Bridge Sorry, I don't know this part :( Play Riff D(6x) Outro Play Riff D(2x) and Riff A twice, then Riff A twice, then Riff B Lyrics -INTRO- -VERSE 1- You take this all for granted, All the things they choose to feed you, By keeping you distracted, Just long enough to bleed you dry. -CHORUS- A reason for your anger, It's what I need, it's what I need To recognize the truth. It's what I need, it's what I need. So burn your paper Jesus. It's what I need, it's what I need. And own the things you do. It's what I need, it's what I need. -VERSE 2- Question what they tell you, All the lies that they are teaching. And they made a corporation Out of desperate people's feelings of fear. -CHORUS- A reason for your anger, It's what I need, it's what I need To recognize the truth. It's what I need, it's what I need. So burn your paper Jesus. It's what I need, it's what I need. And own the things you do. It's what I need, it's what I need. -BRIDGE- Somebody chose these words for you, Interpretations of the truth. Somewhere behind your fear they hide, To fill the holes inside. -CHORUS- A reason for your anger, It's what I need, it's what I need To recognize the truth. It's what I need, it's what I need. So burn your paper Jesus. It's what I need, it's what I need. And own the things you do. It's what I need, it's what I need. -OUTRO-
