Author's notes
=====================
September 2014 Update: Seeing as this is a popular tab, I decided to take some feedback and make some 
changes. I added lyrics, changed the key, and fixed some wrong notes. 

Tuning/Key Notes: Please stop saying this is in drop D. It's not. 

Originally, this tab was posted in drop B tuning. Now, I see that the lowest note played 
during the song is a low C power chord during the chorus. Therefore, the entire tab has been updated to
drop C tuning. For those wanting to play it in Drop D: please find another tab. The correct way to play 
this song IS drop C. That is how Skillet plays both in the recording and live. Drop D forces you to play a 
high C power chord during the chorus, which sounds quite bad when you play it. 

21 Fret Guitars: The 2014 update should make it easier to play for those with six-string, 22 fret guitars. 
For those with 21 frets, you will still not be able to play the whole solo.
