Intro: 
A E/G# F#m E D  A/C# D  x2
F#m  E  D  A/C# D  A/C# D  E 


Verse 1:
     A      E/G#
When was it that you 
F#m       E        D     A/C# D
lost your youth or traded
       A         E/G#
It for something more
    F#m     E      D    A/C# D
for them to use so jaded
    F#m
Why is it that you 
             E
never said I love you
more than just a friend
  D
I pray this gridlock
A/C# D       A/C# D
ne---ver ends      And when
             E
we get there just depends
A           E/G#  F#m
I found out recently 
     E       D      A/C# D
that you are leaving
    A      E/G#
For good I hope I 
F#m    E       D      A/C# D
softly tell my ceiling
     F#m
It's better now to be alive
 E
Sleeping is my 9 to 5
    D           
I'm having nightmares 
A/C# D       A/C# D
all  the time
Of running out of 
E
words that rhyme


Chorus:
A
Everything that 
you could never
E
say Would never 
          F#m
matter anyway
I took a hammer and two 
D           E
nails to my eardrums long
 A
ago Before that steak 
              E
knife took my eyes
                    F#m
I looked up to the sky
For the last thing
        D
I would ever see For
E
the last time I'd cry


Post Chorus:
A E/G# F#m E D  A/C# D  x2
F#m  E  D  A/C# D  A/C# D  E 


Verse 2:
     A      E/G#
When was it that you 
F#m       E       D     A/C# D
sold your life or wasted
      A       E/G#
Every bite of that small
 F#m      E     D     A/C# D
slice you never tasted
  F#m
I guess I should
be one to talk
        E
There's nights that
I can't even walk
        D
There's days I 
         A/C# D     A/C# D
couldn't give a fuck
And in between is
E
where I'm stuck From 
A       E/G#  F#m
blocks away I heard
    E     D       A/C# D
somebody screaming
           A       E/G#
That small child inside 
   F#m      E
of you that you left
D       A/C# D     F#m
bleeding      You stabbed
him up not once but twice
E
Cubicles will now suffice
     D
Some say it's the 
     A/C# D       A/C# D
roll of   the dice
I think they're wrong
  E
I know I'm right


(Repeat Chorus)


Interlude:
A E/G# F#m E D  A/C# D  x2


Outro:
   A
In case you're wondering
           D
I'm singing about growing 
  E
up about giving in
   A
In case you're wondering
           D
I'm singing about growing 
  E
up about giving in
   A
In case you're wondering
           D
I'm singing about growing 
  E
up about giving in
   A
In case you're wondering
           D
I'm singing about growing 
  E             D
up about giving up
            A(hold)
and kneeling
