Notes: Again, I separated the verses to emphasize the musical structure

of the song, and the places where the music repeats. You can notice

that in the 1st Verse, there is a section added (C x 2) that is not in

the 2nd Verse. That was to give more space between the Intro and the

1st Verse. Section A is always followed by section B, and because

section B has an extra beat in it, the song can't go back and start the

Verse on part B (without being very obvious). So, part C is just played

an extra 2 times. The Bass line is very sneaky because even though some

of the notes change from measure to measure, they only change by a

half-step! If you turn up the bass on your stereo and listen closely,

you'll understand. Playing just the bass notes along with the song

makes it even easier to spot. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Intro

You are, you are, you are you (x4)

1st Verse

You are plain insane

Inside you live

Tonight

Afraid the pain will give

Don't you want to feel

Death has done your part

You chose not to feel

You've won a lonely heart

The devil opens his eyes

He breathes right into your face

If you like the smell

You'll really like this place

You'll really like this place (x2)

Chorus

You'll really like this PLACE,

Are you ready to SHAKE?

Don't be afraid of the SNAKE,

Will to negotiate...

You are, you are, you are you

Get used to it. Open...

The same don't appeal, but it will

You are, you are, you are you

2nd Verse

Live to live

To die,

inside you will

Anticipate solitude

Follow me back home

No other place to go

no need to smile or get stoned

You'll always be alone

The devil opens his eyes

He breathes right into your face

If you like the smell

You'll really like this place

2nd Chorus

You'll always be alone

Your body stripped down to the bone

No breath to scream out or moan

No freedom, nowhere to run

You are, you are, you are you

Get used to it. Open...

The same don't appeal but it will

You are, you are, you are you

Repeat last 4 lines of the Chorus twice

Solitude, solitude...

Here is how Chris York (dyork@parlorcity.com) thinks part 'A' is played:
