Here's House, my personal favorite off the album. The album's tuning is a little weird 
but half step down is close enough and sounds good if you play it by yourself. Look 
below, I wrote it all out in tab too.


INTRO: (lead below)
D   A   G     x4


VERSE:
D   A             G
7 oíclock and Iím 7 deep.
D         A              G
Trying to shake off some chick who made my knees weak.
D         A           G
I plan on waking in a pile of puke
D      A           G
from a night spent drinking to forget you.


D   A   G     x4


CHORUS:
G         D           A         G          D        A
I think I found bravery, he was dressed in wood and strings.
G   D          A                         G           D        A
I embraced him as a friend and have been laughing at danger ever since.
G          D       A               G     D       A
If this is growing up, Iíve been a child far too long
G          D              A
cause I am poised to take on the world
          G         D              A
with this bottle of Jack on your front lawn.
    G       Gm
But Iím not telling you,


VERSE 2: (see below)
                             D      A      G
Cause I donít want to be the bearer of bad news,
          D            A    G
Cause Iíd rather not upset you.
              D    A    G
You said that everybody runs,
     D                  A   G
well you were the one I ran to.
           Em          G
But youíre not here anymore, case and point:


BRIDGE:
        Bm             A           D        G
That is why Iím passed out on this bathroom floor.
        Bm           A               D            G
I guess everyone was right when they said I had a little more
Bm     A                D                  G
than I shouldíve in the first place, letís talk about your face
Bm  A           D          G
and how I wonít never ever see it again,
Bm            A               D
donít fucking show your face again.


D   A   G     x4


VERSE:
D        A             G                       D       A      G
You said the only place that you felt safe was in your humble home.
D             A          G                         D     A            G
Well darling, I couldnít find the key so I threw a cello through your window.
D          A            G
Youíre not safe in your house now.
D          A            G
Youíre not safe in your house anymore.
D          A            G
Youíre not safe in your house now.
D          A            G
Youíre not safe in your house anymore.
