BRACE YOURSELF
From the 2004 release "The Sticky Album"

[Intro]
   E                   A         B

[Verse 1]
E                       A                   B
Sirens and lights going off, but it's still dark.
E                                    A                 B
Streetlight too bright. It burns our eyes and leaves a mark.
     E                               A             B
What happened tonight, with eighteen matches and a spark?
     C#                                    A                B
This story writes itself. It's called "One-Thousand Reasons We Should Be Apart".

[Verse 2]
  E                      A                                B
Retrace our steps here.  Your face was framed inside your smoke.
E                            A              B
Never show fear. So sip your gin and make a joke.
    E                                 A          B
One last swig of beer - and that must be when I awoke
       C#                            A                 B
to the cold, metallic steel of these six full chambers pointed at my throat.



[Chorus 1]
       B                                    A
Like a splinter slice divides us, like it's black and white and gray.
    C#                               A            B
Two seconds could be all we last, so lie in our decay.
       B                             A
Like a fire engine siren screams the songs of our demise -
    C#                                 A           B
You look right down the barrel of your gun into my eyes

[Verse 3]
E                          A                 B
Shattered silence - barrel one twists and we blink.
  E                          A               B
Reactive violence - the silk smoke begins to sink.
   E                              A               B
So still defiance, and all that's left is time to think.
                C#                         A            B
And that's when I awake again to say "it's time to get another fucking drink."



[Chorus 2]
       B                                    A
Like a splinter slice divides us, like it's black and white and gray.
    C#                               A            B
Two seconds could be all we last, so lie in our decay.
       B                             A
Like a fire engine siren screams the songs of our demise -
    C#                                    A              B
The perils of our passioned thoughts fill cold and ashen skies.
C#                                   A          B
Seconds pass but nothing lasts, each day a hero dies.
    C#                                 A           B
You look right down the barrel of your gun into my eyes.



[Outro]
   E                   A         B
