A5                     D5            D5/C#
I am a scientist - I seek to understand me

 A5                       D5          D5/C#
All of my impurities and evils yet unknown

 A5                     D5              D5/C#
I am a journalist - I write to you to show you

 A5
I am an incurable

     D5            D5/C#        E5 
and nothing else behaves like me -

And I know what's right

                              E5                
but I'm losing sight of the clues

             D5
for which I search and choose

     E5
to abuse

           B5
to just unlock my mind

                  E5      A5
yeah, and just unlock my mind


(Intro Riff x2)

(Verse riff:)

A5
I am a pharmacist

  D5                  D5/C#
prescriptions I will fill you

 A5
potions, pills and medicines

   D5                 D5/C#
to ease your painful lives

A5
I am a lost soul

    D5               D5/C#
I shoot myself with rock and roll

     A5
the hole I dig is bottomless

     D5               D5/C#   E5   
but nothing else can set me free


(Pre-Chorus Riff)


(Chorus:)

A5                        G5
And I know what's right

                              E5                
but I'm losing sight of the clues

             D5
for which I search and choose

     E5
to abuse

           B5
to just unlock my mind

                  E5      A5
yeah, and just unlock my mind

D5

       A5            D5
everything is right

            A5              D5
everything works out right

       A5                   D5
everything fades from sight

          E5                 A5
because that's alright with me

(Verse Riff)
