Lyrics:
Intro
Verse1:
[C#m] I'll warn you,[B] if cornered,[Ab] I'll scratch my w[A]ay out of the pen
[C#m] Wired,[B] an anim[Ab]al. The claustroph[A]obia begins
[C#m] You think I'm scared of girls, Well maybe
But I'm not afraid of you
You want to scare me then you'll cling to me no matter what I do
Verse2:
[C#m] Tell you[B] a secret [Ab] They shared a n[A]eedle once or twice
[C#m] I loved her,[B] she loved me[Ab] We slept tog[A]ether a couple of times
[C#m] You think I'm proud of this, Well maybe
But the shame you never lose
Infatuated with a lunatic and cornered by the muse
Chorus1:
[B] And it goes d[C#m]own every n[E]iiiiiight
This must be what jail is really liiiiiike
And I will scratch my way out of this peeeeeen, again
Verse part1
Verse3:
[C#m] Lonely? [B] Maybe [Ab] Or maybe n[A]ot, It all depends
[C#m] Your ideal,[B] your image [Ab] Your defin[A]ition of a friend
[C#m] If what you're shoveling is company
Then I'd rather be alone
Resentment always goes much further than it was supposed to go
Repeat Chorus
Repeat Verse1 until "an animal".
end on C#m
