The --3(b3.5)r3(b3.5)-- bit means pick at 3, bend it so the tone matches
what would be half way between 3 and 4, release the bend, and repeat, so
you pick on the third and fourth beats of that bar.  Easy innit? :)

It may not be 100% accurate, but it's a good approximation anyway :)

Lyrics:
------
  Duck you under
  Deep salt water
  Bring me lover
  All your power 
  I'll be no hell
  Out of your spell
  Over, under
  Die of pleasure

("guitar w/fuzz" bit)

  Hear my dreaming
  You'll be drowning
  Hell's no god above
  All drunk on my love

("chorus" bits)

  You oughtta hear my long snake
  Moan!
  You oughtta see me crawl my
  Moan!

("guitar w/distortion" bit)

  Duck you under
  Deep salt water
  In my dreaming
  You'll be drowning
  Raise me up lord
  Call me Lazarus
  Hey lord help me
  Make me my fail

  You oughtta hear my long snake
  Moan!
  You oughtta see me crawl my...
  Moan!

  it's my voodoo working   (x4)

  moan! (x4)
  woo!
  moan! (x3)
