SONG: TIME IS RUNNING OUT
ARTIST: MUSE
ALBUM: ABSOLUTION

TUNING: STANDARD

I’ve seen other tabs for this on the net, but all the other ones aren’t really 
100% accurate to the studio recording and are really long and awkward to print 
off. This one should be more accurate and easier to use. 

No guitar in intro or verse, only bass plays. 

PRE-CHORUS
“And bury it...”

Btw, this is from the official tab book, so it should be 100% , i know you're not really meant to do that but, at least it save you some $$ =P

Urrm, on the studio recording as well as live there is guitar in the second part of the first verse, it starts at "you will be the death of me" this tab is excellent though, and it is very useful to have it a normal size, thx
