Repeat Em Bm A Bm throughout the whole song.


Em    Bm                    A Bm
    I would turn on the TV, but it's so embarrassing
Em    Bm                         A Bm
    to see all the other people, I don't know what they mean 
Em    Bm                   A Bm
    it was magic at first, when they spoke without sound
Em   Bm                              A Bm
    but now this world is gonna hurt, you better turn that thing down
    
Riff

Em                Bm
    it wasn't me, says the boy with the gun
A                            Bm
    sure I pulled the trigger, but it needed to be done
Em                Bm
    because life's been killing me ever since it begun
A                             Bm
    you can't blame me because I'm too young
  
Riff


Em                Bm
    you can't blame me, sure the killer was my son
A                             Bm
    but I didn't teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
Em                Bm
    it's the killing on his TV screen
A                             Bm
    you can't blame me, it's those images he seen
 
Riff

Em                Bm
    you can't blame me, says the singer of the song
A                            Bm
    or the maker of the movie which he based his life on
Em                Bm
    it's only entertainment, as anyone can see
A                             Bm
    it's smoke machines and makeup, you can't fool me

Riff

Em                Bm
    you can't blame me, says the media man
A                             Bm
    I wasn't the one who came up with the plan
Em               Bm
    I just point my camera at what the people want to see
A                             Bm
    it's a two way mirror and you can't blame me
    
Riff
    
Em               Bm
    it was you, it was me, it was every man
A                             Bm
    we've all got the blood on our hands
Em               Bm
    we only receive what we demand
A                            Bm
    and if we want hell then hell's what we'll have
    
Riff

Em    Bm                    A Bm
    I would turn on the TV, but it's so embarrassing
Em   Bm                          A Bm
    to see all the other people, don't know what they mean
Em    Bm                    A Bm
    it was magic at first, but let everyone down
Em   Bm                              A Bm
    and now this world is gonna hurt, you better turn it around
Em  Bm                Em
      turn it around.
