Intro: D Bm G  x4

D      Bm         G            D           Bm          G
 Sometimes in my bed at night, I curse the dark and a pray for light
      D   Bm         G               D  Bm  G
And sometimes, the light's no, consolation 

D       Bm    G     D           Bm           G
Blinded by a memory, afraid of what it might do to me 
         D            Bm          G            D  Bm  G
And the tears and the sweat only mock my desperation

C                          D                                   C
Don't you know me I'm the boy next door?  the one you find so easy to ignore 
                     G (hold) 
Is that what I was, fighting for? 

D                      C
Walking on a thin line, straight off the front line 
G/B                 G                            D  Dsus4
Labeled as freaks, loose on the streets of the city 
D                      C
Walking on a thin line, straight off the front line 
G/B                    G                       D    D Bm G x2
Take a look at my face, see what it's doing to me

D         Bm       G            D        Bm           G
Taught me how to shoot to kill, a specialist with a deadly skill 
   D       Bm         G              D  Bm  G
A skill I needed to have to be a survivor 
D          Bm    G           D           Bm                  G
It's over now or so they say, well, sometimes, it don't work out that way
            D         Bm               G           D  Bm  G
Cause your never the same when you've been, under fire

C                          D                                   C
Don't you know me I'm the boy next door?  the one you find so easy to ignore 
                     G (hold)
Is that what I was, fighting for? 
D                      C
Walking on a thin line, straight off the front line 
G/B                 G                            D  Dsus4
Labeled as freaks, loose on the streets of the city 
D                      C
Walking on a thin line, straight off the front line 
G/B                     G                      D
Take a look at my face, see what it's doing to me

C                          D                                   C
Don't you know me I'm the boy next door?  the one you find so easy to ignore 
                     G (hold)
Is that what I was, fighting for?
D                      C
Walking on a thin line, straight off the front line 
G/B                 G                            D  Dsus4
Labeled as freaks, loose on the streets of the city

Walking on a thin line, straight off the front line 
G/B                     G                      D
Take a look at my face, see what it's doing to me    (repeat chorus, solo, fade)
