|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|

|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-2b-------------|---------------|-2b------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|

<Chorus One:

<Chorus Two:

|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|<---Play twice 
|----------------|---1-1-2-2-----|
|-0---0---0---0--|-0-1-1-2-2-----|

When James starts singing "We the people" you play this:
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|-3-5-0-0-3-5-0--|-3-5-0-0-3-5-0-|

After James says "Are we the people?" play this mixed with the riff above:
|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
|-3-5-0-3-5-0----|Above riff here|-3-5-0-3-5-0---| Above riff here|

Then:
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|<---Play twice 
|----------------|---1-1-2-2-----|
|-0---0---0---0--|-0-1-1-2-2-----|

|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|<---Then approx. 4-5  times
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-3-5-0------|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-3-5---|

Then play this twice:
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-3-5-0------|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-3-5---|  
                                                      
|----------------|---------------|---------------| 
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|-0-0-0-3-5-0----|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-------|
Chorus Two>

Back to verse, then chorus 1, verse, Chorus 2 then:
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|-0-0-12-0-12-12-|0--------------|

|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|
|-------3--------|-------3-------|<---6x
|----------------|---------------|
|-0-2/3---0001---|-0-2/3---000111|

Play this when James is singing the stuff like 
"This is the Cloud that swallows trust"
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|----------------|
|-3-5-5-3-5-5----|

I don't know what to play when the guys are chanting "Ominous I'm in us".

This is the ending riff that I think is hilarious:
|-12h17-12h17----|-1212-12h17----|-12h17-12------|
|-12h17-12h17----|-1212-12h17----|-12h17-12------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|<-2x
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|
|----------------|---------------|---------------|

That's it, listen to the song to figure out the whole placement, 
what a way to end such a heavy song eh?If you know the riff to 
when the boys are chanting E-Mail it to me.XxStMetalxX@hotmail.com
