[B]    [Em]    
[C]Shakedown 197[B]9 [Em]    
[C]Cool kids never have the [B]time [Em]    
[C]On a live wire right up off the [D]street
You and [Am]I should mee[B]t [Em]    
[C]Junebug skipping like a [B]stone [Em]    
With the [C]headlights pointed at the [B]dawn [Em]    
[C]We were sure we'd never see an [D]end to it [Am]all   

And [D]I don't even [Am]care to shake these zipper [D]blues
And we don't [Am]know   
Just where our bones will [D]rest
To dust I [Am]guess
Forgotten a[D]nd absorbed into [Am] the eart[B]h below

[C]Double cross the vacant and the [B]bored [Em]    
[C]They're not sure just what we have in [B]store
[Em]Morphine city slippin' [D]dues down to [Am]see   

That [D]we don't even [Am]care as restless as we [D]are  
We feel the [Am]pull in the land of a thousand [D]guilts
And pour[Am]ed cement, lamente[D]d and assured
To the lights and [C]towns below
[D]Faster than the [C]speed of sound
[D]Faster than we [C]thought we'd go
[D]Beneath the [Am]sound of [B]hope

[C]Justine never knew the [B]rules, [Em]    
[C]Hung down with the freaks and the [B]ghouls [Em]    
No [C]apologies ever need be [B]made [Em]    
[C]I know you better than you [D]fake it to [Am]see   

That [D]we don't even [Am]care to shake these zipper [D]blues
And we don't [Am]know just where our bones will [D]rest
To dust I [Am]guess
Forgotten and [D]absorbed into the [Am]earth be[B]low  

[C]The street heats the urgency of [B]now [Em]    
[C]As you see there's no [D]one around
