[F#]I don't care about the state of my hair
I get s[B]omething out of nothing that just wasn't there
And your [F#]kiss kiss kiss is [E]never gonna blow me a[F#]way
[F#]Dreams of escape keep me awake
I'm [B]never gonna get out and make it away
I'm a [F#]stone dead tripper [E]dying in a fanta[F#]sy
Like a [B]cracked open sky it helps you to die
Don't split it, scrape it - you're screamin automatic [F#]pain
You're [E]too young kid you're gonna get hit
Looks like you're never gonna make it off the government [F#]list

But you [B]know it's good for nothing and I left you behind
It's a [F#]sick sick city but it's [B]never gonna make me in[F#]sane
[F#]If you're talking for real then go cut a deal
You're [B]facing up to living out the way that you feel
And you [F#]shake shake shake cuz you [B]know you'll never make it [F#]away
Like a [B]cracked open sky it helps you to die
Don't split it, scrape it - you're screamin automatic [F#]pain
You're [E]too young kid you're gonna get hit
Looks like you're never gonna make it off the government [F#]list
