|A                |E7sus4    E7   |A              |Dv Dv Dv->E E  
   I see myself on TV, I'm a faker,  a paper clown
    |A                               |E7sus4   E7   
It's clear to all my friends that I habitually lie, 
      |A                |Dv Dv Dv->E E
I just bring them down
       |D                  |E7sus4  E7
I claim proneness to exaggeration
       |D                   |E7sus4  E7
But the truth lies in my frustration
   |D                              |E7sus4    E7 |
The children of the night, they all pass me by
       |D                         |E7sus4          | E7      
Have to dress myself in brandy, in sleep I'll hide
           |E7sus4       |E7   
But however much I booze
                  |A    D/A   |A              D/A   |A    D/A   |A   D/A
There ain't no way out            There ain't no way out
       |E7sus4                 |E7                   |A   D/A  |A   D/A
I don't care what you say, boy     There ain't no way out 

[repeat intro]

I lose so many nights of sleep worrying about my responsibility
Are the problems that screw me up really down to him or me?
My ego will just confuse me, some day it's going to up and use me
Dish me out another tailor-made compliment
Tell me about some destiny I can't prevent
And however much I squirm
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
I don't care what you say, boy, there ain't no way out

Won't somebody tell me how to get out of this place?

[bridge]
|Cmaj7                    |                   |Em     |       |
     And the night comes down like a cell door closing
|Cmaj7                 |                         |Em       |       |
     Suddenly I realize that I'm writing now more honestly
|D                          |                              |E7sus4 |E7 |
  While sitting here all alone with a bottle and my head up floating
|D                              |                |E7sus4      |E7
 Far away from the phone and the conscience going on at me and on at me 
           |E7sus4            |E7
But I don't care what you say
                  |A      D/A  |A             D/A   |A   D/A |A   |D/A |
There ain't no way out            There ain't no way out

Now the walls are all clawed and scratched, like by some soul insane
In the morning I hung-overly detach myself, I'll take no blame
I just can't face my failure, I'm nothing but a well-fucked sailor
You at home can easily decide what's right
By glancing very briefly at the songs I write
But it don't help me that you know
There still ain't no way out, won't somebody tell me?
I don't care what you say, boy, there ain't no way out

There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
Give me the key, give me the key, now, give me the key, now, 
Give me the key, oh, there ain't now way out of here

Oh, tell me, tell me, there ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
There ain't no way out
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
