SONG:   Protect Me From What I Want

Tabbed By: Brett Jackman - s20026022@nmmu.ac.za

I think the intro is played on a keyboard, but it is 100% correct.

Verse: 1
-----------------------------------
E                        C
It’s that desease of the age
                         Am
It’s that desease that we crave
                         G
Alone at the end of the race/rave
    F#                 E
We catch the last bus home

E                   C
Corporate america wakes
                    Am
Coffee republic and cakes
                          G
We open the latch on the gates
        F#                    E
Of the hole that we call our home


-----------------------------------
Chorus:
-----------------------------------
E                       C
Protect me from what I want
                        Am
Protect me from what I want
                        G
Protect me from what I want
F#
Protect me, protect me

-----------------------------------
Verse: 2
-----------------------------------
Maybe we’re victims of fate
Remember when we’d celebrate
We’d drink and get high until late
And now we’re all alone

Wedding bells ain’t gonna chime
With both of us guilty of crime
And both of us sentenced to time
And now we’re all alone


-----------------------------------
Chorus:
-----------------------------------
Protect me from what I want x3
Protect me, protect me
