Repeat Bridge 1 again, then following into the intro again as for the first verse

    I was standing on the landing
    Now I'm standing in the hall
    Looking up....up up up up

    Won't someone assist me
    Solve this mystery
    Somebody assist me
    Arrange the symmetry...


After verse above play -

E--0--0--0--0---|-0--0--0--0---|-0--0--0--0---|-0--0--0--0--
B---1--1--3--3--|--1--1--3--3--|--1--1--3--3--|--1--1--1--1-

D---------------|--------------|--------------|-------------
A---------------|--------------|--------------|-------------
E---------------|--------------|--------------|-------------

Then go straight into the main riff again


    Muffled footsteps on the carpet
    Spiral steps start spinning
    Around...me

**Follow with the same bridge and main intro riff throughout the rest of the song where needed, you should listen to the song for the timing - its basicaly the same sequence all the way though the song**

    Which floor which ceiling
    You're off balance
    Which floor which ceiling
    It's all upside down


Yes.. you guessed, main riff again


    Staircase lying face up
    Staircat sat on the mat looking down
    Looking down....down

This is a gd tab although the song is called the staircase mystery. And in the main riff with the louder guitar I think he slides the Amin chord up and down the neck in between playing it. Its also missing some muted rakes and stuff but thats just nitpicking. Overall a gd tab...
