[Intro] (single strum)
F     Em
	  Now I lay me down to sleep
Am              C
  I pray the Lord, my soul to keep
F                      Em
 If I shall die before I wake
           Am               C
I pray the Lord, my soul to take

[Chorus]
F           Em                           Am
I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C                          F
I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em                        Am
They talk shit, but I love it every time
      C
And I realize

[Verse 1]
(pause)                         Am
I've tasted blood and it is sweet
               C                      F
I've had the rug pulled beneath my feet
             Em                 Am
I've trusted lies and trusted men
                     C          (pause)      F
Broke down and put myself back together again
                         Em
Stared in the mirror and punched it to shatters
   Am                    C
Collected the pieces and picked out a dagger
F                          Em
I've pinched my skin in between my two fingers
    (pause)
And wished I could cut some parts off with some scissors

[Pre-Chorus]
F                    Em
Come on little lady, give us a smile
      Am                    C
No, I ain't got nothin' to smile about
      F                      Em
I got no one to smile for, I waited a while for
  Am                    PAUSE
A moment to say I don't owe you a Goddamn thing

[Chorus]
F           Em                           Am
I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C                          F
I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em                        Am
They talk shit, but I love it every time
      C
And I realize

[Post-Chorus]
    F                        Em               Am       C
I'm no sweet dream but I'm a hell of a night
         F                         Em              Am       C
That I'm no sweet dream, but I'm a hell of a night

[Verse 2]
F             Em                            Am
 No, I won't smile, but I'll show you my teeth
                     C                        F
And I'ma let you speak if you just let me breathe
            Em                          Am
I've been polite, but won't be caught dead
                      C             PAUSE    F
Lettin' a man tell me what I should do in my bed
                Em
Keep my exes in check in my basement
       Am                       C
'Cause kindness is weakness, or worse, you're complacent
F                      Em
I could play nice or I could be a bully
    PAUSE
I'm tired and angry, but somebody should be

[Pre-Chorus]
F                    Em
Come on little lady, give us a smile
      Am                    C
No, I ain't got nothin' to smile about
      F                      Em
I got no one to smile for, I waited a while for
  Am                    PAUSE
A moment to say I don't owe you a Goddamn thing
[Chorus]
F           Em                           Am
I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C                          F
I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em                        Am
They talk shit, but I love it every time
      C
And I realize
F           Em                           Am
I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C                          F
I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em                        Am
They talk shit, but I love it every time
      C
And I realize

[Bridge]
F            Em          Am                 C
Someone like me can be a real nightmare, completely aware
    F          Em   Am                   C
But I'd rather be a real nightmare, than die unaware, yeah
F            Em          Am                 C
Someone like me can be a real nightmare, completely aware
    F           Em   Am                 PAUSE
But I'm glad to be a real nightmare, so save me your prayers

[Chorus]
F           Em                           Am
I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C                          F
I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em                        Am
They talk shit, but I love it every time
      C
And I realize
F           Em                           Am
I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C                          F
I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em                        Am
They talk shit, but I love it every time
      C
And I realize

[Post-Chorus]
    F                        Em               Am       C
I'm no sweet dream but I'm a hell of a night
         F                         Em              Am       C
That I'm no sweet dream, but I'm a hell of a night
