Amp Settings: Treble 10, Middle 7, Bass 5, Drive 6 (on most of song)

UPDATE(S):

5-1-07  - A couple things I missed from the last update 
7-16-07  - The lick that everyone wants and a few more little things

Ok, I didn't see any accurate tabs on here so I decided to poste what I saw Billie play live.
I split this into 5 parts as said in the booklet.

Lyrics:

My heart is beating from me
I am standing all alone
Please call me only if you are coming home     (Intro)
Waste another year flies by
Waste a night or two
You taught me how to live

In the streets of shame
Where you've lost your dreams in the rain
There's no sign of hope
The stems and seeds of the last of the dope    (Verse 1)
There's a glow of light
The St. Jimmy is the spark in the night
Bearing gifts and trust
The fixture in the city of lust

What the hell's your name?
Whats your pleasure, what is your pain?        (Chorus 1)
Do you dream to much?
Do you think what you need is a crutch?

In the crowd of pain
St. Jimmy comes without any shame
He says We're f*cked up!                       (Verse 2)
But we're not the same
And mom and dad are the ones you can blame

Jimmy died today
He blew his brains out into the bay            (Chorus 2)
In the state of mind
It's my own private suicide

Jesus filling out paperwork now
At the facility on East 12th Street
He's not listening to a word now
He's in his own world and he's day dreaming   (Verse)
He'd rather be doing someting else now
Cigarettes and coffee with the underbelly
His life's on the line with anxiety now
She had enough and he had plenty

Somebody get me out of here!
Anybody get me out of here!                   (Intermission 1)
Somebody get me out of here!
Get me the f*ck right out of here!

So far away
I don't wanna stay
Get me outta here right now                   (Intermission 2)
Just wanna be free
Is there a possibility
Get me outta here right now

This life like dream ain't for me             (Outro)

I fell asleep while watching Spike TV
After 10 cups of coffee
And your still not here
Dreaming of a song
But something went wrong
And you cant tell anyone                   (Verse)
Cuz you're not here

Left me here alone
Well I should have stayed home           (Pre-Chorus)
After 10 cups of coffee
I'm thinking

Where'd you go?
Nobody likes you
Everyone left you
They're all out without you havin fun
Where'd you go                            (Chorus)
Nobody likes you
Everyone left you
They're all out without you havin fun
Where'd you go

I got a rock and roll band
I got a rock and roll life
I got a rock and roll girlfriend
And another ex-wife
I got a rock and roll house
I got a rock and roll car
I play the sh*t out the drums         (Verse)
And I can play the guitar
I got a kid in new york
I got a kid in the bay
I haven't drank or smoked nothin'
In over 22 days

So get off my case
Get off of my case                    (Outro)

Lyrics:

Here they come marching down the street
Like a desperation murmur of a heart beat
Coming back from the edge of town
Underneath their feet                      (Verse)
The time has come and it going nowhere
Nobody ever said that life was fair now
Go-carts and guns are treasures they will bear
In the summer heat

The world is spinning
Around and around
Out of control again
From the 7-11 to the fear of breaking down     (Pre-Chorus)
So send my love a letterbomb
And visit me in hell
We're the ones going

Home
We're coming home again                  (Interlude)
Home
We're coming home again

I started f*ckin' running
Just as soon as my feet touch ground     (Verse 2)
We're back in Barrio
But to you and me, that's jingle town

Home
We're coming home again                  (Interlude)
Home
We're coming home again

Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home                                     (Interlude 2)
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again

Nobody likes you
Everyone left you                        (Outro)
They're all out without you havin' fun
