I'll try to "pretty" it up when I have the time. - Chris)
Lyrics:
Steady repetition is a compulsion mutually reenforced.
Now what does that mean?
Is there a just contradiction?
Nothing much.
Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord, hesitate.
Got to punch
Right on target
Twisting tongues
Gotta stripe down his back
all nine yards down her back
Give me a couple,
Don't give me a couple of pointers,
Turn to lies and conversation fear
Got to punch
Right on target
Twisting tongues
Gotta stripe down his back
all nine yards down her back
Give me a couple,
Don't give me a couple of pointers,
Turn to lies and conversation fear
What is my mind?
What is my mind?
Steady repetition is a compulsion mutually reenforced.
Now what does that mean?
Is there a just contradiction?
Nothing much.
Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake, oh come on, hesitate, hesitate.
Got to punch
Right on target
Twisting tongues
Gotta stripe down his back
all nine yards down her back
Give me a couple,
Don't give me a couple of pointers,
Turn to lies and conversation fear
Conversation fear. Conversation fear. Conversation fear.

(in normal tuning)
intro is of course strings and notes, but if you play an A chord it
sounds good. Then after the intro before the song kicks in I think
it is a B or B5. From what I can tell the verse is E then B (orB5) and the
last line of the verse is E and the chorus goes B//A// and there may be a G
in there somewhere but maybe it's just the bass playing a G.

I'm not certain about the intro so here's my best shot:
E:-2-3-5-3s2-2 that's the bassline....
e:---0-----0-----0-----0-----
B:-2---2-3---3-5---5-3---3-3-2 that's my best guess at the jangles
Verse:
A two punch.............right on target........
E Esus4 E Bm 7th fret harmonics-s-5th fret harmonics
Chorus:
Give me a couple of, don't give me a couple of pointers turn to lies and
B A G A B A G
Conversation fear.
A B 7th fret harmonics-s-5th fret harmonics
