                    C
I wanna break apart my heart

                  Am
Glue the pieces to my car

                 F
Crash it into a wall

                       G
I don't wanna feel at all

                  C
Wanna break apart my heart



               C
Douse it in gasoline

              Am
Til the fire burns clean

                 F
Then flick a cigarette

                 G
Like that movie Con Air

             C
Doused in gasoline



     F       G
And if you think

          C                    Am
You are better than me, you're right

                   F (short strokes)
There's no one to love

                  G (short strokes)
There's no one to trust

        C   F   C  F
In my life.



                       C
I want to pick up the pieces

And plant them in the ground

                   F               G              C   - F - C (done quickly)
When a tree grows there I want to chop that tree down

                 C
Build it into a boat

                  Am
And float it in a lake

             F               G                            C
And with dynamite I will explode the thing that makes me make mistakes



     F       G
And if you think

          C                    Am
You are better than me, you're right

                   F (short strokes)
There's no one to love

Sometimes I get so lonesome I can't breath

    F               G                   C - B - Am
Sometimes I get so scared that I can't speak

      F             G               C         Am
Sometimes I get so worried I can't hear my heartbeat

  F
Anyway

  Fm
Anyway

C - F - C - F - C - F - C - C


                 C
I wanna tear out my heart

            Am
And give it away

       F             G          C
To a person more deserving one day

         C
If all I see

       Am
Is the worst in everything

                      F (quick strokes)
That's all I'm gonna get

                      G (quick stroke)
That's all I'm gonna get

                    C
That's all I'm gonna get


     F       G
And if you think

          C                    Am
You are better than me, you're right

In my life.

There's no one to love

                  G (short strokes)
There's no one to trust

        Am
In my life.

            F (short strokes)
No one to love

                  G (short strokes)
There's no one to trust

        C
In my life.

C                                  F
This place is taking all my self-esteem

C                          F
And everybody is afraid of me

Am               Em               C        F
And I can't make eye contact with anyone I see

C                    G           C
This place is taking all my self-esteem


C                          F
And everybody is afraid of me

C                               F
And I'm afraid to go out in the streets

Am              Em                  C            F
Reminders of my failures everywhere that I will be

C            G         C
Everybody is afraid of me

    Am     G         F    G
And people freak me out

Am      G      F      G
People make me scared

Am       G        F          G
People make me so damn self-aware


C


C                                  F
I get bronchitis twice a year at least

C                                        F
My lungs aren't the way that they should be

Am           Em          C           F
And I smoke more than a motherfucking chimney

C         G         C
I declare war on my body


C                         F
And I'm a liar and I am a thief

C                                    F
Taking things from those better than me

Am               Em            C              F
Pathetic little man with some pathetic little dream

C            G              C
I hope you all can forgive me

Of some land in the city

No one will know how evil I really am

Cause I like to wear disguises

My first two days were spent in the care of nuns

(listen to song for timing, its kinda hard to describe) 

C                      Am                  F                        G
I've had a bad day, I am ashamed, And I'm afraid
        F      G               C   Cmaj7 Am    F    G     C   Am C  C  Am C
And I am drained of what was named self-respect


C
If the bridge that I was driving over
Am                                                  F
Collapsed while I was driving over it
                                      G
That may not be such a bad thing

F                                      G
I would finally meet my maker
             C          Cmaj7  Am
I could meet the great   creator
             F                      G                             C   Am  C   C  Am  C
And I'd punch him for teaching me how to sing


C
And my body would be at the bottom
Am
Of a lake in West Virginia
      F                                                      G
Instead of the bottom of this bottle that I drink


           F                        G
I don't have a drinking problem
          C         Cmaj7    Am
Don't have a drinking solution
F                    G                       C  Am  C  C  Am  C
I don't think I ever learned to think


C
And no one knows
               Am
What it's like to be
F                        G
Anybody but themselves
F    G
No one
C   Cmaj7  Am
No-o one
F    G           C  Am  C   C  Am  C
No-o one else

We didn't come here to rock
                     G
We only came to disappoint you
                         Am
Cause deep down in your cunt
                               F   G
That's exactly what you wanted us to do

                          C
You wanted us to lead you on
                         G
You wanted us to bum you out
                      Am
So you could build us up
                        F  
And you could knock us down

      F          G        Am    C
If that's what gets your dick hard
   F                    G           ( C, G, Am, F )
Telling people they're bad at making art

                      C
You wanted to feel cheated
                               G
I guess we gave you what you needed
             Am
So you're welcome
                  F  G
Don't worry about it
                   C
Just stay on the couch
                    G
Judge whatever people do
                       Am
Don't do anything for yourself
                             F   G
I'd hate to see it happen to you

F                G         Am   C
If that's what gets your dick hard
   F                     G           Am
Telling people they're bad at making art
     F                  G              Am  C
Feeling just like you're the one in charge
     F         G             C
Pissing on my most pathetic parts



"Truckers are the Blood"


G C Em D
G C Em D

  G                  
  Don't know if I believe in god
           C
  But sometimes I pray
Em   
  Because the way I was raised
        D
  Keeps me afraid


G                          C
  A scientist that has to have his way
Em                       D
  I subsist of a steady diet of shame


  C      Em        G
  I hope I can forgive me
       C          Em        D
  For having the nerve to exist
  C      Em           G
  I hope someone can help me
  C          Em        G
  Make some sense of this


G
  I work a ten hour grave
C
  From nine to seven
Em
  And I can't fall asleep
D
  Until eleven past eleven


G
  There's no drug that I can take
C
  That will keep me from being awake
Em          D
  Past my, past my bedtime

  G                                                  C
  Truckers are the blood in the veins of the body of America
  Em                                                      D
  States are the arms and the legs and the brains and the eyes
  G                                         C
  There's a disease spreading from organ to organ
      Em                                 D
  And you are the white blood cell that fixes the problem


  C          Em           G
  You don't know your own power
  C          Em              D
  You don't know what you're worth
  C          Em             G
  You don't recognize your valor
          C                              D
  And until you do, nothing you do will matter

You and me

Breath deep til you're drunk will glee

Breath deep til you're drunk with glee

And love

Love will fuck us up

End on G



"Sense, Sensibility"

amazing song, amazing band. email me with questions, corrections, or life views.
in the chorus, the progression between G and Em has another chord in between, but I'm 
taught, so I don't know what it's called.
   G  ?  Em
e|-3--3--0--|
b|-0--0--0--|
g|-0--0--0--|
d|-0--0--2--|
a|-2--0--2--|
e|-3--2--0--|

G                           Am
earnesty and clarity, those wonderful mentalities
   D                      C              G
of decent positivity are all that we can scribe
                            Am
but misery and poverty they follow me and my family
    D                                   C               G
and though it seems that i can't win, i think i have to try
                                 Am
everyone's afraid of me, they'll never see that we all leave
    D                    C      G
the same damn blood each night

   Am        C            G    ?  Em
so you'll go your way and i'll go mine
          C          D           G
i hope we meet later on down the line

                          Am
sense and sensibility and peaceful productivity
  D                                C            G
a pretty girl with broken wings is all that i desire
                                 Am
but there's so much hostility in all the things surrounding me
    D                       C                 G
the awful blow of enmity is trying to stop me shine
                             Am
so i try to look inwardly at all the things inside of me
    D                       C                 G
but sodomy and buggery keep bubbling to the top

   Am        C           G    ?  Em
so you'll go forward and i'll go back
          C                  D            G
i hope we catch up with each other on the track

Am D C G
                                 Am
and i've been thinking awkwardly about the things that are holy
     D                           C         G
like Jesus, Joseph, and Mary and Mary Magdalene
                         Am
and even theoretically i don't think i could ever see
    D                         C             G
the perfect human being Jesus lived without sin

   Am        C          G    ?  Em
so you'll go upward and i'll go down
Am        C          G    ?  Em
you'll go upward and i'll go down
Am        C          G    ?  Em
you'll go upward and i'll go down
     C          D            G
i'll see you in hell when we die



"Who Are You?"


Artist: Andrew Jackson Jihad
Song: Who are you?
Album: Can't Maintain
 
Listen to the song for strumming. Oh yea not sure if this makes sense 
but at the end of the intro you do some pinky thing with the D chord 
then repeat chorus. Also all the chords are in the right places so listen
to the song!!!!!

Intro: G/A/C/A/C/A/C/D 

Who are you?
G       A

And where did you go?
    C         A

And where are you from?
C         A

And what do you know?
C               D         

You're in my blood
G            A

And you're in my hair
    C            A

You're in my heart
C            A

And you're in the air
    C             D


CHORUS: LA DA DA PART- A/G 2x


I met you once over the phone
G     A        C        A

You sounded sad and you seemed alone
C           A       C          D

You left me but I never left you
G        A  C     A          C

I never had the chance to
A       C              D


CHORUS: LA DA DA PART A/G 2x


Music was the one thing
A

We would have had in common
G

You were my age when I was born
A                          E

Would I have done what you did?
A

Would I do what you have done?
G

I like to think I'm a bigger man than that
A                            D


INTRO: G/A/C/A/C/A/C/D  2x


You had some problems with alcohol
G       A             C    A

You took 12 steps and you solved them all
C        A            C               D

It took 16 years for you to call
G       A            C      A

What gave you the brave to pick up that ball?
C         A       C                D     


CHORUS: LA DA DA PART A/G 2x


You played the trumpet and the drums
A                              G

While my mom sang at funerals
A                    E

I play guitar til my hands are numb
A                              G

You two are where music comes from, for me
A                             D


INTRO: G/A/C/A/C/A/C/D  2x

So thank you so much for not raising me
G        A      C        A           C

You spent your life on better things
A              C       D

And you would have been an awful dad
G       A          C       A     C

Thank you though for those genes you had 
      A              C               C

CHORUS: LA DA DA DA PART 1x

I just played this whole thing through and I can only see a few minor errors; the As in "Who are you?" seem to be wrong and also "Truckers are the Blood" is missing a few chords in between the ones tabbed here but otherwise fantastic! :)
