This is the most kickass RJA song!!! that has a length of 7:40, so long!!!
I'm going to cover this song and post it on youtube!!! this song is originally
played in Drop C. I just converted it to Standard EADGBe for the lazy people
who are too lazy to tune their guitars. Sounds decent too!!! Their Lead Guitarist
named ELIAS used different MeTALLIC EFECTS in this song, I tabbed them too!!!

Disregarding my absence of memories
Eb                               Bb/D

Eb              Bb/D      Cm
  as I try to scale these walls
        G#     (metallic riff 4)
Jericho falls around me

The song is definitely in Drop C, so that kinda throws the whole tab off. A lot of the tablature is pretty off too, but nothing that can't be fixed!

I want to post or [tab]
