[Verse]

B7/F# AbThe comedy of man starts like this
E7 AOur brains are way too big for our mothers' hips
A7 EAnd so Nature, she divines this alternative
Ab A7We emerged half-formed and hope that whoever greets us on the other end
A EIs kind enough to fill us in
A7 EAnd, babies, that's pretty much how it's been ever since
B7 Ab7Now the miracle of birth leaves a few issues to address
Db5 ALike, say, that half of us are periodically iron deficient
A7 ESo somebody's got to go kill something while I look after the kids
Ab A7I'd do it myself, but what, are you going to get this thing its milk?
A EHe says as soon as he gets back from the hunt, we can switch
A7 EIt's hard not to fall in love with something so helpless
A7 ELadies, I hope we don't end up regretting this
[Chorus]
E E7 AComedy, now that's what I call pure comedy
A7 AbmJust waiting until the part where they start to believe
Absus2 AbmThey're at the center of everything
A B B7And some all-powerful being endowed this horror show with meaning
E Oh, their religions are the best
E7 AThey worship themselves yet they're totally obsessed
A7 Abm Absus2 Abm With risen zombies, celestial virgins, magic tricks, these unbelievable outfits
AAnd they get terribly upset
BWhen you question their sacred texts
B7/F#Written by woman-hating epileptics
[Outro]
ATheir languages just serve to confuse them
AmTheir confusion somehow makes them more sure
AThey build fortunes poisoning their offspring
AmAnd hand out prizes when someone patents the cure
AWhere did they find these goons they elected to rule them?
AmWhat makes these clowns they idolize so remarkable?
AThese mammals are hell-bent on fashioning new gods
AmSo they can go on being godless animals
[Solo] [Chorus]
E E7 AOh comedy, their illusions they have no choice but to believe
A7 Abm Their horizons that just forever recede
Absus2 Abm A BAnd how's this for irony, their idea of being free is a prison of beliefs
B7/F#That they never ever have to leave
E E7 AOh comedy, oh it's like something that a madman would conceive!
A7 Abm Absus2 Abm The only thing that seems to make them feel alive is the struggle to survive
A BBut the only thing that they request is something to numb the pain with
B7/F#Until there's nothing human left
[Outro]
AJust random matter suspended in the dark
AmI hate to say it, but each other's all we got
