Best song off Wiretap Scars in my opinion. Some parts of this song are
a little sketchy, but I think it's a pretty faithful tab.

Intro (some kind of effect, light p.m.)
e------------------------------|
B------------------------------|
G--------17-------17----17-----|
D--15-15----15-15----15--------|
A------------------------------|
D------------------------------|

Intro cont. (light distortion)
e--------------13------11------11--10---------|
B-------------------------------------11----11|
G--12--15--12------12------12------------12---|   X 4
D---------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------|

When Jim starts singing, this repats for the verse, but with slight alterations.
The above is done 2 times instead of 4, then on the last two, everything is moved
on the lower strings:

Verse
e-------------13----11----11--10------------|
B--------------------------------11----11---|
G-12--15--12-----12----12-----------12------| X 2
D-------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------|

Verse cont.
e-----------------------------10------------|
B-------------13----11----11-----11----11---|
G-----------------------------------12------| X 2

Pre Chorus

   "Stand back, fall apart, and the trouble starts...."

Chorus (distortion)Not sure about this part.....

This tab is pretty close to the song, and I agree that this is the best song on Wiretap scars.. such a shame that ATDI split...
