ENVY ON THE COAST
"Starving Your Friends"
Lucy Gray 2008

Tuning: EADGBe

Author's Note:
This is a beautiful song, originally written on piano on the album version and now
out for your enjoyment on guitar. When Ryan plays this song live he usually plugs in and
it on clean with a little delay, so you can play it like that or acoustic sounds just as 
This song is pretty simple, only semi-tricky part is the bridge. Enjoy!
-Seth Halperin

Thanks a lot, I've been disadvantaged from the start
Heading straight from the veins, heading straight to my head
Re-routed the blood, to my heart, instead
Re-routed the blood, to my heart, instead....

....I am brain dead, thinking strictly in blues and reds
I'm in enough trouble man, oh man I'm in trouble again
Because everyone's ears are watching me,
And I never ever felt that this would be...
Anything more than a makeshift personal IV

Because I fall three times as hard
If it's from nothing at all
You all seem twice as tall as I will ever be
And I feel terribly small
When my head works to hard
When you think with your chest there's not a thing that you won't see.

Because I'm hardly capable of half the damage I would like to do
I can swear that I don't care but you know I'm too full of shit
To think this through
So would you look at me, I pray to God, but curse too much
To be considered true
I'm just like me, I'm just like me so
Who the hell are you?

I know you think you know but these eyes are windows

LYRICS:

Thanks a lot.
I've been disadvantaged from the start
Heading straight from the veins, heading straight to my head
Re-routed the blood, to my heart, instead
Re-routed the blood, to my heart, instead....

I am braindead,
Thinking in strictly in blues and reds.
Oh, I'm in enough trouble man,
Oh man, I'm in trouble again
Cause everyone's ears are watching me,
But I never, ever felt that this would be
Anything more than a makeshift personal I.V.

(Chorus)
I fall three times as hard
If it's from nothing at all
You all seem twice as tall as I will ever be.

And I feel terribly small
When my head works too hard
When you think with your chest,
There's not a thing that you don't see.

I'm hardly capable of half the damage
That I would like to do
I could swear that I don't care,
But you know I'm too full of shit
To think this through.

So look at me,
I pray to God
But curse too much to be considered true.
I'm just like me,
I'm just like me,
So who the hell are you?
(End of chorus)

I'm but a boy,
Just like the rest of these thieves.
And I borrow phrases from
Dusty, faded, record sleeves

The story is the same,
I've just personalized the name
But if it's all you need,
Then I'd be more than happy to confess my shame'

(Chorus)

I know you think you know,
But these eyelids are windows
That shut you out from all the things
That I don't want you to know.
And I refuse to tell you
One single secret I own.
'Cause you'll find I'm petrified
Of your eyes.

I'm hardly capable of half the damage
That I would like to do.
I could swear that I don't care,
But you know I'm too full of shit
To think this through.

I've read the book,
I prayed to God,
But cursed too much to be considered true.
I'm just like me,
I'm just like me,
So who the hell are you?
