[Verse 1]

   Em7        Cadd9              G
My demons are begging me to open up my mouth
  Em7         Cadd9               G
I need them mechanically make the words come out
     Em7       Cadd9               G
They fight me, vigorous and angry, watch them pounce
  Em7      D                          Cadd9
Ignite me, licking up the flames they bring about


[Pre-Chorus 1]

Em7          D                  Cadd9
   I sold my soul to a three-piece
                     Em7
And he told me I was holy
            D               Cadd9
He's got me down on both knees

But it's the devil that's trying to


[Chorus 1]

Em7           Cadd9
Hold me down, hold me down
G
Sneaking out the back door, make no sound
Em7           Cadd9
Knock me out, knock me out
G
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for


Em7           Cadd9
Hold me down, hold me down
G
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
Em7           Cadd9
Knock me out, knock me out
G
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for


[Verse 2]

Em7      Cadd9                  G
Selfish, taking what I want and call it mine
    Em7       Cadd9                G
I'm helpless, clinging to a little bit of spine
     Em7      Cadd9                  G
They rush me, telling me I'm running out of time
     Em7       D                   Cadd9
They shush me, walking me across a fragile line


[Pre-Chorus 2]

Em7          D                  Cadd9
   I sold my soul to a three-piece
                     Em7
And he told me I was holy
            D               Cadd9
He's got me down on both knees

But it's the devil that's trying to


[Chorus 2]

Em7           Cadd9
Hold me down, hold me down
G
Sneaking out the back door, make no sound
Em7           Cadd9
Knock me out, knock me out
G
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for


Em7           Cadd9
Hold me down, hold me down
G
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
Em7           Cadd9
Knock me out, knock me out
G
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for


[Bridge]

Em7  D           Cadd9
       Hold me down now
                 Em7    
       Hold me down now
     D           Cadd9
       Hold me down


[Outro]

Em7          D                  Cadd9
   I sold my soul to a three-piece
                     Em7
And he told me I was holy
            D               Cadd9
He's got me down on both knees

But it's the devil that's trying to
