Tabbed by: Toenang

This is how I play the song, and to me it sounds correct. Check my cover:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kipXHcupT4M

Tuning: Drop C (tune lower E-string down to C)

Required equipment (apart from guitar and amp): 

- Pitch-shifting pedal controllable via MIDI (I use a Digitech Whammy IV)
- MIDI-USB cable
- Audio-processing program on PC (I use Cubase 5)
- Lots and lots of distortion
- A Cubase file that controls the Pitch shifting pedal (send me a mail if you need it)

Edit: added lyrics


1) Intro:
e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|---5----|
A|---3----|
C|--------|   Play 4 times, let it ring


2) Riff:
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|---0-------------|---3-------------|---8-------------|---5-------------|| x 4


3) Now comes the harder part, I suggest you downstrum this the whole time 
synchronous to the rythm (so strum more than once, unlike the way I tabbed it):
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-------------3---||
G|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5---------5---||
D|---x-------------|---x-------------|---6-------------|---3---------3---||
A|---3-------------|---6-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||


e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|---4-------------|---4-------------|---4-------------|---6-------------||
G|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------||
D|---x-------------|---x-------------|---6-------------|---3-------------||
A|---3-------------|---6-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||

This riff is played 3 consecutive times, Matt starts singing when you play the 
riff for the second time.
There is a slight difference each time you play the riff, the first time you play 
the above, then you play:


Second play:
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-------------3---||
G|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5---------5---||
D|---x-------------|---x-------------|---6-------------|---3---------3---||
A|---3-------------|---6-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
  "Fear...                        ...and panic in the air,   I want to be
   Life...                    ...will flash before our eyes, so scattered and 


e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|---4-------------|---4-------------|---4-------------|---6---------4---||
G|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5---------5---||
D|---x-------------|---x-------------|---6-------------|---3---------3---||
A|---3-------------|---6-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
  free...                            ...from desolation and despair. And I                        
  lost...                        ...I want to touch the other side. And no 


The third and final time you play:
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-------------3---||
G|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5---------5---||
D|---x-------------|---x-------------|---6-------------|---3---------3---||
A|---3-------------|---6-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
  fear...          ...like everything I sow...          ...is being swept 
  one...           ...thinks they are to blame,              why can't we 


e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|---4-------------|---4-------------|---4-------------|---4-------------||
G|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------||
D|---x-------------|---x-------------|---6-------------|---3-------------||
A|---3-------------|---6-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|| 
  away.                     Well I refuse to let you go.   I can't get it
  see...                  When we bleed we bleed the same. I can't get it


After this go straight into (hardest part of the song):
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|---4--------3----|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
G|---x--------x--5-|---7--------5----|-----------------|-----------------||
D|---x--------x--x-|---x--------x--8-|---10-------8--6-|---6--------5--5-||
A|---3--------3--3-|---6--------6--6-|---6--------6--3-|---3--------3--3-||
C|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|| x2
  right...                                                         Get it
  right...                                             ...since I met you.


4) Now you can rest a bit playing this:
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|---0-------------|---3-------------|---8-------------|---5-------------|| x 4
  Loneliness...                    ...be over.                When will this
  loneliness...                    ...be over?


5) Interlude:
e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|--------|
A|--------|
C|---0----| x 4


6) And then repeat part 3 all over again, then instead of playing part 4, play:
e|---3-------------|---3-------------|---4-------------|---4-------------||
B|---4-------------|---4-------------|---4-------------|---6-------------||
G|---5-------------|---3-------------|---5-------------|---5-------------||
D|---5-------------|---5-------------|---6-------------|---3-------------||
A|---3-------------|---6-------------|---6-------------|---x-------------||
C|---x-------------|---x-------------|---x-------------|---x-------------|| x4
  Loneliness...                    ...be over.                When will this
  loneliness...                    ...be over?
 

When Matt repeats his line, change the pattern back to:
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
C|---0-------------|---3-------------|---8-------------|---5-------------|| x 4
  Loneliness...                    ...be over.                When will this
  loneliness...                    ...be over?"


7) Finale:
e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|--------|
A|--------|
C|---0----| x 4

Hey mate !

Very nice work with that tab, it'd be perfect for me if I had the cubase file, hehe
Any chance you send it to me ? I have cubase 4, you think it'd be a problem ?

Thanks
