These lyrics may be an unfinished version of the song

("whatever", etc.)... <shrug>

Basic strumming pattern is on beats 1, 4, and 6-8, except

in the middle section ("nobody knows you" thru "naivete"),

where the chords are strummed down on even 8th notes using

only the first few strings (i.e. 5- (power) chords)

 

 

D2 A2

Be yourself, don't be yourself

 

e G

Speak your mind, don't speak your mind

 

D2 A2

Stand alone, don't stand alone

 

e G

Be on your own, be all alone

 

G e

And as the bells ring the graces

 

D

Of a newborn day

 

G e

The voices sing the praises

 

D A2 e

Of your promised youth, a promised whenever

 

 

G

And noone can see you

 

e

So do what you want to

 

A2 C2

You're invisible next to forever

 

 

D2 A2

Be yourself, don't be yourself

 

e G

Speak your mind, don't speak your mind

 

D2 A2

Stand alone, don't stand alone

 

e G

Be on your own, be all alone

 

 

G e

Take some time to thank the souls

 

D

For all their emptiness

 

G e

Come to feed the dreams of sons and daughters

 

D A2 e

drifts for ransoms, whatever

 

 

G

And nobody knows you

 

e

Even if they pretend to

 

A2 C2

They're all sure that they're all so clever

 

 

G

Truth is rare, this I believe

 

e

The truth is in their pure deceit

 

A2 C2

Blessed in your naivete

 

 

D2 A2 e G

Ooooooooh, I thank you all

 

D2 A2 e G

Ooooooooh, I thank you all

 

D2 A2 e G

Ooooooooh, I thank you all, I do

 

D2 A2 e

Ooooooooh, I thank you all
