Its quite simple so here goes..

A - 577655
Bm - x24430
Dmaj7 - x57670

Intro: F#m A Bm Dmaj7 

Verse 1:
I'm making my escape, making my escape
I tell myself that everything's in shape
Everything's in shape, but me
How long can we stay, how long can we stay?
I tell myself that everything is great
Everything is great, Well how am I doing?

F#m                     A
   I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
                     Dmaj7           Bm
While everything is adding...Up, up, up
                Dmaj7            F#m
Everything is adding...Up, up, up

Verse 2:
Breaking both my hands,
Breaking both my hands
Telling me to 'take it like a man'
Take it like a man, I can't
I don't understand, I don't understand
Please repeat whatever you just said
Nothing's making sense,
Well how am I doing?

Chours x1

Verse 3:
They're breaking both my hands,
They're breaking both my hands
They're telling me to 'take it like a man'
Take it like a man, well fuck that
I don't understand, said,
I don't understand
So please repeat whatever you just said
'Cause nothing's making sense,
Well how am I doing?

Chorus x1
