"How To Play Dead" - Sleater-Kinney
Sleater-Kinney (1995)

Note: I used power chords for this. The 'F# G F#' bit in the verses is played higher
on the fret board (1st finger on 5th string in fret 9 for F#, in fret 10 for the G).
Please comment if this is unclear or if there's a mistake!

[Verse 1]

A                  G
  You want to try?
A                  G
  Go ahead and try
A                G
  You want it now
A                         C# D C#
  But that's the way it goes

D C
D                      C
  Do you want to hurt me?
D C
D               F# G F#
  Go ahead and try


[Verse 2]

A                    G
  You're feeling sick
A                G
  You poor thing
A                   G
  Clean up your mess
A                       C# D C#
  Then I'll suck your dick

D C
D                C
  Didn't I tell you?
D C
D             F# G F#
  It wasn't fun


[Chorus 1]

A G
                      A           G
You want to show me how to play dead
A          G
How to be still
A              G
How to please you


[Verse 3]

A                   G
  If I don't give you
A                    G
  Just what you need
A             G
  It hurts you
A                C# D C#
  I'm such a tease

D C
D                C
  You're just a boy
D C
D                F# G F#
  Who likes to whine


[Verse 4]

A             G
  I'm gonna choke
A               G
  Can't feel a thing
A              G
  You say go deeper
     A              C# D C#
You like it when I scream

D C
D               C
  And then you tell me
D C
D          C
  I'm so good


[Chorus 1]

A G
                     A           G
You want to show me how to play dead
A           G
How to be still
A              G
How to please you


[Bridge]

A            G       F#
  What's good for you
Em
Is not for me
A            G       F#
  What's over for you
Em
Is not over for me

         A
I won't suck your big ego
     G
And swallow all my pride
     F#
I'm spitting out your memory
     Em
And stains you left inside of me

     A
I'm sick of being full 
               G
With what you fed me
What I choked down
F#
Rip it out of me 
          Em
You wanna rip it out of me, yeah


[Chorus 2]

A G
                      A           G
I'll show you how it feels to be dead
         A                G
How it feels to be held still
       A              G
How I wish you were dead
