Chorus 1:

       D                     Dsus4      D7sus4         G/D

  (2x)
    A5,    Dadd9/A

    Fmaj7/A,   G/A,   G5,  A5




Verse 2: (same as V1)

    We tried to speak between lines of oration- you could only repeat what we told you
    Your axe belongs to a dying nation- they don't know that we own you

    You're watching movies trying to find the feelers- you only see what we show you
    We're the slaves of the phony leaders- breathe the air we have blown you





Chorus 2: (same as C1)

    I'm the guy in the sky, flying high, flashing eyes
    No surprise, I told lies- I'm the punk in the gutter

    I'm the new president, and I grew, and I bent
    Don't you know? Don't it show?- I'm the punk with the stutter





Breakdown 2: (same as B1)

    My- my- my- my- my     g- g- g- g- generation
    My- my- my- my- my     g- g- g- g- generation





Bridge:

      D   Dsus2        D     Dsus2    G5/C
    I have to be careful not to preach

                                     G5/B
    I can't pretend that I can teach

                                        A7sus4   A7        A7sus4   A7    
    And yet I've lived your future out,  by pounding stages    like a clown



      D     Dsus2      D         Dsus2    G5/C
    And on the dance floor, broken glass

                                  G5/B
    The bloody faces slowly pass

                                   A7sus4   A7    A7sus4   A7       A7sus4   A7 
    The broken seats in empty rows- It all belongs to me, you know

      A7
    Okay!





Repeat Intro 2:

  (2x)
    A5,    Dadd9/A

    Fmaj7/A,   G/A,   G5,  A5




Verse 3: (same as V1)

    You declared you would be three inches taller- you only became what we made you
    Thought you were chasing a destiny calling- you only earned what we gave you

    You fell and cried as our people were starving- now you know that we blame you
    You tried to walk on the trail we were carving- now you know that we framed you





Chorus 3: (same as C1)

    I'm the guy in the sky, flying high, flashing eyes
    No surprise, I told lies- I'm the punk in the gutter

    I'm the new president, and I grew, and I bent
    Don't you know? Don't it show?- I'm the punk with the stutter





Outro/ Breakdown 3: (same as B1- repeat and fade)

    My- my- my- my- my                 generation
    My- my- my- my- my     g- g- g- g- generation

    My- my- my- my- my     g- g- g- g- generation
    My- my- my- my- my     g- g- g- g- generation
