I tabbed out the song the way it goes on the album.
I tried to show how to play the chords, but it’s
far from perfect. You’ll probably have to listen
to the song while you play and figure out the rhytm
and the chord playing.

Redefine the line to make your circle sing

The spell is bound to come around
It’s just a minor thing
He knows everything

It’s just a minor thing
And I’m a minor king
He knows everything

PATTERN 3
You’ve got your bit part, Mozart
Hot dart acceleration
Pop art, pistol chasin’
Cat fight intimidation

Black star motivation
Vampire sugar junkie
