-------------------------------
VERSE 1
-------
C#                                A#m
    I'm the son of rage and love       The Jesus of Suburbia
    F#                               G#
The bible of none of the above, on a steady diet of
C#                                A#m
    Soda pop and Ritalin               No one ever died for my
F#                                               G#
Sins in Hell, as far as I can tell, at least the ones I got away with

CHORUS
------
            F#                  G#           F#                  G#
And there's nothing wrong with me,   this is how I'm supposed to be
     F#              G#                             C#  G#  F#  C#  G#  F#
In a land of make believe that don't believe in me

VERSE 2
-------
C#                           A#m
    Get my television fix,        sitting on my crucifix
  F#                                        G#
A living room on my private womb, while the moms and brads are away
C#                                     A#m
    To fall in love and fall in debt       to alcohol and cigarettes
    F#                                 G#
And mary jane to keep me insane, doing someone else's cocaine

REPEAT CHORUS

C#  G#  F#  C#  G#  F#
C#  A#m  F#  G#
C#  F   A#m  G#  F#  G#

-------
       C#                         C#maj7             A#m       G#
At the center of the Earth in the parking lot of the 7-11 were I was taught
F#                      G#
    The motto was just a lie
        C#                               C#maj7                A#m                     G#
It says home is where your heart is, but what a shame, 'cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same
F#                      G#
    It's beating out of time

CHORUS
------
A#m      G#           C#                 F#
    City of the Dead,      at the end of another lost highway
A#m          G#             F#
    Signs misleading to nowhere
A#m       G#           C#                     F#
    City of the ***ed,    lost children with dirty faces today
A#m         G#              F#
    No one really seems to care

I read the graffiti in the bathroom stall like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall
F#                         G#
    And so it seemed to confess
C#                              C#maj7              A#                         G#
It didn't say much, but it only confirmed that the center of the earth is the end of the world
F#                         G#
    And I could really care less

REPEAT CHORUS

From Anaheim to the Middle East
                                 A  G#
We are the stories and disciples of
                    A  G#
