CAPO 5 F#m D The problem I have with the soul contraption A E Bm Swallowed up slowly like a bad reaction F#m D All around what you do and say A E Bm Well the symptom falls further away F#m D You live in silence but you can't describe it A E Bm So what's the point of talking at all? F#m D The store bought injury.. the family cane A E Bm Just another boy bad at the game F#m D A E Bm This is when you need a friend to keep you moving around F#m D 'Cause all your thinking has made you slow A E Bm You might be stopping out.. you know A F#m Frustrated fireworks inside your head F#m D There's a lit fuse smoking.. you caught instead A F#m What you're dealing.. but it's just a start F#m D Was a time since your problem was a poison dart A F#m And you act like a cowboy.. whatever's in my hat F#m D I'm a hardboiled hero and I'm not so bad A F#m But I didn't know when to run from this F#m D A proud fan is gonna see you shatter A E Bm I know that there really isn't anything the matter F#m D Nothing is gonna be crying words.. A E Bm They only want their voice to be heard F#m D They use it sometimes to show that they're around A E Bm Or they build you up a theory like the walls of a town F#m D A tired and ancient ruler right now.. A E Bm The neighborhood slaves are hardly skilled A F#m Open your parachute and drop your weight F#m D Float on down to the center and investigate A F#m I did my self requirement F#m D Better cop out hard or I'll leave right now A F#m 'Cause this feeling of loving I felt it in my chest F#m D Like the nighttime footsteps of an unknown guest A F#m I know it wasn't me.. I wasn't moving.. F#m D I felt thunder.. the rain was pouring A E Bm I know it must be something wrong all this is restoring F#m D You don't have to live in a life's mistake A E A Stay in the center and wait A E A Stay in the center and wait A E Bm Stay in the center and wait.
