         Nevermind.Its easy enough to play,its just the same    
         power chords picked and then strummed with distortion.enjoy!

         I’m so ugly, but thats okay ‘cause so are you, we’ve broken our mirrors

         Light my candles, in a daze ‘cause I found God, yeah,yeah...

          I’m so lonely, ‘cause today I shaved my head, and I’m not sad,
