Intro: A D

G                  C       G       C       G       D
Candy coated cannibalistic news flashed across the screen
       G                     C              G
Stay tuned we'll define what's wrong and what's right
       C       G       D
What's obscure and what's obscene

       C                     D
And the fat cat laughs as you lose your last chance
       G                     C
As his pants split right down the seam

       G              D
But if I ever get my break for God's sake
C                     G
I'm gonna make my break clean
       C              D                     G                     C
Yes I may be a dirty old man by the time I can beat down this dirty old scene
       G              D
But if I ever get my break
       C              G
I'm gonna make my break clean

A D

G                                 C         G
I've got bars on my windows and lines on my face
    C       G           D
I can't compete in this race
G                                 C         G
I don't like it when she's on the street at night
        C       G     D
She can barely go anyplace

       C              D
And everybody wants control of her body,
           G                     C
and I'm hoping the choice might be me

       G           D
If I ever get my break for God's sake,
C                     G
I'm gonna make my break clean

G                     D
If you ever give me a break
C                     G
I'm gonna make my break clean

C                     D                     G              C
Shake me I've painted myself in the corner of an escape artist's dream
                            D
And you know I believe it cause I just can't leave it
G                          C
I don't really know what it means

C                            D
I may be buried alive or just left in the dirt
G                     C
I'm fading as fast as my jeans

G              D
If I ever get my break for God's sake
C                     G
I'm gonna make my break clean
