Verse 1:
Em                D                                C
Sometimes life it takes you by the hair, pulls you down,
           D             G               D
Before you know it, it's gone and you're dead again.
Em                        D 
I've been in places and I won't pretend,
         C           D       G          D
That I'd make it out just to fall on my head.

Verse 2:
Em                          D
Which is strange I take the walk downstairs,
        C              D          G          D
Hit the pawn up on the corner and pay for my rent.
Em                        D
You know that I could not believe my own truth,
     C                D           G          D
Just show them what I choose, got nothing to lose.
[ Tab from: ]
Em                    D
Yeah, yeah and it's O.K.,
         C             D                G         D
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way.
Em D
Yeah, yeah and I'm alright,
         C                D                 G       D
I took a sip of something poisoned but I'll hold on tight.

Instrumental: Em, D, C, D, G, D x2

Verse 3:
Em                           D
You know those days when you want to just choose,
       C          D        G            D
To not get out of bed, get lost in your head again.
Em                           D
You're playin' games but you kind of cut,
              C           D            
'Cause you're coming down hard
         G              D
and your joints are all stuck.

Verse 4:
Em                          D
I've tried to say that it's not the only way,
   C            D       G              D
I never knew if I could face myself to change.
Em                        D
You were impatient, I was insecure,
         C                 D           
Slip and fall, I'm dodging calls,
       G                D
In the prison I've been living in.

[Chorus] x2

Instrumental:  Em, D, C, D, G, D
