Verse:
GbGb chord                                    
I know what you think in the morning, 
DbDb chord
when the sun shines on the ground,
EbmEbm chord      BB chord                   
And shows what you have done,
GbGb chord        DbDb chord
 it shows where your mind has gone.
GbGb chord                             
And you swear to your parents, 
Dbthat it will never happen again,
EbmEbm chord    BB chord       GbGb chord               DbDb chord
I know, I know, what that means, I know.

Pre-Chorus:
BB chord           GbGb chord         DbDb chord
That you all have guns, and you never put the safety on.
AbmAbm chord         GbGb chord         DbDb chord
And you all have plans, to take it, 

to take it, don't take it, take it, take it.

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.

 I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.
            BB chord             
But I can't, but I can't, 
        GbGb chord       DbDb chord
when you all have guns for hands.
GbGb chord                              
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.

 I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.

But I can't, but I can't, 
        GbGb chord       DbDb chord
when you all have guns for hands.

Verse:
GbGb chord                                 
Let's take this a second at a time.
DbDb chord
 Let's take this one song, this one rhyme.
EbmEbm chord       BB chord             GbGb chord        DbDb chord
Together, let's breathe. Together, to the beat.
GbGb chord                              DbDb chord
But there's hope out the window, so that's where we'll go.
EbmEbm chord        BB chord                  
Let's go outside and all join 
GbGb chord                         DbDb chord
hands but until then you'll never understand.

Pre-Chorus:
BB chord           GbGb chord         DbDb chord
That you all have guns, and you never put the safety on.
AbmAbm chord         GbGb chord         DbDb chord
And you all have plans, to take it, 

to take it, don't take it, take it, take it.

Chorus:
GbGb chord                              
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.
DbDb chord                           EbmEbm chord
 I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.
            BB chord             
But I can't, but I can't, 
        GbGb chord       DbDb chord
when you all have guns for hands.
GbGb chord                              
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.
DbDb chord                           EbmEbm chord
 I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.
            BB chord             
But I can't, but I can't, 
        GbGb chord       DbDb chord
when you all have guns for hands.


-rapping part, repeat EbmEbm chord BB chord GbGb chord DbDb chord four times-

We've turned our hands to guns,
trade in our thumbs for ammunition. I must 
forewarn you of my disorder, my condition.
'Cause when the sun sets,
it upsets what's left of my invested interest, 
interested in putting my fingers to my head.
The solution is I see a whole room of these mutant kids,
fused at the wrist I 
simply tell them they should shoot at this.
Simply suggest my chest and this confused 
music is obviously best for them to turn 
their guns to a fist.

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep. I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.
            BB chord                     GbGb chord       DbDb chord
But I can't, but I can't, when you all have guns for hands.
GbGb chord                              DbDb chord                           EbmEbm chord
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep. I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep.
            BB chord                     GbGb chord       DbDb chord
But I can't, but I can't, when you all have guns for hands.
