaving, like an old man's hair receding,
EmEm chord
I'm pleading please, oh please on my knees repeatedly asking,
Why it's got to be like this, is this living free,
CC chord
I don't want to be the one, be the one who has the son's blood on my hands,
I'll tell the moon, take this weapon forged in darkness,
Some see a pen, I see a harpoon.
 
Pre-Chorus: -EmEm chord- GG chord

I'll stay awake, 'cause the dark's not taking prisoners tonight.
GG chord
Why am I not scared in the morning,
             BmBm chord               EmEm chord
I don't hear those voices calling,
                         AmAm chord
I must have kicked them out,
  DD chord
I must have kicked them out,
GG chord
I swear I heard demons yelling,
             BmBm chord                  EmEm chord
Those crazy words they were spelling,
                    AmAm chord
They told me I was gone,
  DD chord                     GG chord
They told me I was gone.
 
Chorus:

GG chord    CC chord                GG chord
Why won't you let me go?
DD chord              GG chord         CC chord
Do I threaten all your plans?
    BmBm chord       DD chord
I'm insignificant.

Please tell them you have no plans for me.
  DD chord            GG chord        CC chord    BmBm chord           DD chord
I will set my soul on fire, what have I become?
               EmEm chord
I'll tell them!
 
Interlude: EmEm chord CC chord 
 
Verse:
EmEm chord
On the eve of a day that's forgotten and fake,
As the trees they await and clouds anticipate,
The start of a day when we put on our face,
a mask that portrays that we don't need grace,
CC chord
On the eve of a day that is bigger than us,
But we open our eyes 'cause we're told that we must,
And the trees wave their arms and the clouds try to plead,
Desperately yelling there's something we need,
EmEm chord
I'm not free, I asked forgiveness three times,
Same amount that I denied, I three-time mvp'ed this crime,
CC chord
I'm afraid to tell you who I adore, won't tell you what I'm singing towards,
                                                           EmEm chord
Metaphorically I'm a whore, and that's denial number four.
