Life’s a Joke
by The Speaks
Tabbed by: Benjie…

This is a nice song… just try to figure it out…

Intro: (the bass plays an E-B-A-B progression)

Guitar 1: (clean)
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|----8h9--9---8h9--9---8h9-------| 8x
|----9~~~~9~~~9~~~~9~~~9~~-------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
	
Guitar 2: (w/ chorus)
*riff #1 
|---------------|
|---------------|
|----8-8-9-8----| 4x
|---------------|
|---------------|
|---------------|

Then both guitars play… (w/ Distortion)
|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|---9~~~~~------------------------------| 2x
|---9~~~~~---9~~~~~---7~~~~~---9~~~~~---|
|---7~~~~~---9~~~~~---7~~~~~---9~~~~~---|
|------------7~~~~~---5~~~~~---7~~~~~---|


Verse 1: (E-B-A-B) Guitar 2 plays *riff #1…

The clouds are out today, inside I'm losing 
I think it's funny but it's not amusing 
It's just a little thing that I'm abusing
I pray for sanity but I'm not gonna lose it 

Interlude: (heavy distortion)

|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|---9~~~~~------------------------------|
|---9~~~~~---9~~~~~---7~~~~~---9~~~~~---|
|---7~~~~~---9~~~~~---7~~~~~---9~~~~~---|
|------------7~~~~~---5~~~~~---7~~~~~---|

|--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|---9~~~~~-----------------------------------------------|
|---9~~~~~---9~~~~~---7~~~~~-----------------------------|
|---7~~~~~---9~~~~~---7~~~~~----7---6--------------------|
|------------7~~~~~---5~~~~~------------7---5---4--5-----|



Verse 2: (the same as with the first verse)

You want to worship me, I am an illusion
You give me sympathy but I'll never use it 
It's just a little thing that I'm abusing
I pray for sanity and now I'm gonna lose it 

Chorus: (E-B-A-B)

|--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|----9~~~~~~~~~~~~---------------------------------------|
|----9~~~~~~~~~~~~---------------------9~~~~~~~~~~~------|
|----7~~~~~~~~~~~~---------------------9~~~~~~~~~~~------|
|--------------------------------------7~~~~~~~~~~~------|
	   Thinking about the days when I was young 

	|----------------
	|----------------
	|----------------
	|----7~~~~~~~~---
|----7~~~~~~~~---
|----5~~~~~~~~---
And life was looking pretty 
	|--------------------------------------------------------|
	|--------------------------------------------------------|
	|-------------------------------------------7~~~---------|
	|-------------------------------------------7~~~---------|
	|--------7------6---------------------------5~~~---------|
	|----------------------7----5------4----5----------------|
It's hard to comit when all you think is life's a joke 

(the same)
Breathing it in when all you want is gone 
And life is looking shitty 
It's hard to admit when all you think is 
Life's a joke 

Adlib: it is just like the chorus w/ 1 of the guitars playing:

(Distorted w/ slight delay)
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----8h9p8------8h9p8------8h9p8---| 4x
|------------9----------9-----------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|

Then…
|-------------7-----------7----------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|-----8h9-9-------8h9-9--------8h9-8-8-----| 3x
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|

|------------7h9---7-------------------------------------|
|-----------------------10--9—9h10--7--------------------|
|----8h9--8----------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|



Verse 2: E-B-A-B (the same as the 1st verse)
You want to worship me, I am an illusion
You give me sympathy but I'll never use it 
It's just a little thing that I'm abusing
I pray for sanity and now I'm gonna lose it 

Chorus: (The same)
Thinking about the days when I was young 
And life was looking pretty 
It's hard to comit when all you think is 
Life's a joke 

Breathing it in when all you want is gone 
And life is looking shitty 
It's hard to admit when all you think is 
Life's a joke 

Thinking about the days when I was young 
And life was looking pretty 
It's hard to comit when all you think is 
Life's a joke 

Breathing it in when all you want is gone 
And life is looking shitty 
It's hard to admit when all you think is 
Life's a joke 

(the same as chorus) just listen to the song…
Life's a joke
Life's a joke

Then the ending goes like:

Guitar 1:
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|--------7------6---------------------------|
|----------------------7----5------4----5---|

|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------7-|
|------------------------------------------7-|
|--------7------6--------------------------5-|
|----------------------7----5------4----5----|

Guitar 2: it just goes in on the 2nd measure

|------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------|
|------9----8-------------------7----|
|---------------9---7---6--7----7----|
|-------------------------------5----|
|------------------------------------|

	That’s all... I hope you got it... Thx...
