lyrics

all bass notes in intro/verses are over a Bm
Intro: B, C#, D, A, G
Vs1&2
B C# D A G
I built this house but it fell down before I got one night of sleep
B C# D A G
So how does that beat all the fools who never tried
They missed the moon in rented rooms, traded stories over food
I worked alone, broke my bones with all my pride (hang on G)

I desired royal attire, so I acquired the emperor's skin
held a parade & begged the world to look inside
I wanted fame, 'cause I thought fame could prove to me that I was great
it never came; I was a failure to myself
Chorus
(G,F#,G,A) F# G
It's the way of the world to swallow you alive
F# G Bm (walk) G (2x)
The way of the world to swallow you alive // spirit first.

Vs3/4
It's been so long singing songs I couldn't possibly still mean
i guess they're lies if they've lost the truth they had
and it's so hard to get well, writing postcards home from Hell
I'd rather pack; I'd rather leave this all/
Chorus
It's the way of the world to swallow you alive
the way of the world to swallow you alive // spirit first
Bridge
G Bm
Whoa, Whoa, I give up (2x)
G Bm
Ooo - ooooh // I give up.

Vs5
You get one life, and I spend mine chasing highways made of ghosts
now I don't know the way home from where I stand
And I believed I was free, til I forgot what I believed
now I don't even need chains to hold me down.
