Innocence with live version lyrics…
     G   G6  G13 C6  Em  Am  C
if you’re playing the live electric version no capo, if playing acoustic, Capo 4(chords
relative to capo)


After intro but before the lyrics start I play G6 Em, listen to get the strum its pretty easy

Pre song lyrics Mikel sings when playing live and on the youtube acoustic version…Lyrics
taken from the chicago live performance on youtube.
(I want to disappear, I just sleep all day, these spots on my face, blood stains on my
wrists, the air grows cold, I shudder and I can sing, the carpet on my feet, the sweat
stains on the sheets, cough syrup and drugs, bandages and gauss, the razor was dull the
water cold against my skin, the radio long the static buzzing around my brain, and all these
empty plans, these ink stains on my hands, everyone saves their best words for the
grave, all these weary morning tones, I probably save mine too, and heavens just a long road
home, tell me it’s true and I’ll go too ill go too ill go too)

G6                 G13   G6
Well, I lost my innocence today
                   G13   C
I could feel her in my bones
My bones, my bones, my bones
    G                             G13
My blood, my blood, my blood, my blood

G                      G13       G
and I woke up, tired, scared and sad
                  G13       C
Soaked, drained, I felt so bad

Today, today, today
           G                             G13
What you still, you still, you still, you still
Won't you say, you say, you say, you say
           G                        G13
What you feel, you feel, you feel, you feel
          Em                           Am
Which is nothing but hollow feelings, yeah
   C                   G          G13
I can die, I just don't care

Verse starts out the same, but switches to a new strum pattern with chords G, Em at
“Were not Gods” for a few lines before returning to usual rhythm listen to song to get pattern.

And forget happiness, I'm fine
I'll forget everything in time
I swear I didn't know,
You know me, how I can't let go

and we're not gods, we're just hacks
all that life amongst the cracks
The scars, the siege that breaks
The ugliest scene, the worst mistakes
and everywhere I see her face
Such a beautiful child, such an awful waste
and there's no innocence like hers
Just emptiness and nerves

 D                           Em
and this light from the window of my car
              C             G
She'll never see it, oh my god
              D                       Em
I was so surprised, it blew up in my face
                  C          G  D  C
Lord, I lost my nerve, oh my go-o-od...
       G    D    C
Oh my god, oh my... god

This is the solo, I just play the G, Em

G        G13 G    G13  C6           G  G13
and I tear, I tear, so haa-aaa-aaa-ard...
and I tear, I tear, so haa-aaa-aaa-ard...

      Em                      Am
and I beg and scream, "I was wrong"
C                          G
  It's over, well, she's gone
