^= Bend up
/= Slide

Well I woke in mid-afternoon cause that's when it all hurts the most,
I dream I never know anyone at the party and I'm always the host,
If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts,
You can never escape, you can only move south down the coast,

Well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame,

(this is the first riff)----12^-12------10---------|--------------------12-----|---------------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame
(second riff)-----9-9-9-12-9------------14-12-9----|----------------12----9------------12-|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame (third riff)
And though I'll never forget your face, sometimes i can't remember my name, (fourth riff)
