A Line Allows Progress, A Circle Does Not by Bright Eyes.
    3/4 time.

intro (picked)

C# -C#/C (x366xx) - Bm - F#m     x1

C#                   C#/C  
  Sitting around, no work today
     Bm             F#m
Try pacing to keep awake
C#                 C#/C   
 Laying around, no school today
       Bm                                       F#m
Just drink until the clock has circled all the way

Bm, Bm, Bm, F#

VERSE 1: 4/4 time.

        Bm
It is late afternoon 
        G
as you walk through the rooms
       D
of a house that is quiet
           F#
except for unanswered telephones

      Bm
You stand near the sink
             G
while you're mixing a drink
              D
You think you don't want to pass out
              F#
where your roommates will find you again

BRIDGE: 3/4 time.

Bm                                     G
Stumble around the neighborhood with nothing to do
                D                        F#
You're always looking for something to sniff, smoke or swallow
Bm                         G
Calling over next door to see what they got
                D                            F#
But you would settle for anything that would make your brain slow down or 

CHORUS: 4/4 time.

 G                      D                             G                 F#
Break this circle of thoughts you chase before they catch back up with you
          G                    D
And your parents noticed your thinning face
                    F#
All the weight you lost
                         F#7
All the weight you are losing


VERSE 2: 4/4 time.

               Bm                                     G
You said "I'm done feeling like a skeleton, no more sleep walking dead"
                 D  
You're going to wake from this coma
                 F#
You're going to crawl from this bed you have made
Bm 
And stop counting on that camera
    G
that hangs round your neck
                  D
Because it won't ever remember
         F#
what you choose to forget

      Bm
As you try to find some source of light
G
Try to name one thing you like
     D
You used to have such a longer list
F#
And light you never had to look for it
          
             Bm             
But now it's so easy, it's so easy to
             G
But now it's so easy, it's so easy to
D                            
second guess everything you do
       F#
until all you want is to 

CHORUS: 4/4 time/

G                D
Finish this half empty glass
            G               F#
before the ice all melts away
      G              D
This feeling always used to pass
                      F#
Seems like it's every day 
                      F#7
Seems like it's every night now
