Chords: Em, Bm, C, G, D
Intro: Em Bm C x2

  Em
I dragged this lake looking for corpses
Bm                  C
Dusted for prints, pried up the floorboards
Em
Pieces of planes and black box recorders
Bm         C
Don't lie (don't lie)
              Em
And I've been preoccupied with these sick, sick senses
Bm                  C
That sense DNA on barbed wire fences
Em
Maybe someday I'll find me a suspect
Bm              C
That has no alibi

Em Bm C

    Em
And New Year's Eve was as boring as heaven
Bm                      C
I watched flies fuck on Channel 11
Em
There was no one to kiss, there was nothing to drink
Bm                              C
Except some old rotten milk someone left in the sink
    Em
And there's no ring, there's no ring on the phone anymore
Bm                         C
There's no reason to call, I passed out on the floor
Em                                        Bm     C
Smoked myself stupid and drank my insides raisin dry

            G
But at the right place at the right time
        Bm                         D
I'll be dead wrong and you'll be just fine
        G
I won't have to quit doing fucked up shit
    Em        D
For anyone but me
        G
At the right place at the right time
       Bm               D
It'll be worth it to stand in line
                G
You won't have to stop saying "I love cops" 
     Em        D
for anyone but me
             Em   Bm C  
Your private eye
