Bigger On The Inside

	  		

Intro: G C A C 

      G 
You?d think I?d shot their children 
         C 
From the way that they are talking 
            A 
And there?s no point in responding 
          C 
?Cause it will not make them stop. 


         G 
And I am tired of explaining 
       C 
And of seeing so much hating 
       A 
In the very same safe havens 
        C 
Where I used to just see helping 


          G 
I?ve been drunk and skipping dinner 
       C 
Eating skin from off my fingers 
      A 
And I tried to call my brother 
       C 
But he no longer exists 


          G 
I keep forgetting to remember 
        C 
That he would have been much prouder 
      A 
If he saw me shake these insults off 
  C 
Instead of getting bitter 


     A  
I am bigger on the inside 
        C 
But you have to come inside to see me 
A 
Otherwise you?re only hating 
G 
Other people?s low-res copies 


G 


      G 
You?d think I?d learn my lesson 
         C 
From the way they keep on testing 
     A 
My capacity for pain 
         C 
And my resolve to not get violent 


    G 
But though my skin is thickened 
        C 
Certain spots can still be got in 
      A 
It is typically human of me 
C 
Thinking I am different 

  
   G 
To friends hooked up to hospital 
  C 
Machines, two kinds of cancer 
          A 
And there is no better place than from this 
C 
Waiting room to answer 


           G 
The French kid who wrote an e-mail 
       C 
To the website late last night 
           A 
His father raped him and he?s scared 
             C 
He asked me ?How do you keep fighting?" 


        G 
And the truth is I don?t know 
             C 
I think it?s funny that he asked me 
         A 
?Cause I don?t feel like a fighter lately 
C 
I am too unhappy 


        A 
You are bigger on the inside 
         C 
But your father cannot see 
            A 
You need to tell someone, be strong 
              G 
And somewhere some dumb rockstar truly loves you. 


G 


      G 
You?d think I?d get perspective 
        C 
From my few years by the bedside 
      A 
It is difficult to see the ones I 
C 
Love so close to death 


            G 
All their infections and procedures 
        C 
And the will to live at all in question 
A 
Can I not accept that my own 
C 
Problems are so small? 


            G 
You took my hand when you woke up 
           C 
I had been crying in the darkness 
       A 
We all die alone but I am so, so 
C 
glad that you are here 

              A 
You whispered ?We are so much bigger on the 
C 
inside, you, me, everybody 
A 
Some day when you?re lying where I 
G 
am, you?ll finally get it truly" 


A 
We are so much bigger 
     C 
Than another one can ever see 
A 
Trying is the point of life 
   G 
So don?t stop trying 

Promise me.
