Song: Secrets Don't Make Friends
Album: Dear Diary, My Teenage Angst has a Bodycount (Epitaph Records)
Year: 2004
Tabbed by El Doof
el_doof@hotmail.com

*This is a version of this song that I have created for one guitar, because I see it as
fun challenge to see how much can be done at once. Obviously there are parts which can't
played together (if you can, you're a freak and will declare you my god) like the first 
of the verses and the outro, but the rest is reasonably easy. I'd recommend just
the parts that you find most relevant. Most of all, just enjoy yourself!

Time Signature - 3
                 4
Tuning - Drop D (E string tuned down a step)

*I didn't notice this part until I was writing this tab and listening to the song, so it
not be 100% correct. But it sounds pretty close. And also, this is where I had to leave
other guitar out. If you'd rather play that, do as follows.

(1)
This place is a bloodbath,
And we won't be taken alive.
We stand alone,
Under fictitious skies.

(2)
You were my compass,
Leading me to nowhere fast.
Promises were lonely roads,
I followed you down like a map.

You were always my enemy and carefully crafted my demise,
You were always my enemy and carefully crafted my demise.
Our hearts beat strong under fictitious skies,
You were always my enemy, you suck the life out of me.

*Out of personal preference, I like to leave the higher octave out of the powerchords in
part, otherwise it doesn't sound quite right. But it's up to you in the end.

*Just a note for when you hammer on from A to E# (A|-0h8-|), there's no need to pick the
if you allow it to keep ringing after the pull-off beforehand. Also, in the recording,
guitars take it in turn to play the riff four times before playing in unison. I just put 
together.

F*ck you!
Secrets don't make friends!
Secrets don't make friends!
Secrets don't make friends!
Secrets don't make...

*Now I warn you, this bit is frickin hard to get right. But it is possible, I can do it
I've been playing 3 years, and I was figuring it out on the spot as I was writing the tab.

Your words are deadly weapons (Secrets don't make friends),
Killing me, destroying me,
Your words are deadly weapons (Secrets don't make friends),
Scatter my brains across the wall!

*In the original recording, Guitar 1 (Travis) plays the E# chord 6 times, the same as in
1. So there's the other option if you prefer that.

Secrets don't (Secrets don't make friends) make friends!
(Secrets don't make friends)
Secrets don't (Secrets don't make friends) make friends!
