Since there is yet no original version of the song I based the chords mainly on this live version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WImCFCDlLpI

There are basicly two versions of this song.
The 1st one is the one from the link above,
the 2nd one is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JN8ICrId4OQ
Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the chorus for the second version!

I'd be glad if someone could figure out possibly misheard lyrics. :)

Tuning: Standard
Capo:   3rd Fret

[Verse 1]
          Am
I'm on an overcrowded train,
                        G (bass note)
Fighting an overcrowded brain
              Csus4
And all these bags under my eyes
Hold up my compromise
    Em
And maybe you should bail on everything 'n' anything
Did you not learn anything in school?
Csus4
Could've played by the rules
                                    G (short)
Could be happy in a different way
Am
Struggling with the London rent
'Cause they said that it'd be hard
      G (bass note)
Now I know what they meant
          Csus4
I used to sleep head stuck in the cereal bowl
But I'm here for the music
           Em
I'm now distracted
Can I say what I mean?
Can I mean what I say?
Csus4
  Or can I figure out how I feel
                           G (bass note)
When I wake up every day


[Prechorus]
  Dm                    
I chace everything with the same old logic
G                                    Cmaj9/B (short)
Overanalyzing everything is tragic
    Dm  
And maybe some things they will never make sence
      G                        (Csus4*)       (G*)     |*only when playing Chorus v2 afterwards
And I tackle it all but I'm not making a dent


[Chorus v1]
F
And I think my brain is braking
C               Cmaj9/B
And it's just myself I've been blaming
F Csus4
     Oh, it's draining
C                  Cmaj9/B
I just wanna know why
F           (Csus4)
When I know no good can come of it
C                    Cmaj9/B
I wish that I could just be done with it
F Csus4
     Oh and I'm sinking
C                 Cmaj9/B                  F Csus4
I just wanna know why I'm overthinking
C                     Cmaj9/B
Ohh I just wanna know why
F Csus4 (hammer on/pull of 2nd fret on G-string) Am G


[Verse 2]
       Am
I'm an outcast
To be left behind
                         G (bass note)
I'm an extrovert with an axious mind
      F
I'm a contradiction
What do you do as a dreamer
With a cynical view
          Em
Cause I'd promise if I don't need people
I need people,
To my left, to my right
              F
Every day and night
Every aspect of my life
              G (bass note)
I'm greedy,
So needy
Am
Cause I don't wanna be dependent
                                        G (bass note)
And I hate that thought and I hate that sentence
                  F
I hate that I'm so close to all
There's a danger where I'm gonna pour my heart out to a total stranger
      Em
And I thought "they're not gonna wanna hear
No, they're just there to sip their beer
    F
Not hear about problems to solve and
G
Ugh, this girl's so self involved"
Am
I play it out in my head
                         G (bass note)
Try to make good choices
               F
I heard voices, they come pick one side
                                                Em  
Help I look so stupid sitting there tongue-tied, meltdown
All I can hear is "Code red! Code red!"
F                                   F     G
Got a problem in the control center in my own head

 _                                                                                _
|{additional part for version 2, skip the following prechorus when playing it!}    |
|  Am                                                                              |              
|  Let me try to switch it off, no                                                 |
|  G                                                                               |
|  Run away and forget it all, oh                                                  |
|  F                                   G                                           |
|_ But I tried and I had no luck and my head has swallowed me up                  _|


[Prechorus]
Dm
Facing the world with the same old logic
G                                   Cmaj9/B (short)
Overanalyzing everything is tragic
    Dm
And maybe some things they will never make sence
      G                        (Csus4*)       (G*)     |*only when playing Chorus v2 afterwards
And I tackle it all but I'm not making a dent, no


[Chorus v1]
F
And I think my brain is braking
C               Cmaj9/B
And it's just myself I've been blaming
F Csus4
     Oh, it's draining
C                  Cmaj9/B
I just wanna know why
F           (Csus4)
When I know no good can come of it
C                    Cmaj9/B
I wish that I could just be done with it
F Csus4
     Oh, it's frustrating
C                 Cmaj9/B                  F Csus4
I just wanna know why I'm overthinking
       C                     Cmaj9/B       F Csus4
Oh oh, and I just wanna know why
       C                 Cmaj9/B
Oh oh, I just wanna know why
{end on the last Cmaj9/B if you play the version with chorus v1}



{exchange chorus v1 with Chorus v2 for when playing version 2 of this song}
{and also play Ending v2 to end the song}

[Chorus v2]
                Am                            
My thoughts are spinning round, spinning round
G (bass note) F
My head is going down, going down
         Dm
And so I walk, blink, don't think
     F                               G (bass note)
And suddenly then I'm overthinking again
                Am                            
They are spinning round, spinning round
G (bass note) F
My head is going down, going down
         Dm
And so I walk, blink, don't think
     F                               G (bass note)
And suddenly then I'm overthinking again
Am             G (bass note)
Ohh, I'm overthinking
Csus4                 Dm
Ohh, I'm overthinking ohh


[Ending v2]
G F G   Am
