All-american Rejects - The Poison chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is not in the original key. It's about an augmented fifth higher than the
recording, I believe, but it's still fairly easy to sing.

  G   G/f#  Em   C
e-3---3-----3----3-|
B-3---3-----3----3-|
G-0---0-----0----0-|
D-0---0-----2----2-|
A-2---0-----2----3-|
E-3---2-----0----0-|

            G
You were so young,
And I guess im old.
          C
Open your eyes,
Ill keep mine closed.
         G
I prefer standing,
And you take your seat.
       C
Ill be wide awake,
And you'll fall asleep.

CHORUS 1:
                Em   D       C
And you'll fall down----- a hole.
           Em     D          C
That's the one place we both know
             Em             D                     C
You take me with you if you could, but I wouldn't go
             Em                      C         D
I guess sometimes we both loose our minds, to find a better road.

[switch between G and C for a couple of bars]

         G
I can be pensive,
You can be so sure.
              C
You'll be the poison,
You'll be the cure.
                  G
I'm alone on the journey,
I'm alive none the less,
             C
And when you do your very worst,
Mmmmm it feels the best.

CHORUS 2:
                Em    D     C
And you'll fall down---- a hole.
            Em    D          C
That's the one place we both know.
            Em               D                    C
You take me with you if you could, but I wouldn't go.
            Em                       C           D
I guess sometimes we both loose our minds, and find a better road.

G x2

CHORUS 3:
                Em   D   C
And you'll fall down-- a hole.
           Em                D                  C
That's the one place in this world that we both know.

[I'm not really sure about this next part, so if you want you can skip right from CHORUS 
2 to CHORUS 4]

You take me with you if you could,
But if you could i'd lose everything.

Can't you see the faces melting as the sun rains from their eyes,
Go on and keep your head with the hearts that you left behind.
Look at yourself, look in the mirror, don't you see a lie?
That you tell yourself again a thousand times.
And the truth that makes us laugh will make you cry,
You wanna die? No?

CHORUS 4:
            {G   G/f#  Em}*   C              *switch these chords on the beat
So you fall down---------- a hole,
           G   G/f#   Em                 C
Thats the one place------ where we both know,
            G        G/f#     Em                   C
You take me with you  if  you could but I wouldn't go.
            Em                        C       D             G
Because sometimes, we both loose our minds to find a better road.
