Tabbed By: Joe@Disturbed16

KEY: h- Hammer On.
     X- Palm Mute.
     R- Rub The String On And Off 
( Fuzz does this at the start on his bass ) - its kindof like hes using a turn

P.S if u wanna see how he does it, go to Kazzaa and download Down With the
Sickness Live ( at the start David should have a strait jacket on with a hannible
mask ).

Tuning: Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

GREAT SONG!


At the beginning of the song before David goes Oh Ah Ah Ah Ah Fuzz plays this
cool riff by sliding his palm on the string of his guitar.

David says: Can u fell that?

LYRICS:

VERSE:

drowning deep in my sea of loathing
broken your servant i kneel
(will you give in to me)
it seems what's left of my human side is slowly changing in me
(will you give in to me)
looking at my own reflection
when suddenly it changes
violently it changes
there is no turning back now
you've woken up the demon in me

CHORUS:

get up, come on get down with the sickness
open up your hate and let it flow in to me
get up, come on get down with the sickness
you mother get up, come on get down with the sickness
you f*%ker get up, come on get down with the sickness
madness is the gift that has been given to me

VERSE 2:

i can see inside you the sickness is rising
don't try to deny what you feel
(will you give in to me)
it seems that all that was good has died
and is decaying me
(will you give in to me)
it seems you're having some trouble
in dealing with these changes
living with these changes
the world is a scary place
now that you've woken  up the demon in me

OUTRO:

madness has now come over me

David Draiman - Vocals.

I think the tuning should be in drop D so it is (from low to high) DADGBE. Also opening rift I think should be
E|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------|
D|--1-4-1-2-1---1-4-2-1---1-4-1-1|
A|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
and so that will change this part to
E|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------|
D|--1-4-1-2-1---1-4-2-1---1-4-1-1|
A|--1-4-1-2-1---1-4-2-1---1-4-1-1|
D|--1-4-1-2-1---1-4-2-1---1-4-1-1|

Otherwise this is a great tab.
