{ Play part II again once for each of the following verses: }

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant to clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we arePart III:

{ Lyrics for this part: }

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star   like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are   how fragile we are

X\Y - Play fret X, slide down to fret Y
X/Y - Play fret X, slide up to fret Y
XhY - Play fret X and immediatly hammer-on to fret Y
XpY - Play fret X and immediatly pull-off to fret Y


Note:   Play parts II, III, V and VI using mostly Am (002210) and D7
      (000212) finger patterns to guide your left hand.
        It is often easier to press some extra strings than pressing only
      the ones you actually pick.

If you happen to find any mistakes, please share your corrections with all
of us! It sounds ok like this, though.

Enjoy!

I´m sorry, but this tab is wrong in some parts like the beguining of the second part, forth part and solo.

Man, its great work!!! Awesome!
I wish only if you could add the first two acords at the begining and at the end... I hear something in song, like a waves, maybe its bass guitar, it would be great if you post them, if you know what I mean!
Anyway, THANKS, it sounds nice on my acoustic guitar.
