             C#5
All day long 
             A5 
I felt like
     C#5                    A5           G#5
Smashing my head through a clear glass window
            C#5    
But instead
           A5
I went out
        C#5                    A5         G#5
And smashed up a phone booth around the corner

C#

C#                          F#
I never had the chance to choose my own parents
C#                        G#
I never knew why I should be stuck with mine
C#                    Bb
Mommy's always trying not to eat
G#                                      C#
And Daddy's always smelling like he's pickled in booze

C#

C#                          F
I never had the chance to choose my own name
F#                        D#
I never knew why I should be stuck with mine
C#                            Bb
Mommy's always talking about family pride
G#                             C#
And Daddy's always hiding from his weekend bride

             C#5
All day long 
             A5 
I felt like
     C#5                    A5           G#5
Smashing my head through a clear glass window
            C#5    
But instead
           A5
I went out
        C#5                    A5         G#5
And smashed up a station wagon around the corner

C#

C#                      F#
I looked in the mirror and told myself
C#                           G#
"At least I don't look like them, at least"
C#                             Bb
Mommy's like a filmstar in a distorted mirror
G#                                C#
Daddy's like a guy who lost his stomach in the war

C#                                F
I went to shake hands with the President in Miami
F#                            D#
I went to a rock show to see Mick Jagger
C#             G#              Bbm           F#
You'll never believe it, the surprise of my life
D#                                          C#
They had paint on their faces just like my Mommy

C#                                    G#
Am I going crazy, or is it just you, Daddy?
Bbm                                   F#
Am I going nuts, or is it just you, Mommy?
C#          G#             Bbm      F#
Am I plain gone, or is it just the world?
D#                          F#        C#
Daddy, I'd rather have you dead than crazy

Bbm                             F#
Trying to talk to them is like eating chicken dinner when you're 
 G#
angry
Bbm                                 F#
Trying to get their love is like watching ice cream melt when 
        G#
you're hungry
Bbm                            G#
They gave me a watch that's guaranteed not to break
        F#        Bbm        G#       C#
But my Mommy and Daddy broke up last fall

C#                                    G#
Am I going crazy, or is it just you, Daddy?
Bbm                                   F#
Am I going nuts, or is it just you, Mommy?
C#         G#              Bbm      F#
Am I plain gone, or is it just the world?
D#                          F#        C#
Mommy, I'd rather have you dead than crazy

(main riff)
             C#5
All day long 
             A5 
I felt like
     C#5                    A5           G#5
Smashing my head through a clear glass window
            C#5    
But instead
           A5
I went out
        C#5               A5         G#5
And smashed up a church around the corner
