Dm9  E7  Am
............

[Verse]
   Dm9                     E7
Between the gaps I was swimming laps
     Am
Got close to some epiphany
         Dm9                    E7
I'll convince a friend to join deep ends
           Am
Have your toes touch the lack of cement

[Refrain]
Dm                   E7
Gather to one corner of the woods
          Am                    D7
Echo chambers inside a neighborhood
     F           E7  
And centerfold, humility shown
           Am
You're not as good as what your mama's sewn

[Chorus]
Dm
Aren't you glad that you reside
E7
In a hell and in disguise?
Am
Nobody yet everything
   D7
A pool to shed your memory
F
Could you say you even tried?
    E7
You haven't called your family twice
      Am
I can hope tonight goes differently
                                    Dm  
But I show up to the party just to leave.

[Interlude]
E7   Am   D7   F   E7   Am

[Verse]
    Dm9                     E7
Between the gaps, keep it under wraps
      Am             Dm7 
How I got to some epiphany
          Dm9                  E7 
I'll convince myself when it turns to twelve
      Am                D7 
The photos keep the sentiment

[Refrain]
Dm                   E7
Gather to one corner of the woods
          Am                    D7
Echo chambers inside a neighborhood
     F           E7  
And centerfold, humility shown
       Am
You're not as good as what your mama's sewn

[Chorus]
Dm
Aren't you glad that you reside
E7
In a hell and in disguise?
Am
Nobody yet everything
   D7
A pool to shed your memory
F
Could you say you even tried?
    E7
You haven't called your family twice
      Am
I can hope tonight goes differently
                                    F 
But I show up to the party just to leave.

[Bridge]
Ebm
Pulling back I tried to find
    F7
The point of wasting precious time
   Bbm
I sip and toast to normalcy
Eb/G
A fool's way into jealousy
   F#
I mock and imitate goodbyes
F
When I know that I can't deny
Bbm
That I'll be here forever while
  Eb/G
I show up to the party just to leave
