A|-2--2--------2-2--------6--6--6-------6--7-7--7-9-|
E|-0--0------0------------4--4--4-------4--5-5--5-7-|

Chorus:

Basicly just repeat the intro, but keep the ringing low E chord
at the begining till the speed part comes in.

Interlude:

just mess with these chords, you'll hear the changes

e|-0---0(3)--0(4)--0(3)-|
B|-0---3-----0(4)--3----|
G|-1---2-----*-----2----|
D|-2---0-----6-----0----|
A|-2---0-----6-----0----|
E|-0---2-----4-----2----|

Now the fingerings in brackets are little parts you can hear
Alex mess with, there optionals. (and the 3rd chord isn't right
but it's close)

  ===================
  =Do the Verse riff=
  ===================

  Then intro thing a couple times

Then this bitchy thing:
  
|-7-5-4-2-4-2-0-----------------|-----------------|
|---------------4-5-4-2-4P2P0---|---4-2-0---------|
|-----------------------------0-|---------4-5-4-2-|

E|-0-2-3-4-------------------|      |
                                    |
Then Reggae:                        |==== it alternates twice
                                    |     between the two
e|-4---5---7-----------------|      |
