			    Skyscraper - Bad Religion
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:   Justin Le Tourneau

*If there's any problems reading the tab, copy it into Notepad with "Courier New, Size 9".

Verse:

G# / A
Come let us make bricks
    e		B / C
and burn them hard
C#	      A
We'll build a city
       e	     B
with a tower for the world
    e		    B
and climb so we can reach
  C#		A
anything we may propose
e   B        A
(anything at all)


Chorus:

(Pick Slide)
C#	     B
Build me up, Tear me down
       A	 /B e
like a skyscraper
e D C#		  A
Build me up, then tear down
      G#       A
These joining walls
   e          B        A
So they can't climb at all

Verse 2:
I know why you tore it down that day
You throught, if you got caught
we'd all go away
Like a spoiled little baby
who can't come out to play
You had your revenge

Chorus:
Build me up, tears me down
like a skyscraper
Build me up, then tear down
these joining walls
   e          B        A     /B  e
So they can't climb at all

***- For this part (not really sure if it has a name) he takes his left
and right index fingers in succession and slides up on the fret board
from different places. If you're unfamiliar with what I'm referring to,
check out Bad Religion's "Faith Alone" at about 2:09-13.

e
Well madness reins, and paradise drown
B
When babble's walls came crashing down
C#
Now the echo's roar, for the story lived
	 A		    /B  e     B   C#		/G#
That was hardly understood, and never any good.....


Chorus:
Build me up, tears me down
like a skyscraper
Build me up, then tear down
these joining walls
So they can't climb at all
