                                               Ritardando on last repetition

  Play this riff eight times. THE LAST NOTE IS NOT PLAYED THE LAST TIME.
  Then wait for the guitar to play their riff and come in on cue :

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------7-7-7-------------
------------------------
-7--7-7--7-7-7-7--10-10-10--7--7-7--7-7-7-7--------7--7-7--7-7-7-7--10-10-10-
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------

-----------------------------|
----------------------------.|
-7--7-7--7-7----3-3-5-.|
-----------------------------|
  
  This riff is played and then the guitar plays a riff.  The bass enters 
 twice and the third time the riff is played continuously for three reps.
 Then the lyrics begin along with the following riff(played 4 times):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------.|
-7--7-7-7-0-3--5---7--7-7-7-0-3-3-5-5---7--7-7-7-0-3-3-5-5--7--7-7-7-0-3-0-.|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Now is the chorus:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

                     Right here you have to slow down a lot.
