Intro: D Asus4 Em7 G (2x)

D                  Asus4 
Piles and piles of old magazines 
Em7                   G 
Windows locked up and hidden from the street. 
D                   Asus4 
In a crawlspace, forgotten money. 
        Em7                       G 
People tensing and waiting to come back home. 
        D        Asus4           Em7 
You can feel the tension in the house 
     G                         D         Asus4 
the moment you walk through the door. 
         Em7             G 
Sudden madness allow me in again. 

         D           Asus4          Em7               G6 
When the first train flies past the house, miles away 
              D                          Asus4       
the screaming starts and it feels like a minefield,  
     Em7                 G 
the neighbors silently hiding in the shadows. 
          D                   Asus4 
There's a person locked in, behind that door - 
         Em7                G 
Don't let anybody catch you turning the handle. 
       D           Asus4                     Em7                G 
It's a long, long night. It's going to be an awful and lonely night. 

               D                      D/Db 
Well...you can blot out the years and abandon the jungle 
E7                       G 
Cover up the tapes and refuse to look back, 
         D         Asus4             Em7      G 
but your own right hand is not gonna save your soul. 
              D                    D/Db 
You have been followed! Ah, the mechanics. 
         E7                     G 
All the reactions that seem to attach themselves. 
            D                   Asus4                     Em7         G 
It's been a very very very long year and it's gonna be an even longer night. 

                       D                  Asus4 
And then a screen door slams; the windows break. 
             Em7                      G 
A woman just jumps and scrapes at the hood of a car. 
         D                   Asus4                    Em7                G 
When the car backs up into a streetlight, all of the neighbors call the cops. 
           D                  Asus4 
She falls off and the car speeds away 
               Em7                  G 
Headed for the border of a far away state. 
           D                                Asus4                        Em7 
It's gonna mean an hour of freedom with the radio and quarter-filled gas tank. 
                      G 
And a quarter filled gas tank 
                    D 
With the high beams on 
                    Asus4 A 
And the windows down...
