Verse
The verse is divided into three different parts.  
It is the same basic riff just a little different on the endings.  
Kirk plays his riff along with Jaymz' three diffenent riffs.  
I'll put all the different parts together at the end.

   Fortune......................but the memory remains


This fill is played after the chorus and before Jaymz starts in on the second verse.  
Riff 1 is played under this fill.  Try playing this fill through the neck pickup.  
Sounds almost exactly like the CD.

"Dance little tin goddess"

The "Da, da, da" part has about five guitars playing under it, so I'm gonna try
and tab them the best I can.

This is rhythm part under the "Aye, da, da, da" part.

Eb-----------------------------------|

Ab--2--4--5--0-2-2--2--4--5--0-2-2---|
Eb--0--2--5------0--0--2--3------0---|

These next two parts are played together with the "Da, da, da" part.  It's
exactly the same as what she sings.

Finally figured out the high screechy part!!!  One guitar
plays the high ass part while the other doubles it lower.
The high part is played with some kind of messed up pitch
shifter effect or something.

Solo before the last "da, da, da" part.

Fortune fame, mirror vane, gone insane, but the memory remains

Heavy rings on fingers wave
Another star denies the grave
See the nowhere crowd cry the nowhere tears of honor
Like the twisted vines that grow
That hide and swallow mansions whole
And dim the light of an already faded prima donna

chorus

Heavy rings on cigarettes
Up tp lips that time forgets
While the Hollywood sun sets behind your back
And can't the band play on?
Just listen, they play my song

Ash to ash
Dust to dust
Fade to black

chorus

Dance little tin goddess
da, da, da.....
