Capo on 1st fret

         D                         E
Good for me, for a time, all hell's cubically contained
              G                                       D
Staunched and bottled, pressed and altered and at the ready for the reigns
          D                        E
The first tiny little shadows of my creepy little thoughts
  G                          D
Inhabit all that matters and I lose by default

        G              A
And I'll never promise anything again
G                   A
 I'll never promise anything again
G                   A               D
 I'll never promise anything again

  D                                   E
I set a dozen twelve-steps traps, they slid by everyone
  G                                            D
I never catch the little bastards, I really do wish that they'd own up
      D                                 E
Those paranoid little fuckers take their paranoid little time
             G                                                  D
And when the mood rolls in, they're like bank robbin' and I'm a hostage who will drive

        G              A
And I'll never promise anything again
G                   A
 I'll never promise anything again
G                   F              C             Bb
 I'll never promise, never promise, never promise anything again
D               F              C             Bb
 Anything again, never promise, never promise anything again
D               F               C             Bb              A    D
 Anything again, anything again, never promise anything again

    D                               E
Now I can only do so much and I will never deviate
  G                                                   D
I hear myself take a deep breath and think I must have wanted it this way
    D                                     E
I remember all those little traps, I could not keep them in place
          G                                  D
They were never stationed anywhere, they were terrorized and maimed
     D                            E
So tonight I'll set a vigil and my shadow's all that's cast
        G                              D
And the iron that's encased it is doing all that one could ask

        G              A
And I'll never promise anything again
G                   A
 I'll never promise anything again
G                   F         C    Bb
 I'll never promise anything again, anything again
D             F               C             Bb
 Never promise anything again, never promise anything again
D F               C                    Bb               A    D
   Anything again, never promise, yeah, anything again
