 Thats pretty much the whole song, theres no solo in it and if you
can't figure out the rest of it from what Ive given you than you can't
play guitar.  Heres the lyrics...


[Verse 1]

I can't find the rhyme in all my reason.
Lost sense of time and all seasons.
Feel Ive been beaten down
by the words of men who have no grounds.
Can't sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
when your ax has cut the roots that feed them.
Forked tounges in bitter mouths
can drive a man to bleed from inside out.


[Chorus]

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?


[Verse 2]

I've seen the wicked fruit of your vine
destroy the man who lacks a strong mind.
Human pride sings a vengful song
inspired by the times you've been walked on.
My stage is shared by many millions
who lift their heads up high because they feel this.
We are one, we are strong.
The more you hold us down the more we press on.

REPEAT CHORUS:


[Bridge]

I know I can't hold the hate inside my mind,
what consumes your thoughts controls your life.
So I'll just ask a question,
a lonely simple question.
I'll just ask one question:
What if? What if? What if? etc.....

Ok, Anthony you did not tab this. The people at Hal Leonard did because you took it straight out of the Human Clay book. Nice try though and the interlude is real messed up.
