WOW!
Ok here comes the hardest part of the song{next to the solo of course}
in this you have to run your finger across very lightly as you slide making a harmonic
slide.you can choose to do this with the top three strings or all of the strings
personally i just do it with the top three. It sounds more correct with the song.make
sure you hit each note. do get the [proper effect gallop with your pick once on each
note so as to play it twice and then slide up. this is moderalty fast.

VERSE
{Murray}
he walks thru the subway his eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you he lunges,prepare for attack

Verse2

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despite
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night.

I have no one, Im bound to destroy all this greed.
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me.

Verse 3
same as other verse

My faith in believing is stronger then life lines andties.
with the glimer of metal my moment is ready to strike.
Dath call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night.
Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light.
Chorus
I have found you and now there is no place to run.
Excitment shakes me, oh god help me what have i done.

verse4

he walks thru the subway his eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you he lunges,prepare for attack
Chorus
Scream for mercy he laughs as he watches you bleed.
Killer behind you, his blood thirst defies all his needs.

ending.
