Verses
             A              E 
Every Friday night in every town
    B                   D
the walls come crashing down
        A         E      B
and the man falls to his knees.
     A                   E
And, when the breakdowns hit
    B               D
the kids will go apeshit
    A         E      A
and tear down society.

    A               E   
The singer's on the stage
         B                D
with the spotlight on his rage
      A        E                A
as we wave our timecards in the air.
    A               E       B                  D  
For one man's rebel rock is another's punching clock
    A             E
the world is just pretending,
    A             E
the world is just pretending
    A             E          B     D
the world is just pretending to be scared.

A           E                   B                   D
Yesterday's taboos were cashing checks for you-know-who
            A        E               A
and there's GG Allin t-shirts in the mall.
              A                E
But, we're so scared of losing face
        B              D
in this faster, louder race,
A               E                   A
sometime's it's easier to just play ball.

       A              E
So, up there in garageland
          B              D
a hundred million garage bands
        A               E            B
spend a hundred million hours in the lab.
          A              E            B              D
Something old, something new, but the same old 'fuck you.'

Breakdown/Chorus 
(At first, just play fairly soft w/o strumming for first time playing this part of 
the song. After first play through, just put more energy into it- strumming, 
played faster; it's punk, do it how you want.)

A            E                B              D
We played it louder, but they laughed at us.
A            E                     B           D
We played it faster, but they were only acting scared.
A            E              B          D
We raised our voices to the heavens in disgust.
A          E                          B                  D
We put our souls through hell just to find them laughing there.

(After second play-through)

We played it louder, but they laughed at us. (So, what do we do now?)
We played it faster, but they were only acting scared. (So, what do we do now?)
We raised our voices to the heavens in disgust (So, what do we do now?)
We put our souls through hell just to find them laughing there. (So, what do we do now?)

                 A      E      B      D
So what do we do now? 

(play however many times to end the song.)

Dunno if these guys are still together, but they're a pretty great folk punk group 
out of Boston.
http://www.myspace.com/breadandrosesboston - Here's a link to their myspace which 
has some of their music on it and a link to a new band some of the people have 
joined. It's a great band. Check them out.
