Intro (Listen to the original song for the rhythm):

Em D C

Em Bm C

First Verse:

           Em               D            C
There's a lightning storm each and every night
          Em         Bm        C
Crashing inside you like motorbikes
   Em               D          C
We toss and turn, sleep so loud
           Em
Grind the teeth in our
Bm          C                   Em
Our empty mouths (are empty...)

Second Verse:

            Em        D         C
There's a forest fire burning bright
            Em             Bm          C
Spreading quickly towards our last rites
     Em           D            C
Nowhere to run, pointless to hide
          Em                    Bm        C
Just lay there and scream, pretending to try
               Em
Pretending...

Chorus:

              C                   Em
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
D           C               Em
Everyone learns faster on fire
D               C             Em
Things took a turn, lost all desire
      D            C              D
You live and you burn
      C                   Em 
You live and you burn

Third Verse:

       Em                D         C
This impending doom is left deep inside
             Em        Bm              C
And it's haunting you each and every night
        Em                  D       C
Like starving wolves    drowning sheep
     Em                  Bm         C   
We close our eyes, pretending to sleep
                   Em
Descending...

Chorus:
   
              C                   Em
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
D           C               Em
Everyone learns faster on fire
D               C             Em
Things took a turn, lost all desire
      D            C              D
You live and you burn
      C                
You live and...

Bridge:

      Em7            G      Cadd9
Like hell we are anxiously waiting
      Em7            G      Cadd9
Like hell burning silently strong
     Em7          G         Cadd9  D
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
      Cadd9                D
And somehow this hell is home

Chorus:

              C                   Em
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
D           C               Em
Everyone learns faster on fire
D               C             Em
Things took a turn, lost all desire
      D            C              D
You live and you burn
      C                
You live and...

Bridge:

      Em7            G      Cadd9
Like hell we are anxiously waiting
      Em7            G      Cadd9
Like hell burning silently strong
     Em7          G         Cadd9  D
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
      Cadd9                D
And somehow this hell is home
       C                D    Em
Right now, this hell is my home
