Verse 1:

E A E Up on Scorpion Hill watching life A B Passing me by in the pale moonlight E And I sat there forever A C#m Three sheets to the wind B It's not helping my case The state that I'm in A E But it's not how they told you A E My intentions were good A I was just bursting apart E Like the end of the ark C#m F#m A Holding on to whatever I could
( E A E A ) ( C#m B A )

Verse 2:

E A square of light moves B A Its way through the empty room E F#m Across the stained yellow carpet E B A Like a ghost of myself in the afternoon C Haunting my basement apartment B C I looked in to the mirror C#m A Hanging behind my door B The glass was cracked C And the man staring back C#m A He don't look like me anymore B And if the world is gonna burn C Everyone should get A turn to light it up
( E B C#m A ) ( E B C#m ) ( A E B )
C#m A E B C#m A E B Down and out, I've been on the rocks C#m A E A F#m I've been having some pretty dark thoughts B Cm Yeah, I like them a lot
( E A E A ) ( C#m B A )

Verse 2:

E B Time and time again, well I've tried A And failed to get my act together E Abm And I'll admit lately things A Really went off the rails C I know that you deserve better B C But in the morning, as I was boarding C#m A The commuter train to work B The boss was calling, he said C 'There's been cutbacks and C#m A I'm sorry you're the first' B And If I can't support the two of us Cm How can I support a third?
( E B )
C#m A E B C#m A E B Down and out, I've been on the rocks C#m A E A F#m I've been having some pretty dark thoughts

Bridge:

B And I'm on the brink E Falling deep into debt A Falling deep into drink F#m I can drown those regrets B I don't have to think A E Now I'm working the night shift A E Asleep at the wheel A E I was bursting apart like a flame from a spark C#m F#m Thinkin' 'Jesus, this can't be for real'

Verse 3:

A E My sweat-soaked mattress A E Corner of the room A E Cigarettes and matches C#m F#m In the fading afternoon A And a picture of my kid Yeah, he's smiling E It's the first day of school
Solo E B C#m A E B C#m A E B C#m A E B C#m A
F#m B She said, 'I found the gun E It was buried beneath A Piles of clothes in the room F#m Where your son sleeps B And I can't pretend E To know how this will end'
