intro: D5  C5   G5  Bb5

D5
Help me if you can,
               C5
It's just that this,
           G5       Bb5
Is not the way I'm wired,
             D5
So could you please,

Help me understand why,
       C5                              G5      Bb5
You've given in to all these reckless dark desires,
       D5
you're Lying to yourself again,
C5
Suicidal imbecile,
      G5
Think about it,
                    Bb5
Pound it on a fault line,
                            D5
What will it take to get it through to you, precious?
         C5
I?m over this
                                    G5
Why do you wanna throw it away like this,
       Bb5
Such a mess,

(strum pattern change)

D5      C5   D5         C5   D5       G5 Bb5
Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time,
D5            C5
What's your rush now?
D5    C5    D5           G5 Bb5
Everyone will have his day to die

D5
Medicated,
Drama queen,
        G5       Bb5
Picture perfect numb belligerence,
D5
Narcissistic,
Drama queen,
        G5        Bb5
Craving fame and all its decadence

(back to original pattern)


       D5
you're Lying through your teeth again,
C5
Suicidal imbecile,
      G5
Think about it,
                    Bb5
Pound it on a fault line,
                            D5
What will it take to get it through to you, precious?
         C5
I?m over this
                                    G5
Why do you wanna throw it away like this,
       Bb5
Such a mess,

(strum pattern change)

D5      C5   D5         C5   D5       G5 Bb5
Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time,
D5            C5
What's your rush now?
D5    C5    D5           G5 Bb5
Everyone will have his day to die

(original pattern again)
D5                 C5
They were right about you
          G5           Bb5
They were right about you

Lying to my face again,
Suicidal imbecile,
Think about it, you're pounding on a fault line,
What will it take to get through to you precious?
I?m over this
Why do you want to throw it away like this?

Such a mess,
I'm over this
Over this! 
(strum pattern change)

D5      C5   D5         C5   D5       G5 Bb5
Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time,
D5            C5
What's your rush now?
D5    C5    D5           G5 Bb5
Everyone will have his day to die

C5                G5
If you choose to pull the trigger,
C5                 G5
Should your drama prove sincere,
C5
Do it somewhere
G5             D5
Far away from here
