Some people might say my life is in a rut. I'm quite

Bm                   D
hap-py with what I got.

People might say that I should strive for more, but I'm so

happy I can't see the point.

I want no-thing this so-ci-e-ty's got_

Verse 2
Some people might get some pleasure out of hate,
Me I've e-nough alrea-dy on my plate.
People might need some tension to relax, me I'm to
Busy dod-ging between the
Flak. What you see_ is what you get, you've
Made your bed you betterlie in it you
Choose your leaders and place your trust
As their lies wash you down and their prom-
ises rust, you'll see
Kid-ney machines re-placed by rockets and guns and the
Public wants what the public gets but
I don't get what this so-ci-e-ty wants

G#                      F#6

Only knowing the chords doesn't really help play this.
You have to listen to get the right 'chu_gg - chu_gg - ching - eh - eh - eh'
rhythm at the start.

Hope the layout makes sense, it was a real pain to try and 
set it out correctly. The first two lines in the verses run
together a bit.

More Jam will be posted if I have time.
