[Intro]

G       F     F      C        Bb     x4


[Verse]

G                       F
   Tonight I’ll have a look
        F        C        Bb
And try to find my face again
G                       F
   Buried beneath this house
    F                  C    Bb
My spirit screams and dies again
G                      F
   Out back a monster wears a
F                 C         Bb
cloak of Persian leather
G                F
   Behind the TV screen
      F           C                
I've fallen to my knees 


[Pre-Chorus]

              G
I said you've got me where you want me
   Bb         C
Again I can't turn away
    G                           F             C
I'm hanging by a thread and Im feeling like a fool
     G                        Bb             C
I'm stuck here in between the shadows of my yesterday
  G    
I want to get away
  F            C
I need to get away


[Verse 2]

G               
   Blanket of silence
F        F            C           Bb
makes me want to sink my teeth in deep
G                  F
   Burn all the evidence
  F          C     Bb  
A fabricated disbelief
G                         F      F         C    Bb
   Pull back the curtains take a look into your eyes
G                      F      F            C                
   My tongue has now become a platform for your lies I said


[Pre-Chorus]

       G
You've got me where you want me
   Bb          C
Again I can't turn away
      G                        F               C
I'm hanging by a thread and Im feeling like a fool
     G                         Bb           C
I'm stuck here in between the shadows of my yesterday
    G    
I want to get away
  F            C
I need to get away


[Chorus]

G       F
Now you know
Bb               C                G
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
   F     Bb             C             G
Oh gosh, I aint got no other place to hide
        F            Bb         
chained down, like a sitting duck
     C                G
Just waiting for the fall
    F     Bb              C                
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall


[Instrumental]
(Intro x2)


[Verse]

G                    
   Deep in the jungle
F      F            C         Bb
Camouflaged by all the fallen leaves
G                      F
   A hand holds up the sky
      F          C         Bb
While shamefully I make my plea
G
   The alters callin’

F      F          C       Bb
But my legs won’t seem to stand
G
   Guess I'm a coward
F         F              C         
Scared to face the man I am I said


[Pre-Chorus]

       G
You've got me where you want me
  Bb           C
Again I can't turn away
     G                          F              C
I'm hanging by a thread and Im feeling like a fool
     G                             Bb           C
I'm stuck here right between the shadows of my yesterday
  G    
I want to get away
  F             C
I need to get away


[Chorus]

G       F
Now you know
Bb               C                G
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
   F     Bb             C             G
Oh gosh, I aint got no other place to hide
        F            Bb         
chained down, like a sitting duck
     C                G
Just waiting for the fall
    F     Bb              C                
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall

[Chorus]

G       F
Now you know
Bb               C                G
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
   F     Bb             C             G
Oh gosh, I aint got no other place to hide
        F            Bb         
chained down, like a sitting duck
     C                G
Just waiting for the fall
    F     Bb              C                G
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall
