Chorus (heavy distortion):

B5         A5                      G5   F#5  B5  F#5

B5            A5                     G5  F#5    B5    F#5
Tracking mud     while blood letting

G#5         F#5          E5    G#5              F#5          E5

G#5       F#5      E5           G#5           F#5             E5

Chorus 2: (heavy distortion):

B5        A5                G5   F#5  B5  F#5
Meanwhile     our little gem

B5          A5               G5     F#5     B5    F#5
Sleep with      sycophants   We've  been    so    proud

B5                A5                   G5    F#5   B5   F#5
But now and then     we're joining in  We've been  so   proud

B5            A5
Tracking mud      while blood letting

G5     F#5     B5    F#5
We've  been    so    proud

E5  F#5   G5    A5
