Our Lives Would Make A Sad Boring Movie
E B F#m A To the people making life from lust, abusing trust, and the fuckers who made fools out of the best of us: E B F#m You've swayed the public thought that they're all that they've bought, and otherwise they're ugly people that A will soon be dust. E B F#m And to the schools that brought us up and had us 'socialized', teaching us the world through hall passes and A E B F#m single file lines. We are discouraged to ask questions or to raise a fist. No wonder nobody can tell there's A something so much fucking bigger than this. E B F#m A E B And we say everyday that we won't grow up to live the lives that they do, and yet we only walk on footsteps F#m A E B F#m that they set for us instead of clearing paths towards promised lands we dreamt about, and better worlds we A read about. E B F#m A We leave our higher educations that we all 'must' get with a signature stamped paper and a mound of debt. E B F#m A The bank has got us by the throat and then we're forced to settle for the jobs we hate, 9 to 5, 40 hours, E B F#m A 40 years til the day we are too weak to work, too frail to play. No friends or lovers because they've all E B F#m A passed away. We've waited for this day all of our lives long, and on our death bed the stereo plays our favorite teenage anthem song. E B F#m A We sing along. E B F#m And to white, middle-class, suburban kids: start dealing with your privileges. Smash your TV, read a book, or A E B F#m see the world instead. Enjoy the simple things in life because you can, like your family, friends, community, A and local bands. E B F#m A If there's one thing in your life that you'll never forget, its that we're dead in the future but we're not E B F#m dead yet. Your life starts right now so start acting like it, or else you'll wake up one day feeling like a A silhouette.
