Jean-Paul
Verse: Em D Em Chorus: G D Em
138 BPM

Got a few demons that keep me up at night
got a few reasons why I couldn't fight
got a few ghosts I'm promising not to love
got some hope I'm trying to get rid of

The gun was warm against her sweaty hands
the rain fell, thought I could understand

She keeps her cross right next to her white, red, and blue
he keeps his lies cozy right next to the truth
he doesn't know what he wants, but that hasn't stopped him yet
I got a peacemaker and I am a patriot

The gun was cold against her practiced hand
She took her shot just as history demands
she didn't do it for me, didn't do it for love, did it for the money
she didn't do it for me, didn't do it for love, did it for the country

no sir, I don't know her, at least not since she left my bed
no sir, I haven't seen her, at least not since she left my head
no sir, you won't find her, I have been trying for years
no sir, you can't catch her, she hasn't got any fears

got a few demons that keep me up at night
got a few reasons to avoid the light
got a few ghosts I'm promising not to love
got some hope I'm trying to grab hold of.

The gun was hot against her lowered hand
The shaking was entirely unplanned
she didn't do it for me, didn't do it for love, did it for the money
she didn't do it for me, didn't do it for love, did it for the country


30 Lives
Capo 6 Verse/chorus: C Am F G
Transposed: F# D#m B C#
144 BPM

What if I were born again
and my Zen didn't kick me up a notch
and I won't know what to do without you
so I'll just sit back and watch as

the days turn into nights turn into weeks turn into years
and the stars go 'round and they cut the ground
and the lights all disappear

no matter what I do, it's true, I long to spend another 30 lives with you
yes it's true; I'd love to spend another 30 lives with you
ba ba ba…

As my mood ring turns dark blue
I accrue these yearnings not to die
and I won't know what to do without you
if I'm spawned back up to life

and the days turn into nights turn into weeks turn into years
and the boredom comes and there's no one else who can wipe away the tears

no matter what I do, it's true, I long to spend another 30 lives with you
yes it's true; I'd love to spend another 30 lives with you
ba ba ba…

Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Select Start
Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Select Start

no matter what I do, it's true, I long to spend another 30 lives with you
yes it's true; I'd love to spend another 30 lives with you
ba ba ba…
no matter what I do, it's true, I long to spend another 30 lives with you
yes it's true; I'd love to spend another 30 lives with you

Some Lonely Day
Capo 6 Verse: Am C G Am Chorus/intro: Am G F Am
Transposed: D#m F# C# D#m / D#m C# B D#m
126 BPM

I will take the stage and read from the pages
of an ancient text of truth
Secret plots with a cardboard backdrop
and there's nothing left to lose
and they call your name to accuse and shame
and to tear your costumes off
and failure comes and failure stalks
through the breathing holes in the top

but some, some lonely day
they will break you down and then your mind will sway
some, some will betray
they will mark you out and cut it all away

the opening scene reads like a magazine
full of gossip, lies, and death
as you turn the page, well don't be afraid
'cause you can never cheat what's left
as you near the end
and the glass jar bends
then they're looking for relief
the politician's gone, the magician's run
and the strongman is in grief

but some, some lonely day
they will break you down and throw it all away
some, some cold embrace
it will crush you up and then your bones will splay

so you learn your part and you play it well
but don't improvise or sleep
when the curtains close and you can't go home
you might earn the role of the thief

but some, some lonely day
they will paint you up and put you on display
some, some fallen rays
down from heaven come and melt it all away

Walk on Water
Capo 6 Verse: F C G Am / F C G G Chorus: CGFC
Transposed: B F# C# D#m B F# C# C# / F# C# B F#
100 BPM

I think about when I was young scared and sad as kids can come hiding there under the
table and I wonder what I've done as I turn 21 and I still hide whenever I am able

And I can walk on water like I'm one of the chosen
I can walk on water as long as it's frozen

I can fly so high if I get in an airplane but the buzzing and humming is driving me insane I could climb any mountain if I start out at the top and I could easily survive this massive drop

And I can walk on water like I'm one of the chosen
I can walk on water as long as it's frozen
And I can walk on water like I'm one of the chosen
I can walk on water as long as it's frozen

I was cursed from the start my brain glows in the dark like some star consuming its core
Shaking, cold, and blue as I find out that truth just doesn't exist anymore

And I can walk on water like I'm one of the chosen
I can walk on water as long as it's frozen
And I can walk on water like I'm one of the chosen
I can walk on water as long as it's frozen

SOLO

And I can walk on water like I'm one of the chosen
I can walk on water as long as it's frozen
And I can walk on water like I'm one of the chosen
I can walk on water as long as it's frozen


Losing Altitude
Capo 6 Verse: G C9 Em7 Dsus4 Chorus: G Em C D
Bridge: G / C D11 C D11/…/C D
Transposed: C# F#9 A#m7 G#sus4 / C# A#m F# G#
D F# G#11 F# G#11…F# G#
85 BPM -> Glide to 90 at end

I feel like a planet that hasn't got a moon
come orbit me and light night skies with everything you do
but I won't give up gravity or tides or anything for you
I feel like a pilot who's lost the nerve to fly
I still look up every day and dream of ruling the sky
but I won't give up gravity or tides or anything for you

I'm losing I'm Losing I'm Losing
I'm losing I'm Losing I'm Losing

I feel like a comet that hasn't got a tail
come follow me and cut the sky with your luminescent trail
but I won't give up gravity or tides or anything for you
tonight I'm slowly, but surely losing altitude

I'm losing I'm Losing I'm Losing
I'm losing I'm Losing I'm Losing

like a hypernova that can't explode, I suck you into my black hole
and rip you up and send you back in time to places that have haunted you
and hurt you all of your life

I'm losing I'm Losing I'm Losing
I'm losing I'm Losing I'm Losing
Altitude


The Owls Are Not What They Seem
Capo 2
Verse: Bass plays F# - A - G# - G
(The chords are roughly F#minor, A minor, G# minor, G/G#minor)
Chorus: G D G D G D Em G D G D G D C
Transposed Chorus: A E A E A E F#m A E A E A E D
130 intro/chor 120 verse BPM

Cross your arms child and kneel
don't believe what you feel
because the truth will catch you just wait
born to learn death by rote
with a silver knife to your throat
and the incisions are already made

I won't let you run (fast) I won't let you run
no one can help you escape
I won't let you run (fast) there's nowhere left to run
there is no escape (add a syllable)

I keep my hands in my pockets
and like Goddard's failed rockets
I bring shame in a blaze of fire
and even the songs of the angels blindfolded
call us to rocks to retire

I won't let you run (fast) I won't let you run
no one can help you escape
I won't let you run (fast) there's nowhere left to run
there is no escape

Cut yourself from the ties
and the code of behavior
because no one survives there's only the saviors
but don't be afraid
don't be afraid don't be afraid

I won't let you run (slow) I won't let you run
no one can help you escape
I won't let you run (slow) there's nowhere left to run
there is no escape

I won't let you run I won't let you run
no one can help you escape
I won't let you run there's nowhere left to run
there is never an escape

Tiny Dog
C G
Nobody listens to a word you say anymore
C G
Nobody's got the time to pray anymore
F C
And you look to the sky and fall on your back to the floor
G C
Nobody cries when you pack up and walk out the door

Nobody writes you letters, makes phone calls, sings you a song
Your instincts are going, you forgot what it's like to be strong
And you stare in the mirror wondering if you belong
Nobody will tell you where it was you went wrong


F C G C
And nobody listens
And nobody cares
Nobody stalks you
And blogs your affairs
You want more attention
You're begging for more

G C
Nobody cries when you pack up and walk out the door X 2

You're so very lonely, paparazzi don't wait on your street
You check the magazine stand for your picture week after week
F C
As you reach for the sky you just fall on your back to the floor
G C
Nobody cries when you pack up and walk out the door

F C G C
And nobody listens
And nobody cares
Nobody stalks you
And blogs your affairs
You want more attention
You're begging for more

G C
Nobody cries when you pack up and walk out the door X 2

Love Will Tear Us Apart
Capo 4 Dm C Am G (G C)
Transposed: F#m E C#m B
