8I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C11                          F12
9I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em13                        Am14

14[Verse 1]
                                Am16
15I've tasted blood and it is sweet
               C17                      F18
16I've had the rug pulled beneath my feet
             Em19                 Am20
17I've trusted lies and trusted men
                     C21                     F22
18Broke down and put myself back together again
                         Em23
19Stared in the mirror and punched it to shatters
   Am24                    C25
20Collected the pieces and picked out a dagger
F26                         Em27
21I've pinched my skin in between my two fingers
22
23And wished I could cut some parts off with some scissors

26[Pre-Chorus]
F28                    Em29
27Come on little lady, give us a smile
      Am30                    C31
28No, I ain't got nothin' to smile about
      F32                      Em33
29I got no one to smile for, I waited a while for
  Am34
30a moment to say I don't owe you a Goddamn thing
31
32
33[Chorus]
F35           Em36                           Am37
34I, I keep a record of the wreckage of my life
        C38                          F39
35I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind
          Em40                        Am41

41I'm no sweet dream but I'm a hell of a night
         F47                         Em48              Am49       C50

46  No, I won't smile, but I'll show you my teeth
                    C54                         F55
47And I'ma let you speak if you just let me breathe
            Em56                           Am57
48I've been polite, but won't be caught dead
                      C58                       F59
49Lettin' a man tell me what I should do in my bed
                Em60
50Keep my exes in check in my basement
       Am61                       C62
51'Cause kindness is weakness, or worse, you're complacent
F63                      Em64
52I could play nice or I could be a bully
53
54I'm tired and angry, but somebody should be
