Annihilation
Album: eMOTIVE (2004)
As tabbed by Joe Muggah

From dehumanization to arms production,
For the benefit of the nation, or it's destruction.

Power, power; the law of the land,
Those living for death will die by their own hand.
Life's no ordeal if you come to terms.
Reject the system dictating the norms.

From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten the nation towards it's destruction.

Power, power; the law of the land,
Those living for death will die by their own hand.
Life's no ordeal if you come to terms.
Reject the system dictating the norms.

From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten the nation towards its destruction.

Power, power; the law of the land,
Those living for death will die by their own hand.
Life's no ordeal if you come to terms.
Reject the system dictating the norms.

From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten this nation towards it's destruction.
It's your choice, your choice, your choice.
Your choice; peace or annihilation.back to top
Imagine
Z320s Tabs
A Perfect Circle - Imagine(cover)
Original: John Lennon
First Draft :: Fix at will

Imagine theres no heaven
Its easy if you tried
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
No religion too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you will join us
And the world will live as one

Imagine no possesions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you will join us
And the world will live as oneback to top
What's Going On
Album: eMOTIVE (2004)
As tabbed by Joe Muggah


Mother, mother, there's too many of you crying.
Brother, brother, far too many of you dying.
You know we've got to find a way,
To bring some loving here today.

Father, father, we don't need to escalate.
War is not the answer; only love can conquer hate.
You know we've got to find a way,
To bring some loving here today.

Picket lines and picket signs.
Don't punish me with brutality.
Talk to me, so you can see,
What's going on, what's going on.
What's going on, what's going on.

Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong.
Oh, but who are they to judge us,
Simply because our hair is long?
Oh, you know we've got to find a way,
To bring understanding here today.

Picket lines and picket signs,
Don't punish me with brutality.
Talk to me, so you can see.
What's going on, what's going on.
What's going on, what's going on.back to top
Passive
"Dead as dead can be,"
The doctor tells me,
But I just canít believe him,
Ever the optimistic one,
Iím sure of your ability,
To become my perfect enemy,

Wake up,
And face me,
Donít play dead
'Cause maybe,
Someday I will walk away and say,
"You disappoint me",
"Maybe youíre better off this way",,

Leaning over you here,
Cold and catatonic,
I catch a brief reflection,
Of what you could and might have been,
It's your right and your ability,
To become my perfect enemy,

Wake up,
And face me,
Donít play dead,
'Cause maybe,
Someday Iíll walk away and say,
"You disappoint me",
"Maybe youíre better off this way",

"Maybe youíre better off this way",
"Maybe youíre better off this way",
"Maybe youíre better off this way",
"Youíre better off this",
"Youíre better off this",
"Maybe youíre better off",

Wake up, (Why can't you)
And face me, (Come on now)
Donít play dead, (Don't play dead)
'Cause maybe, (Because maybe)
Someday Iíll walk away and say, (Someday)
"You fucking disappoint me!"
"Maybe youíre better off this way"

Go ahead and play dead (Go!)
I know that you can hear this (Go!)
Go ahead and play dead (Go!)
Why can't you turn and face me? (Wake Up!)
Why can't you turn and face me? (Wake Up!)
Why can't you turn and face me? (Wake Up!)
Why can't you turn and face me? (Wake Up!)
You fucking disappoint me! (Go!)

Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,
I need some more,
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,
Don't ask what for

Sitting here I'm a loaded gun,
Waiting to go off,
I've got nothing to do,
But shoot my mouth off

Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,
I need some more,
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,
Don't ask what for

You know I'm gonna go out,
Get something for my head,
If I keep on doing this,
I'm gonna end up dead

Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,
I need some more,
Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,
Don't ask what for

I know the world's got problems,
I've got problems of my own,
Not the kind that can't be solved,
With an atom bomb

Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie,

People Are People
Album: eMOTIVE
As tabbed by Joe Muggah


We're different colors and different creeds.
And different people have different needs.

It's obvious you hate me,
Though I've done nothing wrong.
I've never even met you,
What could I have done?

La la la la, la la la la la.

People are people so why should it be?
You and I shouldn't get along.
People are people so why should it be?
You should hate me.

People are people so why should it be?
You and I shouldn't get along.
People are people so why should it be?
You should hate me.

Punching, kicking,
And you're shouting at me.
I'm relying on your common decency.
La la la la la.

So far it hasn't surfaced,
But I'm sure it exists.
It just takes a while
To travel from your head to your fist.

I can't understand,
what makes a man
hate another man?
Help me understand...

People are people so why should it be?
You and I shouldn't get along.
People are people so why should it be?
You should hate me.

People are people so why should it be?
You and I shouldn't get along.
People are people so why should it be?
You should hate me.

I can't understand,
what makes a man
hate another man?
Help me understand...

I can't understand,
what makes a man
hate another man?
Help me understand...

I can't understand,
what makes a man
hate another man?

Freedom of Choice
Album: eMOTIVE (2004)
As tabbed by Joe Muggah


We're victims of sadision on an open sea.
No one ever said that life was free.
Sank, swam, go down with the ship,
Just use your freedom of choice.

Iíll say it again in the land of the free:
Use your freedom of choice, your freedom of choice.

In ancient Rome there was a pawn,
Who faught the law and watched it fall.
He cast a stone, he felt secure,
He felt that he would never be heard.

Freedom of choice is what you've got.
Freedom of choice.

You're given a voice, you donít want it,
Seems to be the rule of thumb.
Donít be tricked by what you say,
You got two ways to go.

Iíll say it again in the land of the free:
Use your freedom of choice, freedom of choice.

Freedom of choice is what you've got.
Freedom of choice.

In ancient Rome there was a pawn,
Who faught the law and watched it fall.
He cast a stone, he felt secure,
He felt that his voice would never be heard.

Freedom of choice is what you've got.
Freedom from choice is what you want.
Freedom of choice is what you've got.
Freedom from choice is what you want.

Freedom from choice is what you want.
Freedom from choice.back to top
Let's Have a War
Album: eMOTIVE (2004)
As tabbed by Joe Muggah


There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...

Let's have a war: so you can go and die.
Let's have a war: we could all use the money.
Let's have a war: we need the space.
Let's have a war: clean out this place.

It already started in the city.
Suburbia will be just as easy.

There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...

Let's have a war: jack up the Dow Jones.
Let's have a war: it can start in New Jersey.
Let's have a war: blame it on the middle-class.
Let's have a war: we're like rats in a cage.

It already started in the city.
Suburbia will be just as easy.

There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...

Let's have a war: sell the rights to the networks.
Let's have a war: let our wallets get fat like last time.
Let's have a war: give guns to the queers.
Let's have a war: the enemy's within.

It already started in the city.
Suburbia will be just as easy.
It already started in the city.
Suburbia will be just as easy.

There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...
There's so many of us, there's so many of us, there's so many...

Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums
Don't fret precious, i'm here
step away from the window
go back to sleep
safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils
see, they don't give a fuck about you, like i do
count bodies like sheep (2x)
count bodies like sheep to the rythm of the war drums.
count bodies like sheep
go back to sleep
go back to sleep(2x)*count bodies like sheep to the rythm of the war drums* (3x)
go to sleep (15x)
go back to sleep (2x)
go back to sleep(2x)*count bodies like sheep to the rythm of the war drums* (5x)
go back to sleep
i'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
i'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
i'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices, son
they're one in the same
i must isolate you
isolate and save you from yourself

When the Levee Breaks
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
And the water gonna come in, have no place to stay

Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan,
Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan,
Thinking about my baby and my happy home,

If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break,
And all these people have no place to stay

Now look here mama what am I to do?,
Now look here mama what am I to do?,
I ain't got nobody to tell my troubles to

I works on the levee mama both night and day,
I works on the levee mama both night and day,
I ain't got nobody, keep the water away

Oh crying won't help you, praying won't do no good,
Oh crying won't help you, praying won't do no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to lose

I works on the levee, mama both night and day,
I works on the levee, mama both night and day,
I works so hard, to keep the water away

I had a woman, she wouldn't do for me,
I had a woman, she wouldn't do for me,
I'm going back to my used to be

It's a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
It's a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
Gonna leave my baby, and my happy homeback to top
Fiddle and the Drum
And so once again,
My dear Johnny, my dear friend,
And so once again you are fighting us all,
And when I ask you why,
You raise your sticks and cry, and I fall,
Oh, my friend,
How did you come?,
To trade the fiddle for the drum,
You say I have turned,
Like the enemies you've earned,
But I can remember,
All the good things you are,
And so I ask you please,
Can I help you find the peace and the star?,
Oh, my friend,
What time is this?,
To trade the handshake for the fist

And so once again,
Oh, America my friend,
And so once again,
You are fighting us all,
And when we ask you why,
You raise your sticks and cry and we fall,
Oh, my friend,
How did you come,
To trade the fiddle for the drum

You say we have turned,
Like the enemies you've earned,
But we can remember,
All the good things you are,
And so we ask you please,
Can we help you find the peace and the star?,
Oh my friend,
We have all come,
To fear the beating of your drumback to top
