Jesus of Suburbia

Green Day

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

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

CHORUS
------

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

VERSE 2
-------

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

REPEAT CHORUS

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

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

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

CHORUS
------

 A#G#C#F#
     City of the Dead,      at the end of another lost highway
 A#G#F#
     Signs misleading to nowhere
 A#G#C#F#
     City of the ***ed,    lost children with dirty faces today
 A#G#F#
     No one really seems to care

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

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

REPEAT CHORUS

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

 G#C#G#C#F#C#
 G#C#G#C#F#C#G#
 I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't care
 G#C#G#C#F#C#G#
 I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't care
 G#C#G#C#F#C#G#
 I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't care
 G#C#G#C#F#C#G#
 I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't, I don't care if you don't care
 F#G#C#AG#C#AG#C#AG#C#AG#
 I   don't care                                       

 AG#
Everyone's so full of *** 
 AG#
Born and raised by hypocrites
 AG#
Hearts recycled but never saved
 AG#
From the cradle to the grave
 AG#
We are the kids of war and peace
 AG#
From Anaheim to the Middle East
 AG#
We are the stories and disciples of  
 AG#
The Jesus of Suburbia   

 F#G#C#G#
 Land of make believe      
 F#G#C#G#
 And it don't believe in me   
 F#G#C#G#
 Land of make believe      
 F#G#F#G#C#
 And I don't believe, and I   don't care
 F#G#C#F#G#C#
 I   don't care, I   don't care
 F#G#C#F#G#C#C#C#C#G#
 I   don't care, I   don't care             

Part IV: Dearly Beloved (4/4)
-----------------------------

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

 G#CC#G#D#
 G#C
    Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?
 C#G#D#
 Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed
 G#C
    Nobody's perfect and I stand accused
 C#G#D#
 For lack of a better word, and that's my best excuse

 G#CC#G#D#
Part V: Tales Of Another Broken Home (4/4)
------------------------------------------

 G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#
 C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#
 To live and not to breathe, is to die in trage-dy   
 C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#
 To run, to run aw-ay,   to find what you believe  

 C#G#C#G#C#G#D#G#2D#G#2D#G#2
And I           leave behind                 
 C#G#C#G#C#G#D#G#2D#G#2D#G#2
 This hurricane of ***ing lies               

 G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#
I  lost my faith to this,  this town that don't ex-ist  
 C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#F#
So I  run, I run aw-ay,   the light of mas-o-chist  

 C#G#C#G#C#G#D#G#2D#G#2D#G#2
And I           leave behind                 
 C#G#C#G#C#G#D#G#2D#G#2D#G#2
 This hurricane of ***ing lies               
 C#G#C#G#C#G#D#G#2D#G#2D#G#2
And I               walked this line         
 C#G#C#G#C#G#D#G#2D#G#2D#G#2
million and one ***ing times              
 F#C#G#F#C#G#F#C#G#
But not this time                      

 C#G#C#G#C#G#D#G#2D#G#2D#G#2
 C#D#G#C#
   I don't feel any shame, I won't apologize
 C#D#G#
    When there ain't nowhere you can go
 C#D#G#C#
    Running away from pain when you've been victimized
 C#D#G#
    Tales from another broken home

 F#C#G#
You're leaving  
 F#C#G#
You're leaving  
 F#C#G#
You're leaving  
 F#C#G#
Ah, you're leaving home
