[ Tab from: ]

Verse III(same as before)

 D                      Bm       G
"blow my money on my favorite company
they can blow holes in my ozone
so pour that propane on my clothes
        Bm                G
I like it when my skin glows
besides there's nothing to live for"
            D              Bm     G                A
unless you live a little more like you're going to die
Interlude II/Bridge (upbeat)

D, A x 1

so what the fuck are you going to do?
they robbed your life from you
                              A (pause)
tell them you want to get it back
if you do, I've got your back
yes it's something worth defending
so throw caution to the wind
and other platitudes
that were written just for you
take a shit in their swimming pool
let them chase you if you do
finally something is happening to you
put an axe through the TV
blow up your radio,
though you can't see them now
you'll hear birds singing in your soul
sneak your way past the gates in a hard heart shape
if you're gonna be a shark you better learn to stay awake

Walk Up: D/F#, G, G#,A, A#, Bm

D           Bm         A        G
Ba, Ba, Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba,Ba.....X3

D          Bm          A         G
Why you wanna spend your life in jail?

End on D

....I think that's about it! This is my favorite song off Arm's Way. Has a great build up! Enjoy!
