- I think I have this bang on but it was quite time 
- consuming to do. The guitar parts change a lot through
- each verse, so I have noted all that below. If you
- listen to the song while following this tab you should
- have no problems (it's easy to play). I did it all by 
- ear, but it sounds correct. If anyone can find the 
- tab for the solos let me know!
-
- For questions, comments or any other inquiries you
- can e-mail me.

 Lyrics:
=-=-=-=-=
They don't know how old I am, they found armor in my belly 
From the 16th centry, conquistador I think 
They don't know how old I am, they found armor in my belly 

Passion out a machine reving tension 
Lashin' out at machine reving tension 
Rushin' by the machine reving tension 

Mo-rning broke out the back side of a truck stop 
It's the end of the line a real rainbow likening luck stop 
Well you could say I becam chronilogically fucked up 
Put ten bucks in just to get the tank topped off 

Then I found a place that's dark and it's rotted 
It's a cool sweet kinda place where the copters won't spot it 
And I destroyed the map I even thought I forgot it 
However every day I'm dumpin' the body 
It's better for us if you don't understand 
It's better for me if you don't understand 
Ya { Instra } 

Then I found a place that's dark and it's rotted 
It's a cool sweet kinda place where the copters can't spot it 
And I destroyed the map that I carefully dotted 
However every day I'm dumpin' the body 
I'd be better for us if you don't understand 
I'd be better for us if you don't understand 
I'd be better for me if you don't understand 
Let Me out ..... (X 7)
