[Intro]
 
G Em C - this three times in arpeggios
THEN
G Em G D Em D C - strummed. listen for the changes!


[Verse One:]
G
I am the pain that bleeds through your temples 

Every morning when you wake up 
Em
I am the boy with alcohol poisoning 
G
From all the parties Chris would throw
 
That summer that they took us in 

Like every other American 
Em
For getting drunk in back of the Lion's Club 
G                                        D
Waiting for the shitty bands to finish up 
                 Em              D
Then some kids played hacky sack 
                           C
While the others just got high 


[Interlude:] 
G Em G D Em D C


[Verse 2]
G
It's not hard to fall for a waitress 

When you both smoke 

Smoke the same cigarettes 
Em
You'll get seated as diners or lovers
G 
You'll get the check as friends for the better 
D                                 Em        
You'll carve your names into the Paupack Cliffs 
           D                  C
Just read them when you get old enough to know
 
That happiness is just a moment 


[Chorus] x2:
    G                        C       G
So I'm marching up to your gates today 
   Em               C
To throw my lonely soul away 
      G          
'Cause I don't need it 
C         G       Em   C
You can take it back 


[Bridge]
     Am               C            G
And they will make examples out of us 
                 D                          Em
Like when they caught you in the CVS parking lot 
       C
But I fed the liars, I fed the liars, I fed the liars
G 
Everything I got 
Em
Everything I got
      C
in my cabinet brain 
     G
Of canned thoughts 
     G
Everything I've got 
          Em
It was everything I've got 
         C
In my cabinet brain, in my cabinet brain


[Chorus] x2:
   G                        C       G
So I'm marching up to your gates today 
   Em               C
To throw my lonely soul away 
      G          
'Cause I don't need it 
C         G       Em   C
You can take it back 


[Outro]
    G                        C       G
So I'm marching up to your gates today 
   Em               C     G    C     G
To throw my lonely soul away 


Em
Yeah I don't need it 
C                    G
You can take it back
