PLEASE READ:

MCR's new sound incorporates quite a lot of dubbed guitars in order to get 
that Bryan May esque sort of sound in the lead. I've tried my best to tab all 
the guitar parts, but there is only one part that your lead guitarist should 
concern himself with. But, if you have more than two guitarists then thats 
great!

UPDATE - added lyrics for easier following

   " He said, Son when you grow up, will you be the saviour of the broken, 
     The beaten and the damned? 
     He said Will you defeat them, your demons, and all the non believers, 
     the plans that they have made?
     Because one day I leave you, A phantom to lead you in the summer, 
     To join the black parade. "



((( Then comes the May-esque Riff. Your lead guitarist need only concern 
    himself with guitar [3], guitars [4] and[5] will only be really used 
    if you have a ridiculous amount of guitarists, or you're recording it.

    To get a good sound with guitars [3] to [5], I would suggest using the
    neck pickup with tone all the way down at zero                        )))
