[No Intro]
 
[Verse]
|Em D |Cadd9                   |Em D        |Cadd9  |
 -- -- - We've been testing you -- - and you failed
|Em D           |Cadd9
 -- - To see how long that you could sit with the
|Em    D             |Cadd9
 Truth but you bailed -
             Em                           C
 And I don't think you even recognize the loss of control
             Em                           C
 And I don't think you even see it in yourself
           Em                              C
 See every one of us is countin' dice that we didn't roll
         Em                           C
 And the loser is the last to ask for help
 
[Chorus]
 G                           D/F#
 --- Be afraid, be very afra-aid
 D/F#              C/E
 - But do it anywa-ay ---
 C/E           G     |G   |
 - Do it anywa-ay --- ----
 
[Verse]
|Em D |Cadd9                     |Em        D          |Cadd9  |
 -- -- - The stage belongs to you - and you feel like a star
        |Em       D          |Cadd9
 You can bark and snap like a dog at the man
         |Em            D  |Cadd9
 Who just tuned your guitar ---
             Em                           C
 And I don't think you even recognize the kid in the wings
             Em                            C
 And I don't think you even see her in yourself
              Em                              C
 She looks to you for what to do with all her delicate dreams
                Em                     C
 But you're too terrified to be of any help
 
[Chorus]
||: G                           D/F#
    --- Be afraid, be very afra-aid
 D/F#              C/E
 - But do it anywa-ay ---
 C/E           G     |G   :||
 - Do it anywa-ay --- ----
 
[Bridge]
          Em                      C               |G   |
 We don't take requests, we won't shut up and sing ----
 G               Em
 -- You tell the truth enough
        C                  |D       |D    |
 You'll find it rhymes with everythi----ng
 
[Verse]
|Em D |Cadd9                   |Em D        |Cadd9
 -- -- - We've been testing you -- - and you failed
           |Em                  D           |Cadd9
 To see how long that you could hold it in before you screamed
        |Em     D      |Cadd9
 But you only exhaled - ---
             Em                           C
 And I don't think you even recognize the sound of your voice
           Em                                   C
 When it's blastin' through the speakers in the sky
             Em                                  C
 And if your words add up to nothin' then you're makin' a choice
           Em                          C
 To sing a cover when we need a battle cry
 
[Chorus]
||: G                           D/F#
    --- Be afraid, be very afra-aid
 D/F#              C/E
 - But do it anywa-ay ---
 C/E           G     |G   |
 - Do it anywa-ay --- ----
 G                           D/F#
 --- Be afraid, be very afra-aid
 D/F#              C/E
 - But do it anywa-ay ---
 C/E           G     |G   :||
 - Do it anywa-ay --- ----
