Hey, I think this is getting to meÖ 
First class living in a goldfish bowl. 
Just when I think I have driven my life where I wanted it to be, 
it takes me to a place that I donít not want to go.

No, I just donít care. (I hear them under their breath.) 
No, I just donít care. (What they sayÖ when they think that I canít hear them.) 
I see them point and I see them stare.
 There goes that stupid guy with the short blonde hair. 

(Second verse is the same as the first, except with increased drum and
	bass presence and maybe the second guitar strumming at bit heavier)
Yeah, I think this is getting to meÖ 
First class living in a goldfish bowl. 
Just when I think I have driven my life where I wanted it to be, 
it takes me to a place that I donít want to go. 

(Pre chorus is also the same, again with extra drum and bass) 
All I ever wanted to do was to learn how to break this world in two. 
Teach it all the tricks I wanted it to learn, 
teach it how to do what I want it to do. 
No one really understands just how simple and plain and predictable I am. 
Because all I ever wanted real bad was to play guitar in a rock and roll band. 
Now Iím just losing my hair and learning how to smile.

VERSION 2 - Tabbed by Brett Paragow

^ - Upstroke

Chords Used:

Dm - X57765
Bb - 688766
G - 344533
F - 133211

To start, hit a Dm chord and hold it out for one measure.

Art then counts 1, 2, 3, 4, followed by drum smack, and then this riff, the 
song's main riff throughout:

             ^     ^
e|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--5--5--5--6-6-3-|
B|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--6--6--6--6-6-3-|
G|-7--7--7--7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--7-7-4-|
D|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--7--7--7--8-8-5-|
A|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--5--5--5--8-8-5-|
E|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--x--x--x--6-6-3-|

This is the prechorus riff, in between the main riff, and the chorus riff 
below it:

            ^     ^                  ^
e|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6--3--3--3--xx-1-1-1-|
B|-7--7--7--7-7-7-7--3--3--3--xx-1-1-1-|
G|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8--4--4--4--xx-2-2-2-|
D|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8--5--5--5--xx-3-3-3-|
A|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6--5--5--5--xx-3-3-3-|
E|-x--x--x--x-x-x-x--3--3--3--xx-1-1-1-|

This is the other main riff; it's played during the chorus, after the 
prechorus:

             ^    ^
e|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--5--5--5--1--1--1-|
B|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--6--6--6--1--1--1-|
G|-7--7--7--7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--2--2--2-|
D|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--7--7--7--3--3--3-|
A|-8--8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8--5--5--5--3--3--3-|
E|-6--6--6--6-6-6-6-6-6--x--x--x--1--1--1-|

Hope that helps the lot of ya; perhaps somebody can come in here afterwards 
and help me out a little bit with some of the rhythm and with some of the 
fills that I haven't really transcribed.  Regardless, enjoy it...
