Lyrics + Progression


(riff)					Bb5, Am, (one down stroke on each chord)
I shut the windows and close the store,

(riff)                              			    B5, Am 
I lay down on the bathroom floor, Everyone I know is a bore

(riff)					     Bb5, Am
I'm starting to think that everything stinks

(riff)
That I could really use a drink

(riff)					  B5, Am
Then I got up and hit my head on the sink

B5/C/D  B5/C/D  B5/C/D  B5/C/D    Am     Cadd9
Father father father father,      Do you call

B5/C/D  B5/C/D  B5/C/D       B5/C/D   Am  Cadd9  (picked) Bsus2/A7sus4
Father father father,        Should I end it          all

     D*                     G11sus5
Now, here comes the song I love so much

D*			    G11sus5
Makes me wanna go fuck shit up

     D*             G11sus4     D*                   G11sus5, Cadd9
Now, I got nirvana in my head, I'm so glad I'm not dead

(riff)                        Bb5, Am
I slam my hand in the car door

(riff) 
I scream till I could scream no more

(riff)                                Bb5, Am
Bloody and mean and rotten to the core

B5/C/D  B5/C/D  B5/C/D  B5/C/D  Bb5,    Am
Father father father father,    Do you call

B5/C/D  B5/C/D  B5/C/D  B5/C/D   Am  Cadd9 Bsus2,A7sus4
Satan Satan Satan,      Should I end it    all

D*    Bb5        C
 You try to get off the ground

D*                            Cadd9
But you always end up coming down

D*              Bb5              C
When the sound comes around and goes in your ears

   B5  /C  /D           G5/A5   C
You can do anything you have no fears

D*               Bb5              C  
When that sound comes around and goes in my ears

   B5   /C   /D     G5/A5   C
I can do anything I have no fears

D*                           G11sus5
Now, here comes the song I love so much

D*			    G11sus5
Makes me wanna go fuck shit up

D*             G11sus4
I got nirvana in my head

D                   G11sus5, Bsus2,A7sus4(x4)
I'm so glad I'm not dead

D                       G11sus5
Here comes the song, I love it so much


D			    G11sus5
Makes me wanna go fuck shit up

     D             G11sus4
Now, I got nirvana in my head

D                   G11sus5, Bsus2,A7sus4
I'm so glad I'm not dead

Outro (strum lightly)
(riff)  Bb5, Am, A, G, D
