   Song Title: Stacked Actors 
   Released: October 1999 
   Album- There is Nothing Left to Lose 
   Tabbed: 4-12-99 

   I didn't like this song when I first heard it, but it is one of those 
   that grows on you. After listening to it a few times it has now become 
   one of my favourites off the album, lyrically also. 

   Drop D Tuning 

   Intro/Chorus (riff 1) 
   3X

   D|-2-------------------------------------------------------- 
   A|-0-------------------------------------------------------- 
   D|---------------------------------------------------------- 
   (obviously using some effects pedal) 

   Oh mirror mirror, your'e coming in clear 
   I'm finally somewhere in between 
   I'm impressed what a beautiful chest 
   I never meant to make a big scene 
   Will you resign to the latest design 
   You look so messy when you dress up in dreams 
   One more for hire, a wonderful liar 
   I think its time we should all become clean

   D|---0-------------------0--0--0--------------------------- 
   the bastards all I want is the truth 


   Chorus (riff 1) 

   Hey Hey now, can you fake it 
   Can you make it look like we want 
   Hey Hey now, can you take it 
   And we cry when they all die blonde 

   Verse 2 (riff 2) 

   little solo before second verse (guitar 2): 
   e|--2h3-0-2h3-2-0------------------------------------------

   G|-------------------------0-2--------0-2h4-2b-2b---------- 
   D|--------------------------------------------------------- 
   A|--------------------------------------------------------- 
   D|--------------------------------------------------------- 

   God bless, what a sensitive mess 
   Yeah but things aren't always what they seem 
   Your teary eyes, your famous disguise 
   Never knowing who to believe 
   See through yeah, but what do you do 
   When you're just another ageing drag queen 

   Pre Chorus (riff 3) 

   Chorus 2 (riff 1) 

   Hey Hey now, can you fake it 
   Can you make it look like we want 
   Hey Hey now, can you take it 
   And we cry when they all die blonde 
   Stack dead actors. Stacked to the rafters 
   Line up all the bastards all I want is the truth 
   Stack dead actors. Stacked to the rafters 
   Line up all the bastards 
   And we cry when they all die blonde

i have one of those tab books too. yeah, it says drop a, but that's cause they're not gonna tell you to go out and buy an octave pedal. i have the foo fighters dvd from the one by one tour, and they played it on the a string, clearly with an octave pedal. and i saw them on their last tour and was close enough to see that the opening riff was once again played on the a string.
