OK me again. After i posted the album tab for Rated R I got a few emails
asking for tabs to the first album. So here they are.
I havent writen any of them, I'm just posting them. But they are very
accurate as far as I can tell.
I cant remember where I got these to give the proper credit, but just let
me know if they are yours and I'll correct the situation.

[Main riff/Lyrics]
Too late to think or filter anymore
A bitter pill to swallow
Maybe you're in a blanket haze of ephedrine
I'm wonderin where the hell you been
So come on and right this wrong the rope

You got it all right
You got a feeling
I'd rather open up my wrist, let it go
You got it all right
You got a feeling
Cause devils and ropes around your neck
Cursing them all
And you can't hear it
Can't hear it

[Main riff/lyrics]
Ain't got a mind to deal with anymore
Sabatuer, infiltrator, and maybe more
If you're not blind and deaf, how can we pollute your head?
So come on and right this wrong the rope
And I got it all right
I got a feeling
You'd rather open up your wrist, let it go
I got it all right, yeah
I got a feeling
Cause devils and ropes around my neck can't even know
Cause they can't hear it

[Main riff/lyrics]
Can't hear it

"And a tip if your trying to tab something by queens or Kyuss,
theyre always tuned two whole steps down to C."
