C                  |C                  |A2                 |A2

sad man                                 behind blue eyes

Em                 |G                  |D                  |D

No one knows what it's like       to be hated                    to be

C                  |C                  |A2                 |A2

fated                        to telling only lies.              But my

C                  |D                  |G                  |G

dreams                   they aren't as empty                      as

C                  |D                  |E                  |E

conscience          seems           to be                          I

D                  |D                  |C                  |C

these feelings                   like I do                       and I

empty                             as my conscience            seems to

                                              When my fist clenches,
crack it

E                  |Bm        G        |D                  |Bm
open,      before I use it and lose my cool.       When I smile, tell
me some

D                  |Bm        A        |E                  |Bm
bad news   before I laugh and act like a fool.

               If I swallow anything evil,         put your finger
down my

throat    and if I shiver, please give me a blanket, keep me warm, let
me wear

to be
