--Transcriber's Notes--

I have spent the past 6 months on these songs trying to
get them as perfect as possible.  If you think further
corrections are needed, have the updated solos, or a
better version of this song please mail me at ArchEnemies
@aol.com.  I plan on tabbing this entire album, I have
been hard at work making my previous 'FSSD' tabs better.
Enjoy!

(**)   - see comment(s)
(^)    - pause; stacatto

--'INTO THE PIT' LYRICS-- (Skolnick, Peterson, Billy) Deep in the pit and lying alone Where death has reared itself a throne We're all the good, the bad The worst and the best And where they land is their eternal rest Foul plays of passion At twilight's dim In joy of woe, of good and sin Winds of storm and fates overcast Darkly my presence Is now your past Join the insanity Or die as you fall Into the pit! The mass production And the killing of all Into the pit! The future screams for help Are fading away Into the pit! The world tomorrow Will it die for today? Into the pit! So in the sad, silent watches of night The lonely pathway envisions my sight Echoes of laughter And boundless cries Son here I wander under infinite skies Join the insanity Or die as you fall Into the pit! The mass production And the killing of all Into the pit! The future screams for help Are fading away Into the pit! The world tomorrow Will it die for today? Into the pit!
