[verse]
A                        D
When I was just a little boy
                       A
I threw away all of my action toys
                  D            A       D
When I became obsessed with Operation

A                                 D
With hearts and minds and certain glands
                          A
You gotta learn to keep a steady hand
                  D           A   (A7)   D
And thus began my morbid fascination

E                                        F#m
Tore the spines from out of all of these self-help books
E                               F#m
Made myself a gun that not only shoots but looks
   D                       E
So real, it shoots through steel
                  A        D    A   (A7)  D
With rays of dark matter
             A        D    A  (A7)  D
rays of dark matter

A                              D
Do you wonder where the self resides
                         A
Is it in your head or between your sides
                            D
And who will be the one who will decide
           A       D
Its true location

A                                           D
And does the thought of bile that's red and black
                            A
The thought of tongues that taste you back
                D                     A       D
Fill you with a nauseouseous sort of elation

E                                          F#m
A noose is loosed around our necks made of DNA
          E                                            F#m
And every day it's growing tighter no matter what they do or say
            D                               
And you can shoot right through it with rays of dark matter
       E
Just before they kick out,
                  A        D
they kick out the ladder
                  A        D
With rays of dark matter
                  A   (A7) D    A    D
With rays of dark matter
               A                D    A    D   A   D    A   D
Like something catching fire

[whistle]

A                              D
Do you wonder where the self resides
                         A
Is it in your head or between your sides
                            D
And who will be the one who will decide
           A
Its true location
