      Fm                 Bbm
I saw fireworks from the freeway
      Eb                         Ab
And behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
               Fm                      Bbm
Cause you were born on the fourth of july, freedom ring

Well something on the surface it stinks
       Fm                                Bbm
I said something on the surface, well it kind of makes me nervous
    Eb                                   Ab
Who says that you deserve this and what kind of god would serve this?

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

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