INTRO
Em      C      G      B7
Em      C      G      B7


VERSE
       Em
Man us kids, we can be so cruel
     C
Teen armies never suffered no fools
    G
But Benny was a sucker
                        B7
Man he never really fit in
     Em
Poor Benny had to do his time
     C
Just breathing was a capital crime
G
Man we made him suffer
                        B7
Benny never really knew why


PRE CHORUS
Em                                   C
 This time I think we've pushed too far
G                             Bm
 This time we've opened up a scar
Em                                  C
 This time we've pushed him to the edge
C#dim                       B7
 This time it's really gone straight to his head


CHORUS
Em
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    C
I think he might've jumped this time
                   G
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         B7
I think we've pushed him way too far
Em
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    C
I think he might've jumped this time
                   G
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         B7
I think we've pushed him way too far
B7
Way too far


VERSE
           Em
So come on Benny step on back from that ledge
          C
'Cause we didn't mean a word that we said
        G
Yeah we thought your skin was thicker
         B7
Than the lines that we fed


PRE CHORUS
Em                        C
 I saw him rocking on the edge
         G
With the years of anger, isolation
Bm
Running through his head
Em                             C
Nah, Benny don't step off that ledge
        C#dim                    B7
For the world will drown in your river running red


CHORUS
Em
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    C
I think he might've jumped this time
                   G
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         B7
I think we've pushed him way too far, no no
Em
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    C
I think he might've jumped this time
                   G
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         B7
I think we've pushed him way too far

            C
He might've jumped this time
               C#dim

this time
