1. If the truth really matters, if lifeís really there

Em††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††† D

Then God must be watching over us, laughing somewhere.

G†††††††††††††††††† D††††††† C††† G††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††† C

But if itís all just illusion, man I donít want to know.

Em†††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Just pass out the 3-D glasses, and on with the show.

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Cause I want to reach heaven, but I donít want to die.

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††† G D C††††††††††††† G D C

Unless Godís got a sense of humor, Iím gonna fry; Iím gonna fry.

††††††††††††††††† Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††† D†††††††††††††††† G

Bridge 1.My special prosecutor called to help me confess.

Bm†††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††† D†††††††††††††††† G

He said I hereby accuse you ofówait; Iíll just let you guess.

E††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

But the rumors are flying, while youíre just singing songs

E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G D C

That at some point in your life you have done something horribly wrong, something horribly wrong!

†††† G†††††††† D†††††††††† C†††††††††††† G††††††††† D†††††††††††† C

2. Years ago in a cloakroom, Sister Kenneth Marie

Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††† D

Found my hand in my pocket; I was doomed for eternity.

G††† ††††††††††††††††††D†† C††† G††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††† C

Till an underage angel rescued me from myself.

Em††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††††† D

I was quiet and studious; she was into good health.

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†† ††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

And I try to reach heaven, but Iíd rather not die.

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††† G D C††††††††††††† G D C

And if Godís got no sense of humor, then Iím gonna fry; Iím gonna fry.

††††††††††††††††††††† Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††† D†††††††††† G

Bridge 2.That real cute teletubbie, the articulate one!

Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††† D††††††††††††††††††† G

Every morning in tele-dreamland we romp and have fun.

E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†† E††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

And our hallowed forefathers all got martyred for this:

E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† GD C

Now the whole rule of law comes unsealed with a kiss, unsealed with a kiss.

†††† G††††††††††††††† D††††††††† C††† G††††††††††††† D†††††† C

3. So if stuff really matters, if lifeís really there

Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††† †††††Am††††††††††††††††††† D

Then Iím sure God is watching over us, laughing somewhere.

G†††††††††††††††††† D††††† C††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††† C

But if loveís just illusion, hey I donít want to know.

Em†††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††† ††††††Am†††††††††††††† D

Just crank up the virtual being, and on with the show.

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Cause I want to be reborn, but I donít want to die.

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† †††††††††D†††††††††††††† G D C†††††††††††† G D C

Unless Godís got a sense of humor, then Iím gonna fry; Iím gonna fry.
