Capo 2nd fret


VERSE
D            G      A         D          G     A       D
I returned a bag of groceries accidently taken off the shelf
           G   A      D
Before the expiration date
D                G      A         D          G     A       D
I came back as a bag of groceries accidently taken off the shelf 
           G            A    D      D7
Before the date stamped on myself


BRIDGE
G                       G/F#       Em                      D/F#   G
 Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket 
                  A
And was everybody dancing on the casket


CHORUS
D                  G                  Em      G            A
 Now it's over I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want
       D      G                Em        C       D   G   A
Or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do


VERSE
D            G       A       D          G     
I will never say the word procrastinate again
     A     D                 G      A       D
I'll never see myself in the mirror with my eyes closed
D          G   A         D                     G       A       D
 I didn't apologize for when I was eight and I made my younger brother 
        G     A        D       D7
Have to be my personal slave


BRIDGE
G                       G/F#       Em                      D/F#   G
 Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket 
                  A
And was everybody dancing on the casket


CHORUS
D                  G                  Em      G            A
 Now it's over I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want
       D      G                Em        C       D   G   A
Or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do


MIDDLE 8
G    G     G/F#   G/F# A  A    A7/G    A7/G
So I won't sit at home anymore and you won't
D/F#   D/F#    D/E    D/E G     G     G/F# G/F#
See my head in the window and I won't be  around
A    A  A7/G     A7/G    D/F#            G           A
Ever anymore and I'll be up there on the wall at the store 


VERSE
D            G      A         D          G     A       D
I returned a bag of groceries accidently taken off the shelf
           G   A      D    G   A
Before the expiration date
D5     D/C       G/B    A         D5  D/C    G/B   A       D5
I came back as a bag of groceries accidently taken off the shelf 
  D/C      G/B          A    D      D7
Before the date stamped on myself


BRIDGE
G                       G/F#       Em                      D/F#   G
 Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket 
                  A
And was everybody dancing on the casket


CHORUS
D                  G                  Em      G            A
 Now it's over I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want
       D      G                Em        C       D   G   A
Or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do


CHORUS
D                  G                  Em      G            A
 Now it's over I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want
       D      G                Em        C       D 
Or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do
