Intro -x2-: Bm G D A Gbm G D A

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

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

D G A                 Bm   Gbm    G     A
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
D G A                 Bm   Gbm    G     A
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.

Interlude: Bm G D A Gbm G D A

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

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

D G A                 Bm   Gbm    G     A
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
D G A                 Bm   Gbm    G     A
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
 

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


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