                      HELLO CRUEL WORLD - Bad Religion
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Gary H.
E-mail: N/A (Private message me if necessary)

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Album: True North

I think there may be three guitars in this song. Two guitars play over each other
in the intro and verses, as seen in Figure 1. and Figure 2., and these two figures
are played while the solo is being played (I think). The solo is quite tricky
to decipher.
It is the best I can come up with for this tab! Anyway, this is how I play it.

N.B. I am unsure about the pinch harmonic in the solo; but it is what sounded closest
after playing around with it (it sounds quite like it if you pinch the harmonic
nearer the bridge).

Figure 1. and Figure 2. are played together through the intro and the verses. Play with 
very slight palm muting.

SOLO: (Figure 1. and Figure 2. played over this). A lot of this is played very fast so 
you need to listen very carefully to the record.

Lyrics:

I can't stop the way I feel,
But I can penetrate your religion with a nail.
You are mine and we are twine.
When we radiate in waves together, everything is fine.

Hello cruel world.
Do you know that you're killing me?
I don't mind,
But I could use a little sympathy.

I've been blind
As a fool can be.
My dear cruel world,
Do you ever think about me?

I can feel so alone with you right here.
And yet, I turn to you for comfort in my despair.
You are dust and I am bone.
And I will love your endless gaze of madness until I turn to stone.

Hello cruel world.
Do you know that you're killing me?
I don't mind,
But I could use a little sympathy.

I've been blind
As a fool can be.
My dear cruel world,
Now I know you are my everything.

Please forgive me.

Hello cruel world.
Do you know that you're killing me?
I don't mind,
But I could use a little sympathy.

I've been blind
As a fool can be.
My dear cruel world,
Now I've made a mess of everything.
