Transcribed by Marc (blackpanther9118@aol.com)

Tuning: C# F# B# E# (half step down)
p = pulloff
h = hammeron

The song starts out with just some guitar work (with some hi—hats underneath) after
that, Hell breaks loose and DD plays this

Riff A (Play twice):

E# |————————————————|————————————————|————————————————|————————————————||
B# |————————————————|————————————————|————————————————|————————————————||
F# |————————————————|————————————————|————————————————|————————————————||
C# |0———3—0—6———5—6—|0———3—0—6—6—5—6—|0———3—0—6———5—6—|3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—||

The following riff (which actually starts out with the bass break) contains a lot of
hammerons which are tricky to play. But practice makes perfect :)

Riff B (Play 4 times):

E# |————————————————|————————————————||
B# |————————————————|————————————————||
F# |————————————————|————————————————||
C# |3h4p3h4p3h4p3———|——3——h4p3h4p3———||

The verses are compiled of Riff C (see below) 4 times, and Riff B 4 times. Then play

Riff C:

E# |————————————————|————————————————||
B# |————————————————|————————————————||
F# |————7———————7———|————7———————————||
C# |0—0———0—0—0———0—|0—0———0—0—3—5—3—||

(1st verse)
Took a little time, before we're done to love me
Took a little more than I ever did before
Took your bad intentions
Took all your excite
And if I didn't mention
Took my inhuman rights
It's a heavy—weight title bout
The more I live the more I find out

(I dont know how to word this part...sorry)
For the chorus...return to Riff A again, play it 4 times, with the only exception that
the last time you play it dont play the ||3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—|| but go to "Fill 1"

Fill 1:

E# |————————————————|————————————————|————————————————|————————————————||
B# |————————————————|————————————————|————————————————|————————————————||
F# |————————————————|————————————————|————————————————|————————————————||
C# |—3—3—————3—3————|3—3—————3—3—————|3—3—————3—3—————|3———————————————||

(Chorus)
Damned, for if I love me
Damned, for if I care
Damned, for all the make you feel betters
As the damned scream this ain't fair
Damned, for if I love me
Damned, for if I care
Damned, for all the make you feel betters
As the damned scream this ain't fair

Then the second verse starts, just repeat the verse sequence again (Riff C 4 times, Riff
B 4 times, then Riff C. The Chorus after that is actually just Riff A 4 times, so no Fill
1 this time! :)

(2nd verse)
Had a little time before I went and fucked me
Had a little trouble, getting up off the floor
Had you're I'm not like that
Had a hand up in my face
Head bobbing like a wet rat
No love for the human race
The more fuel, the farther I go
The more I live the more I...
No—no—no

(Chorus)
Damned, for if I love me
Damned, for if I care
Damned, for all the make you feel betters
As the damned scream this ain't fair
Damned, for if I love me
Damned, for if I care
Damned, for all the make you feel betters
As the damned scream this ain't fair

The bridge starts out with 2 measures for guitar only, after that, the bass enters and
plays

Riff D: (Play 6 times, vocals enter 3rd time):

E# |————————————————|————————————————||
B# |————————————————|————————————————||
F# |————————————————|————————————————||
C# |6—6—————6—6—————|6—6—————6—6—————||

(Bridge)
Damned if I do and damned if I don't
Damned if I will and damned if I won't
Damned for your screamin' that this ain't fair
God damn your screamin', I don't care

Underneath the solo, the bass plays this:

Riff E (Play twice):

E# |————————————————|————————————————||
B# |————————————————|————————————————||
F# |————————————————|————————————————||
C# |0—0—0—1———0———0—|0—0—1———0—0—1———||

E# |————————————————|————————————————||
B# |————————————————|————————————————||
F# |————————————————|————————————————||
C# |0—0—0—1———0———0—|3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—||

Basically, you return to the beginning of the song now. Play Riff B 4 times and then play
Riff C 4 times. But instead of playing Riff B 4 times, play it 3 1/2 times, leaving out the
"h4p3". The Chorus is the same as the first Chorus again; Riff A 4 times but Fill 1 again
the last time.

(3rd verse)
Took a little time before you tried to fuck me
Made a little spot for you right there, on the floor
So fuck your good intentions
Fuck your human rights
Fuck your finger in my face
This time I'm gonna bite

(Chorus)
Damned, for if I love me
Damned, for if I care
Damned, for all the make you feel betters
As the damned scream this ain't fair
Damned, for if I love me
Damned, for if I care
Damned, for all the make you feel betters
As the damned scream this ain't fair

Then the song is over. Easy aint it? Didnt realize that till i tried to transcribe it.
And im sorry for any confusion you may come across. I tried my best to explain it.
