From: wfpol@cs.ruu.nl (Wilbert Pol)


The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
    1. eight notes         (1 slash)   or
    2. sixteenth notes     (2 slashes) or
    3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
 - slide down
(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo  (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

||--  --||
||-o  o-||  - a repeat

Lyrics :
 1. Let us have peace, let us have life
    Let us escape the cruel night
    Let us have time, let the sun shine
    Let us beware the deadly sign

 Pre-chorus & Chorus :
    The day is coming
    Armageddon's near
    Inferno coming
    Can we survive the blitzkrieg
    The blitzkrieg
    The blitzkrieg

 2. Save us from fate, save us from hate
    Save ourselves before it's too late
    Come to our need, hear our plea
    Save ourselves before the earth bleeds

 Pre-chorus & Chorus :
    The day is dawning
    The time is near
    Aliens coming
    Can we survive the blitzkrieg
