Verse 1I hate myBmself, more than I Aever let Gon. I'm burned out at Atwenty-two. EmI lived too fast and I Aloved too F♯mmuch and I'll die too young, but I chose this Bmcup that I drank from. Knew what AI was getting Ginto. But I couldn't let Aout what I Emhad to keep in. I'm ashamed of myAself and unF♯mspeakable sins, that I've committed, and
ChorusGI've made mistBmakes, but I'll Afind my Gway. There's no explAanation for, Bmthe things I've fAailed at befGore. They can't Ahold my hand. BmIt just Ahurts to be a Gman, Through the Atortures of the Bmdamned.
Verse 2If I only had an Bmaxe, I'd sever the Aties I've Gmade with the world. Maybe AI can be a Emstranger, in a strange place.A If F♯mI start now, maybe I can be saved. BmIf I only had a mask, A GI'd cover these bleeding eyes.A They're Embloodshot now but they'll be black by Adawn. F♯mIf I wake up now, I can be pure again.
BridgeB♭dimLook at me now, I'm on the Gtracks with my back toward the Alast train leaving Bmtown. [x4]
