Part I: Jesus Of Suburbia (4/4)
-------------------------------
VERSE 1
-------
C#                                A#
    I'm the son of rage and love       The Jesus of Suburbia
    F#                               G#
The bible of none of the above, on a steady diet of
C#                                A#
    Soda pop and Ritalin               No one ever died for my
F#                                               G#
Sins in Hell, as far as I can tell, at least the ones I got away with

CHORUS
------
            F#                  G#           F#                  G#
And there's nothing wrong with me,   this is how I'm supposed to be
     F#              G#                             C#  G#  F#  C#  G#  F#
In a land of make believe that don't believe in me

VERSE 2
-------
C#                           A#
    Get my television fix,        sitting on my crucifix
  F#                                        G#
A living room on my private womb, while the moms and brads are away
C#                                     A#
    To fall in love and fall in debt       to alcohol and cigarettes
    F#                                 G#
And mary jane to keep me insane, doing someone else's cocaine

REPEAT CHORUS

C#  G#  F#  C#  G#  F#
C#  A#  F#  G#
C#  F   A#  G#  F#  G#

Part II: City Of The ***ed (4/4)
---------------------------------
VERSE 1 (some chords are arranged for guitar from piano)
-------
       C#                         C                  A#        G#
At the center of the Earth in the parking lot of the 7-11 were I was taught
F#                      G#
    The motto was just a lie
        C#                               C                    A#                       G#
It says home is where your heart is, but what a shame, 'cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same
F#                      G#
    It's beating out of time

CHORUS
------
A#         G#         C#                 F#
    City of the Dead,      at the end of another lost highway
A#           G#              F#
    Signs misleading to nowhere
A#         G#         C#                      F#
    City of the ***ed,    lost children with dirty faces today
A#         G#              F#
    No one really seems to care

VERSE 2 (same as first)
-----------------------
  C#                       C                       A#                   G#
I read the graffiti in the bathroom stall like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall
F#                         G#
    And so it seemed to confess
C#                              C                  A#                         G#
It didn't say much, but it only confirmed that the center of the earth is the end of the world
F#                         G#
    And I could really care less

REPEAT CHORUS

From the cradle to the grave
                           A  G#
We are the kids of war and peace
                           A  G#
From Anaheim to the Middle East
                                 A  G#
We are the stories and disciples of
                    A  G#
The Jesus of Suburbia

I can't remember a word that you were saying
G#                       C
   Are we demented or am I disturbed?
    C#                                 G#        D#
The space that's in between insane and insecure

G#  C  C#  G#  D#

G#                            C
   Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?

This hurricane of ***ing lies

   G#      F#    C# G#  F# C#   G#        F#    C# G#  F#
I  lost my faith to this,  this town that don't ex-ist

And I               walked this line
  C#   G# C#  G#  C# G#   D# G#2 D# G#2 D# G#2
A million and one ***ing times
