Save Yourself
by Stabbing Westward
Written by Stabbing Westward
>From the album Darkest Days
Tabbed by Brock La Voie

Drop D tuning then tune down another half step.

*=harmonics
g/=gradual slide
ghb=gradual half bend

The rhythm on this song is very easy but I think the harmonic
sound is programmed because when I saw them play, it didn't look
like Marcus was playing a harmonic, but what I have sounds ok.  Also,
on the bridge, I'm not sure so if you have a correction, let me know.


Intro:

D---4*-4*-4*-4*---4*-4*-4*-4*-------4*-4*-4*-4*---4*-4*-4*-4*----
A-3-------------3-------------0-6-3-------------3-------------0-6  x4
D-3-------------3-------------0-6-3-------------3-------------0-6

No music during the verses.

Chorus:

G-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--------------------------------
D-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8---4*-4*-4*-4*---4*-4*-4*-4*----
A-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-3-------------3-------------0-6
D---------------------------------3-------------3-------------0-6

G-----------------------------
D---4*-4*-4*-4*---4*-4*-4*-4*-
A-3-------------3------------- x2

Then you repeat the intro again.
No music during second verse.

Lyrics:

I know your life is empty
And you hate to face this world alone
So you're searching for an angel
Someone who can make you whole

I cannot save you, I can't even save myself

I know that you've been damaged
Your soul has suffered such abuse
but I am not your savior
I am just as fucked as you

I cannot save you, I can't even save myself

Please don't take pity on me

My life has been a nightmare
My soul is fractured to the bone
So if I must be lonely
I think I'd rather be alone

You cannot save me, You can't even save yourself
I cannot save you, I can't even save myself
So just save yourself


Well, that's what i got.  If you have comments, corrections, or
questions,
just e-mail me, and i'll clear it up as soon as i can.
