	  		Intro : C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 
 
C5              Bb5 
Sharp and open, leave me alone 
    F5                  G#5 
And sleeping less every night 
       C5                      Bb5  
As the days become heavier and weighted 
        F5                G#5 
Waiting in the cold light 
           C5                             Bb5               F5 
A noise, a scream tears my clothes as the figurines tighten 
               G#5 
With spiders inside them 
                C5                  Bb5 
And dust on the lips of a vision of hell 
                 F5             G#5 
I laughed in the mirror for the first time in a year. 
C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 1) 
  C5                  Bb5                F5       G#5 
A hundred other words blind me with your purity 
        C5                      Bb5 
Like an old painted doll in the throes of dance 
  F5                    G#5 
I think about tomorrow 
              C5 
Please let me sleep 
                   Bb5 
As I slip down the window 
F5                   G#5 
Freshly sqashed fly 
         C5     Bb5        F5        G#5 
You mean nothing, you mean nothing. 
C5 F#5 C5 F#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 3)  
C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*4 (Rhythm Figure 1 twice, then 6, then 1 again) 
      C5             Bb5              F5              G#5   
I can lose myself in Chinese art and American girls 
        C5  
All the time 
               Bb5    
Lose me in the dark 
             F5     G#5 
Please do it right 
                 C5 
Running into the night 
              Bb5 
I will lose myself tomorrow 
F5               G#5 
Crimson pain, my heart explodes 
   C5          Bb5 
My memory in a fire 
                 F5 
And someone will listen 
   G#5 
At least for a short while. 
C5 F#5 C5 F#5 }*2    (with Rhythm Figure 3) 
Eb5 F#5 Eb5 F#5 }*2  (with Rhythm Figure 4) 
F5 F5 F5 F5 F5       (with Rhythm Figure 5 - with every F5) 
       F5 
(I can never say no) 
      F5              F5 
I can never say no to anyone but you. 
C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*4 (with Rhythm Figure 2 twice, then 6, then 2 again) 
C5                Bb5 
Too many secrets, too many lies 
F5                   G#5 
Writhing with hatred 
C5                Bb5                          F5  G#5 
Too many secrets, please make it good tonight 
        C5       
But the same image haunts me 
   Bb5                            F5 
In sequence, in despair of time 
       G#5              C5  
I will never be clean again 
            Bb5              F5            
Touched her eyes, pressed my stained face 
       G#5              C5 
I will never be clean again (with Rhythm Figure 1) 
          Bb5            F5   
Touch her eyes, press my stained face 
       G#5              C5  Bb5  F5 
I will never be clean again 
       G#5              C5  Bb5  F5 
I will never be clean again 
       G#5              C5  Bb5  F5   
I will never be clean again 
       G#5 
I will never be clean again.
