[C#]A C[E]adillac drives down my street
[C#]A b[E]ead of sweat pouring slow down a palm line
[C#]I s[E]ee a bumper sticker: a bearded man with a wanted sign
[Ab/C#]A myth[A/C#] we'v[B/C#]e mad[C#]e to scare our fears away
[Ab/C#]A slog[A/C#]an th[B/C#]at we[C#] slap on all out misdirected hate
[Ab/C#]A mudd[A/C#]y sym[B/C#]bol m[C#]eant to mitigate our pain
[Ab/C#]But it[A/C#]'s re[B/C#]ally [C#]just a desert corpse we painted on a wall out in some cave
[C#]Any[E]wa[C#]y, [E]I don't know where he's gonna park that thing
[C#]   [E]  [C#]   [E]                             
[C#]My [E]neighborhood drunk's on line at the deli
[C#]Wit[E]h his shaky hands and his swollen face he waits for his coffee
[C#]He [E]blacks out curbside every night, then every day crawls back towards Wall Street
[Ab/C#]So I d[A/C#]on't [B/C#]see i[C#]t like it's "us" and "them"
[Ab/C#]I just[A/C#] see [B/C#]every[C#]body working for that same eternal weekend
[Ab/C#]Dronin[A/C#]g on [B/C#]and o[C#]n and on and never doing what we've wanted
[Ab/C#]Heavy [A/C#]legs,[B/C#] two [C#]steps behind some forever-dangling carrot
[C#]And[E] I'm tired of it
[C#]Wel[E]l, who's to say that we can't just fucking change it?

[Ab/C#]I know[A/C#] it s[B/C#]eems [C#]dramatic but I treat it like a crisis
[Ab/C#]From t[A/C#]he of[B/C#]fice [C#]to the coffin, all our time and talent wasted
[Ab/C#]And th[A/C#]at we[B/C#]ight [C#]against your throat, is that a noose dressed like a necklace?
[Ab/C#]'Cause[A/C#] from[B/C#] here[C#], I couldn't really tell the difference
[C#]Eit[E]he[C#]r w[E]ay I say let's not take any chances
[C#]'Ca[E]use I don't know where he's gonna park that thing
