The Contortionist

Intro
Em  Am  D  G B

Verse 1
Em                       Am
Twisted all my limbs for you
D                        G               B
Two of them in knots and two of them in loops
Em                         Am
Ribbons tied around like a noose
D                          G     B
Wonder if I'll ever get it loose
Em                       Am
I don't wanna bruise for you
D                        G              B
Holding back my words until my face is blue
Em                              Am
I don't really care about your crew
                   D            G  B
You can tell them what you want to

Pre-Chorus
Em
(Bones are crushing, palms are crushing)
        Am
Pushin' me (Bodies touching, bodies touching)
       D
Lovin' me (Heart is pumping, heart is pumping)
        G
Pullin' me (Feelin' nothing, feelin' nothing)
B       Em
Fuckin' me (Bones are crushing, palms are crushing)
         Am
Crushin' me (Bodies touching, bodies touching)
         N.C.   G  B
Touchin' me, uh-ah

Chorus
   Em        Am      D
I'm done, I'm done, done doing backbends
    G          B          Em      Am
I break and I snap, it's no fun, no fun
D                    G              B     Em
Pushed myself into a box, while you held out a gun
Am         D           G      B
 I'm done, ah-ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Em       Am         D           G      B
I'm done, I'm done, ah-ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

Verse 2
Em                         Am
Twisting all my bones like screws
D                              G                B
Stretching my self worth, just like you usually do
Em                            Am      N.C.
Caught you like the cold or a flu (Ah-choo)
D                               G   B
Praying that I'll someday be immune
Em                   Am
Got me like a bad tattoo (Oh-oh-oh)
D                       G              B
Always under skin, even when it gets removed (Ooh)
Em                      Am
Never got a chance to undo (Oh-oh-oh)
   D                          G              B
Positions that you forced my way into (Ooh)

Pre-Chorus
Em
(Bones are crushing, palms are crushing)
        Am
Pushin' me (Bodies touching, bodies touching)
       D
Lovin' me (Heart is pumping, heart is pumping)
        G
Pullin' me (Feelin' nothing, feelin' nothing)
B       Em
Fuckin' me (Bones are crushing, palms are crushing)
         Am
Crushin' me (Bodies touching, bodies touching)
          N.C.  G  B
Touchin' me, ow-ah

Chorus
   Em        Am      D
I'm done, I'm done, done doing backbends
    G          B          Em      Am
I break and I snap, it's no fun, no fun
D                    G              B     Em
Pushed myself into a box, while you held out a gun
Am         D           G      B
 I'm done, ah-ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Em       Am         D           G      B
I'm done, I'm done, ah-ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
