[Pre-Chorus]

  Mick (it's there, but like i said, Jim's sound is louder)

E |-9======12======11======10=====----|
B |-X------X-------X-------X------\10-|
F#|-7======10======9=======8======\10-|
B |-------------------------------\10-|

You almost don't hear the slide, but it's there, you can hear it when you
separate left and right and slow down the tempo.

  Jim
C#|-----------------------------------------------|
G#|-----------------------------------------------|
E |-----------------------------------------------|
B |--------4*-5*~~~-----------------------4*-5*~~~|
F#|---------------------~-------------------------|
B |-2-2-3----------2-2-3---1*-2*~~~2-2-3----------|
PM.....          .....           .....

You barely hear two harmonics, but listen closely they are there.
The first one is short, don't let it ring, just let the second ring.

Lyrics:


[Intro]

GO!


[Verse 1]

Stapled shut - Inside an outside world And I'm 
sealed in tight - Bizarre but right at home 
I'm claustrophobic - Closing in And I'm 
catastrophic - Not again 
I'm smeared across the page and doused in gasoline 
I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene 
Catch me up in all your sordid little insurrections 
I've got no time to lose - I'm just caught up in all the cattle 


[Pre-Chorus]

Fray the strings... 
close the shades 
Hold your breath... 
Listen 


[Chorus] (x2)

I 
am a world before I am a man 
I 
was a creature before I could stand 
I 
will remember before I forget 
Before I forget that 

I 
am a world before I am a man 
I 
was a creature before I could stand 
I 
will remember before I forget 
Before I forget that

[Interlude]


[Verse 2]

I'm ripped across the ditch and settled in the dirt And I 
wear you like a stitch, yet I'm the one who's hurt 
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions 
I've got no right to win - I'm just caught up in all the battles 


[Pre-Chorus]

Locked in clutch...
pushed in place...
Hold your breath...
Listen!!!


[Chorus] (x2)

I 
am a world before I am a man 
I 
was a creature before I could stand 
I 
will remember before I forget 
Before I forget that!!!!

I 
am a world before I am a man 
I 
was a creature before I could stand 
I 
will remember before I forget 
Before I forget that!!!!


[Solo]

My end, 
it justifies my means 
All I ever do is delay 
My every attempt to evade 
The end of the road and my end 
It justifies my means 
All I ever do is delay 
My every attempt to evade 
THE END OF THE ROAD!!!!!


[Chorus] (x3)

I 
am a world before I am a man 
I 
was a creature before I could stand 
I 
will remember before I forget 
Before I forget that

I 
am a world before I am a man 
I 
was a creature before I could stand 
I 
will remember before I forget 
Before I forget that

I 
am a world before I am a man 
I 
was a creature before I could stand 
I 
will remember before I forget 
Before I forget that


[Outro]

Yeah Yeah Yeah YeAh Yeah Yeah Yeah
OHHHH

Some parts are correct, some parts are wrong. But the parts that are wrong are things that are very minute, and not thatbig of a deal. 4*
