Paralytic States (acoustic) by Against Me!

A couple of notes:

- This is how Laura plays the song at acoustic shows. The LP version is slightly 
different (there's leads, a key change, etc).

- Also, G#m * denotes something like this:
   ---------
   ---------
   ---------
   -6-5-6-5-
   -6-6-6-6-
   -4-3-4-3-

That said, here's the song:

B
She could hear them fucking through
Those thin hotel walls
          E
She heard babies crying,
She heard laughter, she heard sirens
B
Red and blue lights flashing
Through those cheap hotel drapes
      E
Blood spilled out on the porcelain
    F#m
The bath tub's over-flowing


E         F#m
Paralytic states of dependency
B          G#m
All waking life's just a living dream
E        F#m
Agitated states of amazement
B                              G#m *
Never quite the woman that she wanted to be
B                              G#m *
Never quite the woman that she wanted to be


B
Spread out faced down on those
Stained cheap hotel sheets
              E
She spent the last years of her life
Running from the boy she used to be
B
Cut her face wide open
Shaved the bone down thin
            E
Plumped her lips up exaggerated
         F#m
A fucked up kind of feminine


E         F#m
Paralytic states of dependency
B          G#m
All waking life's just a living dream
E        F#m
Agitated states of amazement
B                              G#m *
Never quite the woman that she wanted to be
B                              G#m *
Never quite the woman that she wanted to be


B
Night time at the hotel there was fighting in the hall
           E
Thin chain lock to keep the world out
She held her breath till it was gone
B
Standing naked in front of that hotel bathroom mirror
          E
In her dysphoria's reflection
          F#m
She still saw her mother's son


E         F#m
Paralytic states of dependency
B          G#m
All waking life's just a living dream
E        F#m
Agitated states of amazement
B                              G#m *
Never quite the woman that she wanted to be
B                              G#m *
Never quite the woman that she wanted to be


E               F#m                 E       F#m
By the time the ball dropped it was already over
E               F#m                 E       F#m
By the time the ball dropped it was already over
E                      F#m                  B
No resolutions for the new year beginning tomorrow
