Intro -x2-: Ebm B Gb Db Bbm B Gb Db

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

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

Gb B Db                 Ebm   Bbm    B     Db
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
Gb B Db                 Ebm   Bbm    B     Db
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.

Interlude: Ebm B Gb Db Bbm B Gb Db

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

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

Gb B Db                 Ebm   Bbm    B     Db
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.

I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
 

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

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.
