You started a fire
C       Em
That was never supposed to burn out
F                       G
You started a band
C       Em
That was cool for a while, but it turned pretty bland
F                       G
I started a fight
C       Em
With a neighbor next door and his pesky wife
F                       G
You started a job
C       Em
That you hate when you’re sober, and hate even more when you’re not.
F                       G
And I know, you hate me too;
F       G      C    G      Am     G     F 
You always say you do.
F               G      C

You moved to Japan
C       Em
Thought a clean bill of health and a camera could show you the plan
F                       G
I bought a bird
C       Em
That repeats what I say, but, “I’m lonely” is all that he’s heard.
F                       G
You found a guy
C       Em
That is clearly the opposite of me, with a black motorbike
F                       G
I dicked around
C       Em
But it’s just like a movie whose picture is off with the sound.
F                       G

And I know, you hate me too;
F       G      C    G      Am     G     F 
You always say you do.
F               G      C

You started to write
C       Em
It was subtle at first, but the danger was clearly inside
F                       G
I don’t reply 
C       Em
Due to lack of an ego, and laziness, it cuts like a knife
F                       G
You say that you’re good
C       Em
Had a baby with biker, and named him “Forest Whitaker”
F                       G
I’m laying low
C       Em
On the probable chance you convince me to give him a home 
F                       G

And I know, you hate me too;
F       G      C    G      Am     G     F 
You always say you do.
F               G      C
And I know, you hate me too;
F       G      C    G      Am     G     F 
You always say you do.
F               G      C

Convention is to put the chords ABOVE the lyrics. Spot on though!

Playing along with the song from the album it sounds to me like it should all be a semitone down? So in stead of C Em F G it should be B D#m E F# I think? But this one sounds fine if you're playing it on your own.
