RACING DRUMBEAT, FEEDBACK AND BASS FADE IN

(Can't even help my friends
Can't even help my friends)

(second guitar still not in)
And everything is going how I want it to
But I still don't want to smile
And I might just find some respite here with you
But I'm weakened by the bile

2ND GUITAR SOLO, FEEDSBACK THROUGH NEXT VERSE

But everybody's being really really nice
I don't have the strength to care
I keep the anger and the passion in an ice pack
Coming up for air

1ST GUITAR ONLY: PRE-CHORUS RIFF

CHORUS
Oh I don't trust the ones I care for
Do not know what they are there for
I don't cherish my emotions
Don't want to make a commotion
I'm ashamed…

INTRO REPEATED WITH TRUNCATED SOLO

BASS, DRUMS, ONE GUITAR FEEDBACK

I really tried to care about my life you know
But I always knew I'd fail
Now insecurity is all I have to show
As I hide beneath the veil

CHORUS

INTRO WITH "WALKMAN" EFFECT

CHORUS

OUTRO
I'm ashamed
I'm afraid
I'm a fool
I'm alone
And I smile
And I cry
And I sit
And I know
And I know
All I know
(repeat to end)
