	  		Intro: C  G 

                F                       F 
It's really too bad that anyone even invented 
                F 
The concept of perfection 
                F 
And don't be mistaken 
      F          
It's all that it ever was 
          F         F 
Just a concept, an idea 
                          F 
A story to scare the children 
                    F 
Of a megalomaniacal pair 
          F                   Am 
Of some smartasses somewhere out there 

    G             Dm 
Spiraling through history books 
               F                C 
Hiding in the subtext in between the lines 
        G                              Am 
Of the single most boring page ever inflicted 
        G                        Dm 
On the temp worker proofreading textbooks 
                      F              C 
To pay off the wasted English degree 
      G 
They earned but never will need 

                 F                       F 
It's really too bad when I opt into paralysis 
                
To protect me from a malice 
                         F 
That I'm not sure even exists 
                    F 
Oh, but what if it did? 
                             F 
Like an ancient evil that showed up at your party 
                                  F 
And it's really bumming everyone out 
                            Am 
Sucking us into an endless void 

    G             Dm 
Spiraling through alternate space 
               F                C 
Hiding in the subfloors and between the walls 
        G                                   Am 
Of the single most boring place that ever existed 
             G 
And that's where we'll live 
       G                             F 
Kept alive by enzymes for a thousand years 
               C 
And while I'm glad you're here 
    G 
I still kinda wish I didn't have to be 

( Am  F  C ) 
( Dm  C  F ) 
( G  C  Dm  G ) 

                 F                             C 
It's really too bad when things start looking good 
                         F 
For the first time in a while 

But I can't see it 
                     F 
Because I live with fear 

Fear is my roommate 

He's an asshole 
                                F 
And he stands in front of the window all day 

To block my view 

                     Am 
Or am I just copping out? 

     G             Dm 
Spiraling through history books 
               F                C 
Hiding in the subtext in between the lines 
        G                                   Am 
Of the single most boring page that ever existed 
             G 
And that's where we'll live 
       G                                 F 
Kept alive on bookshelves for a thousand years 
               C 
And while I'm glad you're here 
                    G               Am 
I still kinda wish I didn't have to be 

( G  Dm  F ) 
( C  G  A )
