   [A]     [G]
I just shook the handshake
    [G]                                                   [D]
I just sealed the deal
   [A]                         [G]
I'll try not to let them
   [G]                        [D]
Take everything they can steal
  [A]                         [G]
People always told me
   [G]                       [D]
Don't forget your roots
   [A]               [G]                       [G]                         [D]
I know I can feel them underneath my leather boots

  [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
You toss all the mornings lost to the clouds and you watch it go
  [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
Your fairweather friends on a parachute binge get lost when the wind blows
   [G]                  [G/F#]               [Em]    
The handshake's stuck on the tip of my tongue
  [Bm]
It tastes like death but it looks like fun

        [B]
I was a loner
                     [E]      [D#]    [G#m] 
I was just waiting   by     myself
  [B]      [D]
When you, warped temptress
                                    [B]                  [E]
Rose to bring me happiness and wealth
           [E]                  [D#]                [D]                     [A]
Black tears, black smile, black credit cards and shoes
           [A]
You can call all the people you want
           [E]                   [F#]
But it's you who's being used
     

           [B]
Under your black eyes, honey
       [E]      [D#]    [G#m]
Right beneath your nose
[B]      [D]
A curse on all creation
                   [B]                  [E]
Every single thing you know
            [E]                  [D#]                [D]                     [A]
White smoke, white light, white marble on the floor
[A]                                                                      [E]               [F#]
It would only take a few seconds of darkness to figure out what's in store
Little girl

   [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
Ohhhh You convince yourself that you want it, but you don't know
   [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
You keep trying to wash the blood from your hands, but it won't go
     [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]
We're gonna keep you on the run
 [Bm]
We got the handshake under our tongue

[Bm]
We got the handshake x15
