F G C Am (x2)

[Verse 1]
F                     G
Wake up with somebody near you
       C              Am
And at someone else's place
F                               G
You took acid and looked in the mirror
            C                          Am
Watched the beard crawl around on your face
F                      G
Oh, the revolution was here
            C                      Am
That would set you free from those bourgeoisie
F                            G
In the morning everything's clearer
          C                    Am
When the sunlight exposes your age

            F    G
But that's okay
            C    Am
And that's okay

[Verse 2]
F                                 G
Grab your clothes and head to the doorway
       C                  Am
If you dance out, no one complains
F                               G
Find the place where you can be boring
          C             Am
Where you won't need to explain
F                                    G
That you're sick in the head and you wish you were dead
      C                                  Am
Or at least instead of sleeping here you prefer your own bed, come on
F                     G
You just suck at self-preservation
       C              Am
Versus someone else's pain

             F          G
So you feel drained
    C       Am  F  G
And insane
    C       Am  F  G  C  Am
And insane

[Verse 3]
F                           G 
He was leather and you were screaming
         C                  Am
Swinging chains against the stage
F                            G
And you couldn't know he was leaving
         C                Am
But now more will go with age, you know
F                        G
So get up and stop your complaining
              C                              Am
You know that you're the only one who's been destroying all the fun
F                                 G
Look what happened when you were dreaming
     C                     Am 
Then punch yourself in the face
F                                  G
So you kiss and you clutch but you can't fight that feeling
          C                     Am
That your one true love is just awaiting your big meeting
F                         G
So you never even ask for names
         C                                 Am
You just look right through them as if you already came
F                                               G
It's a drug of the heart and you can't stop the shaking
           C                                Am
'Cause the body wants what it's terrible at taking, oh
F                            G
And you kind of remember the meaning
            C                           Am
But there's no going back against this California feeling

F     G
         C      Am
American dream
         F      G
American dream
         C      Am
American dream
