C    C E7 Am     Am F C    C E7 Am     Am F C

C           E7                 Am                    F              C
well the authorities called me up, and said "you may well end up in prison,"
       E7                   Am             F
i said "i may well, but you know i'll run away before then."
 C             E7                      Am                F                      C
they said "you know we'll catch you,"  i said, "nah, you wouldn't know where to start,
        E7             Am                    F             C
you may well put me in prison, but you won't ever touch my heart."
   C                E7  Am               F  C                E7  Am              F  C 
my heart, my heart, my heart, my heaart, my heart, my heart, my heart, my heart, my heart.

C    C E7 Am     Am F C    C E7 Am     Am F C

C             E7          Am                   F
they say that kids my age think that they're invincible,
     C          E7                   Am              F
well that seems foolish, but i still know i'll never die,
            C         E7      Am                F          C
and it seems to be invincible all you've got to do is stay alive,
          E7            Am                      F
and i can do that on my own terms, stay out the conversation,

[intro twice more]

[on this next part your strum the 1st C and let it ring and then hit it again so it stops]

C                      C
because your laws mean shit to me,
             C                            C
they're just arbirtrary guidelines of absolutist ideology,
         C                                  C
and it seems to me when you're the ones out killing in the streets,
       C                               C                C    C E7 Am
you've got no right to tell me what to do if i wanna be free.
           Am        F      C    C E7 Am
because i'm not your property.
  Am   F         C
nah, i belong to me.

C           E7         Am                 F
they say my generation don't stand up for what we believe in,
C            E7                 Am                F                 C
i think it's all cuz we've been told just what to do right from the start,
                E7              Am           F
don't break the guidelines given, believe in television,
C             E7            Am                   F               C
well we still know what we believe when it comes pouring out our hearts.

[("our hearts") over intro twice to end]
