The Killing Type

	  		
                         C       Em 
I wouldn't kill to win a war 
                            C       Em 
I don't get what they do it for 
                      C       Em 
It's all so terribly vague 
                          D 
I see the pictures from a thousand years of battle 
                        C       Em 
And I think it's such a bore 
                          C       Em 
I walk New Orleans with a knife 
                          C       Em 
Like Mackie hidden out of sight 
                          C       Em 
But I'd be useless if they jumped 
                           D 
I'm really not the killing type 

A5 
I'm not the killing type 
I'm not the killing type 
I'm not, I'm not 
I'm not the killing type, I'm not 

                           C      Em 
I've got a picture of your mum 
                            C       Em 
Before the war when she was young 
                            C       Em 
She's got an etching to her right 
                              D 
I think it's funny that she's looking to the left and it's her son 
                           C       Em 
I wouldn't kill to get you back 
                         C       Em 
And I've officially been asked 
                          C      Em 
I couldn't kill to save a life 
                          D 
I'd rather die a peaceful piece of shit-bait, shame-filled coward, thanks 

A5 
I'm not the killing type 
I'm not the killing type 
I'm not, I'm not 
I'm not the killing type, I'm not 

                             C       Em 
But I would kill to make you feel 
                              C       Em 
I don't mean kill someone for real 
                          C       Em 
I couldn't do that, it is wrong 
                      A5 
But I can say it in a song, a song, a song 
   
                  C 
And I'm saying it NOW 
              Em7 
I'm saying it SO 
                  D                                   A5 
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else would know 
              C 
I'm saying it NOW 
              Em7 
I'm saying it SO 
                  D                                  A5 
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else will know, know, know, know 

C 
I just can't explain how good it feels 
D 
I just can't explain how good it feels 
C 
I just can't explain how good it feels 
D 
I just can't describe 

                          C        Em 
I once stepped on a dying bird 
                        C 
It was a mercy killing, I couldn't sleep for a week 
Em 
I kept feeling its breaking bones 
  C 
I heard 
Em                           C 
   That if you see a star at night 
Em                             C 
   And the conditions are just right 
Em                           C 
   And you are standing on a cliff 
Em                                  D 
   Then you can close your eyes and make a wish, and take a step, and change somebody's life 

A5 
I'm not the killing type 
I'm not the killing type 
I'm not, I'm not 
I'm not the killing type, I'm not 

                            C       Em 
But I would kill to make you feel 
                              C       Em 
I'd kill to move your face an inch 
                       C 
I see you staring into space 
                        D 
I wanna stick my fist into your mouth and twist your arctic heart 

                             C       Em 
Yes, I would kill to make you feel 
                              C       Em 
I don't mean kill someone for real 
                          C       Em 
I couldn't do that, it is wrong 
                      A5 
But I can say it in a song, a song, a song 
        
                  C 
And I'm saying it NOW 
              Em7 
I'm saying it SO 
                  D                                   A5 
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else would know 
              C 
I'm saying it NOW 
              Em7 
I'm saying it SO 
                  D                                   A5 
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else would know, know, know, know 

C 
I just can't explain how good it feels 
D 
I just can't explain how good it feels 
C 
I just can't explain how good it feels 
D 
I just can't describe, -ibe, -ibe 

Em 
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE 
A5 
I'm not the killing type
