Intro -x2-: Bbm Gb Db Ab Fm Gb Db Ab

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

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

Db Gb Ab                 Bbm   Fm    Gb     Ab
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
Db Gb Ab                 Bbm   Fm    Gb     Ab
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.

Interlude: Bbm Gb Db Ab Fm Gb Db Ab

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

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

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