During the intro and verse, pull and hammer on the D string for the C and Am chords before transitioning to

For a simpler version, skip the hammers and play F instead of Fsus2.


[Intro] C   G    Am    F   Fsus2
        C   G    F    Fsus2   F   Fsus2

[Verse]
              C                   G
I thought the candle was gonna go out
    Am                       F        Fsus2
The wind was blowing and the door was open
        C                 G               F   Fsus2   F   Fsus2
But the candle never went out, never went out
    C                         G
The wave found its way to the shore
  Am                          F       Fsus2
I thought it was a ripple and nothing more
        C                          G          F    Fsus2   F   Fsus2
But the wave found its way all the way to the shore

[Chorus]
G    Am          F         C
Oooo-oh, I wanna burn this house
G   Am            F             C
  I know, I wanna jump into the fire
G    Am             G#        Am
Oooo-oh, I've gotta tear them down
    F               G
The pinnacles of my invisible empire

[Intro] C   G    Am    F   Fsus2
        C   G    F    Fsus2   F   Fsus2

           C                  G
I know the gamble never works twice
        Am                                F        Fsus2
All the distractions of the table and the weighted dice
        C                     G                     F   Fsus2   F  Fsus2
But the thrill of it feels so nice, you'd do it all again
      C                     G
But I look to the chips I'd lose
    Am                               F           Fsus2
I'm standing on the platform with my neck in the noose
      C                G                 F   Fsus2   F   Fsus2
And I know it's not my time, it's not my time

[Chorus]
G    Am          F         C
Oooo-oh, I gotta burn this house
G   Am            F             C
  I know, I wanna jump into the fire
G    Am             G#        Am
Oooo-oh, I've gotta tear them down
    F               G         C
The pinnacles of my invisible empire


[Bridge]
            Am
And if I do all the things I do
               G
While I tell myself that I'm staying true
               F
No, I'll never stop, you know I'll never stop
                    Am
You know I'll never think about it
       Am
Put an end to all this time
             G
That I would spend with it on my mind
                  F
You know it never stopped, you know it never stopped
                  Am
You know I always wondered about it
  G
I wondered about the wonder

[Chorus + Outro]
G    Am           F       C
Oooo-oh, I wear a rusting crown
G    Am         F         C
   I know this dynasty is falling
G         Am         G#      Am
The crowd shouts for another round,

          F
I see the ruin
    G           F                G         F                 G
The spectacular diamonds buried, icebergs, the minarets, and the marketplaces
    F                G
The signal fires of my invisible empire

[Outro]
 C   G    Am    F   Fsus2
 C   G    F    Fsus2   F   Fsus2
 C   G    Am    F   Fsus2
 C   G    F    Fsus2   F   Fsus2   C
