From: wfpol@cs.ruu.nl (Wilbert Pol)

The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
    1. eight notes         (1 slash)   or
    2. sixteenth notes     (2 slashes) or
    3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
\ - slide down
\(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo  (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

Lyrics :
 1. Sound is ripping through your ears
    The deaf'ning sound of metal nears
    Your body's waiting for his whips
    The taste of leather on your lips

 Chorus :
    Hear the cry of war
    Louder than before
    With his sword in hand
    To control the land
    Crushing metal strikes
    On this fright'ning night
    Fall on to your knees
    For the Phantom Lord

 2. Victim falling under chains
    You hear them crying dying pains
    Fists of terror breaking through
    Now there's noting you can do


 3. The leathered armies have prevailed
    The Phantom Lord has never failed
    Smoke it lifting from the ground
    The rising volume metal sound


    Fall to your knees
    And bow to the Phantom Lord
