    Intro: / G - - / G6 - - / G - - / G6 - - / x2

     

    G              G6                    G   G6

    Sidetracked down the middle
              D (3)                   C (4)

    Never saw it coming, what a surprise
                      G (2)      Em (2)

    It's been a wonder
           G    G6          G   G6

    Electricity tells a story

              D (3)                                      Em (2)        C (2)
    It's a sound getting near as fear is watching you
                                G (2)      Em (2)

    It's watching you close

                 G      G6                  G       G6

    You can fight it, both arms swinging

         D (3)                  C (4)
    Or try to wash it away

                                               G (2)      Em (2)
    Or pay up to the echoes of 'okay'

     

    Chorus:

            C   Cmaj7   C         Cmaj7
    No more,     no more will I see
      D (4)         

    you  No more will I see
    Am (2)     F (2)                C   Cmaj7   C         Cmaj7

    you  No more will I see you

     

    / G - - / - - - / Em - - / - - - /

     

                   G     G6                      G   G6
    You've schemed more than you have

                D (3)                                                        C (4)
    You've borrowed more than you know, Better to steal the crumbs

                                    G (2)      Em (2)
    It makes it easier to go

           G    G6    G             G6
    Paralyzed by conscience

                  D (3)                       Em (2)        C (2)                  G (2)      Em (2)
    Looking for an opening, Apathy as your vocal cords cut out

     

                G      G6          G     G6
    Never thought once to ask

                     D (3)                                         C (4)

    how's the temperature? Too busy with the finer points

                                     G (2)      Em (2)
    Of each struggle we're after


    Chorus

     

    Instrumental: / G - - / - - - / - - - / - - - /

                            / D - - / - - - / - - - /

                            / C - - / - - - / - - - / - - - /

                            / G - - / - - - / Em - - / - - - /

     

          G   G6             G          G6
    So long since I've seen you

                       D (3)                      C (4)
    Haven't we both been living the high life

                            G (2)      Em (2)
    It flows on the bottom

    Chorus

     

    / C - - / Cmaj7 - - / x6

     

    End on C
