(Keep repeated. Later on the A5 and C5 chords are palm-muted.)
Morning always seems too stale to justify
Lament blossoms, hours minutes of our lives
Broken thoughts run through your empty mind
At least a beaten dog knows how to lie
[CBORUS] 
[G5]I feel like I'm [D5]missing [F5]pieces of [C5]sleep,[B5]
[G5]My memory [D5]fades to a [F5]pale land[C5]scape,[B5]
[G5]You were an ex[D5]tinction [F5]a desert [C5]heat,[B5]
[G5]A blind ill[D5]ness [F5]of my anxie[C5]ty.[B5]
[VERSE 2] 
Endless hours in bed, no peace, in this mind
No one knows the hell where innocence dies
Fragments crawling like cobwebs on stone
Blows away the safety only a sleeping pill knows
REPEAT CHORUS
