VERSE
Walking alone tonight
‘Cause I’ve only got room for two
Me and my burdened black heart
It’s all we know how to do

Yet I look for a bigger bang
Than the kind I continually see
Sick of all this inertia ow
Won’t you mend me?

Solo Part 1 (I set my auto-wah to a slow pace, but this is most likely Mike's gonkulator.)

Thanks for the nice tab of this song. It's sooo way much better than the first version (which sucked badly). 5 stars. ;-)

P.S.- Not to sound ignorant, but what in the heck is a "gonkulator"? (i am going on the asumption that it is some sort of an effects device.)

It is, but honestly I don't think it is the gonkulator. The gonkulator is a now discontinued effects pedal that Mike Einziger (Guitarist, you probably knew,) uses pretty widely...Listen to the main riff of "Glass" of the whole first minute of "Pendolous Threads," that's what it sounds like. But, I don't think it's his gonkulator anymore, I have no idea what it is.
