First the lyrics. I'll try to "pretty" it up when I have the time. - Chris) Lyrics: Steady repetition is a compulsion mutually reenforced. Now what does that mean? Is there a just contradiction? Nothing much. Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord, hesitate. Got to punch Right on target Twisting tongues Gotta stripe down his back all nine yards down her back Give me a couple, Don't give me a couple of pointers, Turn to lies and conversation fear Got to punch Right on target Twisting tongues Gotta stripe down his back all nine yards down her back Give me a couple, Don't give me a couple of pointers, Turn to lies and conversation fear What is my mind? What is my mind? Steady repetition is a compulsion mutually reenforced. Now what does that mean? Is there a just contradiction? Nothing much. Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, oh come on, hesitate, hesitate. Got to punch Right on target Twisting tongues Gotta stripe down his back all nine yards down her back Give me a couple, Don't give me a couple of pointers, Turn to lies and conversation fear Conversation fear. Conversation fear. Conversation fear. ------ From: Jonathan Blanks (joblanks@vt.edu) (in normal tuning) intro is of course strings and notes, but if you play an A chord it sounds good. Then after the intro before the song kicks in I think it is a B or B5. From what I can tell the verse is E then B (orB5) and the last line of the verse is E and the chorus goes B//A// and there may be a G in there somewhere but maybe it's just the bass playing a G. ----- From: domenico suppappola (dxsuppap@fcserv04.psf.ge.com) I'm not certain about the intro so here's my best shot: E:-2-3-5-3s2-2 that's the bassline....
