This is the studio version of Megalomaniac off the new Incubus record,
NOT the live Lollapalooza version.

Hope this is close enough =)

[Intro]

E---------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------|
G--0--0--0--0--0--0--0------------------------------|
D--5--5--5--5--5--5^-5------------------------------|

G--10-12---------12---------12----------12----12---|----------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------|--12p10---------------|
A--------------------------------------------------|----------------------|

Part A

E--------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------------|
D--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|
A--------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------|
