Variation #1: This song was usually played with a new intro from 2007-early 2008, as it 
was either the opening song or the first song after the encore break. It starts with 
playing by himself, before being joined by Brad:

From there, it goes into "Heavy Intro" normally.

Variation #2: In the summer of 2008, this song recieved another new intro. It follows a 
formula: Mike starts off by himself and is joined by Brad, but this intro is based 
the bridge riff instead:

Variation #4: Starting in 2008, this song recieved an extended outro (only at some shows 
January-March, but all shows starting in June). This is also based on the bridge riff, 
tabbed it here starting with the final chorus:

Variation #5: In 2009, Mike changed up the extended outro a bit by playing some octaves 
the second half of it, while Brad continued as usual. These were improvised and 
every time, so I won't attempt to tab them.
