Verse 1:
C#m             E      A   B
5-4-3-2-1 lets start a fire
Burn this town from inside out
E   A
Til no one's left alive
    B         C#m      E
And you can't feel the rhythm of
      A                 B    C#m
your steps when you hit the street
   E         A        B    C#m E A
Sixteen's so far away from here
B           C#m      E      A
when you're counting every step

C#m                          A
5-4-3-2 what are you waiting for?
The train is catching up
keep on running don't look back
Cause its 10-9-8-7 everybody's
coming to burn this city
burn this city down tonight
Leave it all behind

Verse 2:
All his life he lived
        E    A
in this same house
B C#m
  Same white fence surrounding 
E      A
him he swore he would get out
    B  C#m             E
But he can't cause his foot 
    A                    B   C#m
got caught in between in the rails
            E            A       B
And all his friends were up ahead
C#m E          A           B
    They can't hear him yelling
C#m    E         A
yelling for some help
    B    C#m      E
And it's much too late 
   A           B   C#m E A
to call the doctor now
B    C#m     E
This town is full of 
A          B     C#m      E     A
sympathies we're drowning in it all

(Repeat Chorus)

Is that the sound of the gate 
coming down no flashing
lights no warning

      When we press our ears to

petals in their place
C#m D F#m                          F#m
      5-4-3-2 What are you waiting for?
