(*Am — Bass: ABCA          **Am — Bass: F#GF#)
[Intro]   AmAm9 – *Am – **Am/F#Am/F

[Verse 1]
Am               Am9 *Am                                         **Am/F#      Am/F
Keep   you   in      the   dark,   you know they all,        pretend.
Am              Am9 – *Am                    **Am/F#                  Am/F
Keep   you   in        the dark,   and so it all,                   began...

[Verse 2]
A5                                                                                  F#5    F5
Send in your skeletons...Sing as their bones go marchin' in... a-gain.
A5                                                                                       F#5
    The need you buried deep...the secrets that you keep are at the rea-dy...
A5
Are you ready?
A5                                    F#5                        F5
     I'm finished makin' sense...Done pleading ig-nor-ance.  That whole............defense.

[Pre-Chorus]
A5
     Spinning infinity, boy.
F#5              F5    D5        E5   F#5      G5
The wheel is spinnin' me...It's never-ending, never-endin'...   Same  old  story.

[Chorus 1] x2
A5  
What if I say I'm not like the others?
                                                            F#5
What if I say I'm not just another,  one of your plays?  You're the pretender...   
F5
What if I say I will never surrender?

[Interlude]   Am   Am6   Am7   Am6 (x2)     Am

[Pre-Chorus]
A5                                                                         F#5              F5
    In time or so I'm told...   I'm just another soul for sale... oh, well
A5                                                                      F#5            F5
    The page is out of print..   We are not permanent... We're temporary, temporary
D5        E5   F#5      G5
Same  old  story.

[Chorus 1] x2
A5  
What if I say I'm not like the others?
                                                            F#5
What if I say I'm not just another,  one of your plays?  You're the pretender...   
F5
What if I say I will never surrender?

D5   E5    F#5   G5
Ooooohhhhh…

[Interlude]   Am -Am6 -Am7 -Am6 -Am -Am6 -Am7 -Am (x2)

[Verse 3]
Am  Am6   Am7  Am6     Am   Am  Am6   Am7  Am6  Am…
I'm the voice inside your head...  You refuse to hear.
Am  Am6   Am7  Am6     Am        Am  Am6  Am7  Am6  Am
I'm the face that you have to face,  Mirrored in your stare.
Am  Am6  Am7  Am6  Am               Am                     Am - Aadd9 - A5
I'm what's left, I'm what's right,  I'm the enemy.
Asus    Am    Aadd9                           Asus    Am    Aadd9
I'm the hand that will take you down... Bring you to your knees

A5          Am7 A5                   Am7
So who...               are you?

A5           Am7 A5                   Am7
Yeah who...           are you?

Am              Am9       *Am                                   **Am/F#          Am/F
Keep  you  in             the  dark,  you know they all...        pretend.

[Chorus x2]
A5  
What if I say I'm not like the others?
                                                            F#5
What if I say I'm not just another,  one of your plays?  You're the pretender...   
F5
What if I say I will never surrender?

D5   E5    F#5   G5
Ooooohhhhh…

[x2]
What if I say I'm not like the others?
(Keep     you     in       the           dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You        know    they   all...      pretend)
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?


So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
