One of my favorite Manson songs and it has a really cool bassline.

Twiggy doesn't play anything during the post-chorus and the I'm Not Mechanical part. The
verses are the same throughout the rest of the song and Twiggy does minor things here
and there but that's basically it until the outro.

OUTRO: 3:45

Here is where other people go a little wrong in their tabs for the outro. Contrary to
popular opinion, in the album version, Twiggy doesn't play the same riff as the guitar. A
little messing around and close listening I figured out what he was playing and I'm 
99.9% positive this is it.

I'll add the live outro. It's easier if you have trouble sliding and it's just a little
variation that Twiggy plays of the guitar part and the bass.
