Chorus:


N.C.                       C
And when she lets me slip away


Em
She turns me on and


Am                  F
All my violence is gone


F             Am
Nothing is wrong


F                    Fm        C
I just slip away and now I am gone


Em                  Am
Nothing is wrong


F
She turns me on


Am      F            Fm        C
I just slip away and now I am gone




-Repeat half of intro, and opening solo guitar section for third verse, repeat full band 
section for fourth verse.


Electronic noise in background of verse three and four (tabbed for guitar):

e|-------------|                    e|-------------|
B|-------------|                    B|-------------|
G|--------1h2--|     moving to      G|------13h14--|
D|-------------|                    D|-------------|
A|-------------|                    A|-------------|
E|-------------|                    E|-------------|


-Repeat chorus.


Outro One (chords):


A
He's on, he's on, he's on it


C
He's on, he's on, he's on it                  x2


F
He's on, he's on, he's on it


G                      A#
He's on, he's on, he's on it


**Repeat this chord structure until the end if you're playing rhythm, if not:


Outro One (tab):


e|-------------------------------|
B|--10---------------------------|
G|-----9--7/9--------------------|         x8
D|--------------10--9--7---------|
A|------------------------5------|
E|-------------------------------|


Outro Two (tab):


e|---------------------------------|
B|--8/10---------------------------|
G|-------7/9- 7/9------------------|      repeat this until the end
D|-------5/7--5/7----10--9--7------|     (add flourish if needed)
A|-------------------8---7--5---5--|
E|------------------------------3--|



The song ends on A major, do whatever you'd like with that.


**If you wish you can continue to play Outro One until the end, but in my opinion once 
Damon finishes singing it sounds a bit weak, so I added the extra strings to back up the 
sound. It's really interchangeable.


-----------------------------------------------------------


Hope this works. If there are any mistakes (as this is my first tab), feel free to 
comment to suggest any changes. Happy playing girls and boys.
