[Verse 1]
F                    G     F
..I'm turnin' off my radio...
                C
'Cause I can't stand to know
                         Am
Why everything's so terrible
F                      G   F
..I'm switchin' off my telephone
                       C
It feels like a second home
                                   Am
But I'm not sure it's that comfortable

[Pre-Chorus]
         F
Got this world in our hands
G      F
Like a pearl in a clam
G          F   C               G
We lettin' go, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
[Chorus]
                     F
Why is everything so hopeless?
Am                  G
Everybody's lost control
  C                           F          Am   G
I wish that I could fill this ocean size open hole
                          F
How the hell are we still copin'
     Am                G
When everybody fill so broke?
  C                           F          Am   G
I wish that I could fill this ocean size open hole
But what do I know?

[Verse 2]
F                 C     F
..I wanna go grab a megaphone
                             
And scream 'til my lungs are gone
C                       D        Am
..Wake up the world and let them know
G
Ayy, ayy-ayy, yeah
F                            G
Can't just wait until you're older
   F                           G
To take the weight up off your shoulders
C                   D
If it makes you cry...
    Am                       G
You probably doin' alright.....

[Pre-Chorus]
         F
Got this world in our hands
G      F
Like a pearl in a clam
G          F   C               G
We lettin' go, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]
                     F
Why is everything so hopeless?
Am                  G
Everybody's lost control
  C                           F          Am   G
I wish that I could fill this ocean size open hole
                          F
How the hell are we still copin'
     Am                G
When everybody fill so broke?
  C                           F          Am   G
I wish that I could fill this ocean size open hole
              F               Am           G
But what do I know? Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh oh-oh

[Bridge]
C                      F               Am           G
But what the hell do I know? Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh oh-oh
                       F               Am           G
But what the hell do I know? Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh oh-oh
C                      F               Am           G
But what the hell do I know? Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh oh-oh

[Outro]
                     F
Why is everything so hopeless?
Am                  G
Everybody's lost control
  C                           F          Am   G
I wish that I could fill this ocean size open hole
C                         F
How the hell are we still copin'
     Am                G
When everybody fill so broke?
  C                           F          Am   G
I wish that I could fill this ocean size open hole
