[Intro]
Em                  Bm
sitting around, no work today
C                           Em
try pacing to keep awake
Em                  Bm
laying around, no school today
C                                                               Em
just drink until the clock has circled all the way

Em
it is late afternoon
           G
as you walk through the rooms
       D
of a house that is quiet
                 F#7
except for unanswered telephones
Em
you stand near the sink
      G
while you're mixing a drink
       D
you think you don't want to pass out
                  F#7
where your roommates will find you again

[Verse 1]
Bm                                                         G
stumble around the neighborhood with nothing to do
                    D
you're always looking for something
F#7
to sniff, smoke, or swallow
Bm                               G
calling over next door to see what they got
                   D
but you would settle for anything
F#7
that would make your brain slow down or stop

[Chorus]
G                           D
break this circle of thoughts you chase
                 G                             F#7
before they catch back up with you
               G                              D
and your parents noticed your thinning face,
                             Bm
all the weight you lost
                                  F#7
all the weight you are losing

[Verse 2]
                Bm
you said, "i'm done feeling like a skeleton
              G
no more sleep walking dead"
                         D
you're going to wake from this coma
                         F#7
you're going to crawl from this bed you have made
Bm
stop counting on that camera
       G
that hangs round your neck
                          D
because it won't ever remember
               F#7
what you choose to forget as you
Bm
try to find some source of light
G
try to name one thing you like
D
used to have such a longer list
F#7
and light you never had to look for it
                   Bm
but now it's so easy, it's so easy to
G
it's so easy, it's so easy to
D
second guess everything you do
        F#7
until all you want is, all you want is

[Chorus]
     G                    D
to finish this half empty glass
               G                   F#7
before the ice all melts away
       G                  D
this feeling always used to pass
                                     Bm                  F#7
but seems like it's every day and every night now
