[Verse]
 C  
Made my peace with it

With the higher power

The years in the spotlight

Were good to me now
                      
But in comes the chance of a lifetime

To quietly see myself out
           C   
When the place was alive with it

And thick with drums

And you’d barely believe in

What I would become and
The coldest receptions would await me away
       
And at home

[Verse]
     C 
The seven inside

Would wait in wild disdain
 C          
Give it unkindly to my face
          C   
But the drain at the start pierced

The veil of the artifice

But I was too young to restrain
  C    
(Mmm)

‘Cos every star fire of invention thinks

That they are misunderstood
 C   
(Mmm)

But in the crossfire of resentment I was

Giving back when I could
      C 
But chemical highs and clear blue skies await
                    
Honey gold lightness in my face
  C   
Couldn’t take it farther

If I strained it any harder but I got

No right to complain

[Pre-Chorus]
  C 
(Gimme some time)

To work out my feelings
  C
(Gimme some time)

I’ll define what I need
  C 
(Gimme some time)

‘Cos it’s a plain and indestructible thing

That you don’t get **** for free

Uh- uh

[Chorus]
C                         F
..I’m only in it for the money
C                           G 
..I’m only in it for the change
Am                        G  
..I’m not in it for the glory
        Dm
I’m not in it for the friends
              
With the form or the fame
     F                                 
The innocence died in waves of quiet things
 Am                                G
Nothing feels right or quite the same
      Dm                          
It’s great at the start but in the end at the heart
Em       F                    
It’s a job and a choice that I made
    Dm                              
I strayed into darkness the day after Armistice
   F                    
Strayed into darkness and I stayed
       Dm                        F         
Went straight into darkness the day after Armistice Day

[Verse]
  C                             
Send my regards to the shapers of the industry
             
It’s highly unlikely they’ll be as blatant as that
       C       
I got love for the theorists and the punks and the idealists

But let’s be honest, I’m only in it for the cash
       C     
Now I live by a motto, just like Assou- Ekotto

And it’s “**** you and pay me”, it’s a line I respect
     C               
A below average shooter, I’m hardly Batistuta
 
But the vision and motivation? - I get

[Chorus]
C                         F
..I’m only in it for the money
C                           G 
..I’m only in it for the change
Am                        G  
..I’m not in it for the glory
        Dm
I’m not in it for the friends
              
With the form or the fame
     F                                 
The innocence died in waves of quiet things
 Am                                G
Nothing feels right or quite the same
      Dm                          
It’s great at the start but in the end at the heart
Em       F                    
It’s a job and a choice that I made
    Dm                              
I strayed into darkness the day after Armistice
   F                    
Strayed into darkness and I stayed
       Dm                        F         
Went straight into darkness the day after Armistice Day

[Verse]
        F                     G
And I feel the worse for the ones who love
         Em                    Dm
The ungrateful bastard I’ve become
       F                     G
They shouldn’t have to love me
               C
If they don’t want
         F                G
I been working hard and saving face
         Am                 Em  
But I’ve not been in the greatest place
 Dm               G 
Think I will get better
    C 
I dunno

[Outro]
             F                    G
When I was bright and young and full of ****
       Em                   F  
I was happy in the midst of it
                       G              C 
Anyway I’ll tell the guys you said hello
