All There Is  Bad Religion

The Empire Strikes First
Tabed by: Justin Le Tourenau
my email is
I re-wrote my original tab so it was in standard tuning, and added the solo ( I have no
idea if it's right, but it sounds good to me)
Note: Lowercase letters are meant to signify the higher note (example F - 133xxx
f - x81010xx)
pick slide;
[D]This song goes o[F]ut to a[C]ll the hopeless sinner[B]s[/] [C]
[D]With Grave alle[F]giances so meaning[C]less and vai[F]n[-] [C]
D A B f - e
The walking wounded, in a pageant of contenders,
D# A# f(let ring)
who balance on a rail of pain for just a pail of rain
D A# f e
And everything is barely mised- blood relations and bricks
[D]My expression, my confessio[A#]n
Add it u[F]p, extract a les[A]son - more than thi[D]s
Once ag[A#]ain, like a bulle[F]t, as a frei[A]nd tell me;
A# C D (let ring)
Can that be all there is?
[D]In my rectory of d[F]oubt i knee[C]l to prlay like one d[B]ev[/]ou[C]t
[D]As time the great gray [F]dreamles[C]s sleep of a useless modern [F]god[-] [C]
D A / B f - e
Erodes away each storied day as wreched Adams with hell to pay
D# A# f(let ring)
Content upon a rail of pain for just a little rain
Verse 2:
D A# f e
And everything is dearly mised- blood relations and bricks
[D]My expression, my confession[A#]
[F]Add it up, extract a lesson - m[A]ore than this[D]
Once agai[A#]n, like a bull[F]et, as a frei[A]nd tell me;
A# C D (let ring)
Can that be all there is?
Rythem - (Play the first 2 lines of Verse 2 and then play D# A# B)

Verse 3:
(Palm Mute)
[D]There's and endless dispo[F]sition and it d[C]oesn't mean a god damn thi[B]ng[/] [C]
D F C f - C
There's space for a paper airplane race in the eye of a hurricane
And if [D]pigs could fly then surely [A]so could I
B f \ e
But this pedestrian know better than to even try
e B f
My divinity is caught between the colors of a butterfly
pick slide;
D A# f e
And everything is dearly mised- blood relations and bricks
[D]My expression, my confession[A#]
[F]Add it up, extract a lesson - m[A]ore than this[D]
Once agai[A#]n, like a bullet, as [F]a freind tell[A] me;
Ca[A#]n that be al[C]l there is[A]?[A#]
C D (let ring)
All there is?
