A5                                         E5    
Lately I'm getting better 
F#m                     E5 
Wish I could stay sick with you 
D5                              Dm7
But there's too many egos left to bruise 

A5                                                   E5  
Call it a sin you call it what ever 
F#m                    E5 
Eating deep inside of you 
D5 
Well if were me it's all I'd ever do

F#m                     E5 
I'll steal something good for you 
D5                       
But the criminal in me is no-one new 

RIFF E (x2) 

A5                                      E5 E5  
Til you find something better  
F#m                     E5
When there's nothing left to use 
D5 
And everything starts going down on you

About the artist behind Generator:

Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995.[1] Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group. Goldsmith and Smear left after the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997). They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group's third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).

Chris Shiflett joined as the band's second guitarist after the completion of There is Nothing Left to Lose. The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007. Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys.
