A                    E
I hope that our few remaining friends
D                    A
Give up on trying to save us
  A                      E
I hope we come up with a failsafe plot
        D                        A
To piss off the dumb few that forgave us
A                    E
I hope the fences we mended
D                           E
Fall down beneath their own weight
      A                        F#m
And I hope we hang on past the last exit
  D                     E
I hope it's already too late
    A                                          F#m
And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here

Someday burns down
    D
And I hope the rising black smoke carries me far away
                 E                  D
And I never come back to this town again
      E             A
In my life I hope I lie
         F#m
And tell everyone you were a good wife
               A
And I hope you die
          E         A
I hope we both die

A                   E
I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow
D                        A
I hope it bleeds all day long
    A                          E
Our friends say it's darkest before the sun rises
     D                             A
Well we're pretty sure they're all wrong
A                       E
I hope it stays dark forever
D                      E
I hope the worst isn't over
    A                       F#m
And I hope you blink before I do
  D                E
I hope I never get sober
      A
And I hope when you think of me years down the line
    F#m
You can't find one good thing to say
      D
And I hope that if I found the strength to walk out
                              E
You'd stay the hell out of my way
     D                            E
I am drowning there is no sign of land
                       A                   F#m
You're all coming down with me (yeah yeah) hand in unlovable hand
               A
And I hope you die
          E        A
I hope we both die

Any hints on the strum pattern? It's a little tricky.
