--------------------------------------

 

Guitar ONE (power chords) :

 

Intro : C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 C5 Bb5 F5 G#5

 

C5 Bb5

Sharp and open, leave me alone

F5 G#5

And sleeping less every night

C5 Bb5

As the days become heavier and weighted

F5 G#5

Waiting in the cold light

C5 Bb5 F5

A noise, a scream tears my clothes as the figurines tighten

G#5

With spiders inside them

C5 Bb5

And dust on the lips of a vision of hell

F5 G#5

I laughed in the mirror for the first time in a year.

 

C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 1)

 

C5 Bb5 F5 G#5

A hundred other words blind me with your purity

C5 Bb5

Like an old painted doll in the throes of dance

F5 G#5

I think about tomorrow

C5

Please let me sleep

Bb5

As I slip down the window

F5 G#5

Freshly sqashed fly

C5 Bb5 F5 G#5

You mean nothing, you mean nothing.

 

C5 F#5 C5 F#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 3)

C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*4 (Rhythm Figure 1 twice, then 6, then 1 again)

C5 Bb5 F5 G#5

I can lose myself in Chinese art and American girls

C5

All the time

B5b

Lose me in the dark

F5 G#5

Please do it right

C5

Running into the night

Bb5

I will lose myself tomorrow

F5 G#5

Crimson pain, my heart explodes

C5 Bb5

My memory in a fire

F5

And someone will listen

G#5

At least for a short while.

 

C5 F#5 C5 F#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 3)

Eb5 F#5 Eb5 F#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 4)

F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 (with Rhythm Figure 5 - with every F5)

(I can never say no)

I can never say no to anyone but you.

 

C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*4 (with Rhythm Figure 2 twice, then 6, then 2 again)

 

C5 Bb5

Too many secrets, too many lies

F5 G#5

Writhing with hatred

C5 Bb5 F5 G#5

Too many secrets, please make it good tonight

C5

But the same image haunts me

Bb5 F5

In sequence, in despair of time

G#5 C5

I will never be clean again

Bb5 F5

Touched her eyes, pressed my stained face

G#5 C5

I will never be clean again (with Rhythm Figure 1)

Bb5 F5

Touch her eyes, press my stained face

G#5 C5 Bb5 F5

I will never be clean again

G#5 C5 Bb5 F5

I will never be clean again

G#5 C5 Bb5 F5

I will never be clean again

G#5

I will never be clean again.
