Em                     G               D       Dsus4 D
No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man
          Cadd9      Asus2
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes
Em                     G          D      Dsus4 D
No one knows what it's like to be hated
      Cadd9            Asus2
To be fated to telling only lies

       C  D                   G     Gsus4 G
But my dreams, they aren't as empty
      C          D        E  Esus4 E
As my conscience seems to be
       Bm           C
I have hours, only lonely
           D   Dsus4 D            Asus2
My love is vengeance that's never free

No one knows what it's like to feel these feelings
Like I do, and I blame you
No one bites back as hard on their anger
None of my pain and woe can show through

But my dreams, they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that's never free

E            Bm       A        E
When my fist clenches crack it open
         Bm         G       D
Before I use it and lose my cool
       G     A            D
When I smile tell me some bad news
         G         A          E   Bm  A  E
Before I laugh and act like a fool
         Bm      A        E
And if I swallow anything evil
           Bm     G       D
Stick your finger down my throat
         G             A         D
And if I shiver please give me a blanket
        G           A         E  Bm  A     E  Bm  A
Keep me warm let me wear your coat
