The Classic Crime - The Happy Nihilist
Tuning: Half Step Down

Am             E       Dm                      F        (G)
I am a happy nihilist, no absolute truth does exist
Am                         E     Dm                   
When I decide to shake my fist, I only got myself to blame
F
Cause we’re all players and life's the game

Am
I only take what I need, I am so light on my feet
E
I will not stop or concede, I am not driven by greed
Dm
No moral compass for me, it's all just natural feelings
F
Existence has no meaning, there's no such thing as happy
Am
But late at night when I sleep, I dream of more than I see
E
There's something burning in me, a driving need to be free,
Dm
Why do I sit here and think about the things that I need?
F
There's nothing left to believe, oh is it all just a dream?

Am C Am F 2x Am

F                            C 
I’ve taught this to myself, piled books up on the shelf
Am                               G
But it still hurts like hell to trust nobody else but me
F                            C 
I’ve taught this to myself, piled books up on the shelf
Am                               G
But it still hurts like hell to trust nobody else 

Am                          E
I used to read everything, I used to need nothing
Dm                    F   
I put my money on me, I used to be something
Am           E       Dm            F
Now I can’t sleep, cause I’m not happy

Am C Am F 2x Am

F                            C 
I’ve taught this to myself, piled books up on the shelf
Am                               G
But it still hurts like hell to trust nobody else but me
F                            C 
I’ve taught this to myself, piled books up on the shelf
Am                               G                     F
But it still hurts like hell to trust nobody else but me

Am C E F
Whoa oh oh...
Am          
Why am I haunted by the metaphysical?
C
Is it a cosmic lie or is it literal?
E
The books I read that used to free my mind
      F
Have made me more blind but the truth I’ll find it
Am              E
I was a happy nihilist
Dm                        F
Now I’m wondering why I exist

Am C Am F

Chorus
