Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
Am E Am G E
Am E Am G EAmwell, im afraid that the circles ive been Edrinking myself arent big enough for the vowels that Ami try to fit Ginside of Ethem. Amwhen i was young, i drank too much, and id be lEying if i said i didnt feel so goddamn young tonight;Am maybe too Gyoung to ask whats on my Emind. Flike: if freedom means Amdoing what you want (well), Edont you gotta want Amsomething? Fand wont you tell me that we Amwant something more than just more Ebeer? and my friends, if that aint true, wont you lie to me tonight? Amwell, ive 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 hes out of step as i Ethrow the cotton into the spoon, draw up into the syringe. Amill know just what he Gmeans until i hit a Evein.
F Am Ebut aAmfter that i wont 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 ill swear i dont miss it as a i lie to you tonight. Cbecause im aEfraid to look the Amworld in the Feye. Cif nothings Egonna change, well,Am then id rather Fdie. Cand im too unemployed to Eorganize a union; im Amtoo intoxicated Fto tear down a building. Cim too hopeless to Elook for a solution; im Amafraid that if i found one, id 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 Chavent bathed in months, but you Eknow its not because ive beenAm fighting bourgeois morals: im just lFazy and im young. Amive 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. Amtheyve got me waiting on a day when we can Esay fuck the police! with a little bit of integrity, Amwhen it will mean: ive Ggot your back if youve got mEine!
F Am Egive me aAm scene where i believe in more than bad hair cuts, guilt, and misery. Fi dont know where i fit between the Amvegans and the nihilists. Ethat might be the first thing ive said that wasnt a lie tonight.
C E Ambecause theres gotta be Fsomething more than lying in the front yard, naked, screaming at the constellations.
C E Ami want sometFhing more than an apology to say when i look the world in the eye. ill 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 EAmif you donFt step outside the things that you believe theyre gonna kill you. he said: Cno ones gonna stop you from Edying young, and miserable, and Amright, but if you want something Fbetter, you gotta put that shit aside.
C E Ami thought about how for thousFands of years there have been people who told us that things cant 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, im not saying that Fwe cant change the world, because Ceverybody Edoes at least a Amlittle bit of tFhat. Cbut i wont sEhit myself: Amthe way im living is a Ftemper tantrum
C E Amand i need soFmething else, need something else, need something else to stay alive. C E Am F jam
F Am Eand on the niAmght that i play my last show, ill be singing so loud that my heart explodes. Fand ill be singing, and Amill be singing: we are Efree! Foh, but wontAm you promise me that we Ewont ever forget what thAme means? Fi know its hard to Amgive a shit sometimes,E but promise me well always try. Fbecause i dont wanna Amhate you, and i dont wanna Ehate me, Fand i dont 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
