Titus Andronicus - Fear And Loathing In Mahwah Nj tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
             FEAR AND LOATHING IN MAHWAH, NJ - Titus Andronicus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard

This isn't 100% and it mainly only covers Patrick's guitar part, but there are
so few Titus Andronicus tabs out there I thought I'd give it a shot.

This song's in F, and Patrick plays it with a capo on  5, but the other guys just
play it in F without the capo. I'll write the chords relative, but for reference
if you want to play this open, "C" = F, "Am" = Dm, "F" = Bb, "G" = C.


CAPO ON 5
CHORDS RELATIVE

Intro riff:

Patrick mixes this with strumming, and it's inconsistent across recorded and live
versions as to which parts he strums and picks, but basically just strum around
the C chord and focus on picking out this melody:

C (with intro riff)
Why do you do the things you've done

and how dumb would you have to be
                                          Am
to do them again like I know you're going to?

C (with intro riff)
If you're the poet you say you are

and beauty's in everything you see,
                                                      Am
then how can love exist in a world run by people like you? 

        F                              C
Because when there's suffering, you're there.
     G                             C  G   C
From southern trees, you hang them in the air.
    F                       C                Am
The world screams out in agony and you don't care,
               F            Am          G                    C
but should the shit hit the fan, I just pray you will not be spared. 

Fuck you!

C

C
You took a heart with so much room for love 

and filled it with hatred and rage 
                                                          Am
until there was nothing left but for it to shrivel up and die.

C
People will tell you that if you don't

love your neighbor, then you don't love God, 
                                                       Am
but no god of mine would put light in such unrighteous eyes.

        F                         C
Now the way we hold each other so tight
           G                            C  G   C 
would look more like a noose if held up to the light
           F                    C            Am
because we betray each other in dreams every night.
          F              Am  G                 C 
Now let's never speak of it again, all right? 

C F C G (repeat to the end)

Keyboard/horn riff at end (can also be played on guitar):

    C             F             C              G
