 BF#/E
 Sitting here, staring out the window
 EGB
Traffic always makes me feel like I'm coming home
 BF#/E
 Cold blood bleeding still at least I'm breathing
 EGB
Patiently waiting clinging on to my mobile phone

 GB
 Cracked skull with a creepy mind inside
 GB
 I'm planning the greatest of escapes, you know
 GB
 Patiently waiting in the line
 G
 Soon I'm gonna stand up
 A
 Yeah, I'm gonna rear up and

 BF#/EEGB
 There's no escape. Lonely pla-net  
 BF#/EEGB
 Oh, it's too late. Lonely pla-net  

 BF#/E
 So la la la, la la la la la la
 EGB
La la la la la la la la la la la
 BF#/E
 Cold blood bleeding, still at least I'm breathing
 EGB
Patiently waiting soon I'm gonna take control

 GB
 Cracked skull with a creepy mind inside
 GB
 I'm planning the greatest of escapes
 GB
 Patiently waiting in the line
 G
 Soon I'm gonna stand up
 A
 Yeah, I'm gonna rear up and

 BF#/EEGB
 There's no escape. Lonely pla-net   
 BF#/EEGB
 Oh, it's too late. Lonely pla-net
