From Here To Utopia Song For The Desperate chords – Ramshackle Glory V2

 This is a revised version of the other "From here to utopia" tab. 
This one is correct, chords are from his zine. 
If you can't figure out how to play it listening to the acoustic version from Die 
The Nightmare might help.


Intro:

 Am E Am G E Am E Am G E Am E 
well, i’m afraid that the circles i’ve been drinking myself
                                       Am G E 
aren’t big enough for the vowels that i try to fit inside of them.
 Am 
when i was young, i drank too much,
             E Am 
and i’d be lying if i said i didn’t feel so goddamn young tonight;
           G E 
maybe too young to ask what’s on my mind.
 F Am 
like: if freedom means doing what you want (well),
 E Am 
don’t you gotta want something?
 F Am E 
and won’t you tell me that we want something more than just more beer?

and my friends, if that ain’t true, won’t you lie to me tonight? Oh yeah!

(Fast part) Am G E F x3, strum Am once then muted strumming

 Am E 
well, i’ve been listening to minor threat records all day,

and shit if i do not know every word.
 Am G E 
i sing along as i tie off.
 Am E 
and ian screams he’s “out of step” as i throw the cotton into the spoon, draw up into 
the syringe.
 Am G E 
i’ll know just what he means until i hit a vein.
 F Am E Am 
but after that i won’t have to bother with knowing who i am, for a while at least.
 F Am 
in a moment the whole world is gonna melt around me,
 E 
and i’ll swear i don’t miss it as a i lie to you tonight.
 C E Am F 
because i’m afraid to look the world in the eye.
 C E Am F 
if nothing’s gonna change, well, then i’d rather die.
 C E 
and i’m too unemployed to organize a union;
     Am F 
i’m too intoxicated to tear down a building.
 C E 
i’m too hopeless to look for a solution;
     Am 
i’m afraid that if i found one,
     F C 
i’d be out of excuses for the way i waste away
        E Am F 
in the gutters that i chose like fashion accessories to go with my dirty clothes.
   C E Am 
i haven’t bathed in months, but you know it’s not because i’ve been fighting bourgeois morals:
           F 
i’m just lazy and i’m young.

 Am E 
i’ve seen the best minds of my generation dying drunk or high from the rooftops to the 
parking lots,
 Am G E 
stomped to death in west philadelphian squats.
 Am E 
they’ve got me waiting on a day when we can say “fuck the police!” with a little bit of integrity,
 Am G E 
when it will mean: “i’ve got your back if you’ve got mine!”
 F Am E Am 
give me a scene where i believe in more than bad hair cuts, guilt, and misery.
 F Am 
i don’t know where i fit between the vegans and the nihilists.
 E 
that might be the first thing i’ve said that wasn’t a lie tonight.
 C E Am F 
because there’s gotta be something more than lying in the front yard, naked, screami

Feels like the time we spent was going to waste, sooner or later it's goodbye, we're gonna say
         D D7 Bm7 -5    -      E7               ( Dm )

Intro: riff ( C - F ) x3  riff  (see tab notes below)

            C - F C - F C    -      F C - F 
She's been good to me, she's been as kind as a girl can be
                G Am               riff
But I get the feeling, she thinks that certain something is gone
           C - F C - F C      -       F C - F 
It's the little things, like the words to the songs she sings
               G Am        
Are a little different, and I can tell that I'm not the one
              Dm   -      Em F    -   G C - F C - F 
It's just a matter of time, forgotten but not gone
           Dm   -    Em F    -   G C - F C   riff
I'm the invisible guy, forgotten but not gone

        C - F C - F C     -      F C - F 
It was my mistake, 'cause I gave less than I could take
              G Am             riff
And I never noticed she wanted something I didn't have
         C - F C - F C    -    F C - F 
And my roving eye, drove her off to another guy
                  G Am        
Now she doesn't see that to keep from crying I've got to laugh
              Dm   -      Em F    -   G C - F C - F 
It's just a matter of time, forgotten but not gone
           Dm   -    Em F    -   G C - F C 
I'm the invisible guy, forgotten but not gone

 NC                        riff2   G 
And it's so hard to believe
         Em Dm7 F G C - F - C 
When I call her, she turns away, like she don't see me at all

 NC                        riff2   G 
And it's so hard to believe
           Em Dm7 F G C - F C - F C - F  riff
All that water under the bridge, don't count for nothing at all

          C - F C - F C       -          F C - F 
It's the same old line, out of sight and you're out of mind
               G Am             riff
But I never thought that I'd see the day when she didn't care
          C - F C - F C      -     F C - F 
But the joke's on me, I came home yesterday to see
                G Am        
Them in bed together and making love like I wasn't there
           Dm   -      Em F    -   G C - F C - F 
It was a matter of time, forgotten but not gone
               Dm      -      Em F    -   G C - F C</s
