----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:NOFXMIKE
Email:no

Tuning:EADgbe

CHords: E5 C#5 G#5 A5 B5
Reason for update: The verse was missing the resolve to E. Fixed. Now it sounds right. I 
also changed a few chord positions in the song to sound more like the album recording.

I've got no clue where it leads, but my lungs need some air to breathe

My eyelids shutter then fall to the floor
