This is tabbed by ear but it and the lyrics are pretty close. I had a hard
time tabbing this

Armatage Shanks (aka "Claustrophobic Mind")
Green Day

With some additional research, I uncovered this.  Here are the real lyrics to
the song I thought was
called "Claustrophobic Mind".  It's real title is "Armatage Shanks" and I
guess it was performed at
the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards.  Sorry about the goof up.  -Adam


Stranded
Lost inside myself
I always have been my own closest enemy
Well I'm branded
Maladjusted
Never trusted anyone out of myself

Why am I a sensation
Being a pesimist
I'm a loner in a claustrophobic mind

Erected
Feel rejected
I'm prepared to silence all 3 in a year
Well I'm branded
Maladjusted
Never trusted anyone out of myself

I must insist
On being a pesimist
I'm a loner in a claustrophobic mind

Whoa oh, whoa oh

Branded
Lost inside myself
I always have been my own closest enemy
Well I'm branded
Maladjusted
Never trusted anyone out of myself

Why am I a sensation
Being a pesimist
I'm a loner in a claustrophobic mind
Well I'm taking pressure for other pessimists
I'm a loner in a claustrophobic mind

Claustrophobic Mind-  GREEN DAY
tabbed by Adam Peiken 

Here's a tab for only the truest of Green Day fans.  This song is only played
at concerts,
and as of August '95, I have never seen it in release (even on imports).  With
some luck,
this song will show up on Green Day's new album, along with "Geek Stink Love",
another great rarity.  The lyrics (and the title) are guesses.

INTRO:

(downstroke 8'th notes)                 (into verse, fast succession)
Eb--------------------------------   Eb-C#-C-Bb

VERSE:

G#       C#
Stranded,
G#                      C#
Lost inside myself.
             F         C#                     Eb
I always had my emotions in demand.
G#       C#
Tragic,
G#       C#
A rejection.
           F              C#                   Eb
I never trusted anyone besides myself.

CHORUS:

C#              G#                  Eb               G#
I must have said something to get in this mess,
         C#          G#                  Eb                              X2
I'm a loner in a claustrophobic mind.

BRIDGE:    X2 			
G#      F			
Yeah, yeah		
G#     F                     		
Yeah, yeah			
			
C#    Eb

There is another verse using the same chords.
The first verse is repeated again later in the song.
End on an Eb.  If you download this, take a minute
write me.  I'm curious how many people have
heard of this or know where to find it.  Thanks.
-Adam 

BTW-  My mail program doesn't always work right, and the spacing 
might be a bit off. Sorry.
