Kill the President

Hi! This is my first Tab, so if I've made any mistakes let me know!

Cadd4 is just a C with an f on the high e string added. I'm not sure if it's 
actually the correct name for the chord so correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, this is an acoustic version I made by listening to the original song as well 
as an acoustic rendition of it, so it likely doesn't exactly match either. I use 
almost all barre chords except the intro and very end.



[Intro:]
Cadd4 C (X6)

Cadd4               C  
What's the bullshit for?

Cadd4                            C  
Verbal battlefield. Syllables of war.

C
I shut myself off. It happens again.

C                                           G F#
You're not my friend. You're not my friend.


You're not my friend.

C G A F (X2)



[switch to barre chords]

C                          G                   A
The winter knocked down my door like a selfish bitch

              F                          C
I'm glad that you haven't got your  wish

                  G
in the cold, all alone, I've been thinking of

A            F
everyone but you.

       C
And it feels like seventh grade again

    G
and none of this will ever end

    A
I'm just your public malcontent

 F
another extraneous trend.

      C
Don't try to be like me 

            G
because I'm not one to compete 

     A                              F
to obtain the status of a symbol of idolatry.



[Chorus:]

A             F                       C
This time I'd really rather be alone.

          G
Can we forget this? I can just go home.

A             F             F   G
This time I'd really rather be alone.





C       G                         A
Acting unaffected by this hand of fate.

                     F                    C
Saying "everything's ok!" with a straight face.

                    G                              A         F G
I remember when you said I could count on your for anything.

                    C
...and I still hold on.

                          G
You'll hold off and play another dumb charade again.

    A                             F
I'm driving my car home and never walking in the rain again.

  C                               G
I miss the smell of Taco Bell and places that we knew too well.

F
Driving me crazy. Driving me crazy. Driving me crazy.

F
Driving me crazy!



[Chorus:]

A             F                      C
This time I'd really rather be alone.

          A
Can we forget this mess and just go home?

A             F             G        G#
This time I'd really rather be alone.

A            G  F              A
I'm bleeding profusely from my insides

C                     Em           G                             A
While you're smiling 'cause you're stealing all of my best lines.

            G            F             G
I'm doubled over and I'm taking my own side.

C                    Em     G
Over and over again. I'm so useless.

Em  A        G      F    Em
Now you're becoming everything.

      Dm     Em  F
(Well was I ever anything?)

C               Em     G
Everyone I love always leaves me.

Em A          G        F     Em
My judgment's been off every time.

        Dm         Em     F
(You're words will always still be mine)



[Chorus:]

A             F                      C
This time I'd really rather be alone.

          G
Can we forget this? I could just go home.

A             F             G        G#
This time I'd really rather be alone.

A            G  F              A
I'm bleeding profusely from my insides

C                     Em           G                             A
While you're smiling 'cause you're stealing all of my best lines.

            G            F             G
I'm doubled over and I'm taking my own side.



[Ska upstrokes pattern here]

    C           G                  A
And how I'll be slapped on crowded streets.

            Em                 Dm
And in some lame cry of defeat

          Em
I'll open up

              Dm
I'll shout it loud:

            G                        C
"Fuck that! Turn off the new sound!"

        G                  A
I'll be slapped on crowded streets.

            Em                 Dm
And in some lame cry of defeat

          Em
I'll open up

              Dm
I'll shout it loud:

      Em         F                              Dm
"Fuck that! Turn off the new sound! Fuck that!"

      Em         C                              Dm
"Fuck that! Turn off the new sound! Fuck that!"

      Em         F           G
"Fuck that! Turn off the new sound!"

[Chorus:]

C                    Em     G
Over and over again. I'm so useless.

Em  A        G      F    Em
Now you're becoming everything.

      Dm     Em  F
(Well was I ever anything?)

C               Em     G
Everyone I love always hates me.

Em A   G      F   Em   Dm
My judgment's off this time (for the last time.)

C                       Em   G
No one in this world is ever listening.(What's left beside me now?)

A     G       F Em Dm        Em  F
Pay attention now. Pay attention now.
 
C                       Em   G                                        Em
No one in this world is ever listening.(Pay attention. Pay attention.)

A                          F             G
Pay attention now. Better, pay attention now.

          C
Now. Now. Now.




[For this part, I keep playing the C chord, but change the bass note, like this]
E|---------------------------------------------|
B|-1----------1-----1-----------------------1--|
G|---------------------------------------------|
D|-2----------2-----2-----------------------2--|
A|-3----3-3-3-2-2-2-0-0-0-------------------3--|
E|------------------------3-3-3-2-2-2-1-1-1----|


         C              C
At home alone again all night.


(At home alone again all night...)

                               C
Expect the worst and you'll be right.
