This is my favorite song! Just like a lot of other Staind songs, this song is on a
baritone guitar. But like my other tabs for Staind songs, this tab is in Drop-Db.

PM - palm mute
PM_| - palm mute until the end of the line (_)
PH - pinch harmonic
p - pull-off
b - bend a full step (2 frets worth)
r - release bend
b-r - bend, hold, then release
h - hammer-on
T - tap
/ - slide up

Being the god Mike Mushok is, this part is actually incredibly hard. But to make it 
easier, just go back and forth like this a bunch of times:

Lyrics/Order
-INTRO-
-VERSE 1-
The hating, and the waiting, hesitating,
I just want to be done with you.
Faking for the taking.
And I'm waking up to the fact
That you're lying and denying
Justifying all the actions you take.
It's pathetic, it's poetic.
IT'S JUST SICK!
IT'S JUST SICK!
-CHORUS-
Is compromise something you don't understand?
You force your hand but my eyes are wide open.
Caught in the web of your self-serving plan,
Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open.
-VERSE 2-
Seeing is believing, now I'm leaving.
All the damage is done
And you've broken any notion of trust
Because you're lying and denying
Justifying all the actions you take.
It's pathetic, not poetic.
IT'S JUST SICK!
IT'S JUST SICK!
-CHORUS-
Is compromise something you don't understand?
You force your hand but my eyes are wide open.
Caught in the web of your self-serving plan,
Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open.
-BRIDGE-
Seeing is believing, now I'm leaving.
All the damage is done.
All the damage DONE!
-SOLO-
ALL THE DAMAGE DONE!
-CHORUS-
Is compromise something you don't understand?
You force your hand but my eyes are wide open.
Caught in the web of your self-serving plan,
Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open.
Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open.
FORCE MY HAND!
When my eyes are wide open.
-OUTRO-
The lying and denying,
IT'S JUST SICK!
The lying and denying,
IT'S JUST SICK!

Hey man, like the tab. I'd just like to note that I play the intro slightly different, which makes it easier for me to transition between the chords.

This might be useful for others. Otherwise, nice tab.

The song's tuned to F# C# G# C# F# A# (played live on a baritone 7-string with a high D#). The main riff is played in the 7th position on the bottom 3 strings, alternating chords between the 4th and 5th and the 5th and 6th strings.
