We can leave this place and run away
We can leave this place and run away

Suggestion from Jason (Stellerclear@aol.com)

hey i think i found an easier way to play this....just my opinion though,,,
its on this riff

e|----------6---|
B|-----6--------|
G|---3---3------|       
D|-5------------|

I think it should be:
e|--------------6-------|
b|-------6--------------|  so all you have to do is lift up and 
g|--0-------------------|  finger and change picking from the other chord
d|----8-----8-----------|

    later

D#
why there is no perfect place

F
I say i know this is true

then

these chords 4x each

e|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|-7--6--4--2--|
D|-8--7--5--3--|
A|-8--7--5--3--|
E|-6--5--3--1--|


do all that twice, then this is the faster part:

e|----------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------|
G|-3-3--3--5-5--5--7-7--7--8-8-7-5--------------|
D|-3-3--3--5-5--5--7-7--7--8-8-7-5--------------|
A|-1-1--1--3-3--3--5-5--5--6-6-5-3--------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

that is all the riffs, you can sort them out yourself.
