Whatever It Takes

Am
Falling too fast to prepare for this
  G
Tripping in the world could be dangerous
Em
Everybody circling, it's vulturous
Em
Negative, nepotist
Am
Everybody waiting for the fall of man
G
Everybody praying for the end of times
Em
Everybody hoping they could be the one
          Em
I was born to run, I was born for this

 Am                                    G
Whip, whip Run me like a race horse
                       D
Pull me like a ripcord
                                  Em
Break me down and build me up
                         Am
I wanna be the slip, slip
                           G
Word upon your lip, lip
                         D
Letter that you rip, rip
                                  Em
Break me down and build me up

                      F  
Whatever it takes
C                              G                      Am
 'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
                           F
I do whatever it takes
C                                G
 'Cause I love how it feels 
                               Am
When I break the chains
                     F      C
Whatever it takes
        G                    
You take me to the top
      Am                              F
I'm ready for whatever it takes
C                              G                      Am
 'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

Am
Always had a fear of being typical
  G
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Em
Always hanging on to the visual
   Em
I wanna be invisible
  Am
Looking at my years like a martyrdom
G
Everybody needs to be a part of 'em
Em
Never be enough, I'm the prodigal son
          Em
I was born to run, I was born for this

 Am                                    G
Whip, whip Run me like a race horse
                       D
Pull me like a ripcord
                                  Em
Break me down and build me up
                         Am
I wanna be the slip, slip
                           G
Word upon your lip, lip
                         D
Letter that you rip, rip
                                  Em
Break me down and build me up

                      F  
Whatever it takes
C                              G                      Am
 'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
                           F
I do whatever it takes
C                                G
 'Cause I love how it feels 
                               Am
When I break the chains
                     F      C
Whatever it takes
        G                    
You take me to the top
      Am                              F
I'm ready for whatever it takes
C                              G                      Am
 'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

Am                     G
Hypocritical, egotistical
                                Em
Don't wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
                       Am                                         G
Working onto something that I'm proud of, out of the box
        Em
An epoxy to the world and the vision we've lost
             Am
I'm an apostrophe
                 G
I'm just a symbol to remind you 
                      Em
That there's more to see
                 Em                                    Am
I'm just a product of the system, a catastrophe
                  G                                    Em
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I'm half-diseased
                   Em
And when I am deceased
               Am                                           G
At least I go down to the grave and die happily
                 Em
Leave the body of my soul to be a part of me
I do what it takes

                      F  
Whatever it takes
C                              G                      Am
 'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
                           F
I do whatever it takes
C                                G
 'Cause I love how it feels 
                               Am
When I break the chains
                     F      C
Whatever it takes
        G                    
You take me to the top
      Am                              F
I'm ready for whatever it takes
C                              G                      Am
 'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes
