This is a played-by-ear transcription of arguably Killing Joke's
most popular mainstream song, which also highlights Geordie's 
extensive use of the open strings for 'stereo guitar' effects.

Thanks to my very forgiving turntable, I have managed to pick up 
most of the notes after relentless diggings into the vinyl.
(I played this song to death for almost ten years, and it
finally took the 'net to help me get it out of my system!)

I hope you enjoy playing this song the way I do.  Feel free to 
drop me a line for corrections (I'm sure there must be!), any
suggestions, kind words, vitriol, or whatever.
