REPEATED THROUGH WHOLE SONG BUT JUST PICKED DIFFERNTLY
Load up on guns and bring your friends.
It's fun to lose and to pretend.
She's over bored and self assured.
Oh no, I know a dirty word.
Hel—lo, hel—lo, hel—lo, how low?
Hel—lo, hel—lo, hel—lo, how low?
Hel—lo, hel—lo, hel—lo, how low?
Hel—lo, hel—lo, hel—lo. With the lights

Here we are now.
Entertain us.
I feel stupid.

Bridge
Yay
I'm worse at what I do best,
and for this gift I feel blessed.
Our little group has always been
and always will until the end.
Repeat pre—chorus, chorus, and bridge
w/ end of solo
And I forget just what I taste.
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile.
I found it hard, it was hard to find.
Oh well whatever, never mind.
Repeat pre—chorus, then
out it's less dangerous.
Here we are now.
Entertain us.
I feel stupid.
and contagious.
here we are now.
entertain us.
a mullato,
an albino,

Spring is here a — gain
Re — pro — duc — tive glands He's
the one who likes all that pretty songs
and he likes to sing along
and he likes to shoot his gun,
but he knows not what it means,

He's the one who likes all that pretty songs
and he likes to shoot his gun,
but he knows not what it means,
knows not what it means and I say,
(w/intro)
Aahh!
We can have some more.
Nature is a whore.
Bruises on the fruit.
Tender age in bloom.
Repeat chorus
He's the one who likes all that pretty songs
and he likes to sing along
and he likes to shoot his gun,
but he knows not what it means,

He's the one who likes all that pretty songs
and he likes to shoot his gun,
but he knows not what it means,
knows not what it means,
knows not what it means,
knows not what it means, and I say
Aahh! Oohh!

No, I don't have a gun

Lithium
This Tab was written by someone else can't remeber name This Whole Tab is his
There's no bass for the entire first verse.
Bass comes in at the first _chorus_:
G——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|

A———————4————————————————7—————————————————2—2—2—2—5—5—5—5—|

Then, the second (and third) verse:
G—————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D——————————————————————7——7—7—9—9—9—9—————————————————|
A——7——7—6——6—4——4—————————————————————2—2—2—2—5—5—5—5—|

The last time you play the above (last one before the chorus):
G——————————————————————————————————————————————————————|

A——7——7—6——6—4——4——————5—5———5—3—3———3—2—2—2—2—5—5—5—5—|

End of song only.
Oh, and one time, the very last repetition of the _other chorus_ part
during the second time its played, there is a variation that goes like
this:
G——————————————————————————————————————————————5—————————————|
D——————————————————————————5——7——7—7—5———5—7—7———7—5—————————| Then go into

Lyrics
I'm so happy 'cause today I've found my friends.
They're in my head.
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you.
We've broken our mirr'rs.
Sunday morning is ev'ry day for all I care.
And I'm not scared.
Light my candles in a daze 'cause I've found God.
I'm so lonely but that's okay I shaved my head.
And I'm not sad.
And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard.
But I'm not sure.
I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there.
But I don't care.
I'm so horny, but that's okay. My will is good.
Repeat chorus
I like it, I'm not gonna crack.
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack.
I love you, I'm not gonna crack.
I'd kill you, I'm not gonna crack.
I like it, I'm not gonna crack.
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack.
I love you, I'm not gonna crack.
I'd kill you, I'm not gonna crack.

Lyrics
Polly wants a cracker,
I think I should get off of her first.
I think she wants some water
to put out the blow torch
It isn't me.
We have some seed.
Let me clip your dirty wings.
Let me take a ride.
Don't hurt yourself.
I want some help
to please myself.
I've got some rope
you have been told.
I promise you
I have been true.
Let me take a ride.
Don't hurt yourself
I want some help
to please myself.
Polly wants a cracker,
maybe she would like more food.
She asks me to untie her.
A chase would be nice for a few.
It isn't me.
We have some seed.
Let me clip your dirty wings.
Let me take a ride.
Don't hurt yourself.
I want some help
to help myself.
I've got some rope
you have been told.
I promise you
I have been true.
Let me take a ride.
Don't hurt yourself
I want some help
to help myself.
Polly said
Polly says her back hurts,
she's just as bored as me,
she caught me off my guard,
it amazes me the will of instinct.
It isn't me.
We have some seed.
Let me clip your dirty wings.
Let me take a ride.
Don't hurt yourself.
I want some help
to help myself.
I've got some rope
you have been told.
I promise you
I have been true.
Let me take a ride.
Don't hurt yourself
I want some help
to help myself.

Lyrics
When I was an alien
cultures weren't opinions
Gotta find a way
to find a way
when I'm there
Gotta find a way
a better way
I had better wait... (etc.)
Never met a wise men,
if so it's a woman
Gotta find a way
to find a way
when I'm there
Gotta find a way
a better way
I had better wait... (etc.)
Just because you're paranoid,
doesn't mean they're
not after you.
Gotta find a way (etc.)

Lyrics
One baby to another says I'm lucky to meet you.
I don't care what you think unless it is about me.
It is now my duty to completely drain you.
A travel through a tube and end up in your infection.
Chew meat for you,
pass it back and forth.
In a passionate kiss,
from my mouth to yours
'cause I like you
With eyes so dilated I've become your pupil.
You've thaught me everything without a poison apple.
The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student.
Indebted and so greatful.Vacuum out the fluids.
Chew meat for you,
pass it back and forth.
In a passionate kiss,
from my mouth to yours
'cause I like you, you, you,
or
One baby to another says I'm lucky to meet you.
I don't care what you think unless it is about me.
It is now my duty to completely drain you.
A travel through a tube and end up in your infection.
Chew meat for you,
pass it back and forth.
In a passionate kiss,
from my mouth to yours
sloppy lips to lips,
you're my vitamins
'cause I like you

Thruth, covered in security,
I can't let you smoother me.
I'd like to but it wouldn't work,
trading off and taking turns.

you see who makes me feel
and I wanted more than I could steal.
I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield.
I'll go out my way to prove I

Don't tell me what I want to hear.

I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield.
I'll go out my way to make you a deal.
We've made a pact to learn from who —
ever we want without new rules.
We'll save what's lost and what we grew.
They'll go out their way to prove they

Monkey say, monkey do. I don't know why!
I'd rather be dead than cool. I don't know why!
Ev'ry line ends in rhyme. I don't know why!
Less is more, love is blind. I don't know why!
Stay, stay away... (etc)
Give an inch take a smile. I don't know why!
Fashion shifts, fashion style. I don't know why!
Throw it out and keep it in. I don't know why!
Have to have poison skin. I don't know why!

Stay, stay away... (etc)

I'll start this off
Without any words
I got so high that
I scratched 'til I bled
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
The finest day
That I ever had
Was when I learned
To cry on command
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
My mother died
Every night
It's safe to say
Don't quote me on that
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
The black sheep got
Blackmailed again
Forgot to put
On the zip code
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
Somewhere I have heard this before
In a dream my mem'ry has stored
As defense I'm neutered and spayed
What the hell am I trying to say?
It is now time
To make it unclear
To write off lines
That don't make a sense
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
One more special
Message to go
And then I'm done
And I can go home
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

Underneath the bride
the tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
and the drippings from the ceiling
But it's okay to eat fish
'cause they haven't any feelings
Something in the way
Mmmm...
Something in the way, yeah
Mmmm...
