    ____________________
   / System of a Down  /  I think this song is about a deeply drug-addicted person,
  / Streamline        /  who has lost his love as he let it down. The drugs made him
 / Steal This Album! /  blind ('snow'-blind) and he couldn't pull himself out of the
/___________________/  addiction, which eventually left him alone.

I've added a few finger indications (which finger to use) below the tab charts
to help newcomers (the few newcomers who can cut through the clutter, of course):
   1 = Index finger
   2 = Middle finger
   3 = Ring finger
   4 = Pinky finger
   T = Thumb (not used in this song, anyways)
Note that the finger indications (as well as the chords) are only displayed the first
time the particular riff is displayed.

  I wasn't there for you
  I wasn't there for you

  I know weather's gonna be fine
  But I can't see you cross the streamline
  My love waits for me in daytime
  But I can't see you through the snowblind

  You are gone
  I wasn't there for you
  Goodbyes are long
  I wasn't there for you
  Goodbye

  I know time reveals in hindsight
  I can wrestle with the stormy night
  Because your love lasts a lifetime
  But I can't see you through the snowblind

  I wasn't there for you, I wasn't there
  I wasn't there for you
  I wasn't there for you

  You are gone
  I wasn't there for you
  Goodbyes are long
  I wasn't there for you
  Goodbye
  Goodbye
