(Verse Riff x8)
I am just a boy working in a record store 
Yes I moved to San Francisco just to see what I could be 
I am a loser geek, crazy with an evil streak 
                                                      (fill 1)                  
Yes I do believe there is a violent thing inside of me 
She is just a girl, she is doing what she can 
							(fill 1)
She dances topless when she's not playing in her band 
Such a pretty girl, happy in an ugly place 
Watching all the pretty people do lots of ugly things

D                        Eb
Yes I think it's getting better almost everyday 
A              Bb

(Verse riff x4 with fill 3 overdubbed x4)


All I want to do is lose myself in your room 
                                            (fill 1)
All you want is just a slow fuck in the aternoon 
I still see those scary guys when I am all alone at night                          
I kiss the ring you gave me then I swing with all my might 

(Chorus 1 riff x1 with Fill 2 several times)

A                    Bb
I think it's getting better for the two of us 
D                    Eb
I think it's getting easier for you and me to agree 
A                     Bb    
That the white men in black suits 
(no chord)
They are diminishing

(Post Bridge Riff x1)

(Verse Riff x4, with Fill 3 overdubbed over entire verse) 

Yeah she takes a bus over to the north side of the city 
								  (fill 1)	
She goes to work stripping for the rich white men 
All the words they give her make her feel so soft and pretty 
She wears them but they never seem to fit 

(with Fill 2 overdubbed over entire chorus)
A                        Bb 
Yes I think it's getting better for the two of us 
D                        Eb
Yes I think it's getting better in the worst way 
A              Bb            
I refuse to be afraid of almost everyone 
D                             Eb          
Afraid of all the things they do or the words that they say 
A                                      Bb (stop)                   
Let's live the way we want to live and hope they go away
