The Downtown Fiction - Where Dreams Go To Die 

Intro: G D C

G                             D
    Your breath hangs in the air.
                                   Em
It's freezing, but the bus ain't there.
                     C
You're wishing for someone to stop this.
G                    D
     Back in class again,
                            Em
You feel just like an empty pen,
                     C
Loss for words and void of purpose.

       G                      D            C
They cornered you, there's nowhere to get out.
How? How?

        Em              C
They'll try to convince you
     G                     D
and tell you that they're right.
          Em           C
They'll break you and beat you
       G             D
and steal away your life
     Em                     C                 G             D
And tell you that you're nothing and they'll never get it right,
     Em                             D               
But high school's the place where dreams go to die.

Inst: G D C

G                         D
   Teacher thinks you're rude
                          Em                       
Says, "I dont like your attitude".
                         C
Well maybe you're just condescending
G                               D
     But bring us up to follow rules
                            Em
And throw us all in cubic rooms
                     C
But we're not gonna sit by idle.

        G                 D              C
We're getting out, we're gonna find our way
Hey, hey.

Chorus
       G                           D
Well, we'll be more than they'll ever be
 Em                     C     
Just bitter from their own failed dreams.
          G   D                        Em        C
They're desperate, and do anything to bring you down.
        G                       D
Well, we'll do more than they ever did
Em                  C
Talk down to some poor old kid.
   G          D                C               
We are the ones, the ones who made it.

        Em              C
They'll try to convince you
     G                     D
and tell you that they're right.
          Em           C
They'll break you and beat you
       G             D
and steal away your life
     Em                     C                 G             D
And tell you that you're nothing and they'll never get it right,
     Em                              D
But high school's the place where dreams,
     Em                               D
But high school's the place where dreams,
     Em                               D         G   D   C
But high school's the place where dreams go to die.
