Powerlessness Acoustic by Jeff Rosenstock Guitar Chords



(Bmaj)
This just dawned on me
                    (Emaj)                  (G#maj)*
I haven't spoken to another person in a week
(Bmaj)
I've been sitting silently
            (Emaj)                (G#maj)*
Telling myself I need time to think
(Emaj)
I met you at the coffeeshop
                  (Bmaj)                         (G#maj)*
We marched on the interstate and blocked the cops
(Emaj)
The echoes of the flash grenades
            (Bmaj)                (G#maj)*
Rang in our ears as we moved along

(Bmaj)
I called it "positivity,"
                  (Emaj)                    (G#maj)*
And congratulated myself on a job well done
(Bmaj)
But after a couple of days
                (Emaj)                             (G#maj)*
The fire that I thought would burn it down was gone
(Emaj7)
Meet me at the Polish bar
            (Bmaj)                (G#maj)*
I'll be the one looking at my phone
(Emaj)
Shaking like a nervous kid
           (Bmaj)                 (G#maj)*
Absolutely terrified of being alone

B
So where can you go when the troubles inside you
(Emaj7)
Make your limbs feel like they're covered in lead?
B
How can you solve all the problems around you
(Emaj7)
When you can't even solve the ones in your head?
   B       E     B
I need you right now
   B       E     B
I need you right now
  (Emaj)*                 C#m
Before I feel totally dead

E        G       B          
WHOOOOOO OOOOOOO OOOOOH!
E        G 
WHOOOOOO OOOOOOO -
(Bmaj)
It came on suddenly
                    (Emaj)                  (G#maj)*
I haven't spoken to another person in a month
(Bmaj)
Well, small talk, OBVIOUSLY
               (Emaj)                  G*
But nothing beyond barely catching up
(Emaj7)
I have lots of things to say
                        B         (G#maj)m
But they're gonna sound dumb dumb dumb
(Emaj7)
I have lots of things to say
                B   (G#maj)m
But I'm just an idiot

B
So where can you go when the troubles inside you
E
Make your limbs feel like they're covered in lead?
B
How can you solve all the problems around you
E
When you can't even solve the ones in your head?
   B       E     B
I need you right now
   B       E     B
I need you right now
   (Emaj)*                C#m
Before I feel totally dead

E        G       B          
WHOOOOOO OOOOOOO OOOOOH!

Aadd9
Shriek into the toxic well
      E                     (Bmaj)*
Where everybody's screaming for themselves
    Aadd9                              F#
And leaves no space to process feeling lost
      Aadd9
These overwhelming distractions
        E              (Bmaj)*         Aadd9
Lead to pow-pow-pa-powerlessness
                               F#
And I feel too weak to walk it off

[Break]
(Bmaj)* E (G#maj)m (x2)

(Emaj7)
Meet me at the Polish bar
            B                 (G#maj)m
I'll be the one looking at my phone
(Emaj7)
Shaking like a nervous kid
        B                   (G#maj)m
Totally terrified of being alone

Before I feel totally dead

E        G       B         
WHOOOOOO OOOOOOO OOOOOH!  (x3)
E        G       (Bmaj)*
WHOOOOOO O O O O OOH
