Lifes A Joke

Speaks


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...
