Twin Size Mattress  The Front Bottoms

This is for the [E]lions living in [B]the wiry broke-down fram[A]es of my friends bodies.
[E]When the flood water com[B]es, it ain't gonna be cl[A]ear, it's gonna look like mud.
[G#m]But I will help [A]you swim.
[G#m]I will help you [A]swim.
I'm gonna help you swim.[E]
[E]This is for the [B]snakes and the people they bite;[A]
For the friends I've made; for the sleepless nights;
[E]For the warning signs I'[B]ve completely ignored.[A]
There's an amount to take, reasons to take more.
[G#m]It's no big surprise you turned out this[A] way.
When they close their ey[G#m]es and prayed you would change[A]
[E]And they cut your hair, [B]and sent you away[A]
You stopped by my house the night you escaped
[E]With tears in my eyes, I[B] begged you to s[A]tay
You said, 'Hey man, I love you but no f**king way'
[E]I'm sure that we could f[B]ind something for you to[A] do on stage.
[E]Maybe shake a ta[B]mbourine or when I sing,[A] you sing harmonies.
[E]This is for the lake tha[B]t me and my friends swim[A] in, naked and dumb on a drunken night
[E]And it should've felt go[B]od but I can hear the Jaws theme[A] song on repeat in the back of my mind
[G#m]Make sure you ki[A]ss your knuckles before you punc[G#m]h me in the face[A]
[G#m]There are lessons to be learned, consequ[A]ences for all the stupid[G#m] things I say[A]
[E]And it is no big surprise you turned out[B] this way.
The spar[A]k in her eyes, The look on your face.
I will not be late.
[E]I'm sure that we could f[B]ind something for you to[A] do on stage.
[E]Maybe shake a ta[B]mbourine or when I sing,[A] you sing harmonies.
[E]I wanna contribu[B]te to the chaos,[A] I don't wanna watch and then complain,
[E]'Cause I am thro[B]ugh finding blam[A]e, that is the decision that I have made.
Repeat Verse Chords
Instrumental riff:

[E]She hopes I'm cursed forever to sleep on a twin-sized ma[B]ttress [A]
In someb[E]ody's attic or basement my whole life,[B] [A]
[E]Never graduating up in size to a[B]dd another[A]
And my n[E]ightmares will have nightmares every night
[B]Oh, every night. Every n[A]ight.
