I didn't make these tabs myself. 

D             D/C#          D/C
here come the sidewalk boss again
                            G
telling me how i can't cave in
                   D
but i'm a study in black
                  E
need a pat on the back
                G
i looked up and smile
             Bb
a picture of dissatisfaction
D               A        G
and he can only see as a junky
Bb                D        A     G  
though i might be straight as an arrow
     D            A             G
he's busy shaking hands with my monkey
D            A             G
busy shaking hands with my monkey

D          D/C#                D/C
i go in my car straight to the bar
                          G
where my sweety pours the beer
                    D
for the millions of fans
             E
ignoring the bands
           G
he's in my ear
            Bb
wants me to live in denial
D              A          G
says you gotta settle for something
Bb                  D    A    G  
though it might not be really living
D           A           G
anything is better than nothing  (x2)

Bb       Gm               Eb                  Gm
no actor action man gonna move in and take my place
        Bb              Gm
i'll be pumping out the product
       Eb    D
just a total waste

D            D/C#        D/C
look at your hands unoccupied
                                 G
look at the lengths you'll go to hide
               D
your under the veil
              E
pretending to bail
          G
you gotta whole 
             Bb
lot of empty time left to go
D                A            G
now you've gotta fill it with something
Bb                    D     A        G 
i know what you could do - don't you know 
D           A           G
anything is better than nothing

Bb       Gm               Eb                  Gm
no actor action man gonna move in and take my place
        Bb              Gm
i'll be pumping out the product
       Eb    D 
just a total waste

D                D/C#                D/C
i'm here with my cup, afraid to look up
                       G
this is how i spend my time
        D          
lazing around 
             E
head hanging down
      G           Bb
stuck inside my imagination
D           A              G
busy making something from nothing
Bb          D     A   G
pictures of hope and depression
D           A           G
anything is better than nothing  (x4)
