Verse

Amaj7/E D/F#

this is the place

Dm/F

you'll end up when

Amaj7/E

you lose the chase

D/F# Amaj7/E

where you’re dragged against your will

A Amaj7/E D/F#

from a basement on the hill

Amaj7/E D/F#

all anybody knows is

A Amaj7/E A*

you're not like them

D/F# riff1

they hit you in the head

E7

and send you back to bed

A A7 A6

isolation called you and passed a tunnel into a

A#5 A A(b5) A* riff2

briiiight world where you can rule a place of state

Chorus

A Amaj7/E A*

but everybody's scared of this place

A

and staying away

A* E A

your little house on memory lane

the mayor’s name is fear

his voice patrols the pier

by a mountain up of cliche

that advances everyday

the doctor speak in clowns

he rings out loud

he’ll keep the doors and windows shut

and sware

never join a soul again

but isolation chased you ‘til every muscle ached

down the only road it ever takes

but everybody's scared of this place

they're staying away

your little house on memory lane

A E

if it's your decision

E Abm6

to be open about yourself

D/F#

be careful or else

Dm/F

be careful or else

uncomfortable apart

it's all written on my chart

that i take what's given to me

most cooperatively

i do what people say

and lie in bed all day

absolutely horrified

i hope you're satisfied

isolation pushes past something and chained to

a place where suffering’s a game

but everybody's scared of this place

they're staying away

A* E A A(b5)

your little house on memory lane

A* E A E A

your little house on memory lane

any part of this could be wrong, especially the chord names, but overall should be pretty close. its nice to finally contribute to the tab section.
