          I do believe I’ll find myself a new place

                     G5/E               D5   E5    C5

          I don’t want to be the bad guy

                 C5    D5     G5

          I don’t want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

          I just want to see some palm trees

          Go and try to shake away this disease

[Chorus]

                               C5

          We can live beside the ocean

          C5            D5          G5

          Leave the fire behind

          Watch the world die

          Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away

                     G5/E               D5   E5    C5

          I don’t want to be your good time

                 C5    D5     G5

          I don’t want to be your fall-back crutch anymore

[Verse IV]

          I’ll walk right out into a brand new day

                 G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5

          Insane and rising in my own weird way

                     G5/E               D5   E5    C5

          I don’t want to be the bad guy

                 C5    D5     G5

          I don’t want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

          I just want to feel some sunshine

          I just want to find some place to be alone

[Chorus]

                               C5

          We can live beside the ocean

          C5            D5          G5

          Leave the fire behind

          G5               E5     D5

          Swim out past the breakers

          Watch the world die
