Intro -x2-: Abm E B Gb Ebm E B Gb

      Abm                 Dbm
I saw fireworks from the freeway
      Gb                         B
And behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
               Abm                      Dbm
Cause you were born on the fourth of july, freedom ring 
     Gb                           B
Well something on the surface it stinks
       Abm                                Dbm
I said something on the surface, well it kind of makes me nervous
    Gb                                   B
Who says that you deserve this and what kind of god would serve this?
        Abm              Dbm
We will cure this dirty old disease
        Gb
Well if you've got the poison I've got the remedy
 

    Abm            Dbm
The remedy is the experience
          Gb           B
This is a dangerous liaison
          Abm                 Dbm
I say the comedy is that its serious
          Gb                  B
This is a strange enough new play on words
          Abm                       Dbm
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
    Gb                             B
The rest of your nights with the light on
             Abm                   Dbm
So shine the light on all of your friends
        Gb
Well it all amounts to nothing in the end.
 

B E Gb                 Abm   Ebm    E     Gb
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
B E Gb                 Abm   Ebm    E     Gb
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.

Interlude: Abm E B Gb Ebm E B Gb

        Abm                     Dbm
I heard two men talking on the radio
     Gb                        B
In a cross fire kind of new reality show
  Abm                            Dbm
Uncovering the ways to plan the next big attack 
          Gb                                  B
They were counting down the days to stab the brother in the
         Abm                      Dbm
Be right back after this, the unavoidable kiss, 
          Gb                           B
Where the minty fresh death breath is sure to outlast
        Abm        Dbm
This catastrophy, dance with me
           Gb
Because if you've got the poison, I've got the remedy 

 
    Abm            Dbm
The remedy is the experience
          Gb           B
This is a dangerous liaison
          Abm                 Dbm
I say the comedy is that its serious
          Gb                  B
This is a strange enough new play on words
          Abm                       Dbm
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
    Gb                             B
The rest of your nights with the light on
             Abm                   Dbm
So shine the light on all of your friends
        Gb

Abm              E              B
 When I fall in love I take my time
                    Gb
 There's no need to hurry when I'm making up my mind
Abm                    E                       B                       Gb
 You can turn off the sun but I'm still gonna shine and I'll tell you why
