 Album: Bitte Orca
  Song: Cannibal Resource

*TWO NOTES*

1. This tab is a representation of the recorded version of
Cannibal Resource. The live version features many variations
on the material presented here and can be figured out by using
what's written here as a springboard.

2. Because of the high notes and the capo on the 5th fret, the BRIDGE
is difficult (but not impossible) to play cleanly on a guitar that
doesn't allow easy access to the higher frets (i.e. up to 17).

Look around at everyone
Everyone looks alive and waiting
The wind is up, the stars out
The sun is calm, the light is fading
But we are

Still counting on cannibal resource
Ok, open your eyes
I think you're more than a terrified witness
Behind the arbitrary line

Can it ask a question?
Can it sing a a melody?
Can it be interpreted?
Or is it more than what the eye can see?
Maybe not

Still counting on cannibal resource
Ok, open your eyes
I think you're more than a terrified witness
Behind the arbitrary line

I'm cyrin', I'm cryin'

Still counting on cannibal resource
Ok, open your eyes
I think you're more than a terrified witness
Behind the arbitrary line
The arbitrary line
The arbitrary line
The arbitrary line
