Hey fellow Homestuck trash and trashetts! This is the song "Ugly Story" written and 
composed by Phemiec. There are only two other renditions of this on UG but those seem too difficult. 
Like the tuning and the positions on the fret board. I just thought I could make something a bit easier. 
Well, put it in a tab at least for those of you who still like this song and want to play it. 
It is very simple. Not much variation. No variation actually. But I think it still has the gist of the song
and sounds somewhat like the song. Your finger placement would be the placement of chords. So the first chord
would be D,C,Em, then Am. That is the finger placement for when you start picking. 
Hope you like it! :o) 

You play this twice for the intro then just play this throughout the song

       D            C            Em            Am


D                                   C
I am a prince and I live in a ship and I aim my rifle and I shoot from the hip
Em                          Am
And I have a friend I pity quite a bit
     D                                          C
She said, “Grab your gun, let's have some fun, share with me your perigees 
   Em                     Am
I have responsibilities, I cannot run!”
   D                         C
“I do not wish the death of any living thing, 
              Em                           Am
I might be a killer but one day I shall be queen 
    D                             C
and put an end to slaughter, but until then I'm keen 
     Em                                Am
on staking claim to land and sea and everyfin between.”

[Chorus 1]

   D                              C
I played a game with eleven fools who told me not to break the rules
     Em                             Am
But when have angels ever helped me yet?
     D                    C
And magic isn't real and anyway it doesn't matter 
Em                                                        Am
'Cause no matter what I conjure it could not help be me deflect

[Verse 1]
      D                     C
The angry death of every hopeful thought 
                    Em                Am
That I might be a lover or a fighter that I’m not 
     D                      C
In someone's spider web or net I could be caught 
              Em           Am
But I'm too bitter, better off alone, guess I forgot
[Bridge 1]
D                               C
So what? Do you want me to say sorry?
Em                            Am
Should I apologize, when you ignore me?
          D                         C
I didn't ask to be right or to be lonely
           Em                  Am
Or to be hatched into an ugly story

[Chorus 2]

         D                            C
I am a prince and I had a pair of princesses in two sharp squares
     Em                                Am
But then I guess I bored them both to death
    D                             C
And now I think my calling is to break apart and fall to pieces
Em                              Am
Better yet invent a brand new method of ascension

[Verse 2]

       D                 C
I'm impressed, you've managed to survive 
                       Em                          Am
But rest assured we'd all be better off dead than alive 
        D                                C
'Cause when they get a hold of us we'll all be batter fried 
           Em                                 Am
And I'm surprised that nobody's considered switching sides

[Chorus 3]

    D                            C
So here I am, respectfully and royally destroying 
      Em                                 Am
Any chance of getting back on your good gills
       D                                C
And I don't want to be hurtful but if yellows the new purple 
             Em                          Am
Well then bleeding's the new breathing, don't you think I will!

[Verse 3]
   D                         C
I used to wish the death of every living thing 
   Em                              Am
I might be your killer but you'd never be my queen 
D                            C
So put away your laughter, pack up your hopes and dreams 
Em                                                      Am
I'm done with black back-handing and red pandering, it seems


D                                      C
That I am just pathetic, I won't be overlooked 
                         Em                          Am
I'm past the point of fishing to get back upon your hook 
D                                  C
I've made a manifesto, I've been bested by a crook, but never more! 
Em                                  Am
I'm planning on reclaiming what he took...
    D                            C
So what? do you want me to say sorry?
Em                             Am
Should I apologize, when you ignore me?
   D                                C
I didn't ask to be right or to be lonely
           Em                  Am
Or to be hatched into an ugly story
Em                          Am
To be hatched into an ugly story
 D                                C           Em        Am
Oh my, this pantomime is getting gory

(play the whole pattern once)
D                              C             Em          Am
I am a prince and I live in a ship
D                             C             Em          Am
I am a prince and I live in a ship

(play the pattern two more times then end with a down strum on D)

For the Hook, You could pull the strings all at once, such as for the bridge/outro or just pick them loud and 
fast. Whichever works for you.

doesn't sound remotely like the song, not by any stretch. this person needs to make some major changes to the tab if they want it to sound like the song its meant to be.

Well I tried finding and making a tab that is easy to play, but does sound somewhat like the song... When I play it, it does have the gist of the sound of the song...

You may want to rate the tab now too:
