Lyrics:

Last round
Looks like I'm in for a fight
Knocked down
There is nowhere left to hide
Stick 'n' move
When I try to run away
Old one two
I only end up face to face  

Mirror mirror getting clearer

Chours:
It's just me and my shadow
Dancing round the ring
I try to fight it
But then how can I win
When I'm only shadow boxing

Time out
I'm looking for a
Standing eight
No doubt 
My inside has come out to play
Bob 'n' Weave

It's conscious of my
Every move
Been deceived
Can no longer ignore the truth

Mirror mirror getting clearer
Split decisin blur my vision

Nice tab.. havent tried the solo yet, but just one blemish so far...
The "bridge" riff is tabbed one fret lower than it should be.
Where it says 4, 3, & 2.. use frets 5,4 & 3.

Otherwise, great!

Well in my opinion the verse should rather be:

|---------------------------------------------------------
|---12--13--12-12---10--------12---10--h12---10-----------
|---13--14--13-12---10--------12---10--h12---10-----------
|------------------------12\-----------------------10--h12
|---------------------------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------------------

Sounds more like the original riff. I hope thats helpful...
