No thesis existed for burning cities down at such a rampant rate
C                                            Am
 No graphics and no fucking Powerpoint presentation
                                                      C
So they just DIY'd that shit and they built their own bombs
                                           Am  (pause)
She's his suicide blond, she's number than gold

One more off key anthem

Let your teeth sink in
                              Dm
Remember me as I was not as I am
      Am
And I said "I'll check in tomorrow if I don't wake up dead,"
F                                                              Dm
 I kept wishing she had blonde ambition and she'd let it go to my head

F
Rat a tat tat

Am
 If my love is a weapon

There's no second guessing when I say
F
Rat a tat tat
              G
Rat a tat tat tat hey
Am
 If my heart is a grenade

You pull the pin and say:
[Chorus] C We're all fighting growing old G We're all fighting growing old Am F In the (hopes!) hopes C F Of a few minutes more C G To get get on St. Peter's list Am F But you need to lower your standards C F Cause it's never Am Getting any better than this [Verse II] Am We are professional ashes of roses C This kerosene's live You settled your score Am This is where you come to beg, unborn and unshaven C Killing fields of fire to a congress of ravens Am (pause) This is what we do, baby, we nightmare you Am I'm about to make your sweat roll backwards And your heart beat in reverse F Our guts can't be reworked
As alone as a little white church Dm In the middle of the desert getting burned Am But I'll take your heart served up two ways F I sing a bitter song I'm the lonelier version of you Dm I just don't know where it went wrong F Rat a tat tat G Rat a tat tat tat hey Am If my love is a weapon There's no second guessing when I say F Rat a tat tat G Rat a tat tat tat hey Am If my heart is a grenade You pull the pin and say: [Chorus] C We're all fighting growing old G We're all fighting growing old Am F In the (hopes!) hopes C F Of a few minutes more C G To get get on St. Peter's list Am F But you need to lower your standards C F Cause it's never Am Getting any better than this Rat a tat tat Rat a tat tat tat hey It's never F Getting any better than this Rat a tat tat Rat a tat tat tat hey It's never Am Getting any better than this Rat a tat tat Rat a tat tat tat hey It's never F Getting any better than this Rat a tat tat Rat a tat tat tat hey It's never C Getting any better than this C She's sick and she's wrong She's young dirty blonde G And you sink inside her like a suicide bomb Am He says "I've seen bigger" She says "I've lit better" F And they throw the matches down into the glitter C Not a dry eye left in the house G Go boy, go boy, run for your life Am Go boy, go boy, run for your life F Go boy, go boy, run for your life (pause) We're all fighting growing old We're all fighting growing old Am F In the (hopes!) hopes C F Of a few minutes more C G To get get on St. Peter's list Am F But you need to lower your standards C F Cause it's never Am Getting any better than this Rat a tat tat Rat a tat tat tat hey It's never F Getting any better than this Are you ready for another bad poem?
