[Intro]
C#m         B   A
.................

[Verse 1]
        C#m             B                       A
There's no way out of an angry crowd without steppin' on some toes
           C#m                      B                         A
They'll scream your name 'til the lights go out then they'll feed you to the wolves
      C#m              B                       A
It's hard to say who you'll be when they let those big red curtains close
     C#m                 B        A
You know this 'cause you told me so...

[Pre-Chorus]
             C#m
I bet you forgot
                            B
Black heels in the summertime
Dad's bad, cookin' though, you'd be polite
A 
 Honey, now you got a look that I don't recognize
A
 You pulled me aside and you said

[Chorus]
E
..To know me is to hate me
Is to hate what I've become
Amaj7
..It's to watch me as I'm fallin'
From that ladder's last rung
C#m                        B
..It's to feel it like a secret
                        Amaj7
You can't keep in, I'm not the way I was
I'm not the way I was

[Post-Chorus]
C#m       B         A
.....................

[Verse 2]
          C#m                    B
Were you freed within, did you leave your skin?
           A
Are you tethered in your doubt?
           C#m                    B                 A
Have you breathed it in 'til it's medicine that you cannot live without?
            C#m                     B                 A
'Cause you came back home a ******' alien and we're stuck here on the ground
          C#m           B                A
Call your mom back, kid, before the high comes down

[Pre-Chorus]
              C#m
'Cause you forgot
Black heels in the summertime
B
..Dirt road smoking on a Friday night
A
 Honey, now you got a look that I don't recognize
A
 You pulled me aside and you said

[Chorus]
E
..To know me is to hate me
Is to hate what I've become
Amaj7
..It's to watch me as I'm fallin'
From that ladder's last rung
C#m                        B
..It's to feel it like a secret
                        Amaj7
You can't keep in, I'm not the way I was
I'm not the way I was
E
..But to feel it, to see it
The look in all their eyes
Amaj7
..Is to breathe in, to be in
The good grace of that Godlight
C#m                   B
..It's to have it in your hands
                           Amaj7
The one thing you wanted all your life
"It's all mine"

[Bridge]
E                                                A
 It's a hole I can't fill, it's a curse I can't break
                                             C#m
And I gave my soul to it, and I cannot be reclaimed
               B                    A
I was younger then, I was younger then
I was young

[Chorus]
E
..To know me is to hate me
Is to hate what I've become
Amaj7
..It's to watch me as I'm fallin'
From that ladder's last rung
C#m                        B
..It's to feel it like a secret
                        Amaj7
You can't keep in, I'm not the way I was
I'm not the way I was
E
..But to feel it, to see it
The look in all their eyes
Amaj7
..Is to breathe in, to be in
The good grace of that Godlight
C#m                   B
..It's to have it in your hands
                           Amaj7
The one thing you wanted all your life
"It's all mine"

[Outro]
E
 And to feel it, to see it
                       Amaj7
The look in all your eyes
..Is to breathe in, to be in
                              C#m
The good grace of this Godlight
                     B
..It's to have it in your hands
                        A
The one thing I wanted all my life
It's all mine
