INTRO: D  C#/D  Bm   A  x2 
 
VERSE 1: 
                  G                         D 
This song is for catching the blood you've shed 
                A                           D 
For there's no escaping the quick and the dead 
                 G                       D 
The beggars of madness who fall at your feet 
                    A                      D 
The blind and the damaged have taken the street 
              Em        
You know you talk too much 
G                              A 
Boy, you must be losing your touch 
 
 
CHORUS: 
                    D          C#/D       
For flirting with danger, for feeding the dread 
                Bm                           A      
For walking the streets where angels fear to tread 
                       D                     C#/D 
You got a little bit damaged as the lights went down 
               Bm                               A 
For taking a joy ride through the wrong side of town 
 
VERSE 2: 
For a ticket to nowhere they followed you home 
For pieces of silvers they've shaken your bones 
Remember the madness, the time and the place 
Remember the thunder that rained on your face 
You couldn't talk your way out 
Of a dust-up you could do without 
 
CHORUS 
 
BRIDGE: Em  A   G   D   
	Em  F#/D   A 
Ooh oooh etc. 
 
You know you talk too much 
Boy you must be losing your touch 
 
? CHORUS: 
For flirting with danger, for feeding the dread 
For walking the streets where angels fear to tread 
 
VERSE 3 (to CHORUS chord progression): 
This song is for catching the blood you've shed 
This song is for grieving the quick and the dead 
For the blind and the damaged who followed you home 
For the one-eyed man who wouldn't leave you alone 
 
La la la la till end
