Hey, I think this is getting to me?
First class living in a goldfish bowl.
Just when I think I have driven my life where I wanted it to be,
it takes me to a place that I don?t not want to go.

No, I just don?t care. (I hear them under their breath.)
No, I just don?t care. (What they say? when they think that I can?t hear them.)
I see them point and I see them stare.
There goes that stupid guy with the short blonde hair.
(Second verse is the same as the first, except with increased drum and
bass presence and maybe the second guitar strumming at bit heavier)
Yeah, I think this is getting to me?
First class living in a goldfish bowl.
Just when I think I have driven my life where I wanted it to be,
it takes me to a place that I don?t want to go.
(Pre chorus is also the same, again with extra drum and bass)
All I ever wanted to do was to learn how to break this world in two.
Teach it all the tricks I wanted it to learn,
teach it how to do what I want it to do.
No one really understands just how simple and plain and predictable I am.
Because all I ever wanted real bad was to play guitar in a rock and roll band.
Now I?m just losing my hair and learning how to smile.

VERSION 2 - Tabbed by Brett Paragow
^ - Upstroke
Chords Used:
Dm - X57765
Bb - 688766
[G] [-] [344533]  
[F] [-] [133211]  
To start, hit a Dm chord and hold it out for one measure.
Art then counts 1, 2, 3, 4, followed by drum smack, and then this riff, the
song's main riff throughout:
^ ^
 
 e|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--5--5--5--6-6-3-|
 B|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--6--6--6--6-6-3-|
 G|-7--7--7--7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--7-7-4-|
 D|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--7--7--7--8-8-5-|
 A|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--5--5--5--8-8-5-|
 E|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--x--x--x--6-6-3-|

This is the prechorus riff, in between the main riff, and the chorus riff
below it:
^ ^ ^
 
 e|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6--3--3--3--xx-1-1-1-|
 B|-7--7--7--7-7-7-7--3--3--3--xx-1-1-1-|
 G|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8--4--4--4--xx-2-2-2-|
 D|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8--5--5--5--xx-3-3-3-|
 A|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6--5--5--5--xx-3-3-3-|
 E|-x--x--x--x-x-x-x--3--3--3--xx-1-1-1-|

This is the other main riff; it's played during the chorus, after the
prechorus:
^ ^
 
 e|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--5--5--5--1--1--1-|
 B|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--6--6--6--1--1--1-|
 G|-7--7--7--7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--2--2--2-|
 D|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--7--7--7--3--3--3-|
 A|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--5--5--5--3--3--3-|
 E|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--x--x--x--1--1--1-|

Hope that helps the lot of ya; perhaps somebody can come in here afterwards
and help me out a little bit with some of the rhythm and with some of the
fills that I haven't really transcribed. Regardless, enjoy it...
Email me at Bretparago@aol.com with any questions.
