VERSE I
		   *
I   woke up on the wrong side of the floor
*	              *
Made, made my way to the front door
*                     *
Broke my engagement with myself (Go to HOOK)


VERSE II (Guitar part is slightly louder this time around
                       *
I   got a new start on a dead end road
*                  *
Peaked, peaked out regendered load(?)
*                    *
Owed, paid up all my debts to myself (Go to HOOK)


HOOK

Ab: 55555555/33333333 (play 3 times)

*               *
Perfect picture of bad health


*                       *
Another notch scratched on my belt
*                    *
The future just aint what it used to be
(The future's in my living room)


-Repeat VERSE and HOOK parts above (Guitar part is slightly louder
 this time around.

That's pretty much the whole song.  The strumming patterns probably not
exact, just listen to the CD and you'll get a feel for the right patterns.
The bassline is pretty simplified because I'm not a true bass player.  I
know Mike Dirnt adds his stuff in between, but I just gave the basic idea.
