0Did I mention he was dreaming
G#71 1When the devil came to town
C#m2 2I was awoken by the screaming
B3 3But nobody heard a sound
A4 4And the lies we tell at breakfast
C#m5 5Won't match the lies we share for lunch
G#6 6And the lies we serve for dinner
A7 B8 7They’re the tallest of the bunch, yeah
E9 8Did I mention he was cold
G#710 9When he finally lost control of the ghost
C#m11 10And the epilogue I dreaded
B12 11Now seemed likely to console
A13 12And I'm still not understanding
C#m14 13The things he did before he left
G#15 14And the one thing that will haunt me
A16 B17 15Is right before his final breath, when he said
16
17
E18 B19 18"Oh they broke me down, yeah they broke me down
F#m20 C#m21 B22 19So I can't be your saint you see, cause I won't be hanging around
E23 B24 20And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
F#m25 C#m26 B27 21So I stood there and I held my breath cause I knew that it wouldn't be long
E28 22Till they broke me down
23
Interlude -x4-: E29 B30 A31 24
C#m32 B33 25And no one holds a grudge dear
A34 E35 B36 C#m37 26Like I do, I see it through
B38 27And you may not remember
A39 28It was nothing much at the time
E40 B41 29But I kept it bottled inside
30
31
G#42 A43 32 Oh and we all know how that goes
G#44 A45 33 I'd given up on letting go
E46 C#m47 G#48 34 So here we are, with nothing left, dear
A49 35And now you've left here
B50 36And I was last to know
37
38
E51 39Holy smokes
G#752 40Some say he'd given up the ghost, but he wouldn't do that
C#m53 41I think he's hiding in the background
B54 42Of his favorite photographs
A55 43And he's living as a beggar
C#m56 44Or maybe a millionaire
G#57 45But the one thing that I'm sure of
A58 B59 46Is he found some comfort there, that's fair
47
48
E60 B61 49Because they broke him down, oh they broke him down
F#m62 C#m63 B64 50So he can't be my saint no more, he won't be hangin around
51
52Oh no
53
Interlude -x4-: E65 B66 A67 54
E68 B69 55And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
F#m70 C#m71 B72 56He said "I can't be your saint no more because I won't be hangin around"
E73 B74 57And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
F#m75 B76 58So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew that it wouldn't be long
E77 59Before they broke me down
