[Em]It?s that desease of the [C]age
It?s that desease that we[Am] crave
Alone at the end of the r[G]ace/rave
We c[F#]atch the last bus h[Em]ome
[Em]Corporate america wa[C]kes
Coffee republic and [Am]cakes
We open the latch on the g[G]ates
Of the h[F#]ole that we call our h[Em]ome
-----------------------------------

Chorus:
-----------------------------------

[Em]Protect me from what I w[C]ant
Protect me from what I w[Am]ant
Protect me from what I w[G]ant
[F#]Protect me, protect me

-----------------------------------

Verse: 2
-----------------------------------

Maybe we?re victims of fate
Remember when we?d celebrate
We?d drink and get high until late
And now we?re all alone

Wedding bells ain?t gonna chime
With both of us guilty of crime
And both of us sentenced to time
And now we?re all alone


-----------------------------------

Chorus:
-----------------------------------

Protect me from what I want x3
Protect me, protect me
