 I stole a key

 I saw the lights go down and they're standing in front of me

This tab is really good but I have 2 corrections for it.

1. For the lead guitar, you transposed the notes the wrong way. Since the strings are being tuned lower, the notes played should be higher. This also causes a really weird stretch at one part so here is a tab in the same tuning that works:


d |-------------------8-----8---8---8--8---|
Bb |-----12----12---------------------------|
G |-/10----10-----7h8---8-7---7---7---7--7-|
D |----------------------------------------|
A |----------------------------------------|
Eb |----------------------------------------|

d |--------------------------------------------------------|
Bb |-----4-----4-------4---------------4----4------4--------|
G |-3h5---3h5----3h5-----5--3--0--3h5--3h5---3h5-----5--3--|
D |--------------------------------------------------------|
A |--------------------------------------------------------|
Eb |--------------------------------------------------------|


2. The part right before the interlude, this

d |--x---x----x---x---x----x---|
Bb |--x---x----x---x---x----x---|
G |--x---x----x---x---x----x---|
D |--4---12---7---4---12---9---|
A |--4---12---7---4---12---9---|
Eb |--4---12---7---4---12---9---|

should just be this

P.M.---------------------|
d |----------------------------|
Bb |----------------------------|
G |----------------------------|
D |----------------------------|
A |----------------------------|
Eb |--4---12---7---4---12---9---|

with only playing the bottom string and palm muting

Other than that, great tab!
