Am F C Thirty licks with a belt; same old tricks on myself. Dm And I wonder: Does everyone else live this way? Am F C A succession of tests, a triumphant success, Dm Each time I'm still intact, at the end of the day. Am F C Dm Am F C Thirty drops in a glass, keep my temper and pass Dm With my breath held. You bastards, you've lucked out again! Am F It's not really so bad. There's still mom, there's still C Dm Damage to do before they wrest the axe from my hands. Am F C It's no mystery: you should obviously go, Dm Before I break everything. Am F C You're always telling me that you're dying to know; Dm But you're not really listening. F Am E How do I manage to station myself in harm's way, F And only get hit with a ticket for loitering Am E That I have no way to pay? And no strength to argue. F Am E My personal demons can scheme with professional care... Oh, god, they're after me! F Am If I could shut them out just for a second, E I swear: I could stop this catastrophe. Am F C Dm Am F Thirty day guarantee, C But they can't have meant me. Dm After all, I was born to a child-proof world. Am F No sharp corners, or glass, C Small objects, or plastic bags.

F Am E Now all the demons are screaming, their wages aren't fair. I've left a secret kept. F Am E If I could shut them up just for a second, I swear: It'll look like an accident. Am F C Dm I could be decent yet! Am F C Dm Be magnificent! Am F C Dm I could be president...
