From: wfpol@cs.ruu.nl (Wilbert Pol)


The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
    1. eight notes         (1 slash)   or
    2. sixteenth notes     (2 slashes) or
    3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
\ - slide down
\(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo  (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

||--  --||
||-o  o-||  - a repeat
||-o  o-||
||--  --||

|  X  |
|-----|  - X bar rest
|-----|
|     |

|-----|
|  %  |  - repeat previous bar

Lyrics :
 1. Thunder and lightning. The gods take revenge
    Senseless destruction
    Victims of fury are cowardly now
    Running for safety
    Stabbing the harlot to pay for her sins
    Leaving the virgin
    Suicide running as if it were free
    Ripping and tearing

 Pre-chorus :
    Oh! Through the mist and the madness
    We're trying to get the message to you

 Chorus :
    Metal militia !
    Metal militia !
    Metal militia !

 2. Chained and shadowed to be left behind
    Nine and one thousand
    Metal militia for your sacrifice
    Iron-clad soldiers
    Join or be conquered, the low of the land
    What will befall you ?
    The metallization of your inner soul
    Twisting and turning

 Pre-chorus

 Chorus
    Metal militia !

 3. We are one as we all are the same
    Fighting for one cause
    Leather and metal are our uniforms
    Protecting what we are
    Joining together to take on the world
    With our heavy metal
    Spreading the message to everyone here
    Come let yourself go

 Pre-chorus

 Chorus :
     Metal militia !  (repeat & fade)
