Lyrics

Opening E/D, Adim/Eb G/F# B/D#



Em/D Adim/Eb
Add and subtract all the money you make and divide your life
Cadd9/E D(acf) C (gce) Adim/C
Multiply that by the times that you thought you could not survive

Em/D
Don’t forget to compound all the love
Adim/Eb
All the love you turned down to calculate
C/E(gce)
The numbers and figures
E/D (g#bd)
disguised as the person
C (gce) Adim/C
You tried to Fake

Em/D Adim/Eb G/F#
I, I have trouble sleeping at night
B/D#
sometimes
Em/D Adim G/B C
I try to breathe but the night won’t release me to sleep
D/G Emin adda G D/A D
won’t release me to sleep

Em/D
Sleep on the pillow
Adim/Eb
of boxes you schedule the days you live
Cadd9/E D(acf) C (gce) Adim/C
Appoint and progress the monsters you cross dress live under your bed
Em/D
The darkness of sleep that won’t settle yet
Adim/Eb
flys to the light like a moth
Cadd9/E D(acf) C (gce) Adim/C
Your stomach is sick with the Smell and the sight of this silent world

Em/D Adim/Eb G/F#
I, I have trouble sleeping at night
B/D#
sometimes
Em. Adim G/B C
I try to breathe but the night won’t release me to sleep
G/D C/D
release me to sleep

G/F# C/G G
Release Release me to Sleep
