V1
       Dm/C        C/Bb
In the pretend world
           Bb       F
We all are very awake
       Dm/C        C/Bb
In the pretend world
           Bb            F
We all look sterile and fake
        Dm/C     C/Bb
In this atmosphere
             Bb           F
We all could chatter for days
       Dm/C        C/Bb
In the pretend world
         Bb             F[let ring, then: ]
We never admit our mistakes

[For the prechorus/chorus, you can either continue the same strum pattern, just 
less muted, or strum the A, D, B strings as such: A D B A D B A D]
     
           Dm/C     C/Bb
But in the real world
            Bb             F [and repeat ad nauseum]
Were hiding alone and ashamed

And we cant live while
Because were addicted to pain
You see I cannot feel this
No matter how you try
In the real world
We cant deny

V2 [back to palm-muted]

In the pretend world
We gaze into empty eyes
We have to amuse ourselves
With adultery tales and white lies

[PreC/C: cleaner or strum pattern]

But in the real world
Where fools tormented for sport
We just stitch up our mouths
So we cant admit or retort
You see I cannot say this
Please don't ask me why
In the real world
We cant deny

You see I cannot feel this
No matter how you try
In the real world
We cant deny

You see I cannot say this
Please don't ask me why
In the real world
We cant deny

[palm muted, softly: ]

In my pretend world
We all are very awake
In this atmosphere
We all look starstruck and vague
You see I never loved you
No matter how you tried

In the real world
There's no goodbye
