There were chords up here in the wrong key, this is how they play it on the album, and I 
included tabs at the bottom, enjoy.

INTRO: (w/ lead)   C  Em  Am   x2

C  Em  Am
C  Em  G    x2

VERSE:
C                             Em                   F               C
We stumbled and stared at the carnival lights that lit up New York City,
       F          C                 G              Am
From a rooftop in Brooklyn that was covered in bad graffiti.
C                Em                 F                       C
And then I let a thousand splinters pierce right through my spoiled liver,
F      C                     G
Or whatever that was left of it.

LEAD PART:
C   Em   F   C   F   C   G     x2

VERSE:
C                            Em          F               C
'Cause I've cursed my lonely memory with picture-perfect imagery.
F             C              G                  Am
Maybe I'm not dying I'm just living in decaying cities,
C                      Em              F                  C
But I'm still healthy, I'm still fine, I've been spending all my time
F    C             G
  reading the obituaries.


INTERLUDE:
C  G    x3


CHORUS:
C
But I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.
F
I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.
C
I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.
F
I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.


BRIDGE:
F       C       G             Am
'Cause I am the shadow of the waxwing slain
F     C    G                Am
I felt the false azure from windowpanes
F   C     G                  Am           F
I am just freaking out, yeah I'll be fine.


CHORUS:
C
But I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.
F
I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.
C
I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.
F
I will fuck this up, I fucking know it.

End on C
