This is got to be Massive Attacks best song.
Use lot's of distortion and bass

This bass line is played throughout song

G|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------| Repeat
A|----------------------------|
E|---8--8--8--8-8-8--8--8--10-|

The first guitar part, which comes in after the vocals stop the first
time, is played like this a few times through before fading out.
(after the line "Bring me love") It then comes in again after the line
"Neutralize every man in sight"

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---15--15--15--15--etc----------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the second, distorted guitar part comes in after the previous part
has built up for a while, after the line "Love ya" is repeated a bunch
of times.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------5/-10---17\-8---5/-10---------------------------------------|
D|---10---5/-10---17\-8---5/-10---------------------------------------|
A|---10---3/-8----15\-6---3/-8----------------------------------------|
E|---8----------------------------------------------------------------|

The first time through you can kinda just play it like that, let the
chords ring out but the second time you kinda have to pick at it, I
suppose improvise and kinda hack at the chords, just hit random notes
and stuff, you've heard the song so you know what I mean, make it sound
messy. After the first time through there's this fill.

e|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|
G|---17\-X-X-X-X---17-17\-X-X-X--17\------|
D|---17\-X-X-X-X---17-17\-X-X-X--17\------|
A|---15\-X-X-X-X---15-15\-X-X-X--15\------|
E|-------X-X-X-X----------X-X-X-----------|

 Then after the second it just plays the high C;
e|--------|
B|--------|
G|---17---|
D|---17---|
A|---15---|
E|--------|

Then again in the verse there's just a heap of effects, lots of delay, reverb,
just kinda ambient noises etc.

Then after the line "Come from way above" the guitar comes in and follows the
bass

e|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------|
D|---10-10-10-101010-10-12--------------|
A|---10-10-10-101010-10-12--------------|
E|----8--8--8--8-8-8--8-10--------------|

What's here is good but it is missing a few things

Just play around in C minor or harmonic minor, easy as hell to sound good soloing over this song!
