Island of the Misfit Boy  Front Porch Step

I love to sleep cause I pretend that I'm dead,
[E]But I hate waking up cause it's hard to forget,
[Am]That I've lost all control of this life I've held s[F]o dear.[G]
And I[C] wait for the bus but I'm not on the bench,
I'm just[E] spread across the ground making friends with cement,
And I[Am] hope the bus won't miss me when it comes my[F] way.[G]
Well I [C]made a few jokes but they said they weren't funny,
I [E]tried to force a smile but they said it was ugly,
I[Am] tried to make a friend but no one was a friend to [F]me.
Poured my [C]heart to a girl and it went on the floor,
I [E]asked her what she wanted and she said she wanted more,
I [Am]tried to find a lover, all I found was an enemy[F].
I stand in [C]front of the mirror and look at myself,
I [E]don't make a sound by my eyes scream out help,
And [Am]I start to struggle to hold myself back,
From [F]thrusting my head straight through the fucking glass.
And I'm[C] tired of falling for girls that don't care,
And [E]breaking my back to try to make them aware,
That I'[Am]m more than depressed, and there time won't be wasted,
But [F]I am just a broken boy that no[G] one wants to play with.
[C] [E] [Am] [F] [G]  
Now I'm [C]lost in this hole and I'm sure I am stuck,
And I [E]can't run away cause I'm lazy as fuck.
So I [Am]sit on the floor and gather my thoughts,
And they're [F]full of broken promises that only piss me off.
Well [C]I lost control when I only a boy,
The [E]world taught me angst when I deserved joy.
Now [Am]I'm breaking down as I struggle to breath,
Cause I [F]believe in a god who won't believe in [G]me.
[C] [E] [Am] [F] [G]  
I stand in [C]front of the mirror and look at myself,
I [E]don't make a sound by my eyes scream out help,
And [Am]I start to struggle to hold myself back,
From [F]thrusting my head straight through the fucking glass.
And I'm[C] tired of falling for girls that don't care,
And [E]breaking my back to try to make them aware,
That I'[Am]m more than depressed, and there time won't be wasted,
But [F]I am just a broken boy that no[G] one wants to play with.[G]
