[B]                                     
[B]Sitting here, staring out the [F#/E]window
Traffic always [E]makes me feel like I'm [G]coming [B]home
[B]Cold blood bleeding still at least I'm [F#/E]breathing
Patiently waiting [E]clinging on to my [G]mobile [B]phone
[G]Cracked skull with a creepy mind in[B]side
[G]I'm planning the greatest of es[B]capes, you know
[G]Patiently waiting in the [B]line
[G]Soon I'm gonna stand up
[A]Yeah, I'm gonna rear up and
[B]There's no es[F#/E]cape. Lonely [E]pla-[G]net [B]
[B]Oh, it's too [F#/E]late. Lonely [E]pla-[G]net [B]
[B]So la la la, la la la la [F#/E]la la
La la la la [E]la la la la [G]la la [B]la
[B]Cold blood bleeding, still at least I'm [F#/E]breathing
Patiently waiting [E]soon I'm gonna [G]take con[B]trol
[G]Cracked skull with a creepy mind in[B]side
[G]I'm planning the greatest of es[B]capes
[G]Patiently waiting in the [B]line
[G]Soon I'm gonna stand up
[A]Yeah, I'm gonna rear up and
[B]There's no es[F#/E]cape. Lonely [E]pla-[G]net  [B]
[B]Oh, it's too [F#/E]late. Lonely [E]pla-[G]net[B]
