while playing.

Here's the little solo that Brent does at the beginning. Bill is still playing the intro riff too.

The last 10 on the F string just keep bending until the main riff comes in.

And now here comes one of the most badass riffs in history.
You play this riff a couple times I think 4.

D: -6-6-6--0--3-6--0--2-5--0--3-6--0--2---------------------------|

After the main riff it goes back to Bill playing the intro, and Brent doing the solo. 
Then you play the main riff reguraly about 3 times, and the 4th time you play this.

D: -------------------------------------------------------------------|
A: -------------------------------------------------------------------|
F: -------------------------------------------------------------------|
C: -------------------------------------------------------------------|
G: -5s8-8-8-8--4s7--7--4s5-5-5-5--8-8-8-----5-8---4-7-----5-8----4----|
D: -3s6-6-6-6--2s5--5--2s3-3-3-3--6-6-6--0--3-6-0-2-5--0--3-6--0-2----|

You play that a couple times then it goes into Troy singing, while you play this.

Here's Brent's part

D: --------------------------------------------------------------|

Then you play the verse and chorus a couple more times, then you play the solo which 
goes like this. You play each part twice and that's the solo.

D: -12--------12---------------------0----------------0---------------|
A: -15b-------15b--------------12---------------12---------12---------|
F: -----------------------9s10----10---10--9s10----10------14b--------|

F: -14b-------------------------------------------------------------|
C: ------9--7--9s10-----9--7---9s10----9----------------------------|
G: -----------------------------------------------------------------|
D: ----------------------------------------0------------------------|

Here's the interlude that's played behind the solo.


D: -----------------------------------------------------|
A: -----------------------------------------------------|
F: -----------------------------------------------------|
C: -2--------2-------2--3--3---2---0--------------------|
G: -2----2---2---2---2--3--3---2---0--------------------|
D: ------0-------0--------------------------------------|

And here's the outro

D: --------------------------------------------------------------|
A: --------------------------------------------------------------|
F: --------------------------------------------------------------|
C: -10------------------------10---7----10--10--7----------------|
G: -8--------------------------8---5----8---8---9----------------|
D: -----0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0----0----0----0--------------------------|

D: -------0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0----0----0-----0---5--5--4--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|


D: ----------------------------------------------------------------|
A: ----------------------------------------------------------------|
F: ----------------------------------------------------------------|
C: ----10----7----10---10--9------------------7-8-10-8-10-8--------|
G: ----8-----5----8----8---7--7-8-10-8-10-10----------------10-10--|
D: -0------0----0--------------------------------------------------|

D: --------------------------------------------------------------|
A: --------------------------------------------------------------|
F: --------------------------------------------------------------|
C: -8-8-8-8-8--8-------------------------------------------------|
G: ------------10------------------------------------------------|
D: --------------------------------------------------------------|

Then you play the beginning to the outro again then this

D: -----------------------------------------------------------------|
A: -----------------------------------------------------------------|
F: ------------------9-10--12-10-12-10s7--8-10-8-10-10--------------|
C: -9-10-12-10-12-12-----------------------------------10-----------|
G: ----------------------------------------------------8------------|
D: -----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then you play the whole outro again along with the fast parts and the song ends with this

D: -------------------------------------------------------------|
A: -------------------------------------------------------------|
F: -------------------------------------------------------------|
C: -10--10--9---------------------------------------------------|
G: -8---8---7---------------------------------------------------|
D: -------------------------------------------------------------|

And as promised here are the lyrics

If I stand around
And watch them drown in a pool of gray
When we dive in, I can surely say there's feud with force
Am I in your way?
Please knock me down, can I help you in?
When I'm not around let us all be found in certain ways

Dear Mr. Queequeg, you have been informed your life's been saved
You are not a black-hearted vicious mess so it has been claimed
If this is the beast
Pulling us towards the east with mighty waves
Let us look inside
And pull out all your pride, you know it's up to us

Holding pasts in ash black earth
Bound by roots
Roots into sand
Grow towards the giver

There's an open wound
Placed upon my heart, in anger's rage
If we open up a spirit, a spirit that can bleed
Ahab the leading lad we can trust his obsession carries them
Meet us at the temple
Healing all the crippled, don't forget the maimed

Lower soul
Sent with gifts offering
Teeth of hope travel with
Child laid next to mother

Hey good job man, but there are a few minor errors. In the beginning Brent plays it:
12s13------12-----13-14

I also don't believe there are slides for the 10-11-10 part. The rest looks right, except for the end where he does the string bends on the 15th fret, that whole section is wrong, and Bill's part at the same time is also not exactly right, he just plays the G string on the 2nd fret, not G and C.

You should check out eyesnteeeth on Youtube, he shows you how to play loads of Mastodon songs perfectly. Also, for this song check out how Brent plays it in HD if you search for "Mastodon Seabeast HD Nottingham". It shows some good close ups.
