[Intro]

F  G  F  G  *Dead Strum*
F  G  Am*  E5/G#
 

[Verse 1]

N.C.
Holt's above my hideout
N.C.
I dug this hole beneath the floorboards
N.C.
Buzzing bad and locked in
N.C.
Try to not recall
 
F                Am
Counting numbered days
          G                F
From the wheel we cried to clutch
            F              Am
Looking for some inspired land
          Gm*        D5/F#               Riff 1*
But all I found were empty cans and cigarette butts


[Mid-Verse Riff]

Lining dirty parking lots in Ottawa
(Glazed eyes, trying to rub away at the sketches of the...)
Daytime
When every second of sun's the same
           G (palm mute)
What's the point of staying awake?


[Fill]

F  Am  G  F
F  Am  Gm*  D5/F#


[Verse 2]

     F (palm mute)           
Your hands are out and I see
       Am (palm mute)                        Gm* (palm mute)     
You're asking me for a vowel but I am weak and I am stubborn
                     G7m (palm mute)
So I'll say "This is all I have right now"
      E5/G# (palm mute)
But I want to make something good
  Am* (palm mute)
I want to make something better
               F (palm mute)
Something that cannot leave the ground
           F (let ring)
Unless we lift it up together


[Chorus]

C                                G
Where I want to be still seems a thousand miles away
    Am                                      F
But pretending we feel safe right here gets harder every day
       C
It's a note to self mislaid
     G                               Am
You ate the words you always used to say
      G               F
There will be no more fucking around today


[Breakdown]

*let each chord ring except the E. I quickly transition from E to Gm when I play this* 

Am  F  E   Gm*  Gm*  F  E   Gm*


[Verse 3]

Am                   F                G              F
Drunk and worthless, spewing bullshit all across the stage
               Am              F
Wake up and we find new hiding places
       G              F
Trying desperately to escape
    G              Am*     B*
The glare from our stupid, spineless
(I don't believe you, you're all the same)
C*         G*       C*            G
Words just whining, every fucking day
F         
What do I really want to say?


[Chorus]

N.C.                              G
Where I want to be still seems a thousand miles away
    Am                                      F
But pretending we feel safe right here gets harder every day
       C
It's a note to self mislaid
     G                               Am
You ate the words you always used to say
      G               F
There will be no more fucking around today
