		Verse:(ska-rhythm)
			 A              C#m
			  You found a way to draw a line.
                    F#m                 
           Between the world and you. 
                E                    A
           Faking your identity it's true.  Did
                              C#m
           you think the word alternative,
                     F#m                 E
           was only meant for the likes of you?
		
		Pre-Chorus: 
		      B5                             E5
             Do you think that they're too cool now?
                B5                E5
             Being popular is lame.
                C#5                            F#5 B5  D5 
             You're the one that made them popular,
                                               E5(2)
             all their songs are still the same.
		Verse:
            A                    C#m
             You found them first, it made you
                                  F#m
             stand apart, you know?  But then 
                                 E
             everyone jumped on the same
                           A
             bandwagon, making you an 
                           C#m
             average Joe.  A lemming for the
                          F#m
             mediocre, you were just a plain 
                            E 
             old joker, status quo.
	Pre-Chorus:
                B5               E5        B5   
                 Blame it on the band now.  If you prick them
                         E5    C#5  
                 do they bleed?  What's the point in
                        F#5        B5  D5   
                 playing what they want, if you
                                 E5(2)
                 want let them succeed?
	
		Chorus: 
                A5        D5    G5  
                 Do you remember where we all
                 E5(2)      A5        D5
                 came from?  Do you remember
                           G5   E5(2) A5 
                 what it's all about?  When you
                 D5              G5    E5(2)
                 made a point to be objective,
                A5           D5
                 before you started writing
                 E5(2)

	Pre-Chorus:
                B5               
                 You sunk your worth in being
                E5        B5
                 different, just to be like your own 
                E5    F#5                B5    D5
                 kind.  You traded in objectiveness,
                                     E5(2) 
                 for the underground you follow blind

	Chorus

I believe the C#m in the verse should actually be C# major.
