          C                               
There's a boy I know, he has a heart of glass
      F
It is gold inside but it has crystallized
      Dm
It is beautiful but in its tragedy
      G 
It is hard to hold without shattering
            C
He calls himself at night, in soft over-chords
             F
Keeps coming back to it, his voice and echo coarse
         Dm 
Till the sound's so thick it turns the sky to smoke
        G
And the greyest days the predictions told


         C
But this boy I know, he is pure of soul
          F
Just gets lost sometimes in his chemicals
        Dm
Under a coat of night, it's oh-so-comforting
         G 
And that first breaking light becomes his enemy
            C
He calls so late tonight, it is 4 a.m.
      F
He is drunk, he can't find his apartment
        Dm
I don't like how it feels when I think of him
    G
All hooded in black, lost and stumbling



    F             G               Am
The days start to fade out of the frame
             F             C              G
Like they're blurring into someone else's name


    C
You try your hardest to rewind the tapes
              F
But you're prepared every day to make the same mistakes
     Dm
Step out of that life
             G
It's nowhere near your time
       C
Just remember you called it all bullshit
         F
Well, it is and if you stop giving into it
        Dm              G
You can walk away the freest man


     C
This boy I know lives in a bell jar
      F
It is balancing upon his pedestal
            Dm
He's trying not to upset his conscious
               G
Afraid it's so fallen that no one will catch him
         C
But I've been there too and I swear to god
         F
If I can help you, please, you gotta tell me how
              Dm
I know you've been away and it can break you down
      G
And I don't want you gone


F              G              Am
All the cracks you see can be repaired
           F        C                G
And if you start to fall, we will be there


      C
Don't drown yourself in all your old regrets
               F
'Cause all the heaviness will steal away your breath
     Dm
Step out of that life
             G
It's nowhere near your time
             C
And don't forget you called it all bullshit
         F
It still is and if you stop giving into it
         Dm              G
You will walk away the freest man


C
Shake your head
F
Loosen your grip
Dm
Raise up your fist
G
You are the freest man


C
Open your mouth
F
Scream it out loud
Dm
Forget all your doubt
G
You are the freest man
