crime scene pt. 1
Tuning: The bass seems to be in dropped D (from low to high DADG). Although I have never heard of the whigs using this type of tuning Iíve tabbed it in that tuning anyway. The guitar is in normal tuning.

The song begins in Bb major, then in chorus it goes to F major

lyrics
guitar and bass enter at 1:04 with riff 1

Riff 1
      Tonight, tonight I say goodbye
      To everyone who loves me
      Stick it to my enemies, tonight
      Then I disappear
      Bathe my path in shining light
      Set the dials to thrill me
      Every secret has its price
      This one's set to kill
Riff 2
      Too loose, too tight, too dark, too bright
      A lie, the truth, which one should I use?
      If the lie succeeds
      Then you'll know what I mean
      When I tell you I have secrets
      To attend

Riff 3
      Do you think I'm beautiful?
      Or do you think I'm evil?
      Will you take me for a ride?
      The one that never ends
Riff 4
      Too loose, too tight, too dark, too bright
      A lie, the truth, which one shall I use?
      If the lie succeeds
      Then you'll know what I mean
      When I tell you I have secrets
      To attend

Riff 1
      Tonight, tonight I say goodbye
Riff 3
      To everything that thrills me
      As I throw the chains
      I forged in life
      To shatter on the floor
Riff 4
      As I dream all the evidence
      Is piling up against me
      As I breathe all the essence rare
      Is falling off the vine
      And if you knew, just how smooth
      I could stop it on the dime
      You could meet me at the
      scene of the crime

End with riff 1...
