F#
I don't care about the state of my hair

       B
I get something out of nothing that just wasn't there

         F#                E                    F#
And your kiss kiss kiss is never gonna blow me away

F#
Dreams of escape keep me awake

    B
I'm never gonna get out and make it away

      F#                 E               F#
I'm a stone dead tripper dying in a fantasy

       B
Like a cracked open sky it helps you to die

                                                      F#
Don't split it, scrape it - you're screamin automatic pain

       E
You're too young kid you're gonna get hit

                                                         F#
Looks like you're never gonna make it off the government list

F#
I don't mind about the state of my mind

        B
But you know it's good for nothing and I left you behind

       F#                      B                     F#
It's a sick sick city but it's never gonna make me insane

F#
If you're talking for real then go cut a deal

       B
You're facing up to living out the way that you feel

        F#                        B                         F#
And you shake shake shake cuz you know you'll never make it away


       B
Like a cracked open sky it helps you to die

                                                      F#
Don't split it, scrape it - you're screamin automatic pain

       E
You're too young kid you're gonna get hit

                                                         F#
Looks like you're never gonna make it off the government list
