INTRO

[E] Your neck is [C#m7] cheap elastic
[Am7] Beneath a [B] brain of lead
[E] Thanks for the [C#m7] lies and poison
[Am7] “Nothing is [B] true,” you say

The [A6] road to [C#m7] honest [D6] happi [C#m7] ness
[D] Ploughs right [C#m7] through
Yellow [F#m7] scum [B] like [Ab] you

[C#] I’m your [C#7] enemy [Bbm7] now [A6]

VERSE 2

[E] Saying you [C#m7] stand for something
[Am7] Making a [B] lame attempt
[E] Be lucky [C#m7] and be always
[Am7] Assured of [B] my contempt

And [A6] blue-ringed [C#m7] eyes, torn [D6] clothes, clenched [C#m7] fist
[F#m7] Skull [B] just [Ab] splits
