I just wanna say first off, I am so suprised that this site doesn't have one single tab 
this song, until now.  This song kicks alot of ass and it's not to hard to play.

Now Starts the Lyrics  2:42

If you look at your reflection in the bottom of the well
|---0----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|
|---0----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|
|---6----------------------------------|--6--------------------------------|
|---0----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|
|---8----------------------------------|--7--------------------------------|
|---0----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|

  What you see is only on the surface
|--0-----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|
|--0-----------------------------------|--4--------------------------------|
|--5-----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|
|--7-----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|
|--0-----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|
|--0-----------------------------------|--0--------------------------------|

When you try to see the meaning,    hidden underneath.
|--0---------------------------------|--0----------------------------------|
|--5---------------------------------|--0----------------------------------|
|--0---------------------------------|--6----------------------------------|
|--4---------------------------------|--4----------------------------------|
|--0---------------------------------|--0----------------------------------|
|--0---------------------------------|--0----------------------------------|

The measure of the depth can be deceiving
|-0-------------------------------|--4-----------4-----------------------|
|-0-------------------------------|--5-----------5-----------------------|
|-3-------------------------------|--0-----------6-----------------------|
|-5-------------------------------|--0-----------0-----------------------|
|-0-------------------------------|--0-----------0-----------------------|
|-0-------------------------------|--0-----------0-----------------------|

                                       The bottom has a rocky reputation
|--4-------------0---------------|-----------------------------------------|
|--5-------------5---------------|-----------------------------------------|
|--5-------------4---------------|-----------------------------------------|
|--0-------------0---------------|-----------------------------------------|
|--0-------------0---------------|-----------------------------------------|

|--3h5--5p3—-3p0-|--3/5---5---0-|-----5---3/5------------|
|--3h5--5p3--3p0-|--------------|------------------------|

You can feel in the distance,      the deeper down you stare.
|--0-----------------------------|---0-------------------------------------|
|--0-----------------------------|---0-------------------------------------|
|--6-----------------------------|---6-------------------------------------|
|--0-----------------------------|---0-------------------------------------|
|--8-----------------------------|---7-------------------------------------|
|--0-----------------------------|---0-------------------------------------|

  From up above it` s hard to see but   you know when you` re   there.
|-0---------------------------------|--0-----------------------------------|
|-0---------------------------------|--4-----------------------------------|
|-5---------------------------------|--3-----------------------------------|
|-7---------------------------------|--0-----------------------------------|
|-0---------------------------------|--0-----------------------------------|
|-0---------------------------------|--0-----------------------------------|

On the bottom words are shallow on the surface talk is cheap.
|---0--------------------------------|---0-----------------------------|
|---0--------------------------------|---0-----------------------------|
|---6--------------------------------|---6-----------------------------|
|---0--------------------------------|---0-----------------------------|
|---8--------------------------------|---7-----------------------------|
|---0--------------------------------|---0-----------------------------|

You can only judge the distance by the company you keep
|---0-------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|---0-------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|---3-------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|---5-------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|---0-------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|---0-------------------------------|--------------------------------------|

In the eyes of the confessor.

Here the song changes to standard tuning, but I don't know the solo.  Here's the rhythm 
anyways.
