Verse 1 (w/ Verse riff - clean guitar)
      E   B5 D A5          E     B5    D A5
I see you,     down in the front line.
       E              B5             D  A5       E     B5 D A5
Such a sight for sore eyes, you're a suicide makeover.
        E    B5 D A5                E     B5   D A5
Plastic eyes,     lookin' through a numbskull.
     E
Self effaced.
           B5
What's his face.
    D         A5      E        B5
You erase yourself so shut up.
          D       A5
You don't let up.

Pre-Chorus (w/ Pre-Chorus riff - distorted guitar)
B5                                      E
You have a growth that must be treated.
B5                                E
like a severed severe pain in the neck.
B5                                     E
You can smell it but you can't see it.
B5                        E
No explanation identified 'cause

Chorus (w/ Chorus riff - heavily distorted guitar)
E B5 D A5       E     B5 D A5
you       don't know.
E B5 D A5       E    B5         D   A5
You       don't say.    And you got no reply.

Verse 2 (w/ Verse riff - clean guitar)
    E    B5 D A5            E          B5 D A5
Hey you,      where did you come from.
      E            B5              D      A5      E    B5 D A5
Got a head full of lead, you're an inbred bastard son.
      E         B5           D       A5        E       B5
Do or die, no reply, don't deny that you're synthetic.
          D      A5
You're pathetic.
