Here it is



Testament
"Demonic Refusal"
from "Demonic (11107-2)" track 1  and "Signs of Chaos: The Best of Testament
(11120-2)" track 6
Music by Eric Peterson 
Words by Chuck Billy
Published by Burnt Offerings/Fierce/Mayhem
Tabbed by Kevin Burnes
Typed up by Adam de Angeli

Tuning: DADGBE

Wherever you see a double line the riff might split up somewhere 
(depending on where in the song you are).  Not all repeats are shown, but
this tab should make it pretty damn easy to learn the song.  For palm mutes,
start at the note above for the next note above the "P" and stop and either
the "|" if given or the "M".  The counting is shown above the staff for
convienience.  The the count is "*  &  a" there are some triplets in there.
Any questions or comments email me.  Effects are just distortion, as far as
I can tell.

Copyrights of song: Testament

F. Chorus: Time for this part is hard to figure out.  Dotted eighth-sixteenth
patterns are slightly too irregular, triplets are too regular. listen and 
just play it like Testament does.

back to verse.

Lyrics
A.
You take my hand and sympathize
You felt the flesh.  You realized
You took my will, now I'm deprived
Save myself, just save myself

B.
I.... can not be taken unto
All that I have can not be taken

C.
She has ways mischievous
Takes your soul in pact
Demonic chants of Manatu
Save your soul, just save your soul

D.
A strong will is my defense
For the future and past

E.
I... feel what I feel
I... seen what I've seen
I... have what I have
All I have is from me.. yeah!!!!(?)

F.
Yeah he feeds on innocence
Dreams the taste of war
Smells the fear that he has dreamt
Wake yourself, just wake yourself

G.
The tarot cards on the table
Showed the future and past

H.
I... am a prisoner of fate
I'... m refusing all hate
I... will cast it away
I... will not be a slave

I.
In through out death I shall be
