Knowing People

Written by Matthew Sweet(EMI Blackwood Music, Inc./Charm Trap Music 1993)
Found on Altered Beast LP (1993)

Transcription arranged by Jason Robinson (SporkGD@aol.com or shaft@trib.infi.net
	for questions or comments)

This is one of the best tunes on Altered Beast(at least in my opinion).  It
just is powerful and gritty, so if you heard it live, you know that
distortion is heavily used.  Like most of the songs on Altered Beast, this
song uses rhythm guitar and Richard Llyod backing up with the squeals and
lead alongside.  If I ever get the lead part singled out, I'll add on.
But the song's fairly simple...

Intro
Verse Riff 4 times, band enters on third riff

Verse
             B                 N.C.
Are you made like God
              E
When you start to bleed
      B                       N.C.
Do you really know
           E
What it is to breathe
               B               N.C.
Without a mind to think
        E
Or a hand in fate
              B                N.C.
You're an animal
                E
Filled with love and hate

And the way you move
N.C.                       E

Verse
Why should we care
What we do or say
Why would we long
For yesterday
What is here
And who wants to stay
No lasting life
And no judgement day

Pre-chorus
And the fact of you
And the way you move
And the things you say
Your desperate dreams
Are pathetic

Chorus
I don't like knowing people
I don't like people knowing about me
I don't like knowing people
I don't like people knowing about me
What are you lookin' at?

And I don't like people knowing about me
Get out of here
