Lyrics:

Intro

Verse1:

  C#m              B            Ab                A                           

I'll warn you, if cornered, I'll scratch my way out of the pen

  C#m      B       Ab                A   

Wired, an animal. The claustrophobia begins

C#m

You think I'm scared of girls, Well maybe

But I'm not afraid of you

You want to scare me then you'll cling to me no matter what I do

Verse2:

  C#m        B         Ab              A        

Tell you a secret  They shared a needle once or twice

  C#m            B            Ab            A   

I loved her, she loved me  We slept together a couple of times

C#m

You think I'm proud of this, Well maybe

But the shame you never lose

Infatuated with a lunatic and cornered by the muse

Chorus1:

 B                        C#m                  E    

   And it goes           down every           niiiiiight

   This must be         what jail is really   liiiiiike

And I will scratch my way out of this      peeeeeen,   again

Verse part1

Verse3:

  C#m              B            Ab           A   

     Lonely?        Maybe          Or maybe not, It all depends

  C#m           B            Ab           A   

Your ideal, your image     Your definition of a friend

C#m

If what you're shoveling is company

Then I'd rather be alone

Resentment always goes much further than it was supposed to go

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Verse1 until "an animal".

end on C#m
