G chordG
There's a voice on the phone
G chordG
Telling what had happened
Bm chordBm
Some kind of confusion
D7 chordD7
More like a disaster
G chordG
And it wondered how you
G chordG
Were left unaffected
Bm chordBm
But you had no knowledge
D7 chordD7
No the chemicals covered you
G chordG
And so a jury was formed
G chordG
As more liquor was poured
Bm chordBm
No need for conviction
D7 chordD7
They're not thirsting for justice
G chordG
But slept with the lies
G chordG
I keep inside my head
Bm chordBm
I found out I was guilty
D7 chordD7
I found out I was guilty
G chordG
But I won't be around
G chordG
For the sentencing
Bm chordBm
Because I'm leaving
D7 chordD7
Oh on the next airplane

C chordC D chordD G chordG Bm chordBm
And though I know that my actions are impossible to justify
C chordC D chordD G chordG
They seem adequate to fill up my time
C chordC D chordD Bm chordBm Em chordEm
And if I could talk to myself like I was someone else
C chordC D chordD G chordG Bm chordBm Em chordEm
Then maybe I could take your advice
C chordC D chordD G chordG
And I wouldn't act like such an asshole all the time

G chordG
There's a film on the wall
G chordG
Makes the people look small
Bm chordBm
Who are sitting beside it
D7 chordD7
All consumed in the drama
G chordG
They must return to their lives
G chordG
Once the hero has died
Bm chordBm
They will drive to the office
D7 chordD7
Stopping somewhere for coffee
G chordG
Where the folk singers poets
G chordG
and playwrights convene
Bm chordBm
Dispensing their wisdom
D7 chordD7
Oh dear amateur orator
G chordG
They will detail their pain
G chordG
In some standard refrain
Bm chordBm
They will recite their sadness
D7 chordD7
Like it's some kind of contest

F# chordF#
Well if it is
Bm chordBm
I think I am winning it
G chordG
All beaming with confidence
Asus2 chordAsus2
As I make my final lap
F# chordF#
The gold medal gleams
Bm chordBm
So hang it around my neck
G chordG
Because I am deserving it
Asus2 chordAsus2
The champion of idiots

C chordC D chordD G chordG Bm chordBm
But a kid carries his walkman on that long bus ride to Omaha
C chordC D chordD G chordG
I know a girl who cries when she practices violin
C chordC D chordD Bm chordBm Em chordEm
Because each note sounds so pure it just cuts into her
C chordC D chordD G chordG Bm chordBm Em chordEm
And then the melody comes pouring out her eyes
C chordC D chordD G chordG
Now to me everything else it just sounds like a lie
