EGDGBe tuning

I tuned the A string down to G and it seems to work. I know its a strange
tuning but check it all out & judge for yourself. Several parts are 
very similar with some rhythm variation. Please rate & comment.

"Come, alone and alive
You're afraid but that's not what I asked
Why not go for a ride?
Sharpen your teeth my darlings
Sharpen your minds
Take a finger off the hand
Seize your shit, take one scalp at a time"

Play Verse Riff again

Lyrics:
"Fans, they're as big as the wind
Like a canine that chases the bone
That's tied to it's tail
I wish, I was a beautiful balloon
I could rise up, above it all
And fade out of view.
Gracefully fade out of view
What have you turned into?"

The reason the G works so well is because the tuning is open G, like Elephants.

That's just it, The low E would be tuned to D if I was playing the open G tuning. They play the ending of this song with a droning E during the higher fretwork, so just tuning the A to G will be best.
