intro (fig. 1) 

(fig. 1 plays over each verse) 
You're back in your old neighborhood 
Cigarettes taste so good 
But you're so misunderstood 
So misunderstood 

There's somethin' there that you can't find 
Honest when you're tellin' a lie 
You're hurt but you don't know why? 
You love her but you don't know why? 

Short on long term goals 
There's a party there that we oughta go to 
Do you still love rock and roll? 
Do you still love rock and roll? 

It's only a quarter to three 
Reflecting off the O.C.D. 
You're lookin' at a picture of me 
You're starin' at a picture of me 

Take the guitar player for a ride 
'Cause he ain't never been satisfied 
He thinks he owes some kind of debt 
Be years before he gets over it 

(* Here he just plays a bunch of nonsense notes for effect. Hard to explain and  
pointless to try to tab out. Maybe just watch the video to see what I mean.) 

There's a fortune inside your head 
All you touch turns to lead 
You think you might just crawl back in bed 
The fortune inside your head 

You know you're just a mama's boy 
Positively unemployed 
So misunderstood 
So misunderstood 

G|--0-0-4--| x8 

I know you gotta God shaped hole 
Bleedin' out your out your heart full of soul 
So misunderstood, so misunderstood 
So misunderstood, so misunderstood 

G|--0--| (repeat to the end) 

I'd like to thank you all for nothin' 
I'd like to thank you all for nothin' at all 
I'd like to thank you all for nothin' 

Nothin', nothin', nothin', nothin' 
Nothin' at all 
Nothin', nothin', nothin' 
Nothin' at all
