Bad Religion - Billy: chords

A                           G
I can recall the warm youth of a summer day, yeah
F                     G
The sweetest lemonade, the darkest game arcade
A                                G
And Billy had a yearning in the corner of his mind, yeah
F                     G
It moved him secretly, it moved him powerfully

F                   C                G         A
But prescience was lacking and the present was all
        F               C          G
And his aptitudes were carelessly wasted
      F          C              G           A
And challenging life with the abandon of a fool
     F             C            A
He squandered the hours of his day, yeah

Then darkness and disorder slapped him sharply in the face, yeah
It hit him like a friend
Struck somethin' deep within
He couldn't break the chain of slow decay that seemed to drag him
Just like a fatal tide
Toward the other side

And Billy was a lunatic just barkin' at the moon
And his brain was totally wasted
He then exchanged his friends for a needle and a spoon
And he threw his future away, yeah

E                    G               E   G
Bolt the door and throw away the key, yeah
E                      G                   E G
Your dim reflection is all that you can see

So where is the justice when no one is at fault
And a human life is tragically wasted?
How fragile is the flame that burns within us all
To light each passing day, yeah?
