The other version isn't the way Frank plays it so I thought I'd do a more accurate version.


Capo 2

Em AmRichard Divine made up his mind to take the last few steps
D Emto the bathroom door from his bedroom floor and to lock himself in.
Steady young hands, meticulous plans,
Am Ddisposable razors and a blisterpack filled with strong sleeping pills,
Emand a bath of hot water.
G Bm CHe said he’s not for sale, said that he felt hounded,
Am Emcrowded and surrounded by this life he didn’t choose.
Em He carefully wrote a funerary note
Am D on his best writing paper to set out the facts,
Emand sealed it with wax, and left it in the kitchen.
AmHe left it out so his parents would know what there was waiting for them:
D Empale cold skin and blood seeping in to the landing carpet.
G Bm CHe said he’s not for sale, said that he felt hounded,
Am Gcrowded and surrounded by this life he didn’t choose.
Bm CBut everybody plays this game on a daily basis.
AmThey’re not heroes, they’re survivors,
and it’s not Shakespearian if they lose.
Em AmSo do what you want, do what you want, do what the voices tell you,
D Em but don’t ever say that we didn’t warn you.
cause we warned you
G Bm CHe said he’s not for sale, but he bought into his failure.
Am GHe’s telling tales that hammer nails right into open palms.
G Bm CA martyr in reverse, he’s best at being worst,
Am Gthe rest of us are cursed but we keep calm and we carry on.
G, Bm, C, Am x2
G Bm So Richard, here it is: none of us are blameless, huddled here like
Cstrangers,
Am Gshameless in our lists of all the changes we say we need.
Bm But I think that you knew that,
C Amyou can’t pretend it’s news that when you cut yourself you’ll bleed.
