Dm        C     G       G
Don't do love, don't do friends
Dm     C      G      F
I'm only after success
Dm         C    G     G
Don't need a relationship
Dm       C     G     F
I'll never soften my grip


Dm                C
Don't want cash, don't want car
G             F
Want it fast, want it hard
Dm                C
Don't need money, don't need fame
G            G
I just want to make a change


Dm           C
I just wanna change
       G     
I just wanna change
Gm           Dm
I just wanna change

F         C            E7              Am
 I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
F         C            E7                 Am
 I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
F          C              E7              A    -G-
 I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy

Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no


Dm        C     G         G
One track mind, one track heart
Dm   C          G     F
If I fail, I'll fall apart
Dm    C     G     G
Maybe it is all a test
        Dm                C      
Cause I feel like I'm the worst
            G                F
So I always act like I'm the best


Dm             C
If you are not very careful
G                F
Your possessions will possess you
Dm            C
TV taught me how to feel
G                 G
Now real life has no appeal


Dm          C
It has no appeal
       G
It has no appeal
Gm          Dm
It has no appeal
       C
It has no appeal
G         G   G
It has no a--ppeal

  1. squarerooto

    A good strumming pattern I found was dDu (the second d is capitalized because its emphasized)

  2. i find it sounds better if you replace most E7 with a G cord instead
    e7 can also be replaced with other cords during multiples like during Oh Oh no Oh no oh no oh
    i play
    f c g am g because it sounds nice

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
