The E and D chords that are used in this song are different from
the standard E and D chords.  
You can play this song with the standard chords so I'll leave
that up to you.




Should have talked it over
Should have thought it through
I think I might have bit off
A little more than I could chew
Well, I have got to get out
From underneath this weight
Or it's gonna kill me


But the shining of the silver
The glimmer of the gold
Kept giving me a fever
But left me feeling cold
I'm right back in the middle
And if I don't come out soon
Come in and get me


G                     D
'Cause I keep slaying all these dragons
More keep coming
G                  D
And I keep praying for this fight to end


E       Bm        
Uh, oh, here I go
D                            E
Wading through a lot of this stuff you know
Bm                        D              E
Juggling it all while I'm balancing on a wire
E          Bm
Slow down, I have found
D                       E  
Seems that every time I turn around
Bm                           D                   E    
Got one foot in the muck and another foot in the mire
Bm                     D        
Well, I'm scaling down pulling back
       Bm  D  E   
Got to try
E (cont.)
To simplify


E    Bm    D    E    Bm   D    E


I put my golden ring on
Unseen I went down where
War and peace collided
Inside the dragon's lair
When pleasure is your master
Convenience is your king
Your heart's divided

I keep weighing
All these options
More keep a coming
I keep straying
From the way I'm told

Repeat CHORUS and SOLO


- = end of bar

  D E G E 
D E G E 
D G E 
D E G E 
D E G E 
D C#m Bm

After you play those chords you play this riff:

|E --------------2--------------0|
|B --0--2--3---------------------|
|G ------------------------------|
|D ---------------------2--------|
|A ------------------------------|
|E ------------------------------|

NOTE: Before playing this part of the song I suggest that you listen very
closely to how Wes King does it.  By doing that you will be able to tell
how fast it is played, etc.

Then repeat CHORUS 4x.

That's it.  If you have any questions email me @

God bless,
