[riff]
         D
Well you read the books your father gave you,
D/B
Ate the food your mother made you,
D/F#              G
And left us all behind.

    D
Now growing up is always tough,
      D/B
Cause no one seems to know enough,
     D/F#                   G
Like whether or not you are fine.

Once upon a time they told you,
Everything in life will hold you
Up to the burning flame.
The arguments of lonely men,
With topics like estrogen,
Never far behind.

[riff]


D
Iím going to breathe in for myself,
D/B
   Oxygen for my health,
D/F#
Topic of grandeur,
      G
And a lonely lonesome lullaby.

Iím going to breathe in for myself,
Oxygen for my health,
Topic of grandeur,
And a lonely lonesome lullaby.
[riff]

Well you gave it up to please yourself,
Morals left right at the door,
Saw it as a means to an end.
Relying on the bathroom floor,
A picture frame, a fight for more,
Itís not easy to break free.
[riff x2]

Iím going to breathe in for myself,
Oxygen for my health,
Topic of grandeur,
And a lonely lonesome lullaby.

Iím going to breathe in for myself,
Oxygen for my health,
Topic of grandeur,
And a lonely lonesome lullaby. 

then the riff is played over "Lonely lonesome lullaby" 4 times
