Look what you started,

I seem to be coming out of my skin

Look what you’ve forgotten here

while we’re left with gallows,
               F                      G
waiting for us liars to come down and hang.

And here’s where the angels and devils meet.

And you can dance with the queen if you need,

And she will always keep your cards
         G          C
