(VERSE)
sitting in my glass house
while your ghost is sleeping down the hall
watching the little birds fly
kamikaze missions into the walls
think i'm gonna stay in today
sit on the couch and watch them fall

(VERSE)
life just keeps getting harder
and it just keeps getting harder to hide
the darker it is around me
the easier it is to see inside
outside the glass
the whole world is magnified
and it's half an inch
from here to the other side

CHORUS)

  Em                  G
I guess that push has come to this
     Am                 C                
so I guess this must be shove
      Em                   G
but before you throw those stones at me
         Am                      C
tell me, what is your house made of?
           Em                 G
and if you think you what i'm doing wrong
             Am             C                                     
you're gonna have to get in line
    Em               G    
but for the purposes of this song
           Am             C                                      
let's just say i am doing fine
                  Em                      
i guess i'm doing fine

(VERSE)
trapped in my glass house
a crowd has been gathering since dawn
i make a pot of coffee
while catastrophe awaits me out on the lawn
think i'm going to stay in today
and pretend like i don't know what's going on

(CHORUS)

(OUTRO)
Em
I think I'm doing fine!
Am (picked)
. . . doing fine
Am
. . . doing fine

Em (arpeg) Am Em Am (arpeg)
sitting in my glass house
I am
Em       Am Em Am 
sitting in my glass house
I am
Em       Am Em Am 
sitting in my glass house
I am
