D A D G B E
Intro Acoustic Bit

E|----------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------10---------------------------|
D|-----------------10/12------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
D|10/12-0-3-0~~~~0~~~~~~~~~~10/12-0-3-0~~~~0-------0--|

This changes slightly in the second half of this section "Ain't got time to prove..." onwards.

E|----------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------10---------------------------|
D|-----------------10/12------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
D|10/12-0-3-0~~~~0~~~~~~~~~~10/12-0-5-0~~~~0-------0--|

At the same time as this changes a second guitar comes in playing some little two finger 
line as a bit of a call and response.

E|---------------------------------------------------|
B|--------10-----11-10-----------10--------10--------|
G|-----10-10-----12-10-----10/12-----------10-10-----|
D|-----12---------------------------12--------12-----|
A|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|

And then it turns out that the empire never ended and all hell breaks loose.



Heavy Heavy Riff

E||-------------------|---------------|---------------||
B||-------------------|---------------|---------------||
G||-------------------|---------------|---------------||
D||-------------------|---------------|---------------||
A||-------------------|---------------|---------------||
D||0-3-0-6-5-2-3-(x3)-|--0-3-0-6-6-0--|6-5-2-3-6-5-0--||

                      |   First Time  |  Second Time  |

This Only applies for the first time through, for the repeats it changes to this

E||-------------------|--------------------|---------------||
B||-------------------|--------------------|---------------||
G||-------------------|--------------------|---------------||
D||-------------------|--------------------|---------------||
A||-------------------|--------------------|---------------||
D||0-3-0-6-5-2-3-(x3)-|--0-3-0-6-6-0---0-3-|6-5-2-3-6-5-0--||

                      |     First Time     |  Second Time  |
                      |(Last two notes run |
                      |into the main first |
                      |    of the riff)    |



And Then Another Section (Leading to all of the things that pain is)

E||----------------------------------------||
B||----------------------------------------||
G||----------------------------------------||
D||12---------8-8---3-3---8-8---3-3--3--5--||  Twice
A||12--(x16)--8-8---3-3---8-8---3-3--3--5--||
D||12---------8-8---3-3---8-8---3-3--3--5--||

E||-----------------------------||
B||-----------------------------||
G||-----------------------------||  Twice
D||0---------8----3----8----3---||  Then repeat the last two chords
A||0--(x16)--8----3----8----3---||  for the "Pain is" bit
D||0---------8----3----8----3---||

During all off this power chord excitement Russell seems to be playing much the same as 
Kele but
with a different distortion and such. Different octave too possibly. Something like this anyway

E||--------------------------------||
B||--------------------------------||
G||5--------10--5---10--5---5---7--||
D||7--(x16)-8---3---8--------------||  Four times
A||--------------------------------||
D||--------------------------------||

On the third time through of that instead of hammering away on the E and C he throws in this

E||----------------||
B||6-6-5-5---------||
G||--------5-5-----||
D||------------7-7-||
A||----------------||
D||----------------||

And then for the actual "pain is" bit

E||---------------------------------------------------------------------||
B||---------------------------------------------------------------------||
G||7~~~5~~~7~~~10~~~7~~~5~~~7~~~10~~~15~~~14~~~15~~~17~~~15~~~14~~~17b19||
D||---------------------------------------------------------------------||
A||---------------------------------------------------------------------||
D||---------------------------------------------------------------------||

And then back to the heavy heavy angry Bloc Party riff for a bit before...



AAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH Someone ate all of Kele's Bran Flakes and now he's really mad.

Kele

E||--------------------------------------------||
B||--------------------------------------------||
G||--------------------------------------------||
D||--------------------------------------------||
A||--------------------------------------------||
D||0-10-12-0-10-12-0-10-12-0-10-12-10-12-10-12-||

Russell

E||-----------------------------||
B||3-----6------9-------10------||   Don't worry about getting the unison
G||5b7---8b10---11b13---12b14---||   bends spot on in tune. Just try to hit
D||-----------------------------||   guitar like you hate it and it stole
A||-----------------------------||   your girlfriend.
D||-----------------------------||

I wish all tabs were written like this ...

"And then it turns out the empire never ended, and all hell breaks loose"

Great stuff!
