Verse 1: *0:32 - 1:05*
[C5]Sharp and open, [Bb5]leave me alone and sl[F5]eeping less every nig[G#5]ht
As the [C5]days become heavier and [Bb5]weighted
Waiting [F5]in the cold light[G#5]
A noise, a [C5]scream tears my clothes as the [Bb5]figurines tighten[F5]
With spiders in[G#5]side them
And dust on the [C5]lips of a vision of [Bb5]hell
I laughed in the [F5]mirror for the [G#5]first time in a year.

A [C5]hundred other words [Bb5]blind me with your [F5]purity[G#5]
Like an [C5]old painted doll in the [Bb5]throes of dance I thi[F5]nk about tomorrow[G#5]
Please let me [C5]sleep as I slip down the wi[B5b]ndow fre[F5]shly squashed fly[G#5]
You mean [C5]nothing[Bb5], you mean [F5]nothing.[G#5]
