|A     Bm G|A      Bm G|A     Bm G|A     A   | 
      |A         A7 A6 A 
I like nightmares 
            |A       A7 A6 A 
I like being witless 
           |A         A7 A6 A 
One for the news flash 
       |A       A7 A6 A 
Cool eyewitness 
      |E5          F#m5 Bm     G          |D         Dsus4 D 
Eighty-one, eighty-two, eighty-three, it's happening 
Gotta be a fucking fool to blame TV 
         |D          Dsus4 D 
Don't get trapped in 
         |Bm                    G 
If you're lucky, be the same as me 
      |A     A7 A6 A 
I like nightmares 
      |A    A7 A6 A 
Yes, I do 
         |D             G               |D 
There's a simple way to die they call it news 
         |D             G               |A      D/A A 
There's a simple way to fly they call it booze 
          |G            F                   |G 
There's an easy quiet escape, just sleep and cruise 
    |G           F                 |A        A   | 
It's justifiable rape, they say you choose 
And I like nightmares 
I like feeling cheekless {?} 
Lifting up my lighter {?} 
Watching life with west {?} 
'81, '82, '83, it's happening  
Can we afford strike three 
Don't trust the captain 
He's just a boy like me 
And I like nightmares, yes, I do 
There's a common way to weep, they say just smoke 
You can cry yourself to sleep, they say just toke 
There's a path that never fails, you can't get lost 
Don't need roads, you're on rails, I'll pay the cost 
And I like nightmares, yes, I do 
       |G                  C           |D 
We were wasted, but you're only waylaid once 
       |G            C                 |G 
What we tasted was a voucher, pay their lunch 
               |C                       G 
We robbed their banks and we took their gold 
       |Am                       Bm 
And our lies in the tank must've sounded old 
      |A         D/A |A 
But we pleaded 
               |G              C            |D       E          |A    A 
I said, "You're honor were not chumps, after all, we only did it once." 
We like nightmares 
We taste our fitness 
All kind of goulash 
A taint in the midwest 
'81, '82, '83, it's happening  
Nothing votes interest free 
Don't care what it's wrapped in 
You can be abreast like me 
          |A        A7 A6 A 
And I like nightmares 
      |A   A7 A6 A 
Yes, I do 
Bm G  |A           Bm G |A      A  || 
I like nightmares
