                      E
Did I mention he was dreaming
                       G#7
When the devil came to town
                    C#m
I was awoken by the screaming
                   B
But nobody heard a sound
                        A
And the lies we tell at breakfast
                                  C#m
Won't match the lies we share for lunch
                          G#
And the lies we serve for dinner
                           A      B
They’re the tallest of the bunch, yeah
                     E
Did I mention he was cold
                     G#7
When he finally lost control of the ghost
                   C#m
And the epilogue I dreaded
                      B
Now seemed likely to console
                  A
And I'm still not understanding
                           C#m
The things he did before he left
                            G#
And the one thing that will haunt me
                          A               B
Is right before his final breath, when he said


                  E                     B
"Oh they broke me down, yeah they broke me down
   F#m                                    C#m               B
So I can't be your saint you see, cause I won't be hanging around
                   E                     B
And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
   F#m                                         C#m                       B
So I stood there and I held my breath cause I knew that it wouldn't be long
                   E
Till they broke me down

Interlude -x4-: E B A

C#m                 B
And no one holds a grudge dear
     A              E       B       C#m
Like I do, I see it through
                B
And you may not remember
       A
It was nothing much at the time
E                     B
But I kept it bottled inside


G#            A
   Oh and we all know how that goes
G#            A
   I'd given up on letting go
E            C#m                G#
  So here we are, with nothing left, dear
               A
And now you've left here
          B
And I was last to know


                E
Holy smokes
                           G#7
Some say he'd given up the ghost, but he wouldn't do that
                           C#m
I think he's hiding in the background
                 B
Of his favorite photographs
                     A
And he's living as a beggar
                 C#m
Or maybe a millionaire
                           G#
But the one thing that I'm sure of
                         A                B
Is he found some comfort there, that's fair


                       E                     B
Because they broke him down, oh they broke him down
   F#m                               C#m               B
So he can't be my saint no more, he won't be hangin around

Oh no

Interlude -x4-: E B A

                   E                         B
And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
         F#m                                      C#m              B
He said "I can't be your saint no more because I won't be hangin around"
                   E                       B
And they broke him down, yeah they broke him down
   F#m                                           B
So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew that it wouldn't be long
                     E
Before they broke me down
