E
Stuck in speed bump city  Where the only thing that’s pretty
      G        A        E  
Is the thought of getting out
E
There’s a tower block overhead  All you’ve got’s your benefits
          G      A       E  
And you’re barely scraping by


A
In this trouble town
             E 
Troubles are found
A
In this trouble town
             E
Words do get ’round


E
Kick the bottom make troubles flee  Smoke until our eyes would bleed
G         A     E
Sparkle pop the seed
E
Hear the sirens down the street  The kids get light on their feet
      G       A      E
Or they’ll be in the back seat


A
In this trouble town
             E
Troubles are found


Bm
Sitting on the pavement
A
Boy you’ve missed your payment
A                           E
And they’re gonna find you soon


Bm
If there’s a beating in the rain
A
If there’s a little bit of pain, man
A                         E
You’re the one it happens to


E
If I talk of getting out  I only hear the laughter loud
    G      A     E
It’s got an ugly echo
E
Somewhere there’s a secret road  To take me far away I know
         G      A     E
But ’til then I am hollow


A
In this trouble town
             E 
Troubles are found
A
In this trouble town
             E
Words do get ’round


Bm
Sitting on the pavement
A
Boy you’ve missed your payment
A                           E
And they’re gonna find you soon


Bm
If there’s a beating in the streets
A
If there’s a feeling of defeat
A                         E
You’re the one it happens to


E
Stuck in speed bump city  Where the only thing that’s pretty
      G         A         E
Is the thought of getting out
