Intro 

Four measures of Dm (you might not want to play it that long)  
Verse
Dm                              F                              
  My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing,
Bb                                   A                       
  But you might as well just change your name.
Dm                              F                                
  'Cause I only recognize this shadow,
                     Bb                     A             Bb         
  Kinda like a superhero with nobody's best interests in mind.

Interlude

(Strike Once)
D A Bb F
(slowly release palm-mute)
A ------> Dm


Verse
Dm                                F                                         
  Now there's blood in the waters, that I squeezed from this stone, here
Bb                            A                                  
  And we turned into our cheap wine.
Dm                                F                              
  And I swallowed every drop, yes, I could feel my stomach rotting,
  Bb                           A                 Bb                 
  You were so supportive as I drank through the pain.

Chorus
Dm          Bb         F              A             Dm Bb Gm A      
  You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. 
Dm              Bb     F         A            Dm Bb Gm A           
  You placed it on my face here again, and again,      yeah.
      Dm       C           Bb       F        A          Dm                     
  And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

Another four measures of Dm

Verse
Dm                                F                                     
  Dove off the deep side platform, jack-knifed and bone dry, I hit floor
Bb                      A                                        
  One broken ankle saved my name.
Dm                         F                                    
  And this eraser burn, I dig in deep at every turn.
      Bb                           A              Bb              
  It keeps getting darker and the fear stays the same.


Chorus
Dm          Bb         F              A             Dm Bb Gm A      
  You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. 
Dm              Bb     F         A            Dm Bb Gm A           
  You placed it on my face here again, and again,      yeah.
      Dm       C           Bb       F          Dm                     
  And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place
         C           Bb       F                   
  don't wanna be the one who takes,
  Dm       C           Bb       F        A          Bb     Dm               
  I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

  No-oh, no-oh.   I don't wanna take this place, no.

  No-oh, no-oh.   I don't wanna take this place, no-o-o-oh   oh-whoa.

Chorus
Dm          Bb         F              A             Dm Bb Gm A

Dm              Bb     F         A            Dm Bb Gm A           
  You placed it on my face here again, and again,      yeah.
      Dm       C           Bb       F          Dm                     
  And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place
         C           Bb       F                   
  don't wanna be the one who takes,
  Dm       C           Bb       F        A          Dm               
  I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.
