Century 
by +Live+ 
#4 on Secret Samadhi

transcribed by Andy Dufresne (dufresne@deskmedia.com)

This is one of the cooler songs on the new album. Tune down ½ step
to Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb.  All chords are written as they would be 
played in standard tuning (ie- the F# is technically an F).  I would 
make a chord key, but that would take a while and you should all 
know these chords anyway. Ok, now the song:



E		F#
Everybody's here
		E
puke stinks like beer
		F#
this could be a city
			E
this could be a graveyard
		F#
you stole my idea
		E	F#
you stole my idea

E	         F#
everybody's anxious
			E
for the coming of the crisis
			F#
the collapse of the justice
			E
I can smell your armpits
		F#
you stole my idea
		E
you stole my idea
		F#
you stole my idea

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/live/century_tab.html ]
CHORUS:
F#			G
this puke stinks like beer and everybody's here
G			F#
come on, come on, come on
G	  F#		E          G  F#  E
let's lay waste to this century
G			F#
come on, come on, come on
G		E
return to nothing


E			F#
everybody's anxious
			E
the crowd is all around us
		F#
the followers of Aldous
			    E
are spinning with their mescaline
			F#
a man behind the altar screams
		E
you stole my idea
		F#	E
you were my idea
		

(CHORUS)

G			F#
come on, come on, come on
G	    F#		E	   G  F#  E
let's lay waste to this century

BRIDGE:
F#		G			A
on the edge of a kiss, smack on the lips
		Cm
dangled with tongue
F#		G			A
on the edge of a peace that can't stand low
		Cm
and won't stand tall

G			F#
come on, come on, come on
G	    F#		E	   G  F#  E
let's lay waste to this century
G			F#
come on, come on, come on
G	     E	     G      F#		
return to nothing, and help me
G		   F#		   E
it's amazing what we can do with love
G 		F#	 E	G    F#     E
with some matches and gasoline, do with love
G	F#		  E	   G	F#	E
it's amazing what we can do with love

"Century" by Live
On the new album, Secret Samadhi

This is a cool song from Live's latest album.  The album's really good, 
but it's something that definitely grows on you as you listen to it.

Transcribed by spider@olemiss.edu

Tune a 1/2 step down, as per usual for about 99% of Live's songs.

This is real easy, but here's one of the main chords he uses:

F#7 sus4/E (F sharp 7 suspended 4 with an E bass, I know, I know,
		it sounds a lot harder than it actaully is.  It's 
		basically an open E chord moved up two frets.)

eb:---0----|
Bb:---0----|
Gb:---2----|
Db:---4----|
Ab:---4----|
Eb:---0----|



Verse:
(using Chorus)

E		F#7 sus4/E
  Everybody's here...   (simply repeat these two chords for the verse,
				 and listen to the song to get the correct
				 strumming pattern.)


Chorus:
(using distortion)

			    B
this puke stinks like beer,
(B)
and everybody's here, so
A 			     G
come on, come on, come on,
	 F#   E
let's lay waste to this 
   	B   A   B
century...
A 			     G
come on, come on, come on,
	 F#   E
return to nothing...

(again, listen for the strumming pattern; there's some chunk-a-chunk-a 
 muting on the A chord.  Also, all the other chorus' all simply extended
 versions of the first, so listen for those changes, too)


Bridge:

F#			   G	 		   A
  On the edge, of a kiss, smack on the lips
			D
  dangled with tongue
F#			   G	 	   		  A
  On the edge, of a peace, that can't stand low
			B
  and won't stand tall!


That's pretty much all the parts to this song; just piece them together
and have fun!
