V1 Am The devil ain't a legend, the devil's real Am in the empty way he touched me where i hardly feel Dm in the empty hole inside me, where nothing ever ride me Am down into my grave that does not heal bridge E and nothing is a something, it'll suck you dry. Am as a whisper you can hardly hear that tells you why riff? V2 Am They told me you ain't got no problems, you self-deceived Am these seeming contradictions, they're make believe Dm it was then that I decided, my life was being guided Am by a second rate dependence on a first class phase bridge E They told me I was breaking through, but I was breaking down Am E by the time I heard the difference they had long left town riff? V3 Am You know they're so malicious, they're mean Am they so vaguely well-intentioned with no love I've seen Dm and it's the emptiness that'll kill you, cold comfort that'll fill you Am with a sense of dread making things worse than they seem bridge E They don't tell you nothing, you don't already know Am E they just keep holding out the promise but they don't let go riff? V4 Am well it was hard luck and trouble, bad times too Am I know i had 'em coming, but I got through Dm it was advise that you gave me in a dream, that saved me Am you said "get a new life contract that spells out your dues" bridge E too good will define it, a clear conscience to sign it Am E now I dream 'bout the good times and it all comes true solo? repeat verse 1 and 4 to end | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note
