Lyrics:
Stuck to the dog, pissin' out both ends
I've got a hundred lethal weapons that I call my friends
Ain't a person on Earth who can take my life
I wish they would so a man could get some sleep at night
My design is a mixture of descent and decay
I see a monster in the mirror f***in' every day
Can a man ever wash his hands of blood?
Perpetual deja-vu, isn't that enough?

        Verse 2

(Play what you would normally play on the first verse - same guitar parts)

Lyrics:

See if you can relish if you close both eyes
Every time I make an issue of it, someone dies
Carried out like a hitman - set in stone
Don't know why I even bother to be left alone
In my opinion it's a self-serving f***ed up phase
Got a picture in my wallet that I keep, in case
I gotta go, gotta split, gotta make it to a higher level than this
But I could be wrong, what I say is wrong, what I really wanna say is...

        Pre-Chorus

(Guitar is the same, and so are the lyrics. This time it leads into the chorus)

        Verse 3

(Guitar is the same, lyrics change though)

Lyrics:

Here's how it ends; just a bit too soon
River deep in all the s*** I let myself get into
Doesn't anybody like it here?
Blank looks, television drama, and no fear
Let another person f*** with your mind
I bet you'll become the person who will f*** in time
Man I just stopped caring, the music is blaring
I feel you glaring, why won't you STOP STARING?!

        Pre-Chorus

(Guitar and lyrics are the same as the previous Pre-Chorus')

        Chorus

(Same guitar as the last one)

Lyrics:

Run! It doesn't matter!
I need all the miracles that I can gather
Run! I can't pretend!
I put myself in idle hands again!

GET THE F*** OFF OF ME!

I think at some point, they play an artificial harmonic as it's ringing out, but I'm not 
certain as to where it is played.



Hope you enjoyed Idle Hands by Stone Sour. I'll see if I can get Black John up at some point.

I'd also appreciate any corrections. Especially for Jim's part in the Chorus, I'd love 
to have that down perfectly.
