Track Name: Fatal Exception
i opened up my computer to see [D Bm]
just what the new day brought unto me [G Bm A]
perplexing mazes of bizarre phrases [D Bm]
what in the world could all this shit mean? [G Bm A D]

when it says:
clipping was lost on the round trip to tiny [D Bm]
catastrophic failure in boot sector on drive C [G Bm A]
fatal exception in sys.exe [D Bm]
let's all just go dancing in the street [G Bm A D]

[D G A / D Bm A / D G A]

it's such a disgrace that in this day and age [F# Bm]
i don't know what to say [G]
just shake my fists with rage [D]
at this cheap display [Em]
cuz it's choking till I'm blue in its blue interface [A]
it's a slap in the face to the whole human race [A7]

and with endless streams of software glitches [D Bm]
the remote host now takes local hostage [G Bm A]
with BDSM in this BSOD [D Bm]
the slave's drive to be master is dominating me [G Bm A D]

it keeps saying:
clipping was lost on round trip to tiny [D Bm]
catastrophic failure in boot sector on drive C [G Bm A]
fatal exception in sys.exe [D Bm]
let's all just go dancing in the street [G Bm A D]
let's all just go dancing in the street [G Bm A D]
let's all just go dancing in the street [G Bm A D]

[D G A / D Bm A / D G A / D Bm A
D F# Bm G A]
Track Name: Asleep in the Sun
[D Bm A / D Bm A
D Bm A / D Dsus4 D]

i work hard to shirk all of my duties [Dsus2 Em9 G (G/F# G/E) A (A/B A/C#)]
i never roll up my sleeves every time i have the chance [Dsus2 Em9 Asus4 A/C#]
i make it a point to avoid getting my hands dirty [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]
i don't pull myself up by my bootstraps when I can [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]

cuz you could say that
I'm like a semi-sapient slug [G A7 (A7sus4)]
lying on top of a log [Em6 A7 A7sus4 A7]

there was a time in my life when i used to have the hunger [Dsus2 Em9 G (G/F# G/E) A (A/B A/C#)]
and the mindset of someone less encumbered [Dsus2 Em9 A A/C#]
and the world was mine to rape and pillage and plunder [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]
i had a reason to rouse up from my slumber [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]

but nowadays
i look at my cat [G A7 (A7sus4)]
and i wish i could be just like that [Em6 A7 Asus4 A7 Asus4 A7 Asus4 A7]

how you made connections that no one else could make [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]
and unleashed chaos that no one else could create [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]

and nowadays
I look at my cat [G A7 (A7sus4)]
and I wish I could be just like that [Em6 A7]

asleep in the sun [D]
asleep in the sun, I wish I was [Bm A]
Track Name: Somebody New
[C G D G / C D7 G]

smashing dishes, slamming doors [G D G]
it's so hard to feel rapport [C D7 G]
scraping shrapnel off the floor [C G]
through the fog of civil war [D G]
you start to wonder if you can take it anymore [C D7 G]

and then the hail of bullets fly
You can hear the stifled battle cries
echo past the floors beneath
to the quiet of the street
it's just some girl yelling at some guy

But I don't know if I'd make it through
if I had to say goodbye to you
I guess would have to say
that if you had to go away, well
i'd just find somebody new

i'd just find somebody new
if I had to say goodbye to you
I think I would have to say
that if you had to go away, well
i'd just find somebody new
Track Name: Awards Show
the awards show is a place we all know [Eb Bb Eb]
it's a place we deride where we want to go [Bb Eb Cm F G]
It's the awards show and the standards are low [Eb Bb Eb]
It's meaningless so, why don't we go? [Bb Eb Cm F G]

cuz the entries are in, maybe we'll win [Eb Bb Eb]
maybe we won't, but then again [Eb Bb Cm F G]
it's an awards show and the standards are low [Eb Bb Eb]
it's meaningless so, why don't we go [Bb Eb Cm F G]

[Eb Bb G# Bb / Eb Bb G# Bb /
Eb Fm G# Bb / Eb Fm G# Bb]

we're no-go on the pro[ject] lo[dge] tonight [Eb Bb Eb]
they shut the doors, and we wondered why [Bb Eb Cm Bb]
cuz we know for sure there's no more all ages shows [Eb Bb Eb]
no o'cayz corral for the young guns to go [Bb Eb Cm Bb]

'cept to the awards show, where we're all guitar heroes [Eb Bb Eb]
we'll be sid and nancy, you be axl rose [Bb Eb Cm Bb]
cuz the entries are in, maybe we'll win [Eb Bb Eb]
maybe we won't, but then again [Bb Eb Cm Bb]

maybe we'll we remembered for eternity [G# Bb Eb]
Track Name: Pink
every evening, at 6:30 in the pm [G#m Emaj7 F# B Cdim C#m]
i turn pink and i start to glow (he starts to glow) [A F#]

[F# Gm G#m]

everybody's always asking [G#m Emaj7 F# B Cdim C#m]
isn't it tough to be an angel? [A F#]
yes it is. [F# Gm G#m]

[G#m F# Gm]
[E B F#/ E A F#]

Track Name: She's Got a Knack
i'm pounding my head on a wall and i can see that the plaster is starting to [C F6]
fall, off and I keep [Am Am/G]
thinking of all the ways that she hurts my brain, every single [C F6]
day, she drives me crazy [Am Am/G]

she comes from out of the blue and cries is there [C]
anything I can do?' and while [E7 Am]
strutting out of the room, she sighs, 'you're so [F6 C]
good at being you' [G]

cuz she's a gal who has a knack for wrapping brutal [C F6]
attacks in beautiful packages [Am G]
she makes it her tack to mash a mass of withering jabs into every [C F6]
wisecrack that she can [Am G]

i'm staring out into space [C]
cuz my mind's been blown {F6]
now i'm bound to lose face [Am]
in an arms race [Am/G]

that has no beginning or end [C]
cuz the button's been pressed [F6]
she's got you undressed [Am]
can we end this? [Am/G]

she smiles while shaking her head [C]
and sends her deepest regrets [E7 Am]

(she's got no gun against your head
she's already left you there for dead)

cuz she's a gal who has a knack for wrapping brutal [C F6]
attacks in beautiful packages [Am G]
she makes it her tack to mash a mass of withering jabs into every [C F6]
wisecrack that she can [Am G]

as a matter of fact, she lacks the tact to not [C F6]
stab you in the back when you walk past [Am G]
she says something nasty and bad every chance that she has [C F6]
and dances away shrieking with laughter [Am G]
Track Name: Sanrio Girl
that purse is more pink than it's useful [C Am]
it holds a bowl of ramen noodles [C Am]
and your notebook full of doodles [C E7]
of the kitty that's all over your walls F G

your hair and lips are red like roses [C Am]
but you and your friends don't have noses [C Am]
still you're a model striking poses [C E7]
standing over ten feet tall [F G]

discipline leads to mastery [C Am]
in the ancient art of SATs [C Am]
and afterschool activities [C E7]
yet failure is your biggest fear cuz you don't [F G]

speak no words, and don't ask no questions [C Am]
a 10th dan in suzuki method [C Am]
the bow you hold is your deadly weapon [C E7]
it slays all those who come near [F G]

sanrio girl [F G]
we can travel the world [Em F]
i'll go where you go [C Dm]
from new york to tokyo [F G]

sanrio girl [F G]
i'll give you diamonds and pearls [Em F]
we'll walk the sandy coasts of [C Dm]
sanrio de janeiro [F G]

and my heart melted just like that nuclear reactor [E7 Am]
that collapsed in that tragic Japanese disaster [C G G7]
Track Name: Re-Entry
[D6add9 C#min7 E Bm / D6add9 C#min7 E Bm B]

[E5 Eb#5(no 3rd) A5 A6 B5 B6]

i saw the glens and rivers quaking
boxcar moving, big shake shaking
cassandra calls the false flag flying
i call to you and can't you hear me
crying,
hey,
i see l.a.
torn out at the seams
you see, i wouldn't have done it but i had so many dreams

[F#5 G#5 A5 E5 B Bsus4 B Bsus2]

i found out that the world was ending,
rivers burning, palm trees bending
warnings by the grace of god but
everyone just smiles and nods
and turns away and wanders off
i found out that the world was ending,
rivers burning, palm trees bending
everyone just smiles and nods and turns away and wanders off

[E5 Eb#5(no 3rd) A5 A6 B5 B6 (x3) E5 Abmin A5 A6 B5 B6]

a sunny wednesday, '89,
my smile's on, and suit and tie,
i'm hot like laika high in orbit,
camera's on and words are forming
i'm thinking
of floating
in earth's light
weightless and redeemed
come in close and tell me all about your dreams

[F#5 G#5 A5 E5 B Bsus4 B Bsus2]

meteor that had me in it
falling towards this turning planet,
looked into the eye of god, now
everyone just smiles and nods and turns away and wanders off

[E Emaj7 Aadd9 B]

man of power, man of action
the sky is falling, go and catch it
c-beams glitter in the dark
a falling star, a dying spark
re-entry is hard, or so it seems
were you scared and can i tell you all about my dreams,
can i tell you all about my dreams?
Track Name: Oh Please
sometimes I say things I mean but I just [C]
shouldn't say [G C]
but don't take it so serious we're all gonna [C]
die anyway [Am G C]

you've got no scruples you find every [C]
loophole you can [G C]
but there's a time to count chips and there's a time to draw [C]
lines in the sand [Am G C]

[F G
C Am F]

i'm a sweet tactless bastard antagonist asshole [C]
you claim [G C]
but I've come to your rescue every time you've ever [C]
called out my name [Am G C]

Doo doo do odoooooo [C G C F-G Am G F G]
Track Name: Restless Slumber
restless slumber, indecision
multiplies with great precision
dreams of prison, a deep disquiet
a heavy heart, I can't deny it...

my eyes are closed but I hear it storming [A/G# A A/E]
the night has grown to a bitter morning
daylight breaking, birds forewarning
an eerie calm, but dark clouds forming

no work you do is satisfying [A/G# A A/E]
but joyless labor's gratifying
chopping wood until it's sawdust
the fuel that feeds you burns the hottest

[A A A A / A A/E A/G# A / A/E A/G# A A/E]

if you can be quiet, you can hear something
distant computers whirring, whizzing
for just one moment, the world is silent
no one's talking, but someone's listening

close your hands, you can't receive it [A/G# A A/E]
that's okay, cuz you don't need it
you eat your own shit, you create it
you eat the chicken and the egg that laid it

everything is everything [A/G# A A/E]
is everything is everything
is everything
everything is everything
Track Name: RTFM
[Bsus4 E6 Bsus4 E6 (x3)

C#m A E C#m A E]

looks like this plane is going down [E]
know that i've always loved you [A]
i'll see you when we touch the ground [E]
if the bombs don't detonate above you [A]

it was no incident [B]
it was an accident [C#m]
there was no jettison [B]
the plane broke up in flight [C#m A]

looks like we have a problem [E]
of strange fruit and grenadine [A]
of clusterfuck as pablum [E]
and a drunken horsemen stumbling [A]

it was no incident [B]
it was an accident [C#m]
there was no jettison [B]
the plane broke up in flight [C#m]

i guess one out of four ain't bad [Bm C#m D E5]
i assure it's mutual what we had [Bm C#m D E5]
i guess one out of four ain't bad [Bm C#m D E5]
one or five out of six in a row? that's mad [Bm C#m D E5]

another day, another arrow [E]
lying broken in the mud [A]
it never reached its target [E]
i'll have to wait for the flood [A]
