   PM     p   p       p    PM-----|   \---3---/   \---3---/

play "next bit" again 4 times then into verses
the verses are all played solely in the 6th string in
the same rhythm as "next bit"

1 Bodies  fill  the  fields   I   see
2 Barking    of    machine    gun   fire         does
3 Life  planned  out  before  my  birth
E|0--0-0-0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0-|0--0-0-0--0--0--0-0-0-0-|

  hungry   heroes   end.
  nothing   to  me  now
  nothing  could  I  say.
E|3--3-3-3--3--3--3--3-3-3-3-|2--2-2-2--2--2--2-2-2-2-|

  No one   to   play   soldier   now,
  Sounding   of   the   clock   that   ticks       get
  Had   no   chance   to   see   myself
E|0--0-0-0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0-|0--0-0-0--0--0--0-0-0-0-|

  no one   to   pretend.
  used   to   it  somehow.
  moulded   day   by   day.
E|3--3-3-3--3--3--3--3-3-3-3-|7--7-7-7--7--7--7-7-7-7-|

the second half of each verse follows the same pattern

Running blind through killing fields,
bred to kill them all.
Victim of what said should be,
a servant till I fall

      Soldier       boy,                made   of    clay

then with rhythm fig 1
Back to the front. You will do what I say, when I say.
Back to the front. You will die when I say you must die.
Back to the front. You coward, you servant, you blind man.
(then some palm muted open E-string strumming)

then with rhythm figure 2:
Why...  am I dying?   Kill...  have no fear.
Lie...  live off lying.  Hell...  hell is here.

then a big solo mostly played over E5 with occaisionally a C5 and maybe a D5

then with rhythm figure 2 again:
Why...  am I dying?   Kill...  have no fear.
Lie...  live off lying.  Hell...  hell is here.
			 I was born for dying....

good tab but it only deserves three starz without the solo.

It's not all that bad, but it's confusing, and you didn't tab the whole song, so I rated it 3.
