[Verse]
G#m
This must be nice; just what you wanted

Eaten alive we've got that in common
   C#m   
Cognizant of unconscious threats

Saw it all off: that's what I do best
   G#m
Respectful dissent, or cutting-glass comment?

You know what I said, but that's not what I meant
 C#m
Taking what's mine, rightfully owed

Nobody minds, if nobody knows

[Chorus]
     B   
We walked through this disaster
                      E 
Maybe now I'm better off
    B  
I thought that we were past this
                           E
Somehow I'm still catching up
            A   
Well, it's best not to lie
                
But you can't really mean this
    C#m                  
So let's not rely on a handshake agreement

[Interlude]
G#m       
..........

[Verse]
G#m
Means don't want ends; it starts to seem funny
   B 
I trust all your friends, just not with my money
C#m  
Capital gains start to mean less
     E   
You lost the whole game; who got the assist?
  G#m  
Respectful dissent or cutting-glass comment?

You know what I said but that's not what I meant
     C#m
Take as a sign what's openly shown

Nobody minds if nobody knows

[Chorus]
     B   
We walked through this disaster
                      E 
Maybe now I'm better off
    B  
I thought that we were past this
                           E
Somehow I'm still catching up
            A   
Well, it's best not to lie
                
But you can't really mean this
    C#m                  
So let's not rely on a handshake agreement

..So much for your etiquette
C#m                               E           B
You'd take exception but you're trying to be nice
     G#m    B       G#m
That won't get you anywhere
C#m                         E           B
This latest lesson really opened up my eyes
   G#m   B        G#m   
So much for your etiquette
B              G#m                C#m   E      B
Yeah, I could tell you were just trying to be nice
     G#m    B       G#m   
That won't get you anywhere
B           G#m            C#m   E      
This latest lesson really opened up my eyes
