Verse I
D, Bm, G, A x2

D                 Bm          G          A
First break the skin, next open the wound.

Why do you want to spend your life in jail?

D/F#           A
"I've lost my way"
Verse II (same as Verse I)

"Pour concrete on me delicately, baby
so I can live my sedimental life sedentarily," all life
"I could just sit here for hours and watch TV," worthlessly
Intro III (same as previous)
So that's why you choose to spend your life in jail?
Who would choose to spend their life in jail?

You've lost your way
Interlude I-(upbeat)
This part is hard to do as one person If you want to just play with the song strum back 
forth between:

D and A

Guitar I

Guitar II comes in about halfway through
------------------------------------------------------------------ Verse III(same as before) D Bm G "blow my money on my favorite company A they can blow holes in my ozone D so pour that propane on my clothes Bm G I like it when my skin glows A besides there's nothing to live for" D Bm G A unless you live a little more like you're going to die -------------------------------------------------------- Interlude II/Bridge (upbeat) D, A x 1 D so what the fuck are you going to do? they robbed your life from you A (pause) tell them you want to get it back A if you do, I've got your back D yes it's something worth defending so throw caution to the wind A(pause) and other platitudes A that were written just for you D take a shit in their swimming pool let them chase you if you do A finally something is happening to you D put an axe through the TV blow up your radio, A though you can't see them now you'll hear birds singing in your soul D sneak your way past the gates in a hard heart shape A if you're gonna be a shark you better learn to stay awake --------------------------------------------------------- Outro Walk Up: D/F#, G, G#,A, A#, Bm D Bm A G Ba, Ba, Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba.....X3 D Bm A G Why you wanna spend your life in jail? End on D ....I think that's about it! This is my favorite song off Arm's Way. Has a great build up! Enjoy!
