Verse 1
D                         D
This place is dragging me down
   Bm     F#m      G           A   E
A hamster wheel, I thought I'd be done by now\
D                            D
Now that all my allies are gone
  Bm  F#m  G         A    E            E
I realize advancing could hold you back


Chorus
B    D     F#m      G         A       A#      B
My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside
G    D        F#m      G        A      C#        D
But its high tide and they get washed away with time
      B            G           B            G
Until everything's gone, until everything's gone

Repeat Intro x2

Verse 2
D                                      D
I was flying along the Long Island sound
       Bm      F#m    G         A       E
But fine's polite I'd rather things more profound
D                                                  D
I've become a rock these days and I swim like one
             Bm          F#m    G         A      E              E
Alone again, barely      surviving       the   tidal wave

B    D      F#m     G        A       A#      B
My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside
G      D      F#m        G      A      C#       D
But its high tide and they get washed away with time
        B          G           B            G
Until everything's gone, until everything's gone

  F#m                   G             A
I swear, damn it all to hell, damn it all to hell

  D                F#m        B            A
I think I finally found the way to go to heaven
        D                 F#m          B                A
Without dying,     so I'm on       my way
    E          F#m       G          A
The harder you work, the harder you fall
    E           F#m      G          A
You wake up one day with nothing at all

Chorus X2 MUTED

Chorus
B    D  F#m        G         A       A#      B
My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside
G    D        F#m      G         A     C#       D
But its high tide and they get washed away with time
      B            G           B            G
Until everything's gone, until everything's gone
      B            G           B            G
Until everything's gone, until everything's gone
  F#m                   G              
I swear, damn it all to hell
