Intro
C#5,  C#5,  G#5,  G#5,  F#,  F#,  C#5,  C#5  x2

Verse 1
C#5                    B
   This and that, they must be the same
C#5 		    B
   What is legal is just what's real
C#5		     B	
   What I'm given to understand
C#5	     B
  Is exactly what I steal
C#5			    B
   I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
C#5			    B
   I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
C#5			 B
   I was shocked to find what was allowed
C#5                B                 F#5  
   I didn't lose myself in the crowd

Chorus
C#5                 G#5
Shot (shot) by both sides
       F#5		     C#5
On the run to the outside of everything
                    G#5
Shot (shot) by both sides
	       F#5		     C#5
They must have come to a secret understanding

Verse 2
C#5		       B
   New offences always in my nerves
C#5		     B
   They're taking my time by force
C#5			    B
   They all sound the same when they scream
C#5			        B
   They have to rewrite all the books again
C#5        B
   As a matter of course
C#5			    B
   I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
C#5			    B
   I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
C#5			 B
   I was shocked to find what was allowed
C#5                B                 F#5  
   I didn't lose myself in the crowd

Chorus
C#5                 G#5
Shot (shot) by both sides
       F#5		     C#5
On the run to the outside of everything
                    G#5
Shot (shot) by both sides
	       F#5		     C#5
They must have come to a secret understanding

Instrumental

Verse 3
C#5		   B
   'Why are you so edgy, Kid ?'
C#5		B
   Asks the man with the voice
C#5		 B
   One thing follows another
C#5			   B
   You live and learn, you have no choice
C#5			    B
   I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
C#5			    B
   I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd
C#5			 B
   I was shocked to find what was allowed
C#5                B           F#5  
   I didn't lose myself in the crow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow....

Didn't lose myself in the crowd
Didn't lose myself in the crowd
I was shocked to find what was allowed
Didn't lose myself in the crowd
But I wormed my way
But I wormed my way
But I wormed my way
But I wormed my way
But I wormed my way
But I wormed my way
But I wormed my way
But I wormed my way

C#5                 G#5
Shot (shot) by both sides
         F#5		   C#5
That old ass was doing the shooting
                    G#5
Shot (shot) by both sides
	     F#5		   C#5
We must have come to a secret understanding
