[intro; piano arr for gtr]
|F     |C     |F    |C     |

|F                 
   He kicked me out
|C
   He kicked me out
|F
   He kicked me out
|C
   He kicked me out

           |F                       |C                |Cvii
You must've heard of them, a kind of screwed-up blend    
           |F        
Split personality
|F                     |C              |Csus4             |F
 Two sides to fight and argue all night   over coffee or tea

     |Gm                     |Gm
Well, that's okay, I wouldn't mind, touché
       |F                   |F
Or even three, and that's no joke
          |Gm                        |Gm
But with a four-way split, the pocket money's hit
   |C      C    |F   F/E  F/Eb  F(D) 
And all of me is broke

     |C            |C            |
I got four heads inside my mind
     |---------8---|---------8---|
     |--------(8)--|--------(8)--|
     |5----7/9-----|5----7/9-----|
     |5------------|5------------|
     |3------------|3------------|
     |-------------|-------------|

Four rooms I'd like to lie in
Four selves I want to find
     |C                      |F F/E|F/Eb  Bb6/D Bb6/Db |
And I don't know which one is me 

|  Bb6/Db Bb6/Db Bb5/D Bb5/Eb|F         

I get four papers in the box each day
Four girls ringing that I want to date
I look in the mirror and see my face
But I don't know which one is me (I don't know which one is me)

|F                |C                     
  He kicked me out, He kicked me out
  He kicked me out, He kicked me out

I wake up over here and then I'm over here
I'm trying to brush my teeth
It's little things that are hard
Like starting up the car and I'm still underneath

I get along alright, in fact it's fun at night
I get four-dimensional dreams
But I have to think before I take a drink 
I get hungover times sixteen

There are four records I want to buy
Four highs I'd like to try
Every letter I get I send four replies
And I don't know which one's from me

I've got four hang-ups I'm trying to beat
Four directions and just two feet
I've got a very very secret identity
And I don't know which one is me

[bridge]
|Am                                 |      |
   You think it's funny, I can tell
|Dm                                   |      |
   Well, you don't understand too well
|Bb                           |        |
   I get so lonely and turned around
|C                                 |     |
   But I can't let it bring me down

|C     |      |     |     |    |     |    |
    Oooh...

|F F/E|F/Eb  Bb6/D Bb6/Db |  Bb6/Db Bb6/Db Bb5/D Bb5/Eb|F         

I got four hang-ups I'm trying to beat
Four directions and just two feet
Got a very very secret identity
And I don't know which one is me
