VERSE:
There's a liar in your bed
And there's a shotgun to your head
You can't breathe but you can smoke
              N.C
You can't cry
But you can joke about it

VERSE:
You can drink yourself to chills
You can hide your little pills
As your life slowly explodes
You can believe nobody knows about it


BREAK:
         C
Do you think that you're the only one
E                    D
 Who's losing their minds
 C
Keeping it together
   B            A        E
Is  everyone's favorite pastime, well


CHORUS:
 A                    D
Everybody's had some really, really bad
       A                     D
Some this has got to be the end
         A
I would really like to try for you
D
Sit around and cry for you
 F                   E
Muster up some sympathy yeah
      D                           A A
Well that's too much to ask of me


VERSE: (play the INTRO pattern 2x's until BREAK)

You try so hard to be discreet
With all your secrets in the sheets
 As you solemnly refuse
The very spark that lights your fuse


BREAK:
         C                            E
Do you think that you're the only one
            D
Who can be unkind
 C
Tearing at each other's flesh
B               A        E
 Is everyone's favorite pastime, well


CHORUS:
 A                    D
Everybody's had some really, really bad
       A                     D
Some this has got to be the end
         A
I would really like to try for you
D
Sit around and cry for you
 F                   E
Muster up some sympathy, yeah
      D
Well that's too much to ask of me
