Haven't quite figure out the part between this Chorus and the Verse yet.
Working on it.
But, after that riff it continues into this:

Verse 2:
E|----------------------||
B|----------------------||
G|----------------------||
D|-14~--13~--14~--14~---|| 2X
A|----------------------||
E|----------------------||

E|--------------------------------||
B|--------------------------------||
G|-------------9\----8------------||
D|-7\----7\----9\----9----10--9---||
A|-7\----7\----7\----6-----x--x---||
E|-5\----5\----------------8--7---||

E|----------------------------||
B|----------------------------||
G|-------------9\----8--------||
D|-7\----7\----9\----9--------||
A|-7\----7\----7\----6--------||
E|-5\----5\-------------------||

Chorus Again
Then

E|----------------||
B|----------------||
G|-----------1~---||
D|-3---------2~---|| After this it's a lot of static and effects
A|-3---------2~---|| leading into next part.
E|-1---------0~---||

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------||
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G|-9---9---9---9---9---9---11---11---8---8---8---8---9---11---11---11-----||
D|---9---9---9---9---9---9----9----9---9---9---9---9---9----9----9----9---||
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------||
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------||
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G|-9---9---9---9---11---11---12---12---8---8---8---8---11---11---11---11---||
D|---9---9---9---9----9----9----9----9---9---9---9---9----9----9----9----9-||
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------||
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------||

Then pretty much the same as above except turn them into pairs:
E|-------------------||
B|-------------------||
G|-8---9---11---12---|| You figure out order and rhythm.
D|-9---9----9----9---|| It's not very hard to do.
A|-------------------||
E|-------------------||

E|----------------------------------------------||
B|----------------------------------------------||
G|----------------------------------------------||
D|-2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2----2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2---||

E|-0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0----0-0-0---0-0-0---||
   . . .   . . .   . .    . . .   . . .

Not quite sure on next riff yet.

Back to Chorus Riff Again

End song on:
E|--------------------------||
B|-------------------[12]---||
G|-------------------[12]---||
D|-3-3-3----3-3-3-----------||
A|-3-3-3----3-3-3-----------||
E|-1-1-1----1-1-1-----------||
   . .      . .

I'll look into it. FYI, in the chorus, I made a typo, that first tapping is supposed to be at the 7th fret, not the 6th. And when you hit the 2nd and 3rd Choruses of the song, the second time through, instead of playing the 4 and 7 on the B, you jump up to 5 and 8 on the E string.

Can somebody make a video of themselves covering this song, using these exact tabs? It'd be very much appreciated!
