Intro

Am E Am G E

Am E Am G E

Amwell, i’m afraid that the circles i’ve been Edrinking myself aren’t big enough for the vowels that Ami try to fit Ginside of Ethem. Amwhen i was young, i drank too much, and i’d be lEying if i said i didn’t feel so goddamn young tonight;Am maybe too Gyoung to ask what’s on my Emind. Flike: if freedom means Amdoing what you want (well), Edon’t you gotta want Amsomething? Fand won’t you tell me that we Amwant something more than just more Ebeer? and my friends, if that ain’t true, won’t you lie to me tonight? Amwell, i’ve been listening to minor Ethreat records all day, and shit if i do not know every word. Ami sing Galong as i tie Eoff. Amand ian screams he’s “out of step” as i Ethrow the cotton into the spoon, draw up into the syringe. Ami’ll know just what he Gmeans until i hit a Evein.

F Am E

but aAmfter that i won’t have to bother with knowing who i am, for a while at least. Fin a moment the whole Amworld is gonna melt around me, Eand i’ll swear i don’t miss it as a i lie to you tonight. Cbecause i’m aEfraid to look the Amworld in the Feye. Cif nothing’s Egonna change, well,Am then i’d rather Fdie. Cand i’m too unemployed to Eorganize a union; i’m Amtoo intoxicated Fto tear down a building. Ci’m too hopeless to Elook for a solution; i’m Amafraid that if i found one, i’d Fbe out of excuses for the Cway i waste away in the Egutters that i chose like Amfashion accessories to go Fwith my dirty clothes. i Chaven’t bathed in months, but you Eknow it’s not because i’ve beenAm fighting bourgeois morals: i’m just lFazy and i’m young. Ami’ve seen the best minds of my generEation dying drunk or high from the rooftops to the parking lots, Amstomped to death in wGest philadelphian sEquats. Amthey’ve got me waiting on a day when we can Esay “fuck the police!” with a little bit of integrity, Amwhen it will mean: “i’ve Ggot your back if you’ve got mEine!”

F Am E

give me aAm scene where i believe in more than bad hair cuts, guilt, and misery. Fi don’t know where i fit between the Amvegans and the nihilists. Ethat might be the first thing i’ve said that wasn’t a lie tonight.

C E Am

because there’s gotta be Fsomething more than lying in the front yard, naked, screaming at the constellations.

C E Am

i want sometFhing more than an apology to say when i look the world in the eye. i’ll tell you, man, Cmy friend william came to me with Ea message of hope. it wenAmt: “fuck you and everything Fthat you think you know.

C E

Amif you don’Ft step outside the things that you believe they’re gonna kill you.” he said: “Cno one’s gonna stop you from Edying young, and miserable, and Amright, but if you want something Fbetter, you gotta put that shit aside.”

C E Am

i thought about how for thousFands of years there have been people who told us that things can’t go on like this: Cfrom jesus chris to the Ediggers, from malthus to Amzerzan, from karl marx toF huey newton, but the shit goes Con and on and Eon and on and Amon and on and Fon and on x 3? (first time short, second time strum, end on C) Gnow, i’m not saying that Fwe can’t change the world, because Ceverybody Edoes at least a Amlittle bit of tFhat. Cbut i won’t sEhit myself: Amthe way i’m living is a Ftemper tantrum

C E Am

and i need soFmething else, need something else, need something else to stay alive. C E Am F jam

F Am E

and on the niAmght that i play my last show, i’ll be singing so loud that my heart explodes. Fand i’ll be singing, and Ami’ll be singing: we are Efree! Foh, but won’tAm you promise me that we Ewon’t ever forget what thAme means? Fi know it’s hard to Amgive a shit sometimes,E but promise me we’ll always try. Fbecause i don’t wanna Amhate you, and i don’t wanna Ehate me, Fand i don’t Amwanna have to hate Eeverything anymore. | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note | b Bend | pb Pre-bend | br Bend release | pbr Pre-bend release | brb Bend release bend
