Song: The Killing Lights
Artist: AFI
Album: Decemberunderground (2006)
Tabbed by: dont_fake_it
Tuning: Standard

I saw there were some tabs for this song in flat tuning, so I posted this in standard 
because that’s how I figured it out, and it’s much easier. For me, at least. I tabbed it with
two guitars, but it’s fairly easy to play with one also. I’m about 95% sure most of this is right...
