Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I can feel the animal inside
And my resolve is weakening
Pounding a the doors of my mind
It's nearly overpowering
I cannot begin to describe
The hunger that I feel again
Run, if you intend to survive
For the beast is coming to life

[Pre-Chorus]
Taking form in the glimmer of this tainted moonlight
Death approaches...on this night

[Chorus]
For the animal's soul is mine
We will be completed right before your eyes
I have no control this time
And now, we both shall dine in Hell tonight

[Verse 2]
I can hear it calling again
The primal need is filling me
Changes are about to begin
ANd now my blood is boiling
I can see the fear in your eyes
But you can't bring yourself to scream
Time to shed the mortal disguise
For the beast is coming to life

[Pre-Chorus]
Taking form in the glimmer of this tainted moonlight
Death approaches...on this night

[Chorus]
For the animal's soul is mine
We will be completed right before your eyes
I have no control this time
And now, we both shall dine in Hell tonight

[Solo]

[Bridge]
We begin the hunt and I
Feel the power course as the creatures take flight
For the kill is close and I...
Will be satisfied
For the smell of fear tonight
Wakes an ancient lust that will not be denied...
You're mine!

[Chorus]
For the animal's soul is mine
We will be completed right before your eyes
I have no control this time
And now, we both shall dine in Hell tonight
For the animal's soul is mine
And the world around will never hear your cries
An unholy crime...
And now, we both shall dine in Hell tonight


Enjoy, disturbed ones!

thats a great tab! i think i found two really tiny mistakes though i could be wrong.

i think this part should be

Solo (4/4)
D#|----22^24^22-15-17^18-17p15----|
A#|-17------------------------17/-|
F#|-------------------------------|
C#|-------------------------------|
G#|-------------------------------|
D#|-------------------------------|

and the first line of the chorus should end on the third fret of the fourth string rather than the fifth fret

The solo may be right - my guitar only has 21 frets, so I just got as close as I could. And you're also right about the chorus - that was just a minor oversight on my part. I'll fix that soon. Thanks for the input.
