["My Brain Hurts"]

[ A / E / D ] x4 (with lead)

[Verse]
A (pm)                                            D
  Time gets wasted every day, I watch the minutes tick away
   F#               E                D
My brain is melting like a chocolate ice cream bar
     A (pm)                                  D
Like characters on TV these people look like maggots to me
F#           E                D
And I wonder what the hell is wrong with me

[ A / E / D ] x2 (with lead)

[Verse]
Milk-fed little beauty queen, she's straight out of a magazine
She sits beside me breathing different air than me
Perfect generation sees that I'm infected with disease
And everything just crumbles and there's nothing left

[Chorus]
     A
If I wanna do something right
        D
I gotta do it myself cause someone else will fuck it up
   A
It isn't all black and white
             E
And now it's time to stop and figure out reality
       A
No one knows what they're talking about
   D
If what they're talking don't make any sense to me
  A
I gotta figure it out
      E
Cause I don't want something to believe in

[Solo is played over these chords:]

[ A / F# / D / E ] x2
[ A / C# / D ] x4

[Repeat Chorus]

A    D               A               E             A
  My brain hurts, my brain hurts, my brain hurts today
     D               A               E             A
  My brain hurts, my brain hurts, my brain hurts today
