Intro I

A                               D       Bm
You sure you want to spend your life in jail?
A                        D       Bm
How you gonna spend your life in jail?

Verse I
D, Bm, G, A x2

D                 Bm          G          A
First break the skin, next open the wound.
        D               Bm          G           A
Now force your fingers in, and here's what you do:

Climb inside the vein and have some heart

"Pour concrete on me delicately, baby
so I can live my sedimental life sedentarily," all life

"blow my money on my favorite company
A
they can blow holes in my ozone
D
so pour that propane on my clothes
        Bm                G
I like it when my skin glows
A
besides there's nothing to live for"
            D              Bm     G                A
unless you live a little more like you're going to die
--------------------------------------------------------
Interlude II/Bridge (upbeat)

D, A x 1

D
so what the fuck are you going to do?
they robbed your life from you
                              A (pause)
tell them you want to get it back
     A
if you do, I've got your back
D
yes it's something worth defending
so throw caution to the wind
                 A(pause)
and other platitudes
      A
that were written just for you
D
take a shit in their swimming pool
let them chase you if you do
A
finally something is happening to you
D
put an axe through the TV
blow up your radio,
A
though you can't see them now
you'll hear birds singing in your soul
D
sneak your way past the gates in a hard heart shape
A
if you're gonna be a shark you better learn to stay awake
---------------------------------------------------------
