[intro] |A Bm G|A Bm G|A Bm G|A A |
|A A7 A6 A I like nightmares |A A7 A6 A I like being witless |A A7 A6 A One for the news flash |A A7 A6 A Cool eyewitness
|E5 F#m5 Bm G |D Dsus4 D Eighty-one, eighty-two, eighty-three, it's happening |A Gotta be a fucking fool to blame TV |D Dsus4 D Don't get trapped in |Bm G If you're lucky, be the same as me |A A7 A6 A I like nightmares |A A7 A6 A Yes, I do
|D G |D There's a simple way to die they call it news |D G |A D/A A There's a simple way to fly they call it booze |G F |G There's an easy quiet escape, just sleep and cruise |G F |A A | It's justifiable rape, they say you choose

And I like nightmares I like feeling cheekless [?] Lifting up my lighter [?] Watching life with west [?]
'81, '82, '83, it's happening Can we afford strike three Don't trust the captain He's just a boy like me And I like nightmares, yes, I do
There's a common way to weep, they say just smoke You can cry yourself to sleep, they say just toke There's a path that never fails, you can't get lost Don't need roads, you're on rails, I'll pay the cost
And I like nightmares, yes, I do
[bridge] |G C |D We were wasted, but you're only waylaid once |G C |G What we tasted was a voucher, pay their lunch |C G We robbed their banks and we took their gold |Am Bm And our lies in the tank must've sounded old |A D/A |A But we pleaded
|G C |D E |A A I said, "You're honor were not chumps, after all, we only did it once."
We like nightmares We taste our fitness All kind of goulash A taint in the midwest
'81, '82, '83, it's happening Nothing votes interest free Don't care what it's wrapped in You can be abreast like me |A A7 A6 A And I like nightmares |A A7 A6 A Yes, I do Bm G |A Bm G |A A || I like nightmares
