B

B                             F#/E
Sitting here, staring out the window
               E                      G      B
Traffic always makes me feel like I'm coming home
B                                      F#/E
Cold blood bleeding still at least I'm breathing
                  E                 G      B
Patiently waiting clinging on to my mobile phone


G                                  B
Cracked skull with a creepy mind inside
G                              B
I'm planning the greatest of escapes, you know
G                        B
Patiently waiting in the line
G
Soon I'm gonna stand up
A
Yeah, I'm gonna rear up and


B            F#/E         E   G   B
There's no escape. Lonely pla-net
B            F#/E         E   G   B
Oh, it's too late. Lonely pla-net


B                        F#/E
So la la la, la la la la la la
            E           G     B
La la la la la la la la la la la
B                                       F#/E
Cold blood bleeding, still at least I'm breathing
                  E              G       B
Patiently waiting soon I'm gonna take control


G                                  B
Cracked skull with a creepy mind inside
G                              B
I'm planning the greatest of escapes
G                        B
Patiently waiting in the line
G
Soon I'm gonna stand up
A
Yeah, I'm gonna rear up and
