Tabbed by David B├ędard-Barrette, McGill University, Canada, January 2004

This song is on the Everything to Everyone CD. I hope they will make a single
out of this out because it is just brilliant. 

Thanks to a guy named Dave Patthews for his work on the song. My version is
basically his first tab with some corrections.

No capo and standard tuning. Any corrections are welcome !

1st Verse
---------
                               C#m
I'm not surprised it's come to this
                                        G#  G#/A
Sooner or later there must be another's kiss
                                          G#
Behind that kiss a promise of a life of bliss, yeah great
  G#/A                C#m
I won't be takin' the bait
           F#
I'd rather drown
      Asus2            Bsus4             E
And I will not turn my whole life upside down


2nd Verse
---------
                          C#m
Imagine everything you've done
                                    G# G#/A
Under a microscope on view for everyone
                                             G#
And if the King of Circumspection's here he's come in vain
  G#/A                 C#m
I won't be sharing the blame
           F#
I wear the crown
      Asus2            Bsus4             C#m
And I will not turn my whole life upside down


Chorus
------
C#m       G#              C#m
Nothing's good enough for me
            G#            C#m
To shake me from complacency
          G#               F#
I make my mind up and I'll never be


3rd Verse
---------
                             C#m
The kind of man who'd make a choice
                                           G#  G#/A
For if I hold my tongue I'll never lose my voice
                                  G#
If each attempted act of sabotage destroys all hope
  G#/A               C#m
I won't be needing a rope
               F#
I'm gagged and bound
      Asus2            Bsus4             E
And I will not turn my whole life upside down


Bridge

Riff 01

 Asus2                    E   Riff 01
And if the genie were set free
 Asus2                         E                        Riff 01
And by the laws of things like that, he's indebted to me
 Asus2                   G#               C#m
I'd bury my three wishes deep down in the ground
     Asus2            Bsus4             E
So I will not turn my whole life upside down


Solo

C#m G# G#/A G# G#/A C#m


4th Verse
---------
                        C#m
Though I appreciate the aim
                                              G#  G#/A
Tell Andy Warhol's ghost that he can keep his fame
                                       G#
I'd only use it to make everything the same again
   G#/A                   C#m
So don't applaud till the end
        F#
I'm not around
        Asus2            Bsus4             C#m
Cause I will not turn my whole life upside down


Chorus
------
C#m       G#              C#m
Nothing's good enough for me
            G#            C#m
To shake me from complacency
          G#               F#
I make my mind I won't make a sound
        Asus2            Bsus4             E
So they will not turn my whole life upside down
        Asus2            Bsus4             E
So they will not turn my whole life upside down
