Verse One:

[Dm9] [Am] [G] 
You alw[Am]ays said you were the compassionate one
[Dm9] [Am] [G] 
[Am9] But now you're laughing at the sun
[Dm9] [FMaj7] [Am] 
With[G] all your high class friends you think you've got it made
[Dm9] The only thing you made was that tanned look o[Gsus4]n your face
[Dm] With all your cig[G]arettes and fancy cars
[Dm7] You ain't a c[Em]lue who or what you are

You're drea[Am9]ming your[A] life [Am9]away

Verse Two (as verse one):

We used to sit and talk about primsl scream
To exorcise our past was our adolescent dream
But now it's sink or swim since your memory fails
Now in Neptune's kitchen you will be food for killer whales
And on the crucifix his mother made
Hangs one more martyr to the hit parade
(Chorus -- Repeat)

[Bsus4] [Bm7] [Bm9] [E] 
[Bsus4] [Bm7] [Bm9] [E] 
(Chorus -- Repeat)

[Am9] [Am] [Am9] You're dreaming[G] [Gsus4] [G]
[F/B] [F] [F/B] [G] [E] [Gsus4] [G] [G2]
