 |: C               D             Bm              Em
 Before there were junk stores, before there was junk
     Bm             Em             Am           D
 He lived with his mother and the torments of Christ
 |:  C               D        Bm             Em
 The world was transformed; a crowd gathered round
 Bm                  Em        Am                D
 Pressed against his window so they could be the first

 |: C               D             Bm              Em
 He lost all his friends; he didn't need his friends
     Bm             Em             Am           D
 He lived with his mother and repeated himself
 |: C               D             Bm              Em
 The world has forgotten; the world moved along
     Bm             Em             Am           D
 The crowd at his window went back to their homes
