Driving home from my meth lab

Realized something had changed

Looked in the sky

Saw with my eye
G C G C
The moon was following me

Where's the shadow government when you need it?

Sifting through the confetti
I picked up my broken phone
Looked in the crack
Somebody waved back
Just sitting on their somebody throne

Where's the shadow government when you need it?
Where's the shadow government?
It's a bad, bad world
It's a bad, bad

(Single notes: D-D#-E-F, one note per line)
[Cowering citizens:] [The shadow government:]
Up the library steps
Up the library steps
Up the library steps
Up the library steps
Up the library steps Here comes
Up the library steps The Humvee
Up the library steps The Humvee

(N.C.)
Crawling out of the flophouse
I saw the mayor stealing my junk
G C G C
I doth protest, citizen's arrest
G C G C
Now my body's in his trunk

Where's the shadow government when you need it?
Where's the shadow government?
It's a bad, bad world
It's a bad, bad world
It's a bad, bad
