Verse

C                       F
Go ahead, go ahead and smash it on the floor
A                               Dm
Take whatevers left and take it with you out the door
Gm                             C
See if I cry, see if I shed a single sorry tear
A                                                    Dm      E       F A
I can't say that its been great, no in fact its been a wasted worried year


Chorus
Eb         F        A#    Am   Gm 
Everybody sees, and everyone agrees
Cm                 F                 Gm             D7
That you and I are wrong, and its been that way too long
Eb            F                A#    Am       Gm 
Take it as it comes, and be thankful when its done
Cm                     F
Theres so many ways to act
Gm                     Am Bb                    Am      
And theres many shades of black
Gm                     Am Bb                    Am   
Theres so many shades of black

Theres so many shades of black

Let it out, let it all out, say whats on your mind
        A                                      Dm
You can kick and scream and shout and say things that are so unkind, Yea
Gm                            C
See if I care, see if I stand firm or if I fall

I think this quiet part has Brendan palm muting the normal chorus chords while Jack plays this

Then goes back to chorusy part.
