WAKE-UP BOMB                    R.E.M.
 
From: Jesse Sage (jsage@fas.harvard.edu)

{Verse:  E D A G}

                 E           D
I look good in a glass pack
                A     G
I look good and mean
               E                 D                   A     G
I look good in metallic sick wraparounds blackout tease
                 E       D          A          G
I scud along the horizon chew some sweet tree
                     E            D
I get high in my low-ass boot cut cheap
             A     G
I like being seen
                    E              D
I look good with my drink eat no sleep
                        A    G
Take a leap, longevity
                  E              D         A     G
I look good in my attitude, latitude, 1973
I'm in deep


C  G          C       G    C        D
My head's on fire and high esteem
C        G     C           G                  D
Carry my dead, bored, been there, done that, anything
E       D
Oh, the wake-up bomb
A       G 
Oh, the wake-up bomb
E       D
Oh, the wake-up bomb
A       G
Oh, the wake-up bomb

C  G          C       G    C        D
My head's on fire and high esteem
C   G         C    G        D
Get drunk and sing along to Queen
C           G     C         G        D
Practice my T-Rex moves and make the scene
C        G     C           G                  D
Carry my dead, bored, been there, done that, anything



I had to knock a few buildings over
I make an ugly mess
I had to blow a gasket
Drop transmission
I had to decompress
I had to write the great American novel
I had a neutron bomb
I had to teach the world to sing by the age of 21
I wake up (I wake up)
I wake up (I wake up)
I threw up when I saw what I'd done


Oh, the wake-up bomb
Oh, the wake-up bomb
My head's on fire and high esteem
Get drunk and sing along to Queen
Practice my T-Rex moves and make the scene
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything


{Solo}:  e -12----10---/--9----7--
         b ----12-----/-----10----


I've had enough, I've seen enough, I've had it all, I'm giving up
I won the race, I broke the cup, I drank it all, I spit it up
I've had enough, I've seen enough, I've had it all, I'm giving up
I won the race, I broke the cup, I drank it all, I spit it up

Yeah, atomic, Supersonic
What a joke, I'm dumb
See ya, don't wanna be you
Lunch meat, Pond scum

My head's on fire in high esteem
Get drunk and sing along to Queen
Practice my T-Rex moves and make the scene
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything
