Faith No More - Surprise Youre Dead tab

Artist: Faith No More
Song: Surprise! You're Dead!

Standard tuning, 12/8 and 4/4 (I think!) time.

Most of this was written by some other dude, I've just elaborated and added a few parts 
you might find easier.
Listen carefully to the song, and start off really slow. The rhythm is counter-intuitive 
once you get it right you'll love it.
Play loud and with big distortion :)

12/8

Lyrics - try to keep up :D

Surprise! You're dead!!
Ha ha! Open your eyes
See the world as it used to be when you used to be in it
When you were alive and when you were in love
And when I took it from you!
It's not over yet
You don't remember?
I won't let you forget
The hatred I bestowed
Upon your neck with a fatal blow
From my teeth and my tongue
I've drank and swallowed, but it's just begun
Now you are mine
I'll keep killing you until the end of time
Surprise! you're dead!
Guess what?
It never ends...
The pain, the torment and torture, profanity
Nausea, suffering, perversion, calamity
You can't get away
