Verse 1:
        A                 C                F               D
Let me through, paper and pissed, Jessica numbers tell me if 
      A                C                   F             D
we're clear write me a store just take the letter to the door.

Chorus:
C                  F     Em     C             F       Em  G (F D)-acoustic
This thing is your mission; the lone wish and condition

Verse 2:
A               C             F                 D
Brave under the roar, Jessica numbers steal the war
     A                 C                 F           D
Slip through, ever the thief, this poster hero, up a sleeve

        A                     C               F               D            
Push me through, counting the lies, measuring all my shadows by
    A                C                  F              D
All stars shifting to men just take the numbers to the van
A                    G              D      A
Head tripping of the sadness as it passes, I've flown across
    G                  D    A                    G     
The window it frost and now...starting to feel the kicking here
   D          C                       D
At last yeah, something to keep it an eye on

     A                   C                   F             D
Lets fall, look where we land, just write the answer on my hand
