None of the tabs for this song are very good, so I'm gonna write an accurate tab...

Intro: (Bass)

G|--------------------------|.|
D|--------------------------|.|
A|--------------------------|.|
E|--0--0--0--0--0--8--8--8--|.|

Then the guitar comes in:

E|--------------------------|.|
B|--------------------------|.|
G|-----------------5--5--5--|.|
D|--2--2--2--2--2--5--5--5--|.|
A|--2--2--2--2--2--3--3--3--|.|
E|--0--0--0--0--0-----------|.|

The verse is just the bass playing the intro riff, with drums. However if you want to 
guitar it would be:

E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------5---|
D|--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2---5---|
A|--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2---3---|
E|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-------|
  Put your sincerity act out of loyalty defend every country wish away pain...

Bridge:

E|--------------|.|
B|--------------|.|
G|--3--4--5--4--|.|
D|--3--4--5--4--|.|
A|--1--2--3--2--|.|
E|--------------|.|
    All we have is...


Chorus (for the chorus I'm just gonna write it as chords as it will be much easier to 
*e5= High e5, E5= low E5.)


A5         A#5                   D5              e5*    f5
  Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can,

A5      A#5                D5           e5            E5
  Make enough of the world you go alone and sing your song...

Lyrics:

1. Put your sincerity act out of loyalty,
Defend every country wish away, PAIN!
Hand out lobotomies to save little families,
Surrealistic fantasy flamboyant HEY!

Bridge. All we have is restitution
Living out your date of fusion
If there's a hope please end it faster
Don't be guilty, massive RIOT!

Chorus. Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can,
Make enough of the world you go alone and sing your song.

2. Society of pessimists stricken to masters
Suffered as communist apocalyptic bastard,
Thinking he was god, putting me on this earth,
Feel a very privileged diplomat hey!

I swear on my life this tab is 100% accurate. If you think not, then email me with the

Portray sincerity
Act out of loyalty
Defend your free country
Wish away the pain
Hand out lobotomies
To save little families
Surrealistic fantasy
Bland, boring pain!

Holy now in restitution
Living out our date with Fusion
In our whole fleece shun in bastard
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough up the words as you go along, I sing then some

Sickening pessimist hypocrite master
Conservative Communist apocalyptic bastard
Thank you Dear God for putting me on this Earth
I feel very privileged in debt for my thirst!

Holy now in restitution
Living out our date with Fusion
In our whole fleece shun in bastard
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough up the words as you go along, I sing then some
