Lipstick traces(2003)
Manic Street Preachers

All tablature by Ieuan Jones (copyright)

I have no idea why this isn't tabbed...
it's a quality song, easily good enough to be on
one of their other studio albums, but hey, here we go.

Chords:

G = (320003)
D = (x00232)
F# = (244xxx)
B = (x244xx)
A = (x02220)
C = (x32010)



Introduction:

 G
 D F# B A
 G A G A

Note: the first G in the intro only is singularly strummed 4 times!


Intro riff:

e|-----------------------------|
B|-------12\8--10/15\10--------|
G|-----------------------------|   x2
D|--3/5------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

This is also repeated at the end of every verse,
and just before the third verse begins after the chorus.

Verse:

D                         F#
 Cut your hair in front of business men
B                 A               G   A   G   A
 Kill yourself and censor health


D                   F#
 Destroy words and ignore their truth
B                   A             G   A   G   A
 Wanna die and have never worked




Chorus:

D
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
C
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
G                                        A
I feel like falling, I feel like falling


Bridge:

D C G A
D F# B A
G A G A


During the bridge there is a part played by
the second guitar quite faintly in the background,
which goes as follows:

    D...
e|----10--10-----------------|
B|------10---10--10-10-10----|
G|--7---------7---7--7--7----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

    C...
e|----10--10-----------------|
B|------10---10--10-10-10----|
G|--7---------7---7--7--7----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

    G...
e|----10--10-----------------|
B|------10---10--10-10-10----|
G|--7---------7---7--7--7----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

    A...
e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|--6---------5b6-6p5-6p5-3h5---|
D|----7p5-7p5-------------------|
A|------------------------------|
E|------------------------------|



Verse:

D                F#
 I can't feel no need to care
B                     A               G  A  G  A
 Narcotic of ambition poisoned my air

D                  F#
 Wearing hate like they wear money
B                    A                    G  A  G  A
 Sucking down vodka, spitting out Perrier




Chorus:

D
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
C
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
G                                        A
I feel like falling, I feel like falling

(In Hate!)



Bridge:

D C G A

and this is repeated once again faintly in the background:

    D...
e|----10--10-----------------|
B|------10---10--10-10-10----|
G|--7---------7---7--7--7----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

    C...
e|----10--10-----------------|
B|------10---10--10-10-10----|
G|--7---------7---7--7--7----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

    G...
e|----10--10-----------------|
B|------10---10--10-10-10----|
G|--7---------7---7--7--7----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

    A...
e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|--6---------5b6-6p5-6p5-3h5---|
D|----7p5-7p5-------------------|
A|------------------------------|
E|------------------------------|



Then is this part, which is very straight-forward.


D        A       G
 Oh, the road is beautiful
D         A         G
 You live stoned in obedience
D
 Your vanity kills people
            A             G
 Paint your ego in blood
D        A       G
 Oh, the road is beautiful


then, just before the next set of lyrics start, are these chords:

C G C G (each only strummed once)



C                                G
 The wall is a reason for you to believe
C                                    G
 There is too many numbers for us to sleep
C                                G
 The wall is a reason for you to believe


C
BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY NUMBERS, TOO MANY NUMBERS!



For that part above, the lead guitar plays this 3 times:

e|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|--7-5-5h7-5-7b8r7-5-7-5--------|
D|------------------------8-7----|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

but then for the 'too many numbers...' lyric, the riff is only played as:

e|---------------------------|
B|---------------------------|
G|--7-5-5h7-5-7b8r7-5-7-5----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|


Now for the solo bit!

The rhythm plays these chords:

D A G (x2)

And for the lead:

e|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|--10b11-11--b14r12-11---------------|
D|----------------------10h11-11/19---|
A|------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|

  ---------------------------------------------|
  ---10h12-15p12-15h17-15-17b19-17-15-15b17r15-|
  ---------------------------------------------|
  ---------------------------------------------|
  ---------------------------------------------|
  ---------------------------------------------|

  ----------------------------------|
  ----------------------------------|
  --10b11-11--b14r12-11-------------|
  ----------------------10h11-11----|
  ----------------------------------|
  ----------------------------------|

  ----------------------------------|
  ----------------------------------|
  ----------------------------------|
  -------------12-------------12----|
  --14p12 12h14---12p9-12p9-12------|
  ----------------------------------|


then when the solo is finished, this part is repeated:


D        A       G
 Oh, the road is beautiful
D         A         G
 You live stoned in obedience
D
 Your vanity kills people
            A             G
 Paint your ego in blood


then finally,

D        A
 Oh, the road is
G
 B E A U T I F U L

 B E A U T I F U L
          G
 Beautiful


And that concludes the song.
I believe this is pretty accurate,
i hope this is useful to you, and if anyone has any improvements
that could be made, just say so in the comments.

18 years today, Richey Edwards,
the greatest lyricist to live,
yet so misunderstood.

Forever missed. 1/2/95
