Verse 2: (same as V1)
We tried to speak between lines of oration- you could only repeat what we told you
Your axe belongs to a dying nation- they don't know that we own you
You're watching movies trying to find the feelers- you only see what we show you
We're the slaves of the phony leaders- breathe the air we have blown you
Chorus 2: (same as C1)
I'm the guy in the sky, flying high, flashing eyes
No surprise, I told lies- I'm the punk in the gutter
I'm the new president, and I grew, and I bent
Don't you know? Don't it show?- I'm the punk with the stutter

I [D]have[Dsus2] to be carefu[D]l not [Dsus2]to preach[G5/C]
I can't pretend that I can teach[G5/B]
And yet I've lived your future out, [A7sus4] by pound[A7]ing stages[A7sus4] like [A7]a clown
An[D]d on t[Dsus2]he dance fl[D]oor, broke[Dsus2]n glass[G5/C]
The bloody faces slowly pass[G5/B]
The broken seats in empty rows-[A7sus4] It all b[A7]elongs[A7sus4] to me, y[A7]ou know[A7sus4] [A7]
Ok[A7]ay!

Verse 3: (same as V1)
You declared you would be three inches taller- you only became what we made you

You fell and cried as our people were starving- now you know that we blame you
You tried to walk on the trail we were carving- now you know that we framed you
Chorus 3: (same as C1)
I'm the guy in the sky, flying high, flashing eyes
No surprise, I told lies- I'm the punk in the gutter
I'm the new president, and I grew, and I bent
Don't you know? Don't it show?- I'm the punk with the stutter
