Jesus of Suburbia  Green Day

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



-------

[C#]    I'm the son of rage and love  [A#]     The Jesus of Suburbia
The [F#]bible of none of the above, on a [G#]steady diet of
[C#]    Soda pop and Ritalin          [A#]     No one ever died for my
[F#]Sins in Hell, as far as I can tell, at least the [G#]ones I got away with
CHORUS
------

And there's [F#]nothing wrong with m[G#]e,   this is [F#]how I'm supposed to [G#]be
In a [F#]land of make bel[G#]ieve that don't believe in me  [C#]    [G#]    [F#]    [C#]    [G#]    [F#]

VERSE 2
-------

[C#]    Get my television fix,   [A#]     sitting on my crucifix
A [F#]living room on my private womb, while the [G#]moms and brads are away
[C#]    To fall in love and fall in debt   [A#]    to alcohol and cigarettes
And [F#]mary jane to keep me insane, doing [G#]someone else's cocaine

REPEAT CHORUS

[C#]    [F]    [A#]    [G#]    [F#]    [G#]                 
Part II: City Of The ***ed (4/4)
---------------------------------

VERSE 1 (some chords are arranged for guitar from piano)
-------

At the [C#]center of the Earth in the [C]parking lot of the [A#]7-11 were [G#]I was taught
[F#]    The motto was just a[G#] lie
It says [C#]home is where your heart is, but [C]what a shame, 'cause [A#]everyone's heart doesn't [G#]beat the same
[F#]    It's beating out of [G#]time

CHORUS
------

[A#]    City of[G#] the Dead, [C#]     at the end of [F#]another lost highway
[A#]    Signs mis[G#]leading to nowhe[F#]re
[A#]    City of[G#] the ***ed,[C#]    lost children with d[F#]irty faces today
[A#]    No one [G#]really seems to [F#]care

VERSE 2 (same as first)
-----------------------

I [C#]read the graffiti in the [C]bathroom stall like the [A#]holy scriptures of a [G#]shopping mall
[F#]    And so it seemed to con[G#]fess
[C#]It didn't say much, but it only [C]confirmed that the [A#]center of the earth is the [G#]end of the world
[F#]    And I could really care[G#] less

REPEAT CHORUS

Part III: I Don't Care (3/3 turning into 4/4)

[G#]I don't care [C#]if you don't, [G#]I don't care [C#]if you don't, [F#]I don't care [C#]if you don't [G#]care
[G#]I don't care [C#]if you don't, [G#]I don't care [C#]if you don't, [F#]I don't care [C#]if you don't [G#]care
[G#]I don't care [C#]if you don't, [G#]I don't care [C#]if you don't, [F#]I don't care [C#]if you don't [G#]care
[F#]I   [G#]don't [C#]care  [A]   [G#]    [C#]    [A]   [G#]    [C#]    [A]   [G#]    [C#]    [A]   [G#]

Everyone's so full of [A]***[G#]
Born and raised by hypo[A]cri[G#]tes
Hearts recycled but never [A]sav[G#]ed
From the cradle to the [A]gra[G#]ve
We are the kids of war and [A]pea[G#]ce
From Anaheim to the Middle [A]Eas[G#]t
We are the stories and disciples [A]of [G#]
The Jesus of Suburbi[A]a  [G#]

[G#]   Dearly beloved are [C]you listening?
I [C#]can't remember a word that you were [G#]saying [D#]
[G#]   Are we demented or am [C]I disturbed?
The [C#]space that's in between insane and [G#]insecure  [D#]

[G#]    [C]   [C#]    [G#]    [D#]                      
[G#]   Oh therapy, can you please [C]fill the void?
[C#]Am I retarded or am I jus[G#]t over[D#]joyed
[G#]   Nobody's perfect and I [C]stand accused
