Ab m    B

Verse 1:
F#                    B           F#
The litebrite's now black and white
           Ab m                      Eb m
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Bb m                 B
Pitch burning on a shining sheet
Ab m                       B
The only maker that you'd want to meet
Eb m                B        F#
The dying man in a living room
        Ab m            Eb m
Whose shadow paces the floor
Bb m                   B
He'll take you out any open door

Chorus:
Ab m            B
This is not my life
             F#
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Ab m               B
It's not what I'm like
             F#                  Eb m
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Ab m                     B
Who couldn't get things right
   F#                  Eb m
A fond farewell to a friend

Ab m     B

Verse 2:
F#                     B        F#
He said really I just wanna dance
         Ab m                        Eb m
Good and evil matched perfect it's a great romance
Bb m                   B
I can deal with some psychic pain
Ab m                   B
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Eb m                B        F#
Veins full of disappearing ink
Ab m             Eb m
Vomiting in the kitchen sink
Bb m                    B
Disconnecting from the missing link

Chorus:
Ab m            B
This is not my life
             F#
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Ab m               B
It's not what I'm like
             F#                  Eb m
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Ab m                     B
Who couldn't get things right
   F#                  Eb m
A fond farewell to a friend

Ab m     B

Verse 3:
F#            B        F#
I see you're leaving me
Ab m                   Eb m
And taking up with the enemy
Bb m                     B
The cold comfort of the in between
Ab m                  B
A little less than a human being
Eb m                  B        F#
A little less than a happy high
Ab m                 Eb m
A little less than a suicide
Bb m                      B
The only things that you really tried

Chorus:
Ab m            B
This is not my life
             F#
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Ab m               B
It's not what I'm like
             F#                  Eb m
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Ab m                     B
Who couldn't get things right
   F#                  Eb m
A fond farewell to a friend
Ab m            B
This is not my life
             F#                 Eb m
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
