Above riff x11 /w lyrics:
Subdivisions - In the high school halls In the shopping malls Conform or be cast out Subdivision - In the basement bars In the backs of cars Be cool or be cast out Any escape might help to smooth The unattractive truth But the suburbs have no charms to soothe The restless dreams of youth

G G A A Bm Bm Bm Bm To relax their restless flight
G G A A Bm Bm Bm Bm G G A A Bm Bm Bm Bm Somewhere out of a memory of lighted street on quiet nights
