besides there's nothing to live for"

Interlude II/Bridge (upbeat)

D, A x 1

D
so what the f**k are you going to do?
they robbed your life from you
                              A (pause)
tell them you want to get it back
     A
if you do, I've got your back
D
yes it's something worth defending
so throw caution to the wind
                 A(pause)
and other platitudes
      A
that were written just for you
D
take a sh*t in their swimming pool
let them chase you if you do
A
finally something is happening to you
D
put an axe through the TV
blow up your radio,
A
though you can't see them now
you'll hear birds singing in your soul
D
sneak your way past the gates in a hard heart shape
A
if you're gonna be a shark you better learn to stay awake
