[Verse 1] Em     D/F#     G Send away for a priceless gift Csus2           Gm7/C One not subtle, One not on the list.

[Chorus] Em                                   D And I’m staring down the barrel of a 45 C                             D Swimming through the ashes of another life. Em                               D No real reason to accept the way things have changed C                            Am Staring down the barrel of a 45.
