BAND: Incubus
SONG: Pardon Me (Acoustic) [studio version]
ALBUMS: When Incubus Attacks (Vol. 1) and Make Yourself (Special Edition,
Bonus Disk)
GUITAR: 6 String Acoustic, Standard Tuning (EADGBE)
TABBED BY: Otis Beasley
EMAIL: otisbeasley@hotmail.com
OPEN IN NOTEPAD (WITH WORD WRAP OFF)
This is my first tab, I'm only just 16 (today) and I've only had a guitar for
two and a bit months, but I'm quite sure this version is as close to perfect as
you're gonna get (unless they bring out an official one).
The studio version is quite different and more difficult than the live unplugged
version. If you don't believe me about this (like the chords in the chorus) -
then listen to it. I have tabbed out the rhythm perfectly, even the
improvisations (like extra chords or passing notes) in the verses and choruses.
You may still want to listen to the recording to work out where the accents are
(like in the prechoruses and choruses) and just to get the feel of the sing -
its a lot easier if you've heard it. Any thankyous, corrections or insults to
my email (above).
By the way, one "-" equals a semiquaver and the speed is 138 (crotchets)
b.p.m. (slightly slower than the original)

Hammer-on optional
I only tabbed it differently in the main tab because Mike Einziger plays
it like that in the unplugged video, and because I play it like that.
LYRICS: (Apart from improv murmuring)
Pardon me while I burst.
A decade ago, I never thought I would be
A twenty three on the verge of spontaneous combustion - woe is me
But I guess that it comes with the territory.
An ominous landscape of never-ending calamity.
I need you to hear, I need you to see
That I have had all I can take
And exploding seems like a definite possibility
To me.
So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world, and its people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me. I'll never be the same.
Not two days ago, I was having a look in a book
And I saw a picture of a guy fried up above his knee
I said "I can relate"
Cause lately I've been thinking of combustication as a welcomed vacation from
The burdens of the planet earth, like gravity, hypocrisy,
And the perils of being in 3D ...
But thinking so much differently.
Pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world, and it's people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me. I'll never be the same.
Never be the same...yeah.
Pardon me while I burst into flames.
Pardon me, pardon me, pardon me.
So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world, and it's people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me. I'll never be the same.
Never be the same. Yeah.
