Am E Am G E
Am E Am G E

am Ewell, i’m afraid that the circles i’ve been drinking myself
am G Earen’t big enough for the vowels that i try to fit inside of them.
amwhen i was young, i drank too much,
E amand i’d be lying if i said i didn’t feel so goddamn young tonight;
G Emaybe too young to ask what’s on my mind.
F Amlike: if freedom means doing what you want (well),
E Amdon’t you gotta want something?
F Am Eand won’t you tell me that we want something more than just more beer?
and my friends, if that ain’t true, won’t you lie to me tonight?
Am Ewell, i’ve been listening to minor threat records all day,
and shit if i do not know every word.
Am G Ei sing along as i tie off.
am Eand ian screams he’s “out of step” as i throw the cotton into the spoon, draw up into
the syringe.
am G Ei’ll know just what he means until i hit a vein.
F am E
Ambut after that i won’t have to bother with knowing who i am, for a while at least.
F amin a moment the whole world is gonna melt around me,
Eand i’ll swear i don’t miss it as a i lie to you tonight.
C E am Fbecause i’m afraid to look the world in the eye.
C E am Fif nothing’s gonna change, well, then i’d rather die.
C Eand i’m too unemployed to organize a union;
am Fi’m too intoxicated to tear down a building.
C Ei’m too hopeless to look for a solution;
ami’m afraid that if i found one,
f ci’d be out of excuses for the way i waste away
E am Fin the gutters that i chose like fashion accessories to go with my dirty clothes.
C E ami haven’t bathed in months, but you know it’s not because i’ve been fighting bourgeois morals:
Fi’m just lazy and i’m young.
Am Ei’ve seen the best minds of my generation dying drunk or high from the rooftops to the
parking lots,
am G Estomped to death in west philadelphian squats.
Am Ethey’ve got me waiting on a day when we can say “fuck the police!” with a little bit of integrity,
am G Ewhen it will mean: “i’ve got your back if you’ve got mine!”
F am E
amgive me a scene where i believe in more than bad hair cuts, guilt, and misery.
F ami don’t know where i fit between the vegans and the nihilists.
Ethat might be the first thing i’ve said that wasn’t a lie tonight.
C E am
Fbecause there’s gotta be something more than lying in the front yard, naked, screaming
at the constellations. C E am
Fi want something more than an apology to say when i look the world in the eye.
C Ei’ll tell you, man, my friend william came to me with a message of hope.
am Fit went: “fuck you and everything that you think you know.
am fif you don’t step outside the things that you believe they’re gonna kill you.”
c E amhe said: “no one’s gonna stop you from dying young, and miserable, and right,
Fbut if you want something better, you gotta put that shit aside.”
C E am
fi thought about how for thousands of years there have been people who told us that
things can’t go on like this:
C Efrom jesus chris to the diggers,
amfrom malthus to zerzan,
ffrom karl marx to huey newton,
c E Am Fbut the shit goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on x 3? (first time
short, second time strum, end on C)
g Fnow, i’m not saying that we can’t change the world,
C E am Fbecause everybody does at least a little bit of that.
C E am fbut i won’t shit myself: the way i’m living is a temper tantrum
c E Am
Fand i need something else, need something else, need something else to stay alive.
C E am F jam(ohohoh.)
F Am E
Amand on the night that i play my last show, i’ll be singing so loud that my heart explodes.
F am Eand i’ll be singing, and i’ll be singing: we are free!
F Am E Amoh, but won’t you promise me that we won’t ever forget what the means?
F Am Ei know it’s hard to give a shit sometimes, but promise me we’ll always try.
f AM Ebecause i don’t wanna hate you, and i don’t wanna hate me,
f Am Eand i don’t wanna have to hate everything anymore.
