Artist: Bad Religion
Song: To Another Abyss
Album: The Empire Strikes First

This an awesome song off The Empire Strikes First album that was a little
to difficult for me to just tab it, so I wrote out the chords to help you 
guys understand the song a little bit better. You'll need to listen to the
song to figure out the strumming patterns, but it's a very easy song to play.

Chords used in this song:

E|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|-------5----7----8----3-------|
D|--5----5----7----8----3----3--|
A|--5----3----5----6----1----3--|
E|--3------------------------1--|
    G    C    D    Eb   Bb   F

G                         C
Not long ago, and yet the image is so vague 
D     Eb            Bb        F
I hesitate to label it a memory
G                         C 
There was a show of local color and I felt astray
D           Eb           Bb            F
Cause I had nothing to offer but insufficiency 

Eb                       F
And you know that it's a bitch
         Eb                    F 
When you learn to scratch that itch 
   Eb               F
Of blatant fallibility
          Eb                F 
Sooner to some, but eventually
         Eb                  F 
All gets pointed in the same direction 
                Eb                     F
While the human masses and their vague conceptions
                Eb                F
Obliterate each other with impunity
        Eb                 F        D 
And you wonder, "What's in this for me?" 

               G  Bb  F
To another abyss 
          G  Bb  F
To no avail 
    G         Bb       F
The search is bound to fail 
D              G  Bb  F
To another abyss 
          G  Bb  F
To no avail 
   G      Bb      F
So long ago I set sail
       Eb               D 
And it chills me to the bone
         C        F         G  Eb  Bb  F   
That I'm so far away from home 
                G  Eb  Bb  F
To another abyss 

Post Chorus: Play 2x // b=bend // h=hammer on // p=pull off

E|-6b------------66-55-------------------|
B|-----8---8---6-------66--8-------------|
G|-------7---7---------------7--7h8p7-5--|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

   G                     C
So what should I do now? What should I celebrate? 
D      Eb                Bb            F
Given finite means and a penchant to depreciate
    G                    C 
How can I still avow and depend upon a state 
D          Eb             Bb              F
That cares nothing for my happiness, welfare, or fate? 

      Eb              F
And I know I can't explain
      Eb            F 
The commotion in my brain
       Eb          F 
Like a terrifying reality
       Eb                   F 
Deconstructed but inadequately
         Eb                  F 
All gets pointed in the same direction 
                Eb                     F
While the human masses and their vague conceptions
                Eb                F
Obliterate each other with impunity
      Eb        F               D
and release the weight of history

               G  Bb  F
To another abyss 
          G  Bb  F
To no avail 
    G         Bb       F
The search is bound to fail 
D              G  Bb  F
To another abyss 
          G  Bb  F
To no avail 
   G      Bb      F
So long ago I set sail
       Eb               D 
And it chills me to the bone
         C        F         G  Eb  Bb  F   
That I'm so far away from home 
                G  Eb  Bb  F
To another abyss 
   G      Eb    Bb     F  G  Eb  
So long ago, so long ago
          Bb    F  G  Eb  Bb  F
Oh, I set sail
        G                 Eb
And I'm struggling on the way
        Bb              F 
And I'm waiting for the day (to another abyss)
        G               Eb          Bb                 F  G  Eb 
And I'm looking for the way back home (to another abyss) 
   Bb      F
So far away (to another abyss)
   Bb      F                  G  Eb  Bb  F
So far away (to another abyss) 
                  G  Eb
(to another abyss) 
   Bb     F
So far away
                  G  Eb  Bb  F   End on: G
(to another abyss)

Good work, one suggestion though:
When written in chords, the G should be Gm to fit in with the harmonics of the song. This makes for a nice opportunity to play an acoustic version with full chords - especially when transposed three notes down to Em for a more managable chording and the nice, grandiose sound of open strings.
Thx a bunch!
