This is my version of The Thing That Should Not Be.
It's all from memory, so some of it may be wrong.
There is a fill (Riff 9) near the end of the song which I can't remember
how it goes, so if someone could tab it, I'd really appreciate it.

To the first guy,
You shut up your cake hole I don't care if it's wrong because I live in a car and I think you're stupid. And you couldn't even be bothered to go register you fish. I don't like you also because you need a hairwash and it makes me angry and hungry
And I also like eggs but I don't like them. A bit like you mate.
And the second guy, I don't have a clue what the hell you're talking about, and neither does anyone.
Thankyou

This song is awesome,it has got a really cool, heavy atmosphere which the solo highlights. many people say this is the the worst song on the album, but its one of my favourites. what it lacks in speed and noise it makes up in atmosphre.
