1.1 Angsty Voting Song #1 :KeyOfC:Original:Otis:
─────────────────────────

1.1.1 Intro:
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

(am) I’ll head on down on (F) November 8th (am)To the local municipal
(F)polling place (am )But as I fill in my bubbles,(F) I feel a little
troubled, (F) Cause there’s (G) something that we’ve gotta face:

(repeat) Your vote may count by the numbers But don’t think that
you’re making change. Congratulations, all hail, you voted, Wear your
sticker with pride,

(repeat) But don’t get to feeling saintly, Chances are, you voted for
A no good, low-down, money-loving rat, And there wasn’t anything you
could do about that.


1.1.2 Chorus 1: (slowly)
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

By (am) all means vote, if it (F) gives you hope, But it (am) doesn’t
do shit for (G) me. (repeat) When the count is done, and somebody’s
won, Do you know where I’m gonna be?


1.1.3 Verse 1: very fast and angsty
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

(C)Organizing labor unions, (F) feeding the hungry, (C)Passing out
flyers and (G) feeling angry, Stealing from the workplace and not
feeling guilty, Telling a kid all the things that they can be.
Standing on a roof shouting “fuck the police!” Doing what I can
disturb disturb the peace. Giving women autonomy and everyone a
voice, I can’t do everything but I don’t have a choice.


1.1.4 Chorus 2: jammin, same chords as chorus 1
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

By all means vote, if i gives you hope, But it doesn’t do shit for me.
When the count is done, and somebody’s won, Do you know where I’m
gonna be?


1.1.5 Verse 2: Can it be any more angsty? Try. Same chords as verse 1.
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

Questioning authority, planting a forest, Heading to the places where
people are poorest, , Praying for peace and fighting the war Of a
people who don’t have to take any more Of politicians telling us
they’ve got it covered, That hurricane victims have totally recovered.
I’ll be in the audience holding a sign Saying “you’ve got yours, now
how about mine?”


1.1.6 Chorus 3,, one more time, angst leaking out your ears, feet stomping,
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

By all means vote if it gives you hope, But it doesn’t do shit for me.
When the count is done and somebody’s won, Do you know where I’m gonna
be? (am) Well you know where I’m (G)gonna be. (C)

Always end on C.

1.3.1 Verse 1 :CEAmF:CAmDmG:CEAmF:CAmFG7:CE:AD7:CEDmG:CE:CEDmG7:
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

C E Am F

If I had a dime for every time I got away without a parking ticket

C Am Dm G

I wouldn’t have enough to pay the fines for all the times when I
didn’t

C E Am F

And if I had an ounce of self-respect for every time I fell asleep
with a forty

C Am F G7

in my hand I wouldn’t do it again, but here I am

C E

And if I had a lick of sense I wouldn’t have spent

A D7

Two hundred grand on a liberal arts education ‘cause

C E Dm G

Debating with strangers on the internet sure isn’t paying the bills

C E

And if I could Well I’d find my motivation and I’d jump right in it


C E Dm G7

But I'm feeling overwhelmed so I’ll keep my distance for at least
another hour or two


1.3.2 Chorus
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

C E A F C

Somewhere along there, I got lost somewhere in between

A D G

Here and utopia, I’m stumbling in circles again

C E Am F C

Is it my laziness or am I just crazy to believe

Am Dm G7

I could change anything, even the way I am


1.3.3 V2
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

C E Am F

When I sleep at night I close my eyes and fantasize about taking the
fight to the streets

C Am Dm G

But what use could there be in the streets for me? I’ve never even
broken a bone

C E

Any game you wanna play I’ll be the last one picked

Am F C

If you can’t throw a ball then you sure can’t throw a brick

Am

Through a starbucks window

Dm G7

You’re on your own

C E A D7

But I’m training every day for the tear gas blasts, these days I cry
all the time

C E Dm G

In fact, I can feel my eyes welling up right now as we speak

C E

And I’m less and less worried ‘bout going to prison

A D7

‘Cause a life in solitary wouldn’t be so different

C E

From the four walls trapping me here with all my demons

Dm G7

In this room that I cannot leave


1.3.4 [chorus]
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

C E Am F C

It’s so pathetic what an unsympathetic mess I am

Am Dm G

I let down everyone I know and it’s all my fault

C E Am F C

I can’t stop getting up on the depressed side of the bed

Am Dm G7

Most days I can’t even get out of bed at all


1.3.5 [tempo change/interlude]
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

| this is literally just vishal making the song more intense |
+------------------------------------------------------------+


1.3.6 Verse 3
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

C E

There’s nothing left to say and even less to lose

Am F C

Jump in the backseat if that sounds good to you

Am

We’re level-headed for the interstate

Dm G

Hitting green lights all the way

C E

The pedal to the metal and a foot on the dash

Am F C

We’re gonna crash right through the flashes of the police lights

Am

Don’t try to stop us at the barricades ‘cause we’ll be

Dm G7 C

Up up up and away, whoo-o-oa

E Am F C

Whoo-o-o-oooooooooooo-ooooooa whoo-o-oa

Am Dm G

Whoo-o-o-oooooooo-oooa

C Ea

There’s a very fine line between disenchantment and

Am F

The point where you no longer fear the consequences

C Am

Wouldn’t you rather make a break for it

Dm G

Then suffer one more day on your own

C E

I promise I won’t stop the car until we reach freedom

Am F

There’s a long way to go but I think that we can beat ‘em

C Am

I know it’s hard to survive in this world, but

Dm G7 C

You don’t have to do it alone, whoo-o-oa

E Am F C

Whoo-o-o-ooooooooooooooo-ooooa whoo-o-oa

Am Dm G7 C

Whoo-o-o-ooooooooo-oa whoo-o-oa

F Fm

Whoo-o-o-ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-ooooooooooooooa

C Dm F C

Whoo-o-oa whoo-o-o-oa whoo-o-o-ooooooooooaaaaaaaaa

╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

C F C F Am My friends and I, my friends and I we’re gonna build a
rocket, gonna build a rocket ship

G7

To launch us into space

C F C Am

From a couple broken laptops and a rusted water heater and the old
school bus that’s

Dm G7 C

In the ditch behind my parents’ place

C F C F

And I guess it’s true, I guess it’s true that we don’t know where
we’re going, that we don’t know Am G7 what we’re doing or just how
it’s gonna be

cannot be achieved here

few more good people who want to live and love and leave behind F G7 C
Our solar system’s capitalist paradigm


1.5.3 Verse 2
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

You know they say, you know they say that there’s four hundred billion
planets

In four hundred billion orbits ‘round four hundred billion suns

And twenty billion of them have Earthlike conditions so we’ll set our
gps

to take us to the nearest one

And when we get there when we get to where it is we’re going well
there is no way of knowing

What it’s going to be like

But we’ve got a couple years to talk about it in the rocket,

yeah we’ll build a new world for ourselves, this time we’ll do it
right


1.5.4 Chorus 2
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

And yeah, we’re making it up as we go along but we’ve got some good
ideas

And enough bravery to try, we know it won’t be perfect but

It will be better than whatever the earthlings had in mind

Whenthey built the capitalist paradigm


1.5.5 Verse 3
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

We won’t have any bankers and we won’t have any prisons ‘cause we

Won’t have any cops protecting private property

And we won’t have any bosses and we won’t have any landlords,

Everybody will be equal, everybody will be free

And because we won’t have money, we won’t have to sell our labor and
so

We all will be able to do whatever we please

We’ll sing and dance and play and have parades and parties everyday

I’m telling you it will be great, GALACTIC ANARCHY


1.5.6 Chorus
╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌╌

And if you want to come on our grand adventure grab a backpack and
some snacks

And stash them underneath a seat because there’s

Always room for a few more good people who want to live and love and
leave behind

Our solar system’s capitalist paradigm
