[Verse]
Am                      E               Am                      E
The first time that he came to me I was young boy little did I not believe
        Am                         E                       Am      Dm E
I had a hole in my heart and I was looking for the missing piece
Am                  E                    Am                        E
The next time I was privy to their dirty secrets, all their little hidden clues
           Am                   E                         Am   Dm E
And when I added it up I knew a little but a little won't do

[Pre-Chorus]
Dm                    E                 Am      Dm E Am         Dm E
Can anybody out there tell me something true
Dm                        E             Am      Dm E Am         Dm E
Preferably something that no one can dispute
Dm                        E
When everybody's spilling life-long secrets
G                         E                      E E
I'm betting safely on the man who will keep his
(E)                     E E
Despite his weakness
(E)            E x            Am
He'll take his secrets to the grave

[Chorus]
(Am)       C                 F           C
I took the medicine, but the pills won't work
    F                   C           G                  F
The pills they don't do anything but rearrange all the littlest things
    Am       C                   F         C
And I know a little bit but that bit won't do
    F               C
The bit I know is irrelevant 
       G                  F                E7
So the songs I sing are irrelevant too and oh

[Verse]
Am                                 E                     Am
And though I know it'll never ever come to this I have a secret
         E                     Am                E                        Am      Dm E
And that secret is there was a lie that I told myself 'till it became the truth
    Am                      E               Am
And rest assured there is a plan B on my mind
                  E                           Am
If all the webs I weave should ever come to unwind
         E                         Am      Dm E
But if I won't well I've plenty of time

[Pre-Chorus]
Dm                    E                 Am      Dm E Am         Dm E
Can anybody out there tell me something true
   Dm                     E             Am      Dm E Am         Dm E
Preferably something that no one can dispute
Dm                        E
When everybody's spilling life-long secrets
G                         E                      E E
I'm betting safely on the man who will keep his
(E)                     E E
Despite his weakness
(E)            E x            Am
He'll take his secrets to the grave

[Chorus]
(Am)       C                 F           C
I took the medicine, but the pills won't work
    F                   C           G                  F
The pills they don't do anything but rearrange all the littlest things
    Am       C                   F         C
And I know a little bit but that bit won't do
    F               C
The bit I know is irrelevant 
     G                    F                C
So I guess this song is irrelevant too and...

[Bridge]
(C)     G          Am   F       C
We will leave this all ... behind
(C)         G            Am    F       C
So get your fill while you're ... alive
(C)    G         Am                 F                   C
And I don't know where the lies end and the truth begins
(C)             G                  Am                     F                E7 ... E7 G
Don't listen to anyone telling you anything is the truth, it's all relative

Am*             C* E*
I still believe in mysteries
Am*              C*  E       Am
And all that lies in reveries
(Am)     C              Dm     E              Am
     And though they'll lay my body in the ground
(Am)   C       Dm    F      E7
     I plan to never settle down

 [end solo]
               Am            E               Am          E             Am               E

The 'E''s need to be E minors. Please change this, thank you.
