The acoustic version of this song was not in the right time, so I put chords to all of 
the lyrics and fixed the time. The G chord prior to the Am is more of a quick passing 
chord. Have fun!


[Intro]

F F G Am G x2

[Verse 1]

F
I ponder of something great
   F                           G
My lungs will fill and then deflate
     Am
They fill with fire

Exhale desire
   G
I know it's dire

My time today


[Hook]

F
I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence


[Verse 2]

F                  G
Sometimes quiet is violent
Am
I find it hard to hide it
    G
My pride is no longer inside
      F
It's on my sleeve

My skin will scream
    F
Reminding me of
         G       Am
Who I killed inside my dream
                      G
I hate this car that I'm driving
                       F
There's no hiding for me
                                  F
I'm forced to deal with what I feel
                         G               Am
There is no distraction to mask what is real
G
I could pull the steering wheel


[Hook]

F
I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence


[Break]

F F G Am G x4


[Verse 3]

F
I ponder of something terrifying
F                                    G
'Cause this time there's no sound to hide behind
Am
I find over the course of our human existence
G
One thing consists of consistence
F
And it's that we're all battling fear
     F                                       G
Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here
Am
Oh my,

Too deep

Please stop thinking
G
I liked it better when my car had sound

F
There are things we can do
               F                              G
But from the things that work there are only two
     Am
And from the two that we choose to do
G
Peace will win

And fear will lose
         F
There's faith and there's sleep
    F                       G
We need to pick one please because
Am
Faith is to be awake
            G
And to be awake is for us to think
                F
And for us to think is to be alive
            F
And I will try with every rhyme
     G     Am
To come across like I am dying
             G                       F
To let you know you need to try to think


[Hook]

I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence


[Break]

F F G Am G x 4


[Verse 4]

F
I ponder of something great
   F                           G
My lungs will fill and then deflate
     Am
They fill with fire

Exhale desire
   G
I know it's dire

My time today


[Hook]

F
I have these thoughts
            F
So often I ought

To replace that slot
 G                 Am
With what I once bought

'Cause somebody stole
          G
My car radio
                                F
And now I just sit in silence

Proof that an amazing song can be written with only three chords. Freaking love this song. And the chords are spot-on. Well done, and thank you for putting it out there.
