Future Kings Of Nowhere
B F# A Em

[Verse 1]

My first murder was an accident I never meant to do
I had been going for his wallet, wound up taking his life, too
I had him cornered in an alley with my gun against his face
I said, "Hand over your money and I'll send you on your way"
      B                                         F#  A  Em
But he just had to play the hero and refused to cooperate

[Verse 2]

The second time I killed a man, I did it for revenge
He had been flirting with my woman and I couldn't let that stand
So when he got up to leave the bar, I followed him out back
Pinned him in between a brick wall and my stolen Cadillac
        B                                         F#  A    Em
Kept on inching that car forward, 'til I felt his rib cage crack

[Verse 3]

Now, three and four were easier, but I'm really not sure why
I picked up a couple hitchhikers on route I-95
I don't claim to understand it, but I think I lost my head
All that I remember is the way their clothes turned red
      B                                            F#  A  Em
When I came back to my senses, I had stabbed them both to death

E G D G Em F#m
E G A G F Em

[Verse 4]

Now, by this time, I had become accustomed to the kill
And I'm not proud about it, but I kinda like the thrill
To feel the heartbeat in the throat, the terror in the eyes
The sorry choking noises as they beg you for their lives
    B                             F#  A  Em
Oh, strangulation music, that was number five

[Verse 5]

Six, I did for money, it was just another job
And seven, out of desperation, I had to kill a cop
They caught up with me in Reno as I ran for the state line
The hostages I'd taken, number eight and number nine
B                                             F#m A  Em
Now they've got me surrounded, but they won't get me alive


P.M. Em
So I'm holed up in this motel and I'm loading up my guns
Peering out the window, there's a thousand cops out front
    Em                                         B
They circle me like vultures, but I feel so far away
Everybody has to die, there is no escape
The only thing that changes is how long you have to wait
    C                                          Em     E
I'm not gonna spend my whole life behind metal bars
   B                                                  Em
So get ready, I'm coming, let's see who's the fastest draw!
