lyrics

Please Note:
[the symbol '>'= a repetition of the chord held over from the last verse, in this case Em]

———— Em————C

Sweating balls/ On a bike

———Am———Em

In the middle of a snowstorm

—————Em—————C

Aren't you cold?/ People taunt

————D———————Em

Like it's impossible to feel warm

————>—————C

Heated seats/ Puffy coats

————Am———————Em

Still they shiver/ just to keep warm

——————Em————C

And-they're miserable & awkward

————D————————Em

til their cars have heated up more

—————>————————C

Aren't you cold? Theyscreamatme-

———Am——————Em

As-Im-stripping-off-my-layers

————>———————C

Sweating balls up On this bike. And my

D———————Em

hearts beating so fast now

>-C-Am-Em

————>———————C

The assumption/ that all humans

—————D————Em

Experience the/ same sensation

————>———————C

The assumption/ that our bodies

———Am————Em

Are all equally conditioned

————>—————————C

They're assuming that they're Lifestyle

———D—————Em

is a standard that I strive for

>——————————C

won't believe me when I say

——Am—————————Em

I'm sweating balls Up in this snowstorm

——Em——————C

They deny it say I'm lying, there's

——D—————————Em

no way Cause they know better

—————>——————C

While I'm stripping off my gloves

————Am———————Em

and shredding open all my zippers

(Slow down)

———>——————C

Well I don't know/ if I make them

—D———Em————>

uncomfortable/ But I don't think

———C———————Am——Em

they want to see me as I see myself

————>—————C

Will they ever grow beyond

———————D————Em

Such childish assumptions

————>———————C————Am——Em

Will they ever have empathy for anyone else?

(Speed up)

——————>————————————————C

Or will they harden up their hearts And keep their ego in a shell

D—————————————Em

Always casting judgement on anything but themselves

———>

Don't try to figure them out

———C

Don't let em get you down

———Am

Just keep on doing what you love

——Em

And leave

C————D

...them

Em

out.

I'm just some rando who probably doesn't identify as human in the same way as most do. I'd put my name on these songs but I feel like they are about twice as honest and half as shy as I am able to be as a person so I'm a little uncomfortable with that.
