Song 1: Our Perfect Disease
No Capo


[Verse 1]
F#m
We don't admit it but we've never seen eye to eye,
A                          Bm
my heartbeat's moaning and yours is making money
F#m
It's always a shock when old friends pass by,
A                    Bm
but with you it's no death in the family
F#m
Let's not talk about hate when there's hell to pay
A                     Bm
for my cowardness and your bad timing
F#m
We don't admit it but we've never seen eye to eye,
A                     Bm
and it's not through a lack of trying

[Interlude]
F#m A Bm
F#m A Bm E

[Chorus]
                     D
It was the perfect disease we had,
                A            C#
something to argue and scream about
                           D
And you will see about contracting back,
                  A                      C#
and locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
                      D
It was the perfect disease we had,
              A             C#            D
and it hits us like a painful fact
            Dm                   F#m
We all need someone to drive us mad

[Post chorus]
F#m                            A       Bm
Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, wooh
F#m                            A       Bm
Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, wooh

[Verse 2]
F#m
I didn't say it but you never were the honest type,
A                       Bm
you tried to fabricate a bed-time story
F#m
And now I miss those games we had of Jekyll and Hyde,
A                          Bm
ever since the day that we parted company
F#m
Don't send a helping hand I need a farrowing ram,
A                           Bm
to feed the reasons that I miss you so sorely
F#m
I didn't say it but we never saw eye to eye,
A                            Bm
now I can't bear it when equally is boring

[Interlude]
F#m A Bm
F#m A C#

[Chorus]
                     D
It was the perfect disease we had,
                A            C#
something to argue and scream about
                           D
And you will see about contracting back,
                  A                      C#
and locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
                      D
It was the perfect disease we had,
              A             C#            D
and it hits us like a painful fact
            Dm         C#         F#m
We all need someone to drive us mad

[Post chorus]
F#m                            A       Bm
Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, wooh
F#m                            A       Bm
Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, ooh ooh ooh ooh oh, wooh

[Bridge]
F#m                                        A    G
I need you in the TV, I need you on the train, I need you every single which way
F#m                                          A  G
I need you in the mirrors, I need you in my bed, I need you to wreck my head
F#m                                        A    G
I need you in the TV, I need you on the train, I need you just to stand in my way
F#m                                           E
I need you in the mirrors, I need you in my bed

[Chorus]
                     D
It was the perfect disease we had,
              A            C#
something to argue and scream about
                           D
And you will see about contracting back,
                  A                      C#
and locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
                      D
It was the perfect disease we had,
              A             E            D
and it hits us like a painful fact
            Dm           C#       F#m
We all need someone to drive us mad


Song 2: Tokyo (Vampires And Wolves)
No Capo

[Verse]
Am                   C  Dm
We're self imploding
Dm               Em      F
Under the weight of your advice
F         Am      C  Dm
I wear a suitcase
Dm             Em    F
Under each one of my eyes
Am    C  Dm
Finally
Dm         Em      F
I know now what it takes
F       Am C Dm    G
It takes money and aeroplanes

[Chorus]
Dm                    Am
If you love me let me go
Am           F
Back to that bar in Tokyo
F           G            Am
Where the demons from my past
F
Leave me in peace
        Dm              Am
I'll be animating every night
Am                F
The grass will be greener on the other side
F       G            Am
And the Vampires and Wolves
F
Won't sink their teeth
F                            Am    C Dm
I'm sick of dancing with the beast

[Interlude]
Dm Em F

[Verse]
     Am   C Dm
Astrophysics
Dm                 Em      F
you'll never be my closest friend
          Am     C Dm
I find no comfort
Dm              Em    F
in what my mind can't comprehend
Am    C  Dm
Finally
Dm         Em      F
I know now what it takes
F       Am C Dm    G
It takes money and aeroplanes

[Chorus]
Dm                    Am
If you love me let me go
Am           F
Back to that bar in Tokyo
F           G            Am
Where the demons from my past
F
Leave me in peace
        Dm              Am
I'll be animating every night
Am                F
The grass will be greener on the other side
F       G            Am
And the Vampires and Wolves
F
Won't sink their teeth
F                            Am
I'm sick of dancing with the beast
          G        Am       F
No matter how much it needs me
       G              Am     F
Go and follow someone else's lead

[Chorus]
Dm                    Am
If you love me let me go
Am           F
Back to that bar in Tokyo
F           G            Am
Where the demons from my past
F
Leave me in peace
        Dm              Am
I'll be animating every night
Am                F
The grass will be greener on the other side
F       G            Am
And the Vampires and Wolves
F
Won't sink their teeth
F                            Am
I'm sick of dancing with the beast


Song 3: Jump Into The Fog
Capo 2


[Verse 1]
A             Bm               D
What a great achievement it was to get a hotel room this late
A             Bm                    D
I bet they charge by the hour here, the kind of place where you should bring your own UV ray
A             Bm                    D
It's not a big problem with me, love, you don't look that hygienic anyway
A           Bm         D
I'm only here because I want to twist the structure of my average day

[Chorus]
A                  Bm
We feel nothing so jump into the fog
G                           Bm    D
You know that we hit the ground upright
A                  Bm
We feel nothing so jump into the fog
G                       Bm             D
I just hope it's your bones that shatter not mine
A                  Bm
We feel nothing so jump into the fog
G                          Bm     D
You know that we hit the ground upright
A                  Bm            G     Bm D
We feel nothing so jump into the fog

[Verse 2]
A             Bm                 D
What a great achievement it was, to find someone who shirks such little self-restraint
A             Bm               D
I'm a non believer but I believe in these dirty little wicked games
A                      Bm               D
Snakes and ladders abandoned here love, the climb's too rough to slide back down again
A            Bm        D
I'm only here because I feel the day deserves a truly sordid end

[Chorus]
A                  Bm
We feel nothing so jump into the fog
G                         Bm    D
You know that we hit the ground upright
A                  Bm
We feel nothing so jump into the fog
G                         Bm             D
I just hope it's your brains that splatter not mine
A                  Bm
We feel nothing so jump into the fog
G                          Bm    D
You know that we hit the ground upright
A                  Bm            G   Bm D
We feel nothing so jump into the fog

[Bridge]
               Em                   G            D       F#m
I've made some bad decisions, I'll admit that freely
               Em                           G               D       F#m (Fm)
It's just that life tastes sweeter when it's wrapped in debauchery
               Em                          G
So drop your map, drop your plans, drop that five-step program
               D                              F#m
Because there's not an ounce of faith in this leap
               E               G                     D
It's clear you feel nothing so jump into the fog with me

Jump in, jump in, jump in



Song 4: Anti-D
No Capo


[Intro]
C F Am F

[Chorus]
        C      F  Am         F        C     F   Am
Please allow me to be your anti-depressant
   F                  C   F   Am       F      C      F   Am    F
I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

[Verse]
C                           Am
We kick back and let the pills do the talking
C                         Am
People hear a distinct rattle when we're walking
C                                                    D   F
Then there's the extra two stone that's our only guarantee

C                              Am
Our vivid dreams are just like big production movies
C                           Am
They get entangled well within our daily routines
C                                            D     F
So please re-think or use my trademark strategy

[Chorus]
            C      F   Am         F        C     F   Am
And please allow me to be your anti-depressant
   F                  C   F   Am       F      C      F   Am    F
I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

[Post-Chorus]
C F Am F
aaa aaa...

[Verse]
C                       G             Am              G
It's hard to smile when you're as flattened as a pancake
C                       G      Am                 G
The only tears come from our heads when we concentrate
C                                         D        F
Perhaps I'm being unjust or perhaps you agree

Dm                          F
Still I've thrown away my citalopram
            Am                       F
I needed more than what was in those 40 milligrams
    Dm                     F
So cast away with the doctor's plans

[Chorus]
        C      F   Am         F        C     F   Am
Please allow me to be your anti-depressant
   F                  C   F   Am       F      C      F   Am    F
I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

Interlude:
C F Am F
na na na na...  aaa...

[Outro]
Dm                          F
Still I've thrown away my citalopram
            Am                   F
Although I felt as grim as the reaper man
    Dm                    F
So cast away with the doctor's plans
C         F       Am     F           C
Like me


Song 5: Last Night I Dreamt...
No Capo


[Intro]
C Am F Fm x2

[Verse]
C
I'm a good friend and an excellent lover
      Am                                  F
I can fool myself just like no other person can
                   Fm
I'm turning into a twisted man

C
I haven't got any time for selfless deeds
       Am
What I do for you is indirectly for me
      F                                               Fm
I'm a stubborn boy, there's nothing here that you can break or destroy

[Pre-Chorus]
F
Then as I count sheep in my bed
                          G#
A train of worry bullets through my head

[Chorus]
C                            F
Last night I dreamt I died alone
               Am //A B C B on bass
Through all my talk of self-defeat
          G#            G
A fearful bomb ticks underneath
C                           F
Last night I dreamt I died alone
              Am //A B C B on bass
From now I'll curb the cynical speaking
              G#                         G
It seems that dream has sent the biggest chill through me

[Interlude]

[Verse]
C
Someone once said I don't have any feelings
       Am
Well I think that emotions can be misleading
            F
And thinking back
                              Fm
I might have nailed the coffin shut with that
      C
As I tend to cry in a room full of laughter
       Am
Is the cheese finally sliding off of it's cracker?
F                                        Fm
I don't know I'll just prepare myself to let it go

[Pre-Chorus]
F
As I count sheep in my bed
                        G#
A train of worry bullets through my head

[Chorus]
C                            F
Last night I dreamt I died alone
               Am //A B C B on bass
Through all my talk of self-defeat
          G#            G
A fearful bomb ticks underneath
C                           F
Last night I dreamt I died alone
              Am //A B C B on bass
From now I'll curb the cynical speaking
              G#                         G             F
It seems that dream has sent the biggest chill through me
              G#                         G             F
It seems that dream has sent the biggest chill through me
              G#                         G             F        Fm
It seems that dream has sent the biggest chill through me

C                          F
Last night I dreamt I died alone
                      Am      Am/B
And apart from when I lost my virginity
    C    G        G#             G
I've never been know to frighten easily


Song 6: Techno Fan
No Capo


D
East London's not a bomb site
G
It is a treasure chest
D
We use our penguin costumes
G
More than our evening dress
D
She said I should come over
G
Though the music's not my type
D
Don't you know I'd chop a limb off
Bm         A          G
Just to have a good time

D                                                            G
Shut up and move with me, move with me, or, or get out of my face
Bm                     A                        G
I didn't queue for an hour to leave straight away
D                                                            G
Shut up and stay with me, stay with me, or, or let go of my hand
Bm                    A                G
The lasers fill our minds with empty plans
                                D
I never knew I was a techno fan

D     G                  D
Wuuuuuuuuu  Wuuuuuu WuUu X2

D
This is not a weird weekend
G
It's an angry wormhole
D
I'm talking like a city boy
G
And drinking with a northern soul
D
She said I should come over
G
Though it's carnage at times
D
It still seems I'd chop a limb off
Bm         A        G
Before I put up a fight

D                                                            G

We are the 1980s

We are the Detroit lights

I'm in debt to you

But don't feed me plant food

Shut up and move with me, move with me, or, or get out of my face
Bm                   A                    G
I didn't spend 20 sheets and not cut a shape
               D                                             G

East London's not a bomb site
G
It is a treasure chest

We use our penguin costumes

More than our evening dress
D
She said I should come over

Though the music's not my type
D
Don't you know I'd chop a limb off

Just to have a good time

This is not a weird weekend
G
It's an angry wormhole
D
I'm talking like a city boy
G
And drinking with a northern soul
D
She said I should come over
G
Though it's carnage at times
D
It still seems I'd chop a limb off

Before I put up a fight

Song 7: 1996
Capo 4


[Verse 1]
C                        G
I had no cares in the 1990s
Em               D
I knew of no downfalls
C                                   G
Though war was breaking out all around me
Em                         D
My concerns were with prank calls

C
She kissed me on the cheek, she kissed me on the cheek
G         Em                 D
Right in front of the older kids
C                                 G
When our self belief, our self belief
         Em                    A
Wasn't scarred by the modern itch
A
Cos now it feels like...


[Chorus]
C                 G
We kiss with one eye on our TV set
Em              G
And the more I give the less I get
C                 G
Needing fairground rides just to spark a smile
Em                     D
There's little here to miss...

             C
Bring back 1996
G           Em
Bring back 1996
D                               C
So hard to beat those teenage kicks
G            Em    D
Bring back 1996


[Verse 2]
C                                G
We were cloning sheep in the 1990's
Em                     D
We were building telescopes
C                                   G
And sugar filled the whole of my body
Em                   D
As I urged it on to grow

C
I kissed her on the cheek, I kissed her on the cheek
G       Em                 D
Just to impress the older kids
C                                 G
When my self belief, my self belief
        Em                  A
Wasn't lost in the modern glitch
A
Cos now it feels like...


[Chorus]
C                 G
We kiss with one eye on our TV set
Em              G
And the more I give the less I get
C                 G
Needing fairground rides just to spark a smile
Em                     D
There's little here to miss...

             C
Bring back 1996
G           Em   A
Bring back 1996


[Bridge]
C                      G
Stop talking, stop talking
Em                     D
I need a lover not a friend tonight
C                   G
I'm leaving, I'm leaving
Em                       A
I'm not cut out for the modern life

Song 8: Walking Disasters
Capo 1


G                  Am                  Em   C
She used to get her kicks from a fall to the floor
G                     Am
But now she's always wasted
           Em              C
A total looker, but she's jaded
G                    Am           Em C
The kind of shivering wreck that I adore
        G              Am
I can't offer you a rescue
         Em                 C
But I can tell you what I'd do

G                        Am
I'd tell my mother that I love her dearly
Em                       C
And tell my father that I need him back again
G                      Am
And if these words wont drop from your lips
Em              C
I will be your Freudian slip

G                Am
And flowers might wilt when we walk past
Em                  C
And self-help might help when it makes us laugh
Em           Am
Only finding questions in answers
Em                 C
You and I are just walking disasters (x3)

G                      Am                            Em C
She only finds her love in a downtown store
G                                           Am
Consumption makes her stronger
                Em                   C
You're the sweetest anaconda
G                            Am             Em C
The kind of lack of respect that I adore
          G                 Am
I cant offer you a rescue
                         Em                         C
But when you've lost all that you have left to lose

G                               Am
I'd tell my mother that I love her dearly
Em                               C
And tell my father that I need him back again
G                                Am
And if these words wont drop from your lips
Em                  C
I will be your Freudian slip

G              Am                                 Em C
As sharp as a knife and as blunt as a wheel
G                              Am                  Em C
You be my calm I'll be your pneumatic drill
G                           Am                         Em C
And what we'll never want, we'll always need
Em                      Am            Em
Right now we need some pop psychology
C
To keep us up-beat

G                                      Am
So tell your mother that you love her dearly
Em                                        C
And tell your father your won't lock him out again
G                                Am
And if these words wont drop from your lips
Em                  C
I will be your Freudian slip

G                       Am
And flowers might wilt when we walk past
Em                        C
And self-help might help when it makes us laugh
G               Am
Only finding questions in answers
Em                      C
You and I are just walking disasters (x5)



Song 9: Girls/Fast Cars
No Capo

[Verse]
F                          G
We don't care for romance
Dm                         C
Romance or shooting stars
F                    G           Dm                    C
They were last found together in 18th century memoirs
F                          G
We don't care for lovers
Dm                               C
If loving's all that they've got
F                   G              Dm
There must be other hobbies if they want to keep the plot

[Pre-Chorus]
C
I'm a man of simple tastes,
Bb
No whiskey and caviar
C
And what I feel is what I say
I'm not trying to be smart

[Chorus]
F                   G       Dm
I like girls, girls and fast cars
C                                       Bb                Dm
You too will feel this shallow when one melts your little heart

[Verse] (again, better with power chords)
(F not played)            G Dm                     Em
We don't care for new year, new year or fireworks
F                    G          Dm                   Em
If all they represent is how to go from bad to worse
F                            G
Let's not feel disheartened
Dm                                  C
There's no need to change the locks
F                      G                Dm
We'll stick to what we know and what we know is not a lot.

[Pre-Chorus]
C
I'm a man of simple tastes
Bb
No chewing on fat cigars
C
And what I feel is what I say
I'm not trying to be smart

[Chorus]
F                   G   Dm
I like girls, girls and fast cars
C
It's cheap and it's pathetic,
             Bb           Dm
But you cant hate me just because
F                   G   Dm
I like girls, girls and fast cars
C                                       Bb                Dm
You too will feel this shallow when one melts your little heart

[Pre-Chorus]
C
I'm a man of simple tastes,
Bb
No whiskey or caviar
C
And what I feel is what I say
But don't overthink this next part;

[Chorus]
F                   G   Dm
I like girls, girls and fast cars
C
It's cheap and it's pathetic,
             Bb           Dm
But you cant hate me just because
F                   G   Dm
I like girls, girls and fast cars
C                                       Bb                Dm
You too will feel this shallow when one melts your little heart.

My teeth have never looked quite this yellow and my body never quite this fat
G             Am       Em                     C                 A
I'll pay well over the odds just to have some teenage abandoned back
G         Am         Em               C                      A
I hit the ice of the 5th of Jan and I swear it was an act of fate
                C                      Am
But I don't get angry when I'm feeling down
       C                         D
I just take my thoughts into the center of town

[Verse 2]
G          Am      Em                 C                     A

G         Am         Em                    C                   A
And now I pay for it over a counter whilst they become fitness freaks
G      Am         Em          C                     A
My bad habits are taking over all the good left inside
                C                      Am
But I don't get angry when I'm feeling down
       C                         D
I just take my thoughts into the center of town

[Chorus]

Oh take me as I am

Song 11: Valentine
No Capo



F#m                     E                     D
Remember when I found a broken branch
       A                               E         Fm
And shoved it through your bicycle spokes
F#m                               E         D
And how remorse quickly took its stand
       A                                               E
When you hit the deck and broke your nose

D                           C#m  B
You were always the emo type
D                                     C#m                  B
Strained hair matched to a bitter tone
D                                                    C#m  B
Well I don’t care much for fashion or socialites
D                                                   E               C#m
The nihilists always get my vote

D
All she ever wanted was a little direction
A                                     B
All she ever needed was a friend
D
All she ever made were the worst impressions
A                            B
All she ever did was offend
D
You’re the only one to fail my sex drive
D
Will you or won’t you, Valentine?

F#m                     E                     D
Remember when you laid me on my back
       A                               E         Fm
And performed to me my favourite song
F#m                     E                     D
And how I shivered upon its climax
       A                               E         Fm
And those lips still plague my thoughts ten years on

D                           C#m  B
You were always the emo type
D                                     C#m                  B
Strained hair matched to a bitter tone
D                                                    C#m  B
Well I don’t care much for fashion or socialites
D                                                   E               C#m
The nihilists always get my vote

D
All she ever wanted was a little direction
A                                     B
All she ever needed was a friend
D
All she ever made were the worst impressions
A                            B
All she ever did was offend
D
You’re the only one to fail my sex drive
D
Will you or won’t you, Valentine?


D
All she ever wanted was a little direction
A                          B
Far away from this broken sea
D
And all I ever needed was some domination
A                            B
From a girl with low self esteem
D
I think we share the same blood type
D                      A
Will you or won’t you, Valentine?


Thank You!!!
