G x4

They say you've got to lose a couple fights to win
C            D                   G
It's hard to tell from where I'm sitting

They say that this is where the fun begins
C            D               G
I guess it's time that I was quitting

Em       D      
A slight figure of speech
G         C
I cut my chest wide open
Em            D
They come and watch us bleed
G       C                   D    G             
Is it art like I was hoping now?

They said "I hope that you will never change"
C           D         G
I went and cut my hair

They say "Don't take your business to the big time"
C           D            G
I bought us tickets there

Em        D
A slight figure of speech
G         C
I cut my chest wide open
Em            D
They come and watch us bleed
G     C                     D
Is it art like I was hoping now?

G - (Riff 1)
What did you expect
And what did you forget
That to live you let go of me with each step
It becomes a progression I won't let regret manifest
To aggression
Are you to assess what I've been? What I am? Or become?
Did you stop to accept how pathetically dumb
It can be to
Attack those around 'cause you're
G - (Riff 2)
True to color, a town, a time, or a place?
It's not you, it's not mine
And besides it is gone
And you never will find it again
But I don't want to fight
I just ask let me be
I won't give the chance to be my enemy
So go home
Think it through


A jet plane and a big idea
C       D          G
I jump over the sea

What ifs hot on my trail
C        D               G
But that can't catch me, no

Em       D
A slight figure of speech
G        C   
I cut my chest wide open
Em            C
They come and watch us bleed
G     C                     D   
Is it art like I was hoping now?
