*My Suicide Note* (Lord)

(use pedal tones on the low E, B, and high E srtings around the power chords being played)

Verse I:
E5 B5
With the images instilled in me at a very early age
F#5 A5
They began to build a list of intrusions that they'd wage
E5 B5
Pushed your need for discipline to split you up in two
F#5 A5
Drained the juice and kept the pulp, ignoring what you knew
E5 B5
Bury you in sand and then desert you in that dust
F#5 A5
Recovering the parts that were discussed
A5 B5
So as you stumble through your time and wonder what you've missed:
E5 B5 A5
You were started on this path before you could resist


Bridge:
B5
Today bleeds in from yesterday and you're waiting back in line
A5
And all along you're in there chasing someone else's climb
C#5
They took away five days a week, next year they'll take them too
B5
Preparing for the work they need from you


Verse II:
E5 B5
I would rather pour my water out onto the ground
F#5 A5
Than let you drink from what I've earned that someone else has found
E5 B5
This is not vestigial, an artifact like love
F#5 A5
It can be decided choosing 'none of the above'
E5 B5
I will start again to find the exit that I missed
F#5 A5
And I will stop what I cannot resist
A5 B5
So if this is what you have for me from what I've had instead:
E5 B5 A5 E5
Then please, please, please, put a bullet in my head.
