A silly Stockholm Syndrome-y song:

3/4 time

I can't say this all came out like I planned it
C#          D#m           B          F#
And you feel the same way, I know
    C#           D#m         B       F#
But for a few contradictions demanded
C#        D#m       B          F#
I was happy, as hostages go
      G#m       G#m      B   B

[chorus:]
I did my best to comply
  F#     C#         A#m  B        
And when this nightmare ends
    F#        C#        A#m   B        
I think that we could try
F#           C#       A#m  B        
We could try, we could try to be friends
         F#            C#        B        

Who are you really, behind that black balaclava,
Shouting your urgent commands?
With your .45 aimed at the poor banker's daughter
Maybe you just need someone who understands

[chorus]

You sure make quite an authority figure
Having earned our anxious respect
But to look down and see red when you squeezed the trigger
It wasn't the thanks I'd expect

[chorus]
