Em D C

Em Bm C

First Verse:

               Em                      D                       C
There's a lightning storm each and every night
               Em             Bm              C
Crashing inside you like motorbikes
       Em                  D          C
We toss and turn, sleep so loud
                 Em
Grind the teeth in our
Bm                 C                                  Em
Our empty mouths (are empty...)

Second Verse:

                Em           D           C
There's a forest fire burning bright
                 Em                      Bm          C
Spreading quickly towards our last rites
       Em                D                C
Nowhere to run, pointless to hide
              Em                         Bm                   C
Just lay there and scream, pretending to try
                     Em
Pretending...

Chorus:

                      C                              Em
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
D              C                        Em
Everyone learns faster on fire
D                          C             Em
Things took a turn, lost all desire
        D                   C              D
You live and you burn
        C                   Em 
You live and you burn

Third Verse:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/a/alkaline-trio/178163.html ]
        Em                           D            C
This impending doom is left deep inside
             Em                    Bm                      C
And it's haunting you each and every night
        Em                    D                  C
Like starving wolves    drowning sheep
       Em                  Bm                     C   
We close our eyes, pretending to sleep
                      Em
Descending...

Chorus:
   
                   C                              Em
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
D              C                        Em
Everyone learns faster on fire
D                          C             Em
Things took a turn, lost all desire
        D                   C              D
You live and you burn
        C                
You live and...

Bridge:

        Em7             G              Cadd9
Like hell we are anxiously waiting
        Em7               G           Cadd9
Like hell burning silently strong
         Em7            G                 Cadd9  D
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
                Cadd9                D
And somehow this hell is home

Chorus:

           C                              Em
As we burn, pretending to fight it
D              C                        Em
Everyone learns faster on fire
D                          C             Em
Things took a turn, lost all desire
        D                   C              D
You live and you burn
        C                
You live and...

Bridge:

        Em7             G              Cadd9
Like hell we are anxiously waiting
        Em7               G           Cadd9
Like hell burning silently strong
         Em7            G                 Cadd9  D
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
                Cadd9                D
And somehow this hell is home
          C                         D      Em
Right now, this hell is my home
