[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 1]
Wanna bite the hand that feeds me
Wanna turn the tides
Set the demons free and watch 'em fly
[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 2]
Strike down the one who leads me
I'm gonna take his place
Gonna vindicate the human race

[Rhy. Fig 1]
Better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine
[Rhy. Fig 2]
Better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 1]
Take the reins of power and seize them
Draw the battle lines
Armageddon's just a matter of time
[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 2]
Tear down the voice of reason
Let the arrows fly
Your freedom's just a state of mind, yeah

[Rhy. Fig 1] (2x)
Better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine
You better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine

Great tab, but I'm pretty sure that the first bar in Rhythm 3 is actually the end of Rhythm 2. Look at the end of Ending 1: The E5 to G with vibrato takes the place of the same E5 to G with vibrato at the end of bar 1 in Rhythm 3. The second bar of Rhy 3 should be the beginning of that riff because of how it cycles back around after Ending 1.

Basically like this:
