  		Jeff Rosenstock's song "Amen" from his album "I Look Like Shit" 

E                        
Waiting to go to school on some suburban road 
A                       F# 
They took my backpack and emptied it in the snow 
E                                           E           Dbm     A 
The kids at the bus stop screamed nothing. 


E 
I saw an old lady one time on Astor Place 
A                       F# 
steal an old man's glasses and punch him in the face 
E                                      E                Dbm     A 
Me and the others screamed nothing. 


A 
And what's the difference if the bombs fall from the sky 
E                            Abm                Dbm  Abm 
And what's the difference if you like being alive 
A                               B                       E 
Yeah what's the difference, 'cause we're all just gonna die. 


E 
A crucifix and two framed pictures of the pope 
A                       F# 
I passed them all as I got evicted from my home. 
A                       B(once)     E   Dbm     A        
My Catholic landlord screamed "Amen." 


A 
We don't believe in God or spirits in the sky. 
E                       Abm     F#m     B 
Unless we're desperate and need to justify 
A                          B 
the shitty things we do so we apologize 
Dbm                             E 
"Ya gotta get rid of my guilt, God." 


A 
Before I fled the scene I smeared my shit along the baseboards 
E                               Abm 
Took the moldy foodstuffs, lined them up along the tile floor 
A 
Jerked off on the window screen, fridge open and toilet running 
E                         Abm           F#m     D 
Barely felt reprieve before the deluge of regret came flooding 


A 
Now I can't get to sleep because I have this useless conscience. 
E                                Abm     
And I can't get revenge due to this stupid moral compass. 
A                             B                                E         
And honestly I feel that all these feelings aren't worth it in the end. 

   (interlude; listen for chord changes, I tried to make it make sense): 
E          F# B A                
F#m             E                
B               E 
E          F# B A                        
F#              A 
B               E                                        

A 
We don't believe in God or spirits in the sky 
E                       Ab               F#   F#m        
Unless we're desperate or know someone who died. 
A                       B        
We gain perspective and we start to change our lives 
Dbm                           A 
Then still do shitty things when the moment arrives. 
A 
So what's the difference if the bombs fall from the sky 
E                          Abm              F#   B 
So what's the difference if you like being alive 
A                            B 
Yeah what's the fucking point of thinking as you die 
Dbm                              
"Ya gotta forgive all my sins, God." 

   (end; listen for changes and shit): 
E   Dbm   A     E      Abm    A    B  Ab  E    Dbm    A      E      Ab    A  


I used 'b' for flat because that's what I typed, and 'm' is minor 
it's probably not perfect by any means but this is what was on "chordify." I kind of like playing an F#7  
instead of the F# just because I like the chord but what do I know.
