  C                                             G                          Dm
A public service announcement followed me home the other day.
  C                    G          Dm
I paid it never mind. Go Away.
C                                             G                               Dm
Shits so thick you could stir it with a stick-free Teflon whitewashed presidency.
C                                 G                      Dm
We're sick of being jerked around, wear that on your sleeve.

BRIDGE:
G                                               Am                    F                        G
Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord, count your blessings.
                                    Am      F             Em              G
We're sick of being jerked around we all fall down.

VERSE:
   C                                   G                Dm
Have you ever seen the televised St. vitus subcommittee prize
C                     G                      Dm  
Investigation dance? Those ants in pants glances.
     C                            G                Dm
Well,look behind the eyes. It's a hallowed hollow anesthetized
C                                G                          Dm  
"save my own ass, screw these guys" smoke and mirror lock down.

BRIDGE:
G                                               Am                    F                        G
Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord, count your blessings.
                                    Am      F    Em                     G

We're dug in deep the price is steep. The auctioneer is such a creep.
    C                                   G                     Dm
The lights went out, the oil ran dry we blamed it on the other guy.
C                            G                          Dm
Sure, all men are created equal. Heres the church, heres the steeple.
C                                  G                   Dm

Those chords are mostly correct, but I think that Dm within the C-G-Dm group that repeats during the verses, should be F instead. They both go well with the song, but I think F is better.
