Verse

-6  7  -6  6  -5  -6      -4  -5 -4  -5  6  -6 


I hurt myself today to see if I still feel 


-6  7  -6  6  -5  -6       -4   -5   -4   6   -4    -4


I focus on the pain, the only thing that's real 


-6     7  -6       6   -5   -6       -4   -5    -4  -5  -4   -6


The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting 


-6  -6   7  -6  6  -5  -6      -4  -5 -4  -5  -4   -5   4    4


try to kill it all away,      but I remember everything 
 


Chorus

   7       -6    -6   -5    -5       -5     6      -5        6


What have I become,   my sweetest friend 


7     -6  -6  -5   -5       -5   -4  -5     6   4     4


Everyone I know goes away in the end 


  -5    6      -5       -6   -5  -5    6   6    6    -5    6


And you could have it all, my empire of dirt 


6  -5  -6   -5  -5        6   -5    -6    4    -4


I will let you down, I will make you hurt
