																				This song sounds best if played on an acoustic  since the chords cover most of
the bass and such.  Looked all up and down but all I could find on this song was
crap if I found anything at all.. So, me and a few friends sat down and this is
what we came up with.. enjoy

INTRO

VERSE 1
D                                                  Am
I had visions I was in them I was looking into the mirror
                    C            C/B                    D
To see a little bit clearer, the rottenness and evil in me
D                                                             Am
Fingertips have memories mine can't forget the curves of your
fde
 body
                      C          C/B                        D
And when I feel a bit naughty, I run it up the flagpole and see



    

Who salutes, but no one ever does

CHORUS
D                        C/A              C    Csus4           D
I'm not sick but I'm not well, and I'm so hot, cause I'm in hell

VERSE 2
Been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding
The cretins cloning and feeding, and I don't even own a tv
Put me in the hospital for nerves and then they had to commit me
You told them all I was crazy, they cut off my legs now
I'm an amputee god damn you

CHORUS
I'm not sick but I'm not well, and I'm so hot, cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well, and it's a sin, to live so well

BRIDGE
A                G                       F

I wanna publish 'zines, and rage against machines
        D2/F#                                       A

I wanna pierce my tongue, it doesn't hurt, it feels fine
            G                             F

The trivial sublime, I'd like to turn off time
            D2/F#  D11/F#             D2/F#  D11/F#

and kill my mind,        you kill my mind

VERSE 3
Paranoia, paranoia, everybody's comin' to get me
Just say you never met me, I'm going underground with the moles (to get holes)
Hear the voices in my head I swear to god it sounds like they're snoring
But if you're bored then you're boring, the agony and the irony
they're killing me...woah

CHORUS
I'm not sick but I'm not well, and I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well, and it's a sin to live so well


    D   Am   C   C/B   C/A   Csus4   A   F   D2/F#    D11/F#

View Just Lyrics...

I had visions, I was in them
I was looking into the mirror
To see a little bit clearer
Rottenness and evil in me
Fingertips have memories
Mine can't forget the curves of your body
And when I feel a bit naughty
I run it up the flagpole and see who salutes
(But no one ever does)
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
Been around the world and found
That only stupid people are breeding
The cretins cloning and feeding
And I don't even own a tv
Put me in the hospital for nerves
And then they had to commit me
You told them all I was crazy
They cut off my legs now I'm an amputee, god damn you
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live so well
I want to publish zines
And rage against machines
I want to pierce my tongue
It doesn't hurt, it feels fine
The trivial sublime
I'd like to turn off time
And kill my mind
You kill my mind
Paranoia, paranoia
Everybody's coming to get me
Just say you never met me
I'm going underground with the moles digging holes
Hear the voices in my head
I swear to god it sounds like they're snoring
But if you're bored then you're boring
The agony and the irony, they're killing me
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live so well
