Intro:
Guitar 1 plays rhythm figure 1 twice
Guitar 2 plays Fill 1 the first time through. The second time,
        the band enters and guitar 2 plays Riff 1


Verse: w/ rhythm figure 1 twice

there's almost nothing left
you eat my kind for breakfast
what did i expect
                      * w/ Fill 1
to come here and find anyone?
find open arms to greet me
and friends to feed me
i sicken myself so much
and you eat my kind for breakfast

* w/ Fill 2
you eat my kind

Both guitars play these chords. Guitar 1 strums, guitar 2 holds them


Fmaj7add4                   Gadd6
whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me

Em                            Cmaj7/E
whenever i let my guard down, whatever i was ignoring

whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me
whatever i have been given, whatever i have been

*With Rhythm figure 1 and Riff 1

Verse:
seeing myself this way
i am a monster i believe
and seeing is believing

         * (w/ Fill 3)
is there no doubt left
when i wake up i poison myself
amd poison leaves no appetite
i sicken myself so much

  * (w/ Fill 2)
i sicken myself so

Bridge: (Guitar 2 tacet, Guitar 1 plays chords)

    Am G            Em        F
