To The End

Am
He calls the mansion not a house but a tomb.
Am
He’s always choking from the stench and the fume.
Dm
The wedding party all collapsed in the room.
E
So send my resignation to the bride and the groom.

Let’s go down!
Am
This elevator only goes up to ten.
Am
He’s not around.
He’s always looking at men
Dm
Down by the pool.
He doesn’t have many friends.
As they are
E
Face down and bloated snap a shot with the lens.

Dm
If you marry me,
Am
Would you bury me?
Am                         E
Would you carry me to the end?

Or a mad man and polluted from gutter institutions
C         Fm
Don’t you breathe for me.
C/G
Undeserving of your sympathy

‘Cos I don’t feel bad about it
Ab
So shut your eyes
Fm
Kiss me goodbye
Cm
And sleep Just sleep
Fm                     Ab           C PAUSE
The hardest part is letting go of your dreams

DO VERSE CHORDS
A drink for the horror that I’m in
For the good guys and the bad guys
For the monsters that I’ve been
Three cheers for tyranny
Unapologetic apathy
‘Cos there ain’t no way that I’m coming back again

DO REFRAIN CHORDS-
And through it all.
How could you cry
For me
‘Cos I don’t feel bad about it
So shut your eyes
Kiss me goodbye
And sleep
Just sleep
The hardest part is the awful things that I’ve seen

OUTRO C-Fm-G
Just sleep [x6]

Skylines And Turnstiles

VERSE:
Am
You’re not in this alone
G                  D
Let me break this awkward silence
F                Am
Let me go, go on record
G                 D
Be the first to say I’m sorry
F
Hear me out
Am                G
And if you take me down
D                 F
Would you lay me out
Am                                 G
And if the world needs something better
D                                F
Let’s give them one more reason now, now, now
C        D        Em
We walk in single file
C              D                 Em
We light up rails and punch our time
C               D              G
Ride escalators colder than a cell

CHORUS;
F           Em     Am      G
This broken city sky, like butane on my skin
F      Em      Am       C
And stolen from my eyes
F      Em      Am      G
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
F      Em      Am           C
Tell me where we go from here
F           Em     Am      G
This broken city sky, like butane on my skin
F      Em      Am       C
And stolen from my eyes
F      Em      Am      G
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
F      Em      Am           C
Tell me where we go from here

VERSE : SAME CHORDS

And in this moment we can’t close the lids on burning eyes
Our memories blanket us with friends we know, like fallout vapor
Steel corpses stretch out towards and ending sun, scorched and black
It reaches in and tears your flesh apart
As ice cold hands rip into your heart
That’s if you’ve still got one that’s left
Inside that cave you call a chest (cave you call a chest)
And after seeing what we saw, can we still reclaim our innocence
And if the world needs something better
Let’s give them one more reason now

CHORUS;
F           Em     Am      G
This broken city sky, like butane on my skin
F      Em      Am       C
And stolen from my eyes
F      Em      Am      G
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
F      Em      Am           C
Tell me where we go from here
F           Em     Am      G
This broken city sky, like butane on my skin
F      Em      Am       C
And stolen from my eyes
F      Em      Am      G
Hello Angel, tell me where are you
F      Em      Am           C
Tell me where we go from here
F      Em      Am           C
Tell me where we go from here

Sharpest Lives

C#
Well it rains and it pours
When you’re out on your own

A
If I crash on the couch
Can I sleep in my clothes?

F#
‘Cause I’ve spent the night dancing
I’m drunk, I suppose

G#
If it looks like I’m laughing
I’m really just asking to leave
C#
This alone, you’re in time for the show

A
You’re the one that I need
I’m the one that you loathe

F#
You can watch me corrode like a beast in repose

G#
‘Cause I love all the poison
Away with the boys in the band

C#           D#           G#           C#
I’ve really been on a bender and it shows

C#            D#             G#                C#
So why don’t you blow me a kiss before she goes?

C#
Give me a shot to remember

A
And you can take all the pain away from me

F#
A kiss and I will surrender

G#
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead

C#
A light to burn all the empires

A
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be

F#
In love with all of these vampires

G#
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

(Same as the first verse)
There’s a place in the dark where the animals go
You can take off your skin in the cannibal glow
Juliet loves the beat and the lust it commands
Drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands, Romeo

I’ve really been on a bender and it shows
So why don’t you blow me a kiss before she goes?

(Same as first chorus)
Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me
[x2]

If you would shed your yellow take my hand

So be a joke and look, another line without a hook
I held you close as we both shook for the last time take a good hard look!

I’m not okay.

But you really need to listen to me
Because I’m telling you the truth

Another night and I’ll see you

Another night and I’ll be you
F#
Some other way to continue
F# (STRUM 3X)
To hide my face

F#
Clean me off
Bm
I’m so dirty babe

Only go so far
Bm A  G
Till you bury them

So deep and down we go

I’d live this everyday
