*  *  G5  G5  *  *  A5  A5 | Em5   Em5   Em5 / F5 \ Em5   |
Someone'round me    just a   step  be----hind....
*  *  D5  D5  *  *  D5  D5 | *  *  Em5 Em5  *  *  Em5 Em5 |

*  *  G5  G5  *  *  A5  A5 | Em5   Em5   Em5 / F5 \ Em5   |
Walls are   shaking and thrr clos--ing   in......

Verse 2:

D5*           Em5*
Too fast or a bit too slow
G5*         A5*             Em5*       (F5)
Paranoid of people and it's starting to show
D5*          Em5*
One guy that I can't shake
G5*         A5*           Em5*   (F5)
And over my shoulder is a big mistake

Chorus:

Em5            C5     G5         D5
Sitting on the bed or lying wide awake
        Em5          C5            G5              D5
There's demons in my head and it's more than I can take
Em5            C5         G5               D5
Think I'm on a roll but I think it's kinda weak
Em5          C5        G5        D5         D5 (start verse here, no chorus extension) 
Saying all I know is I gotta get away from (me)

D5*    Em5*    G5* A5* Em5* (F5)
me.
D5*    Em5*    G5* A5* Em5* (F5)

D5*                  Em5*
I tell you something just ain't right
G5*            A5*          Em5*     (F5)
My head is all loose but my shoes are tight
D5*                 Em5*
Avoiding my friends they all bug
G5*            A5*            Em5*    (F5)
Life is like a riddle and I'm really stumped

Verse 4:

D5*            Em5*
If you reason, don't you know
G5*         A5*       Em5*        (F5)
Your preoccupation is where you'll go
D5*                   Em5*
You're being followed look around
G5*          A5*             Em5*    (F5)
It's only my shadow creepin' on the ground

Chorus:

Em5                 C5     G5         D5
See you in your the bed or lying wide awake
      Em5           C5            G5              D5
This dream is in my head and it's more than I can take
Em5            C5         G5               D5
Think I'm on a roll but I think it's kinda weak
Em5          C5        G5        D5         Em5 (start chorus extension) 
Saying all I know is I gotta get away from (me)

Em5            C5     G5         D5
Sitting on the bed or lying wide awake
