Verse: 

look outside the sky is grey
And the clouds are filled with rain
It makes me jealous how it opens up and
I’m stuck inside again
I’m like a sitcom polyester family
Inside my t.v.

Pre Chorus:
C                    D
I’m the boy in the bubble and you
G    G/F#   Em
Can’t touch me
C   
I’ll never open up
    D
I’m never coming out and

Chorus: 
G   F          C                D    
I fear every time when the government calls
G     F      C            D
I’m absent hiding in my closet
G    F        C          D
I feel like a news correspondent
G      F           C           D
Got lockjaw can’t tell you that I love you
G      F           C           D
Got lockjaw can’t tell you that I love you

Verse:

I stand in the mirror and I pull my hair out
I can’t control my thoughts
I wonder why my eyes are dry as a desert
My stomach’s tied in knots

Pre Chorus:
C                                  D
I’m like a freak show sitting on a sidewalk
G      G/F#   Em
My outline drawn in chalk, yeah
C                             D
I freeze every time I hear the phone ring
G     G/F#   Em
I’ll never hear you knock
C            
I’ll never open up
     D
I’m never coming out and

Chorus: 
G   F          C                D    
I fear every time when the government calls
G     F      C            D
I’m absent hiding in my closet
G    F        C          D
I feel like a news correspondent
G      F           C           D
Got lockjaw can’t tell you that I love you
G      F           C           D
Got lockjaw can’t tell you that I love you

Verse:

I thumb through magazines to garner love facts
Cosmo’s got seven tips
I pick up the phone and I try to call you
No words just frozen lips, yeah

Pre Chorus:
C                               D
I send a message, but you know it’s always cryptic
G    G/F#    Em 
No sound on my t.v. yeah
C                     D 
I’m the boy in the bubble and you
G     G/F#  Em
Can’t touch me
C 
I’ll never open up
     D
I’m never coming out and

Chorus: 
G   F          C                D

G     F      C            D
I’m absent hiding in my closet
G    F        C          D
I feel like a news correspondent
G      F           C           D
Got lockjaw can’t tell you that I love you
G      F           C           D
Got lockjaw can’t tell you that I love you
G      F           C             D
Got lockjaw (can’t tell you that I love you)
G      F           C             D
Got lockjaw (can’t tell you that I love you)
   D      End on G I would assume:)
I love you
