Lyrics:
"Feel like a no-tell motel painting 
Out of place or ignored 
It’s all medals & trophys, trophys & medals 
& all before the race has been run 

Oh take of your mask ( take it off now baby ) 
Is it to much to ask? ( to much to ask ) 
Go on und give it a try or ( give it up now ) 
Kiss your ass goodbye ( goodbye )" 




Play Intro again

Verse 2 - play similarly to Verse 1 (1:47-2:23)

"Autobiographical anonymous ( anonymous ) 
A cotillion of friction on my jurisdiction 
It’s a lovely disguise with the wandering eyes (wandering eyes ) 
I get high, now you’ve got something to look up to" 





Play Chorus again (4x through)

Lyrics:
"Troubles a mangy stray dog 
Play with it once, then it follows you home 
It’s all “have not, have none, hey can I have some?” 
Until I’ve had enough, yet I’ve had none 

Oh take of your mask ( rip it off now baby ) 
Lose it into the trash ( throw all it away ) 
Go on and give it a try or ( come on now baby ) 
Kiss your ass goodbye"

Because it's such a long song and I can't get a guitar to stay in that tuning (which is the right tuning by the way, thank goodness someone noticed) I can't really tell whether it's all accurate but it's damn good and you obviously spent a lot of time on this. All the licks and fills are pretty much bang on though so it's definately 4 or 5 stars.

yeah this tuning is ridiculously low...i think heavyer gauge strings will help with the tuning issue

I have written and played in drop A here and there over the years and the best way of ensuring the tension and tuning remains constant is to restring with a set that has a .56 at the low E position. If you have a “spare” guitar that you want to dedicate to the tuning then I recommend taking it to be professionally set up to avoid problems later. Surprisingly this works well with a Tele-style guitar I have.
