G
   Went downtown just to be a martyr
   but a telephone pole beat me to it
   it was covered in barbed wire
               C
   Saw a little boy's white teeth
                                                                            G
   like wild horses encaged by an iron string
               D                                                                G
   Oh god...does not feel good unless he bleeds
   G
   And daily crucifictions are hung up on street signs
   they use all sorts of names
   hope they never use mine
              C
   these consonants and vowels
   that cannot scream nor howl
                                    G
   only just hang around
               D                                                             G
   Oh god...how'd things get so turned around
   G
   and in the office building
   9 to 5 goes on trial
   the man is startin to crack
   but the ceiling stones smile
                  C
   and the boss comes in
   to see what fragile things                G
   his dull and pointless tongue can tear
             D                                                                                        G
   Oh god...he combed over a baldspot with a bit of hair
   G
   Cause everybody needs
   somebody else to blame
   they can't curse themselves
   they take their doctor's name in vain
                              C
   they'd rather jump through hoops
   and theraputic groups
                                                   G
   than in their own minds delve
            D                                                          G   
   oh god...why don't we believe in ourselves
   
  D
   Sometimes
   C
   I think
   G
   Life is just a movie
   D
   and these
   C
   strangers
   G
   are folks we really know
   D
   sit back
   C
   relax
   G
   enjoy some popcorn
   C                        D                      G           
   Life's a great big mystery show

G   
   Saw tiny faces that are tattered and torn
   but there's paint upon the mansion that is hardly worn
        C
   I'd like to go inside
   but why I don't know
   as though I could peel the paint
                                      G
   and feed it to the poor
               D                                       G
   oh god...can't live like this anymore

 G   
   my neighbor is as tolerant as a feeding shark
   but they tell me that her bite is much better than her bark
                      C
   she goes ramblin on
   from dusk until dawn
                                                                   G
   sayin I should try bein' like her sometime
            D                                                                       G
   oh god...think somethin's died inside her mind

   
   cause
   sometimes...
   
  C                          D                     G
   Life's a great big mystery show
