[Verse]
C C Em Em C C
This is for the lions living in the wiry broke down frames of my friends’ bodies
C C Em Em C C
When the floodwater comes, it ain’t gonna be clear, it’s gonna look like mud
F F Am Am F F Am Am F F Am Am F F
But I will help you swim, I will help you swim, I’m gonna help you swim

[Instrumental]
C C

[Verse]
C C
This is for the snakes and the people they bite
C C
For the friends I’ve made, for the sleepless nights
C C F F C C
For the warning signs I’ve completely ignored
C C F F
There’s an amount to take, reasons to take more

[Pre-Chorus]
Am Am F F Am Am
It’s no big surprise you turned out this way
F F Am Am
When they close their eyes and prayed you'd change
F F Am Am
They cut your hair, sent you away
F F Am Am
You stopped by my house the night you escaped
F F Am Am
With tears in my eyes, I begged you to stay
F F
You said “Hey man, I love you, but no fucking way”

[Chorus]
C C Em Em F F
I’m sure we could find something for you to do on stage
D D C C Em Em F F
Maybe shake a tambourine, or when I sing, you sing harmonies

[Instrumental]
C C Am Am F F C C (x2)
C C

[Verse]
C C Em Em G G C C F F C C
This is for the lake that me and my friends swim in, naked and dumb on a drunken night
C C Em Em G G C C F F
And it shoulda felt good, but I could hear the Jaws theme song on repeat in the back of my mind

[Pre-Chorus]
Am Am F F Am Am F F
Make sure you kiss your knuckles before you punch me in the face
Am Am F F Am Am
There are lessons to be learned, consequences for all the stupid things I say
F F Am Am F F
And it is no big surprise you turned out this way
Am Am F F
The spark in your eyes, the look on your face, I will not be brave

[Chorus]
C C Em Em F F
I’m sure we could find something for you to do on stage
D D C C Em Em F F
Maybe shake a tambourine, or when I sing, you sing harmonies

[Bridge 1]
D D C C Em Em F F
I wanna contribute to the chaos, I don’t wanna watch and then complain
D D C C Em Em F F
‘Cause I am through finding blame. That is the decision that I have made

[Instrumental]
C C Am Am F F C C (x6)

[Bridge 2]
C C Am Am F F C C
She hopes I’m cursed forever to sleep on a twin sized mattress
Am Am F F C C
In somebody’s attic or basement my whole life
Am Am F F C C
Never graduating up in size to add another
Am Am F F C C
And my nightmares will have nightmares every night, oh every night, every night

[Outro]
C C Am Am F F C C (x6)
