Em7 Cadd9 

Em7                                          Cadd9
Tried to get the audience out from inside my head
Em7                                                                 Cadd9
And the things you say are beautiful, but they don’t make very much sense
Em7                                D                      Cadd9
From the day that I was born, they took me for all that I had
Em7              Cadd9
And I let them, ‘cause they let me in
Em7                D                      Cadd9
I'm so weak, I can barely hold this instrument

G       D                  Cadd9
I wanna do whatever you wanna do
G       D                  Cadd9
I wanna make fun of cops with you

Em7                                 Cadd9
You went on tour and I went on medication
Em7                                                                 Cadd9
I’ve been stuck in this waiting room and they’re telling me to stay patient
Em7                             D                Cadd9
So, I’ll close my eyes and I’ll sing this song for you
Em7                                  Cadd9
Celebrate with a joint or two, and a new backyard tattoo
Em7                                          D                Cadd9
And think of the time that we spent watching X-Files in your living room

G       D                  Cadd9
I wanna do whatever you wanna do
G       D                  Cadd9
I wanna find every truth with you

Em7                                                     Cadd9
And it all comes down to the knowledge that we’re gonna die
Em7                                                    Cadd9
Find comfort in that or be scared for the rest of your life
Em7                            D                     Cadd9
So, I sing and I scream and I strum and I try to help out
Em7                                      Cadd9
’Til I can build a little house that the government doesn’t know about
Em7                               D              Cadd9
But I’d rather be right here than anywhere else, right now

G       D                  Cadd9
I wanna do whatever you wanna do
G       D                  Cadd9
I wanna watch the empire fall with you


Em D C (x2)

Em                       D                        C                                Em     D        C
And it’s fucking with me that you didn’t see that it wasn’t them and it was always me who knew too much
Em                         D                              C
And I’m no storyteller the way you are, I’m just an angry kid who got given a guitar
Em                        D       C
But how dare you say that I’m too young
Em                                 D                C
To know that the ticket prices are going up and the trains still aren’t on time
Em                            D                         C
And the thugs that patrol the lines are the reason I’ll never pay my fines
Em                          D              C
And prescription prices are going up and we’re not making any more money
Em                      D      C
Tony’s wallet’s getting heavy, Gina's stomach is far from empty
Em                   D                  C
And it’s too many in my mind and now I’m living on the west side
Em                      D                C
You say “Breathe it in, breathe it out”, you don’t know what you’re talking about
Em                         D                   C
And it’s eating away at my insides and now I’m living on the west side
Em             D               C
And my mother says I’ve gotten thin
Em                        D                   C                                              Em
Don’t wanna see you for a couple of years but yours is a funeral I’d fly to from anywhere
