alright i'm on johnson avenue in san luis obispo
and i'm five years old or six maybe
and indications that there's something wrong with our new house
C             D
trip down the wire twice daily

i'm in the living room watching the watergate hearings
while my stepfather yells at my mother
launches a glass across the room straight at her head
and i dash upstairs to take cover

        C                                G
lean in close to my little record player on the floor
C                          D

          G C     D    G

ok so look i'm seventeen years old
and you're the last best thing i've got going
but then the special secret sickness starts to eat through you
what am i supposed to do, no way of knowing

so i follow you down your twisting alleyways
find a few cul de sacs of my own
there's only one place this road ever ends up
and i don't want to die alone

                 C                           G
let me down, let me down, let me down gently
C                       D
when the police come to get me 
               G C     D    G
i;m listening to dance music
G C   D    G
