Monkey Wrench
The Colour And The Shape
Tabbed by: Bal Sandher

This tab is defenitely correct, you just have to work on the timing.
I've added all the lyrics and fills as well. This is fully transcribed
for two guitars.

Verse 1:
What have we done with innocence?
It disappeared with time it never made much sense.
Adolescent Resident
Wasting Another night on planning my revenge

All this time to make amends
What do you do when all your enemies are friends?
Now and then i’ll try to bend
Under pressure, winding up snapping in the end

One last thing before I quit, 
I never wanted anymore that I could fit into my head,
I still remember every single
Word you said and all that shit that 
Somehow came along with it
Still there’s one thing that comforts me 
Since I was always caged and now i’m Freeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!
