This is the last track on Hell Below/Stars Above, and it's probably the best
song on the cd. There's 2 guitarists here, and both guitars tune standard, EADGBe. 


Guitar 1 (Todd): 

Start out the song holding an open E chord(0-2-2-1-0-0) and knock on the body of
the guitar, making that cool ringing sound. Listen to the song to get the timing and such. 
Here's the main part of the song, played gently (slightly muted too)for the first
half of the verse and normal for the second half:
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------6-6-------------------------------6-6----------------
D-----2-2-2-2-2-2-2/-6--6-6-7-7----7-7/-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\-7--6-6-6-6---6-6\-----
A-----2-2-2-2-2-2-2/-6--4-4-7-7----7-7/-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\-7--4-4-6-6---6-6\-----
E-----0-0-0-0-0-0-0/-4------5-5----5-5/-7-7-7-7-7-7-7\-5------4-4---4-4\-----

Just listen to the song to get the exact rhythm down

Play during the chorus ("catch that light...") :
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D--------11--11---9-9---2----2-2/--11--11---9-9---2----2-2/------------------
A--------11--11---9-9---2----2-2/--11--11---9-9---2----2-2/------------------
E--------9---9----7-7---0----0-0/--9---9----7-7---0----0-0/------------------

e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D--------11--11---9-9---2--2/7--7-7/--11--11---9-9---2-----------------------
A--------11--11---9-9---2--2/7--7-7/--11--11---9-9---2-----------------------
E--------9---9----7-7---0--0/5--5-5/--9---9----7-7---0-----------------------

Let that last E power chord lead into the verses, and let it ring for a while the
last time you play it (the start of the interlude).

Interlude (before the solo):
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D-------------------------6--7-------6h7-9---7p6---------------x\------------
A------------7~(let ring)------------------------9~------------x\------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------

After that just play the main verse part 4 times during the solo and then the
chorus. The song ends with the open E chord tapping like before.


Guitar 2 (Clark):

Opening: play this on the high e string:
e-------12p11---12p11---12p11---12p11--(OR)---12(whammy)-etc.----------------

Intro solo:
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-----8h9-8h9-11~9-----------------8h9-11~~-9p8------8----8---8--------------
D------------------9-11b13r11~~~~---------------11-----9----6---7------------
A-----------------------------------------------------------------6h9-7------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------

e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------9h10p9--12-9---10p9\--------------
G-----8h9-8h9-11~9-----------------8h9-11~~----------------------------------
D------------------9-11b13r11~~~~--------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------------------6/7-9-7~-----
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Second half of verses("I hate these walls..." and "when you're gone..."):
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-----8h9-8h9-9p8~~~~~~~~~~------------8h9p8---------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------9\-6~(dive)--------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------

e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------9h10p9-12-9-10p9-10p9-----------
G-----8h9-8h9-9p8~~~~~~~~~~-----------8h9-11----------------------11p9-----9-
D---------------------------------------------------------------------11p9---
A----------------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Chorus ("catch that light..."):
e-----------------------------------------------------12/14\12---------------
B-----------------------------------------------9----------------------------
G---------------9--------------------------9------11-9-----------------------
D-----11---9-11---11-------------11---9-11---11------------------------------

E-----------------------------12---------------------------------------------

B----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G---------------9------------------------------------------------------------
D-----11---9-11---11---------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------11----9----9------------------------------------------
E------------------------------12---7/-9~~~~7~~~~~0--(let ring)--------------

During the interlude play the same as the opening(on the high e string).

Solo:
e---14\12-129----------------------------------------------------------------

That's all!

LYRICS:
In the middle of a house,
In the middle of nowhere,
Bodies glide from room to room.
I hate these walls--
They speak to me;
Hey, skin like a doll, you're no friend,
Of the family.

Chorus:
Catch that light,
It falls in subtle patterns;
Crawls in, and tells them when their time is up,
And when it's over...

He takes her hand,
And he kisses her cheek;
She's a doll, oh yeah, she's his,
Spitting image;
When you're gone,
You're still a part of me,
Hey skin like a doll you're no friend,
Of the family.

Chorus

When it's over....
Now it's over.

Chorus

When you're gone...
You're still a part of me.
