Mr Bungle - Vanity Fair tab

    _______________
   / Mr. Bungle   /  This lovely crazy song has its unique groove and chords,
  / Vanity Fair  /  and I simply had to figure out what's it all about. I still
 / California   /  think I've yet to find out...

I also have the tricky Bridge and Breakdown parts typed into guitar pro if
anyone should be interested. It's much easier to learn it from guitar pro in
any case. The Breakdown part especially makes a lot more sense there.

 Here the keyboard does a random slide down the keys. The 5-stringed bass slides
 down from that C# on the 4th fret leading to the following C#-chord.

 This break part the vocal sings "Cut it, Cut it, Cut, Cut, Cut" on all of
 X's marking, which are the 'opposite' of the bass' and drums' markings.

 Final Verse:
*C major
||: C | Am | A#m/C# | G :|| repeat till fade out



You're not human
You're a miracle
A preacher with an animal's face
In your sexy neon smokescreen
Lie the supersalesmen of vanity

Even your shadow worships you
In your jungle solitude
With the orgies of the sacrament
And the seal of flagellants
You know, God saves those who save their skin
From the bondage that we're in

I'm elated
I could cut you
And remove the sheath of your ignorance
Bless the eunuch
And the Skoptsy
Will you hurt me now and make a million?
Say cheese, baby
We all love you
It's a cheap world and you don't exist

Slit the fabric of the right now
Spread your legs and wear the crown
Tell me how long, lord, how long?
Till I get my beauty sleep?

Now the hourglass is empty
Moment of my de-sexing
Cut it
Cut it
Cut
Cut
Cut
Cut this cancer from my soul

Now I've made it
I'm finally naked
I'm finally naked
Yeah, I made it
I'm rarely naked
