Lyrics & tab for Maniac Dance

Post by Luther_Harkon » Sun Jul 24, 2005 11:49 pm

Hey guys! I'm just trying to get the lyrics and the guitar tab of the new Strato-song, Maniac Dance. A great song, not a typical stratovarius theme, but doesn't matter. If somebody has the lyrics and tab/partiture, post them here or just a link. Thanks guys!

Lyrics Posted by "eternity_strato":

This year has been a nightmare
I feel so low and don't care
I dwell in death so darkness
well may cross the ocean of pain


[it's a bottomless pit arena]
from pages gossips knives
drunken nights and days

sadness rise, oh blessness
I'm nothing without you

I get the dance
I do the maniac dance
Just like in [dance/trance]
I do the maniac dance

This demon serves me well
[but once it sent me] to the depths of hell
A rollercoaster ride [it] has been I can[t?] tell

But i'm a walking miracle of medicine
a real catastrophe on legs
a proud member of human race
no nasty tricks

[... therapy push me row]
Anger, fear and shame

I get the dance
I do the maniac dance
Just like in [dance/trance]
I do the maniac dance
Stratovarius, The best power-melodic-symphonic metal band ever.
The legend of Zelda, The Best Game Ever.
Devil May Cry 3 Best Action Game Ever.
"I love this!, this is for what i live for!, I am absolutely crazy about it!!!"- Dante.

Here's the intro arranged for guitar. I'm too lazy to tab out the whole thing right now, though Ive got it all in my head (listened to the video about ten times today...). I'll put the rest of it here tomorrow for you though.

Db|---------------------------------5-----
Ab|-7---7-5-7---7-5-7---7-5-7---7-5-

Ab|-7---7-5-7---7-5-7---7-5-----------
Eb|-------------------------------7-6-5-3

Db|---------------------------------5-----

There has been some discussion as to the lyrics obviously...
I would like to post my additions/revisions to the lyrics that you posted in this thread:

This year has been a nightmare
I feel so low I don't care
I've dwelt in depths of darkness
well may cross the ocean of pain


[it's a bottomless pit area] (not correct for sure)
from pages gossips knifings
drunken nights and days

sadness rise, oh blessness (not correct most likely)
I am nothing without you

Again the Dance
I do the maniac dance
Just like a trance
I do the maniac dance

This demon serves me well
[but once it sent me] to the depths of hell
A rollercoaster ride it has been I can tell

But i'm a walking miracle of medicine
a real catastrophe on legs
a proud member of human race
no nasty tricks

[... therapy push me row] [therapy...me wrong?]
Anger, fear and shame

Again
I do the maniac dance
Just like a trance
I do the maniac dance

1 - Maniac Dance

This year has been a nightmare
I feel so low and don't care
I dwell in death so darkness
well may cross the ocean of pain

I felt the Tabloids of media
it's a bottomless speech in radial
from pages gossips I’ve been
strucken nights and days

Sadness raised, oh bless ness
I'm nothing without you

I get the dance
I do the maniac dance
Just like in dance
I do the maniac dance

These demons serves me well
it's worst to sent me to the death or hell
a rollercoaster, I need a spin I can’t tell

But i'm a walking miracle medicine
real catastrophic or less
proud member of human race
no nasty tricks

Saranac Demerol therapy push me row ( I DIDN't GET THE FRIST TWO WORDS)
Anger, fear and shame

I get the dance
I do the maniac dance
Just like in dance
I do the maniac dance

You should see the United Lyrics... United RULES!!!!!

I thought more along the lines of....

This year has been a nightmare
I feel so low I don't care
I dwell in depths of darkness
well may cross the ocean of pain

I felt the Tabloids the media
it's a bottomless pit iredia (?)
from pages gossips, knivings
drunken nights and days

Sadness raised, hopelessness
I am nothing without you

Again I dance
I do the maniac dance
Just like a trance
I do the maniac dance

This demon serves me well
It wants to send me to the depths of hell
a rollercoaster ride it has been, I can tell

But i'm a walking miracle of medicine
A real catastropy on legs
proud member of human race
no nasty tricks

(Cant understand here) therapy proves me wrong
Anger, fear and shame

Again I dance
I do the maniac dance
Just like a trance
I do the maniac dance

Thats just my opinon of what it is :wink:

Ill update my tab a bit now, as I have a couple minutes.

Chorus part- same as the intro, but all powerchords
(ex: Ab|--9 instead of Eb|--7
.......Eb|--7


Verse: (mute all but hammer-ons and slides)

Db|-0h2----------------------------------
Ab|-0h2----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2
Eb|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

Db|-0h2----------------------------------
Ab|-0h2----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2
Eb|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

Db|-0h2----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ab|-0h2----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2
Eb|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

Db|-5/7---------------------------------
Ab|-5/7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7
Eb|-3/5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5

Gb|----------------------------7---7-
Db|-5/7-----------------------7---7-
Ab|-5/7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---5---5-
Eb|-3/5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5----------

Db|-0h2----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ab|-0h2----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2
Eb|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

Bridge

Db|-4-------------7-------------------5b7r5p0
Ab|-4-------------7------------------------------
Eb|-2-------------5------------------------------

Well, this is the rest of the rhythm for the song. Make sure to really crunch those muted chords for the full effect. I'll finish the tab tomorrow if I have a few free minutes at work again (the solo), if not, expect it sometime later this week.

Oh stop complaining. There's nothing wrong with guessing and writing what you hear. Like there's nothing wrong with trying to tab it. It's been released on the website its not like it hasnt been released yet at all.

I apologize for the slight off-topic, but since we're talking about lyrics... I seem to have found the ones for Fight!!. They're apparently about the arduousness of being a budding guitar hero in your late teenies, especially the last verse. I'm sure a lot of us can relate to that, no?

You wake up late for school - man you don't wanna go
You ask you mom, "Please?" - but she still says, "No!"
You missed two classes - and no homework
But your teacher preaches class like you're some kind of jerk

You gotta fight!! ...for your right to party

You pop caught you smoking - and he said, "No way!"
That hypocrite - smokes two packs a day
Man, living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Bust it!)

You gotta fight!! ...for your right to party

Don't step out of this house if that's the clothes you're gonna wear
I'll kick you out of my home is you don't cut that hair
Your mom busted in and said, "What's that noise?"
Aw, mom you're just jealous - it's Stratovarius!

You gotta fight!! ...for your right to party


Oh, you're welcome.
You know where you are? You're in the jungle, baby. You're gonna DIE!

what the hell is wrong with you!!! that is nothing like Fight, maybe another band but no way what Strato's fight sounds like
firs off its starts

"By the mountain"


the chorus is

"what im i fighting for?
what im i living for?
that is the part that i dont know...

You gotta fight
fight for your life
until you die
fight for your life"
Close your eyes and try to remember, destroyed lullabies of days gone by
Close your eyes on the edge of forever, a chance to dream fast asleep your nightmare ends

[Fly the mountains]
[Pictures] on my [back]
Hopeless feelings
Everything is black

What I'm fighting for?
What I'm living for?
Dare is a path I don't know

You got to fight!!!
Fight for your life!
Until you die!
Fight for your rights

Endless searching
In this [sider] space
All is turning
Into all disgrace

What I'm searching for?
What I'm running for?
Dare is a path I don't know

You got to fight!!!
Fight for your life!
Until you die!
Fight for your rights

Fight for your life!
Until you die

No no, those are the lyrics. I shit you not. Fo shizzle.

Although, funny how a moment ago you were calling people impatient bastards and now are posting the supposed lyrics yourself. ;)

If you want to talk about the lyrics of a song nobody has legally heard yet, open a new topic for it. I viewed this thread because it's about a song that has been RELEASED in the website, and end up finding the lyrics to another song.

Common sense, people. Please.

by the impatient bastards i meant the ones who hate spammers and go post on topics about how they are spamming, when by posting that they are the spammers

and i never said those lyrics were offitial or anything, just that nowhere in hell does it say fight for your righ to parte! look at the band, they are not 17 year old garage band that would right that kind of crappy commercial song

Aaw, and I was just trying to be funny since some of you were getting so head over heels about others posting their version of lyrics to a song. Guess I need to keep my humor to the three people who understand it. In other words: me, myself and I. Image

Btw, those were the lyrics to a Beastie Boys song. :)
