1. CYNICAL

[Intro]
C         Dm                     F        Bb
There's a Cynical feeling saying I should give up
C         Dm                    Bb
You said everything you'll ever say
C                   Dm
There's a moment of panic
     F               Bb
When I hear the phone ring
C         Dm               Bb
Anxiety's calling in my head
Dm    Bb   C        
Is it back again?
Dm      Bb   C            
Are you back again?

F (Drums)
F (Drums)

F     C     Dm   Bb

[Verse]
F                           C
Don't wake me up before you leave
                   Dm                                               Bb
Is there the slightest trace of what you once believed (woah, ohh)
F                           C
I feel your hand unlock the door
              Dm                     Bb
Leaving fingerprints of water in the oil (woah, ohh)

[Chorus]
F                   C            Bb
What's the point of saying sorry now
F                   C               Bb
Lost my voice while fighting my way out (while fighting my way out)
F                   C            Bb
What's the point of saying sorry now (not sorry, not sorry, not sorry, I'm not sorry)
F                   C               Bb
Lost my voice while fighting my way out (not sorry, not sorry, not sorry, I'm not sorry now)

2. BORED TO DEATH

[Intro]: Am C F

Am              C               F
There's an echo pulling out the meaning
Am         C                F
Rescuing a nightmare from a dream
Am               C               F
The voices in my head are always screaming
Am                      C           F
That none of this means anything to me

[Pre-Chorus]
           Am
And it's a long way back from seventeen
    C
The whispers turn into a scream
    F
And I'm not coming home

[Chorus]
C
Save your breath, I'm nearly
G                         Am
Bored to death and fading fast
F
Life is too short to last long
C
Back on earth I'm broken
G                        Am
Lost and cold and fading fast
F
Life is too short to last long

Am                 C              F
There's a stranger staring at the ceiling
Am         C            F
Rescuing a tiger from a tree
Am                  C               F
The pictures in her head are always dreaming
Am                 C             F
Each of them means everything to me

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

C    F    G  (x2)

C                                                   F
I think I met her at the minute that the rhythm was set down
           G                    C
I said I'm sorry I'm a bit of a let down
                                         F
But all my friends are daring me to come over
          G
So I come over and over and over
C                                                    F
So let me buy you a drink and we'll pretend that you think
                         G
That I'm the man of your dreams
                  C
Come to life in a dive bar
                               F
And we'll go over and over and over
             G                 C
And we'll go over and over and over
                               F
And we'll go over and over and over
             G                 C
And we'll go over and over and over

[Chorus]

Outro: C   F   G  (x6)  End on C

4. LOS ANGELES

C#m
(Day in day out)
                   A                    B
Up at 3AM with the searchlights shining down
C#m
(Day in day out)
                        A                       B
It's the blinding light underneath the dirt downtown
C#m                         A                     B
Listen to the sound as they bomb the sixth street bridge
C#m                        A               B
Listen to the sound of the voices south of Fifth

Los Angeles

I'm never coming home

C#m
Come down
     A              B
I've been awake for days
C#m
Knocked out
       A                B
By the sound of falling rain
C#m                                      A             B
Come down yeah, we'll watch the sun just burn away the sky
C#m                              A (Hit once then stop)
Watch the city lights die out up on Mulholland Drive

[Chorus] (Play the using the chords form the last half)

E                 B      A

Meet me where the skyline ends  (x3)

[Chorus]
C#m  B/Eb  E  A
(la la la la la la)
          F#  E
I'm never coming home(x4)

5. SOBER

[Chorus]
I know I messed up and it might be over
But let me call you when I'm sober
I'm a dandelion you're a four-leaf clover
But let me call you when I'm sober
C           G
Na na na na na na na 
Em          D
Na na na na na na na na
C           G
Na na na na na na na 
Em          D
Na na na na na na na na

C                G
I woke up in the pouring rain
Em                 D
West side Humboldt 7am
C                         G
Sleeping by a dumpster to keep me dry
Em                      D
With the radio on and a new black eye
          C                G
Because I bet you couldn't knock me out
      Em               D
And I guess you really got me now
C           G
Black sedan ran a red light
       Em                        D
Just a drunken bike messenger on Tuesday night

[Chorus]

C                    G
She undressed and we stumbled downstairs
Em                          D
Fell on to the table as the neighbours just stared
C                       G
We laughed out loud and smashed their lights
Em                            D
Digging with our hands in the dirt outside
        C                 G
And she dragged me to the edge of town
        Em                  D
And she slapped me then she pulled me down
C                G
I can do bad and you can do better
Em                         D
Spending all night getting lost together

[Chorus]

6. BUILT THIS POOL

B  F# G# E (x2)
Woo, woo
                       B  F# G# E

     C       G      F
The next day - the sun will always rise
      Am                         G
Every day that you waste, every promise you break

Someday I'll smile and say goodbye
       Am                         G
Every night that you fight every demon in sight

Sleeping on the floor

Wide awake from the dream

With a shake and a scream
F
Hope for so much more

D   Em  Bm  G (x2)

      D       Em          Bm     G
We're falling faster than we can fly
   D      Em             Bm     G
Forgotten seconds out on Sunset Drive
      D       Em    Bm   
And I hold on tight 
    G             D        Em   Bm   G
But not enough to hold you back

                  Bm      G                                 Bm
It feels like the moon is spinning off into outer space without you
     G                               D      Em   Bm  G
This room is such a lonely place without you


[Chorus]
D                    A
I wish that we could save today
Bm                  G
But I know we can't stay the same
D                  A
And I keep pushing you away
Bm             G    Bm   
Don't wait for me
G                               Bm
Home is such a lonely place without you
G
Home is such a lonely place

D   Em   Bm   G (x2)

  D        Em            Bm        G
I love the lightning but hate the rain
  D        Em             Bm     G
Tomorrows frightening but not today
              D        Em   Bm
Wish I could slow down time 
    G             D        Em    Bm   G
But not enough to slow you down

                  Bm       G                                Bm
It feels like the moon is spinning off into outer space without you
    G
The universe an empty place without you

[Chorus]

D   Em   Bm   G (x2)

      D       Em          Bm     G      
We're falling faster than we can fly
   D      Em             Bm     G
Forgotten seconds out on Sunset Drive...

[Chorus]

9. KINGS OF THE WEEKEND

G                        G
Can you read my thoughts
                        Em
I'm not sure what I said
                C                 C C D
I feel dumb and long night coming
G                       G
Did you steal my prayers
                         Em
I don't know where I was

Because we got no control
G
Friday nights always save my life
G                          F#/G  C
From the worst of times we ever had
C
Thank God for punk rock bands
B            C                 G
Until Monday morning strikes again
B          C
We are the kings of the weekend

B C B G   B C B G

G                 G                   Em
I can feel my head falling off my neck
                C             C C D
I need something to keep going
G                             F#/G     Em 
So just take my hand only second's left
                   C                 C C D
The clock's running our time's coming
(AH!)

[Verse]

D
I can almost see your house from here
D
But the signal seems to disappear
    G                 Em
So whats the problem Houston's calling
Bm 
Then you hit me like a Friday night
A
Like a handgun in a firefight
     G               Em
Dive in slow motion towards the ocean

[Chorus]

      D
Let's run away
                     G      A
Let's go and waste another year
      D                                   G    A
Lets spin apart while racing through the atmosphere
Bm       F#m 
We tumble through the night
    G
We burn so bright, we're teenage satellites

[Post-chorus]

D        G   A

[Interlude]

D

[Verse]

N.C.
I'm kind of nervous of the consequence
N.C.
As we climb over the neighbor's fence
N.C.
The longest summer's nights are numbered
Bm
Then you kissed me like a storm at sea
A
Like i'm the only one you'll ever need
G                    Em
We're left abandoned in the deep end

[Chorus]

      D
Let's run away
                     G      A
Let's go and waste another year

Lets spin apart while racing through the atmosphere

We tumble through the night

We burn so bright, we're teenage satellites

.....We're teenage satellites

[Bridge]

Bm
We are a slow descent
G          A
Forgotten astronauts

We are an avalanche
G              A           D
We're just an afterthought

[Chorus]

      D
Let's run away
                     G      A
Let's go and waste another year

11. LEFT ALONE

D    G (x2)

D                        A
Eyes are open, words are spoken

Here's to the sunrise
D                         A
Head is loaded, cards are folded

Under the moonlight

D                                  A
Can you remember, you remember the last time we woke up sober?
D                                  A
Can you remember, you remember the last night you ran me over?
D                  C#m  B
Are we halfway gone or halfway there?

[Chorus]
A      Em             C#m     D
Left alone we're only halfway home
A         Em           C#m         D
Sink like stones, fall into the unknown
A     E   D
Break me down, I'm not afraid of you
A    E  D      A   E   D
Pull me under, slowly drown
D
I never wanted to
A    E  D
Left alone to wonder

D                          A
Mind is open, thoughts are woken

There goes the sunrise
D                        A
Heart is broken, love unspoken

Here comes the moonlight

D                                  A
Can you remember, you remember the last time I left hungover?
D                                  A
Can you remember, you remember the last night that I stayed over?
D                  C#m  B
Are we halfway gone or halfway there?

[Chorus]

[Post-Chorus]
D          A            D     A
We're left alone, we're left alone
D          A            D    A
We're left alone, we're left alone

I won't fall down that fucking rabbit hole (I won't fall down, I won't fall down)

I'm barely standing on the ground (Barely standing on the ground)

13. SAN DIEGO

Am  G  F

Am          G                F
Sometimes I wonder where our lives go
Am            G              F
They question who we used to be
Am          G                 F
Sometimes I feel like i'm the oxygen between
Am          G            F
The cigarette and gasoline

[Chorus]
Em           F       G
I can't sleep cause what if I dream
                     Am
Of going back to San Diego
            F
We bought a one way ticket 
C                      G
So we could go see the Cure
                  Am                    F
And listen to our favorite songs in the parking lot
    C                       G
And think of every person I ever lost to San Diego
            Am   F   C   G
(To San Diego)
G                        Am   F   C   G
Can't go back to San Diego (Can't go back to San Diego)

Am        G               F
Abandoned Houses with the lights on
Am      G                 F
Late at night I call your name
Am        G                  F
Abandoned love songs smashed across the hardwood floors
Am         G               F
I read the sadness on your face

[Chorus]

C
I never needed to hear
Am
All of the pain and the fear
F
Your secrets filled up my ears
         G
Like the ocean blue
C
I never wanted to know
Am
How deep these cuts on you go
F                                 G
And like a river they flow to the ocean blue

[Chorus]

Am  G  F

D
Beige little boxes in a row
D
Neighbors and friends that you don’t know
                         B
Here’s a fork go wait in line
B                       Em
Can’t you see I’m doing fine
Em             A
It’s what I’ve always wanted
D
Two little kids out on the lawn
D            
Once we had love, now it’s gone
                             B
Good things haven’t happened yet
B                    Em
I’m empty as a movie set
Em             A
It’s what I’ve always wanted

[Chorus]
B             G      D   A
Hey here’s to you California
B         G          D    A
Beautiful haze of suburbia
B             G
Living in the perfect weather
D             A
Spending time inside together
B             G        D   A   G
Hey here’s to you California

D
Wearing all black out on the beach
D
Faces I’ve seen in magazines
                             B
Let’s take a walk out on the pier
B                         Em
Watch the shoreline disappear
Em             A
It’s what I’ve always wanted

Na, na na, na na, na na, na na (woah ohh) (x4)
