Daily Commute
—C ————————————— Am
I got hit in the face with a banana peel
——F—————————————G
one morning as I rode my bike to work
——C—————————————Am
I'd like to think maybe they didn't see me
————F———————————————G
But you know they're probably just being jerks
————C———————————Am
Do you think that I could be so self important
————F————————-G
As Those people riding in their cars?
————C——————————-Am
Do you think that I could be so self important,
——F—————————————G
If I tried really really really real really hard?
C—————————Am
just-how many single-gloves
F—————————G
Litter the sides of the roads?
C———————————Am
Lonely, matchless, useless gloves.
— F————————————G
It's likely that we'll probably never know
————F————-G——C
There are oooh sooo many roads
_______________*Power Pause*__________________
———->————————————Am
Do you think that I could be so self important
———F—————————————G
As the people throwing litter from their cars?
———-C————————————Am
Do you think that I could be so self important?
————F————————G
They're makin' it look like it's not very hard
——-F————————————G
but I bet lots of 'em think I'm self important
—C————————————Am
I bet they think I think I'll save the earth
F——————————————G
They assume an unknown man's opinion
———C———————————Am
Is the one that’s easiest to deem absurd
————F—————————G——————C
But the world doesn't work that way, that's just absurd
________________*Power Pause*_____________
>———————————Am
just how many fast food containers
———F—————————-G
Lie in ditches half covered with dirt?
———C——————————————Am
Those boxes and those cups held just one single person's lunch
——F—————————————-G
A product of wage workers and cattle raised in shit and blood
———-F————————————G
Do you think that I could be so self important?
———-C—————————-Am
Do you think I could be an elitist prick
———-F—————————————-G
Do you think that I could be so goddamn sure of myself?
———-C—————————————-Am
Do you think that That might help me to fit in?
——————F————————G
Because the humans are lazy little fuckers
—————-C———————————-Am
You have To bitch at us for us to clean our room
————F————————-G————-C—G—-C
And we don't Show signs of growing up Anytime soon

about

The Worst Generation Columbia, Missouri

Acoustic antifolkpunk / porch punk type sounds
FFO: Paul Baribeau, Chris Burrows, Captain Chaos

I'm just some rando who probably doesn't identify as human in the same way as most do. I'd put my name on these songs but I feel like they are about twice as honest and half as shy as I am able to be as a person so I'm a little uncomfortable with that.
