Date: Fri, 16 Jan 1998 23:06:43 -0500 (EST)
From: wbknox@unity.ncsu.edu
Subject: CRD: unity.crd by Telegraph

Song: Unity
Band: Telegraph
Album: 10 Songs and More (1997)
Written and performed originally by OPERATION IVY
Transcribed by Luke Knox (lukeknox@iname.com)

This is a cover of one of my favorite songs of all time, and it's pretty
much the same, except for some different lyrics, and the fact that it's
played one step higher than OpIvy played it:

Chords:
Bb - Eb - Fii - Eb

These are played both as barre chords:
E--------------------|
B--------------------|
G-------8---10---8---|
D---8---8---10---8---|
A---8---6----8---6---|
E---6----------------|
    Bb  Eb  Fii  Eb

And on the high strings for the ska parts:
    Bb  Eb  Fii  Eb
E---6---6----8---6---|
B---6---8---10---8---|
G---7---8---10---8---|
D---8---8---10---8---|
A--------------------|
E--------------------|

Listen to TSAM to pick up the rhythym, it's real easy.

Lyrics: (the added part is my own interpretation of what Jeff is singing)
There's a war going down between my brothers tonight. I don't want no war
going down, going down tonight.
Stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it, yeah stop
the fighting, stop the fighting, stop the fighting, stop the fighting,
stop the fighting, yeah.
Civilization? Ha! I call it as I see it. I call this bullshit, you know I
still cannot believe it. Our evolution now has gone the way of hate. A
world evolved, resolved into it's stupid fate.
(*Added part) Everyone has time for the time of living. All can see our
differences condemned but not forgiven. We are all guilty, we are all the
same. We are all guilty, we are all the same.
All so different, yeah, I say we're all the same. All caught, you know,
in this division game. Self destruction fast impending like a bullet. No
one can stop it, once it's fired no one can control it.
(Repeat added part)
A final word, wait, it's not a call to action. This ain't no sect, we
ain't no fuckin' faction. Unity, Unity, Unity you've heard it all before.
This time it's not exclusive, we wanna stop the war.
Stop the war, stop the fighting, stop the fighting, stop the fighting,
stop the fighting, stop the fighting, yeah.
Ain't nothing wrong, with another unity song.
Ain't nothing wrong, with another unity song.
Ain't nothing wrong, ain't nothing wrong, ain't nothing wrong, ain't
nothing wrong with another unity song.
Unity, as one stand together. Unity, evolution's gotta come.
Unity, as one stand together. Unity, evolution's gotta come.
Unity, as one stand together. Unity, evolution's gotta come.
Unity, as one stand together. Unity, evolution's gotta come right now!

That's it! Not too tough, but it's a great song, written by a great band,
and performed here by another great band, Telegraph. Hey, please e-mail
me with questions, requests,
or to talk Telegraph stuff.
Thanx
Luke
