Db
I'm the son of rage and love
Bbm
The Jesus of suburbia				
Gb
From the Bible of none of the above
Ab
On a steady diet of 

Db
Soda pop and Ritalin
Bbm
No one ever died for my 
Gb
Sins in hell, as far as I can tell				
Ab
At least the ones I've gotten away with

Gb                              Ab
And there's nothing wrong with me
Gb                           Ab
This is how I'm supposed to be	
Gb                 Ab		
In a land of make believe

That don't believe in me

| Db - Ab | Gb | - x2 -

Db
Get my television fix
Bbm 
Sitting on my crucifix
Gb				
The living room or my private womb
Ab
While the moms and brads are away

Db
To fall in love and fall in debt
Bbm
To alcohol and cigarettes 			
Gb
And Mary Jane to keep me insane
Ab
And doing someone else's cocaine

Gb                              Ab
And there's nothing wrong with me
Gb                           Ab
This is how I'm supposed to be	
Gb                 Ab		
In a land of make believe

That don't believe in me

Db
At the center of the earth
Db/C
In the parking lot				
Bbm               Ab
Of the 7-11 were I was taught
Gb                    Ab
The motto was just a lie

Db
It says home is were your heart is
Db/C
But what a shame
Bbm				Ab
Cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same
Gb                    Ab
We're beating out of time

Bbm      Ab
City of the dead
Db             Gb
At the end of another lost highway
Bbm      Ab          Gb
Sign misleading to nowhere			
Bbm      Ab
City of the damned
Db                  Gb
Lost children with dirty faces today
Bbm     Ab               Gb
No one really seems to care

Db
I read the graffiti
Db/C
In the bathroom stall				
Bbm                            Ab
Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall
Gb                   Ab
And so it seemed to confess

Db
It didn't say much
Db/C
But it only confirmed that			
Bbm                             Ab
The center of the earth is the end of the world
Gb                       Ab
And I could really care less

Bbm      Ab
City of the dead
Db             Gb
At the end of another lost highway
Bbm      Ab          Gb
Sign misleading to nowhere			
Bbm      Ab
City of the damned
Db                  Gb
Lost children with dirty faces today
Bbm     Ab               Gb
No one really seems to care

Db                         A - Ab  
Hearts recycled but never saved

From the cradle to the grave	
Db                          A - Ab
We are the kids of war and peace
Db                          A - Ab
From Anaheim to the Middle East
Db                           A - Ab
We are the stories and disciples
Db                    A - Ab
Of the Jesus of suburbia

Are we demented or are we disturbed?
Db                           Ab          Eb
The space that's in between insane and insecure

Ab                          Cm
Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?
Db                   Ab          Eb
Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed
Ab                      Cm
Nobody's perfect and I stand accused
Db                              Ab              Eb
For lack of a better word, and that's my beat excuse
