BRIDGE (2:19)
        Bm                        D
 So you keep a little secret down deep inside your dresser drawer
 Bm                                   D
 Dealing with the heat just leaves you down on the killing floor
    Bm                                   D
 No matter where you step you feel you're never out of danger
 C                            B7
  (?)                      go playin' some (?)  I hear that too
 you got

VERSE 3 (2:35)
 down down down memories are hurtful (murder...)
 Everywhere you look life ain't got no soul (oh yeah)

CHORUS 3 (2:55)
 That apartment you live in feels like it's just a place to hide
 When you're walking down the street you won't meet no one eye to eye
         Em                              D
 Now the cops will point at you as just another homicide
         G                      B
 I could tell you was just frustrated from livin with
 N.C
 Murder Incorporated

 Em  D  G  A       Em    D   G  A ...
 Murder     Incorporated
 Murder Incorporated            everywhere you look now
 Murder Incorporated            etc.

 (repeat until fade)

 'Murder Inc.'was recorded in the BitUSA sessions 1982-1984
 and was originally planned to be the title track of the
 album in making. However, it still remains officially unreleased.
 Luckily bootleg versions circulate widely among fans :-)

The lyrics at the end of the bridge are "so the comfort that you keep is gold-plated, snub-nosed thirty-two"
