Verse:
D      Dmaj7           Em
In the back-seat of my heart.
D   Dmaj7              Em    G
My love tells me I'm a mess.
D         Dmaj7           Em
I couldn't get the car to start.
D        Dmaj7                  Em    G
I left my keys somewhere in the mess.

D            Dmaj7    Em                               G
It comes and goes in plateaus, one month later I'm a fucking pro.
D                   Dmaj7    Em    
My parents would be proud
G       D              Dmaj7              Em
Oh, fall asleep on the floor, forget what happened in the morning
G         D                Dmaj7                Em
There are notes in your handwriting, so you can make it out


Chorus:
G5           D5
We are not a proud race
A5                 F#5
It's not a race at all
           E5
We're just trying
         D5            A5
I'm only trying to get home
A5
Drunk drivers, drunk drivers.
G5            D5
This is not a good thing
  A5                F#5
I don't mean to rationalise
   E5                 D5
Or try and explain it away
          A5
It's not okay
A5
Drunk drivers, drunk drivers


Verse:
D       Dmaj7           Em9
Its too late to articulate it
   D        Dmaj7   Em9    G
That empty feeling
    D            Dmaj7        Em9
We share the same fate as the people you hate
D              Dmaj7                   Em9
You built yourself up against others feelings
                 G        D  
Then it left you feeling empty
     Dmaj7              Em9
As a car coasting down hill
                      G
I have become such a negative person
D                  Dmaj7
It was all just an act
               Em9                  G
It was all so easily stripped away
D                               Dmaj7
But if we learn how to live like this
             Em9                       G
Maybe we can learn how to start again
       D                        Dmaj7
Like a child who has never done wrong
           Em9
Who hasn't taken that first step


Chorus:
G5           D5
We are not a proud race
A5                 F#5
It's not a race at all
           E5
We're just trying
         D5            A5
I'm only trying to get home
A5
Drunk drivers, drunk drivers.
G5             D5
Put it out of your mind
A5              F#5
And perish the thought
           E5             D5
There's no comfort in responsibility
A5
Drunk drivers, drunk drivers.

G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
It doesn't have to be like this
G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
Killer whales, killer whales
G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
It doesn't have to be like this
G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
Killer whales, killer whales

G5                D5
Is that voice in your head
   A5             F#5 
Giving you shit again?
                 E5
But you know he loves you
                D5                A5 
and he doesn't mean to cause you pain
G5              D5
Please listen to him
A5             F#5
It's not too late
              E5
Turn off the engine
               D5                   A5
Get out of the car and start to walk
A5
Drunk drivers, drunk drivers, drunk drivers, drunk drivers

G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
It doesn't have to be like this
G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
Killer whales, killer whales
G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
It doesn't have to be like this
G                  D
It doesn't have to be like this
A                  Em
Killer whales, killer whaaaaaaaales

Thanks for making this, but the outro should be F#m instead of Fm. Everything else is dead on!
