There are two guitars for this song and a LOT going on.  This is a pretty rough guide on 
to be able to play this song.  There are plenty of parts where the background guitar is 
something and I don't have it tabbed out.  For the most part all of the lead parts are here.

The rhythm of the first part of the song, the picking pattern, is 123, 123, 123, 123, 1234

We know who does it best,
Wind is blowing through closed doors
With shadows dancing in the hall
Now hit the floor, crawl to the side,
We've all made better moves despite our slowing feet

Let hate save you when nothing else will
I know the truth, it won?t save you
