This is my first tab, so cut me some slack.

Artist: Rx Bandits
Song: Babylon
Standard Tuning

Ok, so this song is based around the E chord:

E-------
B---9---
G---9---
D---9---
A---7---
E-------

And he basically centers all his playing around that chord, so you can feel free
to play around that chord during the song, since he does too.

Since the solo in the song is kind of lame, I didn't bother tabbing it out. Instead,
there is an E Major scale that you can use to create your own solo from:

E----------------------------------------------------------------9--11--12---
B----------------------------------------------------9--10--12---------------
G----------------------------------------8--9--11----------------------------
D-------------------------------9--11----------------------------------------
A------------------9--11--12-------------------------------------------------
E-----9--11--12--------------------------------------------------------------

I'm sure that your solo will be better than the one in the song. It's easier and better
to improvise from this scale than to play the one in the song.

Now for the song:

Throughout the song, there are many string mutes that he inserts between each note/chord.
Since these mutes are so sporadic, I didn't include them. It's also pretty hard to have
good timing while playing this song because of those mutes.

Lyrics:

It's time to listen up all good people
And take a look around
I know that everything is looking normal
But something is unsound
It seems to me that we are constricted
By a force unfair
We can't do what we all want to
Or we'll wind up in jail

Babylon don't make the rules
Babylon don't make our rules
They tried to play us all for fools
Babylon don't make our rules

Alright, Alright

I'm feeling like our voices are unspoken
And our needs are unmet
Freedom is what we all want so
Freedom is what we will get
So put up all your hands together
And squeeze them real tight
Because if you're paying income tax
Then you're helping to build bombs
What do you have to say about that

Babylon don't make the rules
Babylon don't make our rules
They tried to play us all for fools
Babylon don't make our rules
