Lyrics:

Intro

Verse1:
C#m              B            Ab                A
I'll warn you, if cornered, I'll scratch my way out of the pen
C#m      B       Ab                A
Wired, an animal. The claustrophobia begins
C#m
You think I'm scared of girls, Well maybe
But I'm not afraid of you
You want to scare me then you'll cling to me no matter what I do
Verse2:
C#m        B         Ab              A
Tell you a secret  They shared a needle once or twice
C#m            B            Ab            A
I loved her, she loved me  We slept together a couple of times
C#m
You think I'm proud of this, Well maybe
But the shame you never lose
Infatuated with a lunatic and cornered by the muse
Chorus1:
B                        C#m                  E
And it goes           down every           niiiiiight
This must be         what jail is really   liiiiiike
And I will scratch my way out of this      peeeeeen,   again

Verse part1

Verse3:
C#m              B            Ab           A
Lonely?        Maybe          Or maybe not, It all depends
C#m           B            Ab           A
Your ideal, your image     Your definition of a friend
C#m
If what you're shoveling is company
Then I'd rather be alone
Resentment always goes much further than it was supposed to go

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Verse1 until "an animal".
end on C#m
