[intro]

|A5 ////  |Dsus2/A ////  |Fmaj7/A //// G /|G  A5ii      |

|A5 ////  |Dsus2/A ////  |Fmaj7/A //// G /|G  A5ii  (C^)|

|A5                         |Dsus2/A             
   You declared you would be three inches taller 
   |Fmaj7/A G5/D        |G    A5  |
You only  became what we made you
|A5                        |Dsus2/A        
 Thought you were chasing a destiny calling
   |Fmaj7/A G5/D          |G    A5 |
You only    earned what we gave you

|D                          |G/D                   |
   You fell and cried as our people were starving 
|D7                  |G/D         |
 Now you know that we blame you
|A5                        |Dsus2/A               
   You tried to walk on the trail we were carving 
|Fmaj7/A G5/D        |G      A5   |
 Now you know that we framed you

[chorus]
|D                   |Dsus4                   |G/C   
   I'm the guy in the sky flying high flashing eyes
                  |G/B                     |E  E    |Esus4       |(E) 
No surprise I told lies I'm the punk in the gutter

[repeat intro]

We tried to speak between lines of oration
You could only repeat what we told you
Your axe belongs to a dying nation
They don't know that we own you
You're watching movies trying to find the feelers
You only see what we show you
We're the slaves of the phony leaders
Breathe the air we have blown you

[repeat chorus]
I'm the guy in the sky, flying high, flashing eyes
No surprise I told lies, I'm the punk in the gutter
I'm the new president and I grew and I bent
Don't you know? Don't it show? I'm the punk with the stutter

[repeat break]
My my my my G-g-g-g generation, My my my my G-g-g-g generation

|Dsus2         |Dsus2   D     |G/C               |G/C            |G/B
   I have to be careful not to preach, I can't pretend that I can teach
         |G/B              |Asus4          |A                   |
And yet I lived your future out by pounding stages like a clown
|Dsus2       |Dsus2       D     |G/C              |G/C         |G/B 
   And on the dance floor broken glass, and bloody faces slowly pass
            |G/B           |Asus4         |Asus4           |A    |A   |
The numbered seats in empty rows, it all belongs to me, you know

[repeat intro; first verse, chorus and break]
