ok, heres the weird part, right here they drop the low Eb down to Db they use D-tuners
but the way i do it is pluck the Eb and the Db together and just match the Eb to the 
tone of the Db. the rest of the song uses this alternate tuning

thats the music, you have yo figure out how many times to play each riff.
i put the lyrics in here too.

Lyrics:
I try to imagine the best place I've been
Can I go back again?
Open my eyes, what was no longer exists,
I can't go back again
I like to pretend that nothing has changed
And never went too far
But it started to lose me like a four-hour movie
I'd already seen
Holding onto my memory of what this used to be
Holding onto my memory of you

Sometimes I tell myself that things are O.K.
Another lie but it makes me feel better
Never as old as I was today
I'm gonna breakdown

In American Pompeii
In American Pompeii
Break myself just to live this way
Never as old, as I was today
American Pompeii

Look in my eyes and see how sick I feel 
About what you've become
Filthy and twisted like you never existed
I know what you were
Your beauty forgotten under mountains of schism
I don't want to climb
Giving up my memory of what this used to be
Giving up my memory of you

Sometimes I tell myself that things are O.K.
Another lie but it makes me feel better
Never as old as I was today 
I'm gonna breakdown

In American Pompeii
In American Pompeii
Break myself just to live this way
Never as old, as I was today
American Pompeii

Try to imagine the best place I've been
Can I go back again
Open my eyes it just no longer exists
I can't go back again
I'm giving up my memory of what this used to be 
Giving up my memory of you
