Tabbed by:nirvana4lf
Email:nirvana4lf@gmail.com

This is off of the new SoaD album, Hypnotize. I got it leaked so i have it tabbed before 
cd's release (Nov. 22nd).
I did this all by ear so im sorry if there is something that isnt 100% perfect, but this is pretty good.
Enjoy!

awesome tab man definately five stars! so far there are only two tabs for this song and one doesn't even have the prechorus long enough so it ends before the actual one finishes. This one is right! Good tab!
