Hi folks,
these chords are based on the "Nervous Energies" session.
Check this version out on youtube!
Some chords are a bit tricky, I don't know if they're 100% right or how
they're named correctly but here's my suggestion. Sounds good to me. ;)

1st verse

Am                 Csus2
The first sin that I once told

    G7sus4           A6
Was to my parents at ten years old

F                 Gsus4
I stole somethin' I'll admit it

    D7sus4            F
But not to priests or crucifixes

Am        Csus2
Me and my best friend Chris

   G7sus4       A6
We built our alibis from bricks

F                           Gsus4            D7sus4
And when we were questioned we just read our scripts

Gsus4
"I didn't do it"

   C  Gsus4/F  Gsus4  D7sus4  Csus2*  Gsus4/F  Gsus4



2nd verse

Am                Csus2
The first crime I did commit

    G7sus4              A6
Was mischief night with my friend Chris

   F                    Gsus4
We packed our bags with toilet paper,

D7sus4            F
Bars of soap, and egg containers

Am              Csus2        G7sus4         A6
And we targeted everyone who ever seemed to do us wrong

F          Gsus4      D7sus4    Gsus4
Oh how the time turns on



1st Chorus

    C              Gsus4/F
And maybe Einstein can express

    Gsus4     D7sus4       Gsus4/F
The formulaic mysteries of time

                  Gsus4
But I've lost the time

    Csus2*      Gsus4/F
And maybe Kafka was a writer

    Gsus4            D7sus4          Gsus4/F    Gsus4
But I've been living like my name is Samsa



3rd verse

Am               Csus2
The first night I got my fix

    G7sus4              A6
Was with my brother and my friend Chris

   F                Gsus4
We stole my mothers Smirnoff vodka

D7sus4             F
Mixed it with some cans of Fresca

Am                 Csus2
We learned how our parents lived

    G7sus4             A6
And found that we were good at it

F              Gsus4        D7sus4    Gsus4
Meet me at the bottom or in between



2nd chorus

    C              Gsus4/F
And maybe Einstein can express

    Gsus4     D7sus4       Gsus4/F
The formulaic mysteries of time

                  Gsus4
But I've lost the time

    Csus2*      Gsus4/F
And maybe Kafka was a writer

    Gsus4            D7sus4          Gsus4/F    Gsus4
But I've been living like my name is Samsa



Outro [2x]

           Csus2*
See you in hell

                   Gsus4/F
I'll see ya when I see ya

           D7sus4
See you in hell

                   F
I'll see ya when I see ya


//let Dsus2* ring at the end



have fun! :D
