The tuning is Drop D, tuned 1 more whole step down (C G C F A D).You'll have to listen
to the song to  hear how to place everything.Timing isn't exact, but I tried
getting it close.Listen to the song 

to get it exact.

 When James starts singing "We the people" you play this:

B|----------------|---------------|
G|----------------|---------------|
D|----------------|---------------|
A|----------------|---------------|
E|-3-5-0-0-3-5-0--|-3-5-0-0-3-5-0-|

 After James says "Are we the people?" play this mixed with the riff above:
e|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
B|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
G|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
D|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|
A|----------------|---------------|---------------|----------------|

A|----------------|---------------|---------------|
E|-0-0-3-5-0------|-0-3-5-0-------|-0-3-5-0-3-5---|

Play this when James is singing the stuff like 
"This is the Cloud that swallows trust"

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|----------------|
E|-3-5-5-3-5-5----|

I don't know what to play when the guys are chanting "Ominous I'm in us".

This is the ending riff that I think is hilarious:

e|-12h17-12h17----|-12-12-12h17----|-12h17-12------|
B|-12h17-12h17----|-12-12-12h17----|-12h17-12------|
G|----------------|----------------|---------------|(2x)
D|----------------|----------------|---------------|
A|----------------|----------------|---------------|
E|----------------|----------------|---------------|

That's it, listen to the song to figure out the whole placement, 
what a way to end such a heavy song eh?If you know the riff to 
when the boys are chanting E-Mail it to me.XxStMetalxX@hotmail.com
