Verse: C#m, B, E, A, C#m, B, E (2 measures)
Bridge: A, B, C#m, Ebm
Chorus: E, B, A, B

Verse:
C#m                B
Feel, don't watch the mercury drop
E                             A
Things fell apart and then I turned and stopped and said
C#m         B                E
I can't go on anymore like this
Verse x2
Save me from the tired hums
The crooked stares of the broken ones
One by one, let's watch them all disappear
I used to climb up to the attic at night
I'd end up in the basement screaming    
I'm floating above all of you now

Bridge:
A             B           C#m   Ebm
It feels like now they've got me by the throat
Chorus:
E                 B
You make it sound so sincere
A                      A
I never believe what I always hear
Chorus: x3
I never thought I'd see the day
They've got me by the throat   
I'm force-fed all the answers
My paranoia spreads like cancer
I'm so far from all my problems now

C#m, B

E
So I packed what's left of me and I'm leaving
C#m                  B             E     
These city walls are closing in on me
Verse:
Take me back before it all began
Before I'd run and before I cared
Sometimes my best just isn't enough

Chorus: x4
You make it sound so sincere
I never believe what I always hear
I never thought I'd see the day
They've got me by the throat
I'm force-fed all the answers
My paranoia just spreads like cancer
I'm so far from all my problems now

Have washed out to sea and soon comes
The day that a hard rain falls on me
