bass part and
just put it into power chords.

Verse 2:
Fingertips have memories 
I can't forget the curves of your body
And when I feel a bit naughty
I run em up the flagpole and see
Who salutes, but no one ever does

Verse 3:
Been around the world
And found that only stupid people are breeding
The cretons cloning and feeding
And I don't even own a TV

Verse 4:
Put me in the hospital for nerves
And they had to commit me
You told them all I was crazy
They cut off my legs 
Now I'm an amputee, God damn you

Chorus

Chorus 
(in this chorus, the last two lines are:   And it's a sin, to live so well)

Bridge:
(guitar part is same as the chorus, I think)

I wanna publish 'zines
And rage against machines
I wanna pierce my tongue 
It doesn't hurt it feels fine

I like to turn off time
Kill my mind
Kill my mind
Mind..............................

Verse 5: (guitar is same as chorus)
Paranoia, paranoia
Everybody's comin to get me
Just say you never met me
I'm runnin under the ground with the moles
Diggin holes

Verse 6: (guitar same as chorus)
Hear the voices in my head
I swear to God
It sounds like they're snoring
But if you're bored then you're boring
The agony and the irony
They're killing me
Whoa

Chorus 

Chorus (last two lines different)

1...2...3...4....

Again, I'm positively sure that these aren't exact.  But if you play along
with the song, it
sounds pretty good.
