I'm at my worst when it's not rehearsed

I don't wanna know the goddamn words
        F*                      Am
I don't wanna have to spell it out
            Dm                       F
Don't wanna mumble what I'm tryin to say
        F*                         Cmaj7
I wanna scream it from my foaming mouth

And sing and read and write like all the rest
               F*                  Am
We're all just trying to play our roles
     Dm                F
In a play that runs ad nauseum
  F*                       Cmaj7
I hate this damned enlightenment
        B*             F
We were better off as animals

Right?!

Cmaj7

Am           F              F*       Cmaj7
We're at our best when it's from our hips
Am       F             F*     Cmaj7
From our hips we don't give a shit
        B*                        F
It just feels good, and that's no sin
         F*                Am
It's the only way to feel alive
                 Dm                  F
It's the closest thing to being born again
         F*                       Cmaj7
And when baby comes it's job well done
            B*                        F
Roll in the hay, or a roll around the sun

Cmaj7

Am           F               F*       Cmaj7
We're at our worst when it's from our lips
Am       F         F*     Cmaj7
From our lips we caused a rift
         B*               F
And this world is falling in
      F*                 Am
From Babylon to ballroom brawls
    Dm                        F
Our words have formed a death sentence
      F*                     Cmaj7
And I wish that we had never talked
    B*           F
Our hips said it all-A-all-A-all-A-all
