Back to main riff for verse 2 then

Chorus
Am                                Fmaj7
Pay your surgeon very well to break the spell of aging
    Am                               Fmaj7
Celebrity skin is this your chin or is that war your waging
Am                  Fmaj7       Am                   Fmaj7
  First born unicorn              hard core soft porn
 C              G7         Dm9   Am              C                G7        Dm9
Dream of cal i  for  ni  ca  tion               Dream of cal  i  for  ni  ca   tion

Back to main riff for verse 3 and 4(they are played together)

Am                                        Fmaj7
Born and raised by those who praise, control the population
         Am                           Fmaj7
Well everybody’s been there and I don’t mean on vacation
Am                  Fmaj7       Am                   Fmaj7
  First born unicorn              hard core soft porn
 C                G7        Dm9    Am              C               G7         Dm9
