You'll Only End Up Joining Them  Kevin Devine

Youll Only End Up Joining Them
by Kevin Devine
capo on 5th fret
there's a riff that i tabed out between the F and Dm relative to the capo
(i noted it)

[C]Tonight I'm posed and popping like a pea[F]cock
I'm pressing fl[Dm]esh, I'm smiling big, my spinning h[G]ead sings "Stop, just stop"
Cause what us[F]ed to calm me do[G]wn
Just rips my l[E]ife to ribbons n[Am]ow
So I keep smi[F]ling, I find my wi[G]ndow and quick cut o[C]ut
The[C]se days my hangman's hunger makes my gut [F]kick
My sleeping m[Dm]ind, could map it blind
A flask, A k[G]ey, A bag, A fifth
I try to [F]will myself away[G]
While shouting[E] habits plead their cas[Am]e
So when the [F]sun sears through my e[G]yes
My beggar's b[E]rain can't compro[Am]mise
I splash cold [F]water, I draw the [G]curtains, I stay ins[C]ide
C7 E7 Am G F(riff)Dm
And I can't say that it's a sickness, more like a stranger I ask in
And later r[C7]ealize, was a s[E7]trangler
Am G F(riff)Dm
Slipping nooses in my den
But I was [F]lonely so I [G]asked him, "*Could* you [E]tie that one on [Am]me?"
It wasn't [F]his fault, I was [G]eager, and I was [C]weak
So as I [C7]inch towards resol[E7]ution
Am G F(riff)Dm
Yea I'm not sure which life feels right
A narrow [C7]noose or the wading [E7]water
Am G F(riff)Dm
The hanging head, sore open eyes
my brother [F]michael he went [G]one way
And at the [E]fork I heard him s[Am]ay
"Don't you [F]follow, don't go[G] making my mis[C]takes"
And I [F]realized what he me[G]ant
Don't kill you[E]rself to raise the d[Am]ead
It never [F]works you'll only[G] end up joining [C]them
end on C
