Snap Back Chords

(Version #1)
Twenty One Pilots
[Intro]
 
C Dm
 
 
[Chorus]
C                                      Dm
  Got a bad feeling that I’m about to break
                                             C
Been a good streak, but the pressure’s overweight
                                       Dm
Is it even good, for my head to keep track?
                                             C
If I’m gonna snap necks, then I gotta snap back
                                      Dm
Got a bad feeling I’m gonna lose the lead
                                              C
Running from a thing, that I kicked at seventeen
                                        Dm
Is it even right, for my head to keep track?
                                            C
If I’m gonna snap necks, then I gotta snap back
 
 
[Verse 1]
C
  Have I burnt all the bridges?
Dm
  Bite the hand that helps mem give it finger stitches
C
  Blacklisted from forgiveness
             Dm
Fool you once, it’s been twenty-five times
 
 
[Pre‐Chorus]
             C
It’s a backslide
                 Dm
I commandeered a hot ride
                   C
Drove it ‘til the engine died
              Dm
All of that progress lost today
 
 
[Chorus]
C                                      Dm
  Got a bad feeling that I’m about to break
                              Dm/F            C
Been a good streak, but the pressure’s overweight
                                       Dm
Is it even good, for my head to keep track?
                                             C
If I’m gonna snap necks, then I gotta snap back
                                      Dm
Got a bad feeling I’m gonna lose the lead
                                              C
Running from a thing, that I kicked at seventeen
                                        Dm
Is it even right, for my head to keep track?
                                           C
If I’m gonna snap necks, then I gotta snap -
 
 
[Verse 2]
C
Oh it’s you
Well, welcome back to the show
(Been a minute)
 Dm
Guess I better move to a fresher approach
                      C
(Thought I kicked it)
               Dm
It’s a new adaptation
 
 
[Pre‐Chorus]
            C
It’s a backslide
                Dm
I hate the surprise
                  C
And now it's all gone
              Dm
All of that progress lost today
 
 
[Bridge]
C
I have seemed to run out of excuses
Of why I am this way
 
 
[Chorus]
N.C.
Got a bad feeling that I’m about to break
Been a good streak, but the pressure’s overweight
Is it even good, for my head to keep track?
                                            C
If I’m gonna snap necks, then I gotta snap back
 
                                      Dm
Got a bad feeling I’m gonna lose the lead
                                              C
Running from a thing, that I kicked in seventeen
                                        Dm
Is it even right, for my head to keep track?
                                            C    Dm
If I’m gonna snap necks, then I gotta snap back
             C     Dm
(Gotta snap back)
 
 
[Outro]
C                        Dm
I’ve been praying for my elasticity
         C                   Dm
To return to the way that it was
                                            C
(If I’m gonna snap necks then I gotta snap back)
C                        Dm
I’ve been praying for my elasticity
         C                   Dm
To return to the way that it was
                                            C    Dm Dm/F
(If I’m gonna snap necks then I gotta snap back)
