How To Play

Intro:
 
Synthesizer:
 
Bass: G#m-E-B--
 
B--C#m-G#m-E-- x3
 
 
Verse 1: Punk rock drums
  B
I woke up today
Surrounded by blackness
   E
A small warning sign
Devoured the process
     F#
It's always been fine
I get up and ignore this
    B
And it's hard to say
 
But I feel a bit
 
weightless
        E
But the more that I admit
I feel up and anxious
        F#
And the more I go on
The less I can face this
    B
And those rotten things
That live in our shadow
   E
We walk on the line
Of death and the gallows
    F#
And hope that we're clear
I bet we can follow
 
 
Chorus: Slower drums
         B     F#   C#m
It's the worst damn day 
(doesn't hurt that much)
G#m Ebm E
Of  my  life
         B    F# C#m
I made a mess to-day 
(doesn't hurt that much)
    G#m Ebm E
But I'm al--right
 
 
Verse 2:
B
When I was young
The world it was smaller
    E
The cities were vast
The buildings were taller
  F#
I felt really strong
My parents seem stronger
   B
But life has a way
Showers with greatness
     E
Then takes it away
The pieces that made us
      F#
Then teaches you things
You'd never imagine
   B
We all get the same
The memories the burdens
           E
And those pictures we made
They still form a pattern
     F#
They courteously say
Does it not matter?
 
 
(Repeat Chorus twice)
 
 
Bridge: Dubstep vibe
G#m--E--B--F#-- x2
 
 
(Repeat Chorus twice)
