Bastille - Snakes: chords

 C#                       Fm
Snakes are biting at my heels
                   C#              D#
The worries that refuse to let us go
C#                     Fm
I'll be kicking them away
                    C#               D#
When hoping not to let them take control

C#               Fm
Ooouh, I'm not ready
  C#        Cm
Drink to escape their minds
  C#         Fm
Show me distraction
C#        Cm
Even for just one night

Chorus:
            G#      C# G#/C
Cause it's easier to bury
Fm               C#       G#
my head in  the sand sometimes
            G#       C# G#/C
Yes, it's easier  to bury
Fm               C#       G#
my head in  the sand sometimes
       Fm
And I know, I know, I know
              C#          G#
it's not the right way to go
       Fm                                C# G#
but I pray for the ground to swallow me whole
G#             G# G#/C
Ooouh, I'm not ready
Fm             C# G#
Ooouh, I'm not ready

Now these days are feeling dark
We're struggling to figure out last year
When the woman on the news
Keeps saying things that no one wants to hear

Ooh, I’m not ready
Drink to escape our minds
Show me distraction
Even for just one night

Chorus:
'Cause it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
Yes, it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
And I know, I know, I know
It's not the right way to go
But I pray for the ground to swallow me who-ole
Yes, I pray for the ground to swallow me who-o-ole
Ooh, I'm not ready
Ooh, I'm not ready

"Come on, boys. Let's go tear this place apart!
(Woo, Oh!)"

'Cause I know life is simple when
I can just ignore it all
'Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know
Life is simple when
I can just ignore it all
'Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know

If I’m not ready ('Cause I know,
'cause I know, 'cause I know)
Snakes will consume me whole
('Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know)
If I'm not steady
('Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know)
Maybe they'll take control
('Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know)

Chorus:
But it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
Yes, it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
I know, I know, I know
It's not the right way to go
But I pray for the ground to swallow me who-ole
Yes, I know, I know, I know
It's not the right way to go
But I pray for the ground to swallow me who-o-ole
