Intro: |C |Csus4|C |Csus4 

Verse 1
C             Csus4
 Where did we go?
C             Csus4                   C
 When was the moment that we broke in two?
          Csus4
I think I know
C             Csus4                  G
 In fact I am sure I can blame it on you
               F/C       C
I remember the first big surprise
    G                           F/C      C
The day you came home with your infrared eyes
Am       G/B C            Dm7
I looked inside them, but all I could see
     F/C                 G C/G G7
Were tiny reflections of me

Chorus
                     F/C                        C
But it’s not me it’s you, what you’re turning into
                Dm7                    C
Is some kind of something that I never knew
               F/C                C
You used to be OK and I liked you that way
      Am               Am7/G      D7/F#
But I don’t think that I like you better
     F/C              G          C      Csus4
No I don’t think that I like you better

Verse 2
C                Csus4
 You started out small
C                    Csus4                 C
 Some gills and some wings and a few extra thumbs
C                         Csus4
 Now you’re thirteen feet tall
C                  Csus4                G
 Even when you’re asleep your machinery hums
                     F/C        C
And I’m tired of the evenings I spend
G                           F/C       C
Making small talk with your new robot friends
          Am     G/B C         Dm7
And their stupid insistence on scanning my iris
     F/C                       G C/G G7
When they know damn well who I am

Chorus
                      F/C                  C
And you look like the victim of a surgical crime
               Dm7                     C
A little Darth Vader, a little Optimus Prime
               F/C                  C
You used to be OK and I liked you that way
      Am               Am7/G      D7/F#
But I don’t think that I like you better
     F/C              G          Ab
No I don’t think that I like you better

Verse 3
C                 Csus4
 So that’s how it goes
C                    Csus4           C
 Snap your mandibles once to say you understand
             Csus4
 Now hold me close
C                 Csus4                         G
 Wait, now that’s too close, you’re crushing my hand
                   F/C       C
I can tell by that shrieking alarm
     G                        F/C        C
That your weapons systems are active and armed
Am  G/B C         Dm7
Do me a favor and power them down
F/C                     G    C/G G7
Just so we don’t have a scene

Chorus
                  F/C                               C
And I wish it was different, but we’re just not the same
                Dm7                    C
At least we got someone we know we can blame
               F/C                C
You used to be OK and I liked you that way
      Am               Am7/G      D7/F#
But I don’t think that I like you better
     F/C              G          C          
No I don’t think that I like you better
