VERSE 1:
Do as I say not as I do because
The shit's so deep you can't run away
I beg to differ, on the contrary
Agree with every word that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
My wallet's fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then I'll hit you again
I'm a smart-ass but I'm playing dumb.

VERSE RIFF x2

VERSE 2:
Standards set and broken all the time
Control the chaos behind the gun
Call it as I see it even if
I was born deaf blind and dumb
Losers winning big on the lottery
Rehab rejects still sniff the glue
Constant refutation with myself
I'm a victim of catch twenty-two.

CHORUS:

   D5     G5     A5 
E|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|-7--7----------------------------|
D|-7--7---5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
A|-5--5---5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
E|--------3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
                  I have no belief.
                  But I believe I'm a
   Walking contradiction       and
   I ain't got no right.

VERSE RIFF x2
REPEAT VERSE 1
CHORUS x2
VERSE RIFF x4 (let final A5 ring)

enjoy...
