Chording for "This Is Where It Ends" by Steven Page and Ed
Robertson, performed by the Barenaked Ladies on "Born on a Pirate Ship"

Interpretation by Michael Falk, mjf27@iastate.edu

Intro:  G  G/E  G/D  G/C (2x)

Verse 1:
G       Bm               Am                   D                    G
I don't buy everything I read, I haven't even read everything I've bought.

        Bm               Am                 D                   
I don't cry every time I bleed, my eyes are dry, but they're bloodshot.

G      D        C   D       G   D            C      D           
I have faith in medication, I believe in the Prozac Nation,

G        D           C         D
You play doctor, but I've lost patience.



Chorus:

C                          D
But this is where it ends, this is where it ends,

G                   D/F#               Em                      D        
Call the police and call the press but please, dear God, don't tell my friends,

C                      D                G
This is where it ends, this is where it ends.



Interlude:  G  G/E  G/D  G/C (2x)




Verse 2:

G          Bm                      Am               D                       G
Where's my pride?  Where's my self esteem?  Does it show in the drinks I've bought?

        Bm         Bm   Bb  Am          D
I don't hide every time I'm seen, but I try not to get caught.

G      D     C   D         G      D       C     D
Make excuses for behavior, can my illness be my savior?

G      D           C         D
Hid my heart while you still gave yours,



CHORUS:

C                          D
But this is where it ends, this is where it ends,

G                   D/F#               Em                      D        
Call the police and call the press but please, dear God, don't tell my friends,

C                      D                G
This is where it ends, this is where it ends.

Bridge:
Em           D                  C G    (Am D)
She says she wants to live in a movie,

Em      D                    C     Bm            Am           G
I say I want someone else to stand behind me and write it all down,

         C        Bm       Am       G
'cause I can't be bothered doing it myself,

      C                      Bm                      D/F#
And I don't want the responsibility of proving its importance.



Verse 3:
G      D         C      D       G           D      C      D
I have loved and I have waited, been picked up and been sedated,

G      D      C  D
Mental health is overrated.


Chorus:
C                          D
But this is where it ends, this is where it ends,

G                   D/F#               Em                      D        
Call the police and call the press but please, dear God, don't tell my friends,

C                      D                G
This is where it ends, this is where it ends.



Outro:  G  G/E  G/D  G/C (4x)
