     and gratitude?       They

black in here, blot out the sun and
Am            D                |

Great tab. I think (personally) the bridge instead of playing chords E and C, it should be E and EM. It sounds a wee bit more accurate that way. Cheers.

Cool, glad someone checked this out, even if my first rater is a self-proclaimed garbagefiend, and that it makes sense. I had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to represent/explain the riffs in the chorus. And this was really the only reason for my tab - to better explain what the other tabs were trying to say (it took me hours to mix tabs found on the web into a workable version and this was my concoction). I'll try out your bridge suggestion and update if I agree. Until then, cheers back at you!
