NOTE: I'm finding it hard to tab beyond >>>: it gets confusing trying to

play it slow and write down the numbers but you have the idea.

It's real hard to play at first (i.e. don't try it on an acoustic)

but once you get the rhythm it's easy. The best thing to do would

be to play along with the song because it would be hard to do it

from tab alone without the rhythm. After I figured this out, I

saw Tim play it in concert and instead of playing it like this:

6:-0-0-7-0-10......

(10th fret, 6th string)

He played:

5:---------5-

6:-0-0-7-0---....

(5th fret, 5th string)

which is the same note, but I find it too hard to switch strings.

Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Riff 1 (x4)

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Don't fear mere words cuz if it takes a word ruin ya

You should have already hard you're finished through and soon ya

See that stifling sentences is so much more suspicious

Much worse could come of that so much more delicious

---> Play Riff 2 over:

To the dastardly basturdly plans of little mice and men

Ugly rears its head and speaks from now and then

People love to disagree so avoid the endless bout make no attempt

To try and suss the stupid out

But of the racist institutions simple minds belong

Not happy just being human, no wish to get along

Little people need exclusions sucker groups to throng

It makes them feel special it makes them feel strong

---> Play Riff 3 over:

Now I got a click but it's more like a family

Not an ethnic trip more like an ethic see

I write the rhyme today tell it to you later

Whether were coming in wack or what it's a waste to be a hater

Graffiti bombs-from the palms-love is so strong

Can't be stopped too long

For the night it will come

Shaped in the form of Mars that stone afar

Ghetto cool Oh well

Now you feel the spell

The color rocks the bell

---> Play Riff 1 over:

The king of swing rise to the top

The rhythm possessed in ya and it don't stop

The mise is broken The demon locin'

Dropping the bomb and all that is left is the smokin'

---> Play Fill 1 over:

Cloakin' chokin, the lyrics are spoken

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Infrared vision scopin' condition

Now breakin' 'em all to pieces like a sly rap bandit

With a fly Lu-Kang kick in Mortal Combat and I land it

---> Play Riff 2 over:

So get your own back when I jam it cold and

Hearing about you rhyme style been outmoded

The dopest flow upon the planet

Dope is the word the bro throw up on the down low goddammit

You juice your fucking friends like Dracula

But when we kick you out you're just brokula

You left a big surprise from Pacific Bell

Called all your relatives and your friends in Hell

---> Play Riff 3 over:

Now let me tell you something you fucking piece of shit

You'll never have no money, now tell me was it worth it?

You leave a trail of lies that's why you keep moving

We won't come after you we'd only end up provin

In the end revenge send ends to the defendant

I know that statement's true I wear it like a pendant

I know you'll hear this song so I think it's funny

The name is thief or trust and money

---> Play Riff 4 over:

Like Captain Picard we come hard in light years

Our star has long bust but now reappears

In your sky at night rising and immense

Yes you see ourselves in the shine of it

And so passing under the dome of the great sky

Beware we are the stars Holmes that you ruled by

Where death reborn into the world is a gift

So the future with no voice of its own will uplift

---> Play Final over:

All is gone, all is calm y'all

All is gone, all is calm y'all

All is gone, all is calm y'all

All is gone, all is calm y'all

_/SA: All is gone, all is calm y'all

\Nick: Set wrecked in L.A.

_/SA: All is gone, all is calm y'all

\Nick: In the Wetlands of New York

_/SA: All is gone, all is calm y'all

\Nick: Atlanta and Phoenix

_/SA: All is gone, all is calm y'all

\Nick:Portland, Lincoln and N.O.

---> Play Ending (x1)
