1. The Last Of The Dreamers

Intro - Cm, Fm, G (x2)

CmThis is for the messed up kids, bound like dynamite,
Fm GThe wondering drunks out on the town tonight,
CmThe romantic killer whose never been caught,
Fm GFor the crackpot who hit the jackpot and stopped.
CmThis is for those who climb right to the top,
Fm GJust to feel what its like to drop,
CmFor the critical master converges,
Fm GFor the paedophile suppressing his urges.
CmThis is for the soldier in contempt of court,
Fm GCos he believed in freedom of thought,
CmThis is for the baby who struggles to talk,
Fm GBut can manage to gargle the language of god.
Cm Fm GThis is for the origami swan, who dared to soar up to the sun,
CmThis is for the outcast, the freaks and the schemers,
Fm G CmThis is for the last of the dreamers.

Verse 1:
A E DI wake up in the morning, take big pharma lozenges,
A E DSwallowing the juice of Israeli blood oranges,
A E D Then I sit down and read the newspaper,
A E DIt tells me the enemy and lets me know the saviour,
A E D This week's flavour, Asylum seekers,
A E D As I lace up my blood-stained sneakers,
A E DI turn on the television, what have I got?
A E DThe war rages on and it's only 8 o'clock
Chorus:
F#m D E A5 A/G#5 Fire, Fire, Well I wanna set the world on fire,

Re intro: Verse 2:
A E DThey say it's just been invented, And it's now in shop, heaven sent it
A E D And cures in always just one drop,
A E D So pay the doctor, to be the snipper
We want bigger tits, bigger, bigger, bigger, yeah!
A E DThis is how we use the greatest minds in science,
A E DNot a cure for cancer, but a profit for giants,
A E DThey blind the clients with advertisements
A E DIf security heightens that ain't progress, it's violence
Bridge: A E D (Same as the verse) And if you notice my grotesque, protest music, The choice is yours, you can slate it or use it, Fight the power? Man, we are the power! Planting seeds in concrete streets and they flower, Politics and love ain't meant to be sinister, Primitive but I can't find anything simpler, I float around the perimeter, I only the follow to mob to lynch the Prime Minister Chorus:
F#m D E A5 A/G#5 Fire, Fire, Well I wanna set the world on fire,

4. Dancehall Sometimes i think life is just a game, And i get the urge to jump in front of a moving train but, Like some kind of sick joke, you keep me alive, Every time i pass out, your there to revive. But when i die cremate me, turn my ashes into diamonds, And turn those shining diamonds into a crystal ball, Make it the centerpiece, glimmerin' and shimmerin' Spinning from the ceiling in the middle of the dancehall. 5. The Future's Not What It Used To Be Intro - Ebm, Ebm, C#, Bb (x2) Verse 1:
EbmWell outside on the street at 5am you know the world has a different face,
And at dawn in the park as the sunbeams break, the drunks sing amazing grace
C#While the ladies of the night take flight as a big bright light comes crashing down,
BbYou and i put the world to rights, in this forgotten little part of town.
EbmWell i heard that they say that the traffic wardens dances dick van dyke does
Throwing shapes around parking meters, to adored rapturous applause,
C#Singing 5 part harmonies and jumping over cars while others dare to sleep,
BbWith this city is my playground, yeah my circus is my street.
Chorus:
EbmSinging now, woah the future's not what it used to be
C# BbSo will the last one out please turn off the light, turn off the light
EbmWoah the future's not what it used to be
C# BbSo will the last one out please turn off the light, turn off the light.
Ebm, Ebm, C#, Bb Verse 2:
EbmWhen they came to collect the names of the lads who want to sign up for the army
They said they wanna grow up to be a G, gave up on trying be like dad the sparky
C#Why run around 360, like a dog chasing his tail
BbOr the schoolgirls dressed like hookers, the hookers dressed like schoolgirls
Chorus:
EbmSinging now, woah the future's not what it used to be
C# BbSo will the last one out please turn off the light, turn off the light
EbmWoah the future's not what it used to be
C# BbSo will the last one out please turn off the light, turn off the light.
Ebm, Ebm, C#, Bb Bridge: Ebm, Ebm, C#, Bb (same as chorus, but strummed fully, not ska) Killing and drilling, well its all they understand, In the Middle East and Afghanistan, They fight over turf, they fight over land, If you give them a ting-a-ling, While their trigger finger lingers, With the second gun slingers, They fight over that, There's no unity, just to you and and me Trying to keep our head above the lunacy, Its just the way we're living, And we will never give in, To this -ism schism prison That all men and women live in. They war over guns, they war over god, War over land and they war over drugs, They war, they war, they war over love, War over which god watches from above, They war over oil, they war over race, Some of them are warring just to save face, They war, they war, they war over debt, If it's a war they want, it's a war they'll get. Chorus (x2)
EbmSinging now, woah the future's not what it used to be
C# BbSo will the last one out please turn off the light, turn off the light
EbmWoah the future's not what it used to be
C# BbSo will the last one out please turn off the light, turn off the light.

7. 5 Bottles Of Shampoo (when it comes in it's F, Am, G F, Dm, G) She pushed in before me in the supermarket queue, Pretended not to see me in that way women do. She put on the counter som milk and bread too. Then she pulled out five different bottles of shampoo. And i thought to my self i will never understand women And i hear some of you saying, "But all men are the same, they're all ruled by their dicks" Well thats true of some but not all, dont point that finge so quick. There's some though in the clubs, pinching girls arses Being intimidating with obscene pases. A goddess, you can tell when she dances. But you shout slag when she rejects your advances. Its like you got no belief in your self. Or you aint got the balls to just talk to a girl. So every time after six beers, your aim of the nights to reduce her to tears. When she chats to me you spit and shout whore. Well it is written in the art of war to fight only the battles you can win. But i will defend your honour till they kick my face in. You can scrape bruised and battered off the floor Integrity's what black eyes were invented for. So down with the dick-tatorship thats so cock-sure, They use rape as a weapon of war. Down with the man who thinks its ok to give his wife a punch, Down with the judge who said it weren't rape cos she was drunk, To pro-lifers: be a doctor or foster a kid, Thats how you make it possible for people to live, (just drums here) But dont you dare tell women what they cant and cant do, When it was a women that gave life to you. Yes i'm a man, i guess a typical one, But i aint afraid to sai i think all women are beautiful and strong, Too fat, too thin, thats just media spin You look best when you're comfortable in your own skin, So im sorry if you feel undue If the truth be known im in awe of you, You're a giver of life and a warrior too, So do you really need 5 different bottles of shampoo? 8. Sex Education Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex eductaion. (chords are Cm, Cm, Eb, D-C# throughout) Verse 1: Up in his bedroom he has locked the door, The playgrough conversation was real hardcore. They arranged the meeting, he is right on time, See's the instant message from his friend online. Belly rushing, cheeks turning pink, In a blink his friends send the link. The little box asks him are you 18? His click of the mouse passing the testing screen. He never had that little chat with his dad, It weren't his mum who enlightened this lad. It was Indiana Bones and the temple of Poon, Saturday Night Beaver and the Sperminator 2. Two girls and one cup, one man and one cup, Some crackhead slut who's stuck for a buck. Belly rushing, cheeks turning pink, And in a blink his friends have the link. Chorus: Whether you like it or not, this is our Sex Education. Whether you like it or not, this is our Sex Education. Verse 2: He met her, introduced by a mutual mate, Finally she agreed to let him have a date. He was mutton like lamb, she was lamb like mutton, Just grateful no staple in her belly button. He was so new that he was confused, So he used her the only way he'd seen how to. The truth is she was used to this abuse, 'It must be love' she weeped, tenderly bruised. Now no pop-up books and no blushing teacher, No parents and no angry preacher. No cartoons and no diagrams, Just 15 girls and one lucky man. Warts and all with the moans and groans, EXs filmed on mobile phones. No giggling and certainly no doodles, Man that last one looked pretty brutal. Chorus (x2) Whether you like it or not, this is our Sex Education. Whether you like it or not, this is our Sex Education. 9. Shooting Fascists Intro - G

10. Headbutt Intro - C Verse 1
CShe had a scream that rattled, The seeds inside the apples
GWhen she uncaged her cackle, Jackals travelled just to battle
FShe gives the girls screwface, And the men crooked neck
GWhen she walked by my place, I heard a string quartet
CAsthmatics lose their breath, The traffic all gets wrecked
GThe Smokers laps collect, All Their dropped cigarettes
FKids fall onto the decks, Cos they dont watch their steps
And when theyre on the floor, They draw her on their etch a sketch Pre Chorus
G Am GShe says that life is like a jungle and not like a zoo
FParticipate, don’t spectate, Become the view
Am GMan if Scarface said it, It’s just got to be true
FSo this world, this world right here, This world is for you
Chorus
C GI said to all my mates, she wont make a monkey out of me
FBut when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
Yeah when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
G Am GIt felt like a headbutt, it felt like a headbutt
FIt felt like a heabutt
GAnd when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
Verse 2
C Staring up at the ceiling, Nurses face disbelieving
GScalpel on arteries, Organs taken larcenies
F Holds it up like a trophy, that heart belongs to Sophie
GSlices pieces of me, Each one beats individually
C So now I bite the bullet, Ill try to chew right through it
GGrinds my teeth to the gums, I gots to see what Ive become
F There is danger ahead, With a mouthful of lead
GBut when I fly, It gets harder to deny
Pre Chorus
Am GSo I stood on the shore trying to blow the clouds away
FRight back into the sky made out of papier mache
Am GThe Sparkles from the moon, danced on top of the waves
FLike they knew it was the last song ever to be played
Chorus

FBut when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
GWhen she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
G Am GIt felt like a headbutt, it felt like a headbutt
FIt felt like a headbutt
When she kissed me it fekt like a headbutt Bridge
GShe was up high on the stage just dancing it
FBreathing fire like God himself had demanded it
GLike heed personally asked and commanded it
FHeavens packed but thanks to her they’re still cramming it
AmShe made the sinners blessed by the way that she dressed
GStripteasing, fire breathing, dancing burlesque
FProducing beads of cold sweats on mens foreheads
GShe says welcome to the city of the suffragettes
And if you step out with me youd better step correct Chorus
C GI said to all my mates, she wont make a monkey out of me
FBut when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
GWhen she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
C GI said to all her mates, she wont make a monkey out of me
FBut when she kissed me it felt like a headbutt
When she kissed me it felt like a headbutt

11. Does Anybody Care About Us? Intro: F (listen for rhythm) Verse 1: F, Dm, Bb, C Does anybody care about us, Still living in the dirt and the dust? When a day's work is done and ive dug your new pond. Is it then that you hand me the brush? Does anybody care about us? Or are we really not worth all the fuss? Nobody's gonna come help us climb up, When they need us down here to clean up their muck. Pre Chorus:
Bb CDigging graves to climb out of the ruts
Bb CWe bear the scars from your cuts
BbBut ill always be the thorn in your side,
CI wont give up give up, wont give up give up.
Chorus: F, Dm, Bb, C Does anybody care about us? Does anybody care about us? The little bit we've got left, Were not gonna give up give up, give up. Verse 2: F, Dm, Bb, C Does anybody care about us? Or is it all about having blid trust, That it;s for my own good when my back meets your boot, So you can step over the mud? Does anybody care about us, When the orders fall from above? An eton crusader who say's they're our saviour, I swear i've seen this movie before. Pre Chorus:
Bb CIn the dirt the line has been drawn
Bb CCome the hour which side are you on?
BbIll always be the thorn in your side,
CI wont give up give up, wont give up give up.
Chorus: F, Dm, Bb, C (x2) Does anybody care about us? Does anybody care about us? The little bit we've got left, Were not gonna give up give up, give up. Bridge: Dm, F, Bb, C The final straw that broke the camel's back, They took away the welfare then gave me the sack. Well i've seen the rules that you call fair, When it's profit, you keep it; but debt, we share. The cycle of fear goeas around forever, The very idea that were in this together. Chorus: F, Dm, Bb, C Is anybody gonna fight back? Its just the start of an all out attack. Been held down forever, if we stand together, We'll manage to send them right back. Is anybody gonna fight back? Is anybody gonna fight back? We cant be divided nor kettled and guided, If were standing firm in our pack. Is anybody gonna fight back? Is anybody gonna fight back? Is anybody gonna fight back? Is anybody gonna fight back? End on: F 12. Everything Happens For A Reason

A E BEverything happens for a reason.
Verse 1: E, B, A, B I was being DJing in a club up in Liverpool, Busting x ray spex for the kids at grammar school. She was working there as a dancer, I thought that perhaps there’s a chance id romance her. We arranged to meet in different spots of the country, Had a good time though we never had no money. After a couple o’ week with my wide eyed, We moved to a one bedroom flat by the seaside. Chorus:
A E C#m B Time dont wait, like the changing of the season.

A E BEverything happens for a reason.
A E BEverything happens for a reason.
Verse 2: E, B, A, B We spent every minute that we had together, I thought that maybe this could be forever. Then 5 weeks later she’s always complaining, About how she feels like she’s fainting. So she took herself up to see the doctor, About 10 minutes before I had to go on tour. I was stuffing my suitcase with clothes and vaccinations, I get a text message, congratulations. Chorus:
A E C#m B Time dont wait, like the changing of the season.
A E C#m B Sometimes it makes no sense but it happens for a reason.
A E BEverything happens for a reason.
A E BEverything happens for a reason.
Verse 3: E, B, A, B My mom gave be the best advice I ever had, She said if your gonna be a dad, just don’t be like your dad. I had a textbook template of how not to be, I never thought out the whole crew, the first one would be me. When I got back home, we went to the hospital, She was scared and worries that we might of lost it all. The quack called us into his room where we had a scan, And I realised for the first time, id become a man. Chorus (x3)
