Hmm, I've just worked out how to play this song, and realised there was no perfect tab. 
I thought I'd have a go at making one. (This is my first time. ^_^)

Please refer to the song to get all of the timings right. (There's a load of complex 
which would be tedious and difficult to type up.)

Tuning: Half-Step Down. (Although I'll refer to standard tuning throughout this song.)

INTRO:        <--------------Main Riff------------------| (x2)
e|-10----|x-x|------------------------------------------|
B|-10----|x-x|------------------------------------------|
G|-0-----|x-x|------------------------------------------|
D|-7-----|x-x|------------------------------------------|
A|-8-----|x-x|-3-(x8)--5-(x3)--7-(x5)--10-(x8)--3-(x8---|
E|-------|x-x|-1-(x8)--3-(x3)--5-(x5)--8--(x8)--1-(x8---|

<-------Main Lick--------| (During the second time of the Riff)
e|-----5-3--|-----5-3----|
B|---------0|------------|
G|-2h5------|-2h5-----2--|
D|----------|------------|
A|----------|------------|
E|----------|------------|

There are two seperate guitar parts (one plays Riff and the other Lick,) but if you were 
play this on your own I suggest playing one Riff and one Lick.

VERSE 1 (part 1): Lasts two Main Riff lengths. Played as silent, but I suggest playing 
heavily palm-muted if practicing alone to get the timing right.

VERSE 1 (part 2)*:
e|--------|---------|---------|---------|----------|
B|-----10-|------12-|------13-|------15-|-----10---|
G|---0----|----0----|----0----|----0----|---0------|
D|--------|---------|---------|---------|----------|
A|-8------|-10------|-12------|-14------|-8--------|
E|--------|---------|---------|---------|----------|
          |<---Fast,merged-------------------------|

CHORUS 1:

e|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------|

A|-3-(x8)--5-(x3)--7-(x5)--10-(x8)--3-(x8)|
E|-1-(x8)--3-(x3)--5-(x5)--8--(x8)--1-(x8)|

(OR/ WHILST)


e|-----5-3--|-----5-3--|
B|---------0|----------|
G|-2h5------|-2h5-----2|
D|----------|----------|
A|----------|----------|
E|----------|----------|

VERSE 2 (part 1): As with Verse 1 Part 1, palm mute main riff chords. (They seem more 
in this verse than the first verse.)

VERSE 2 (Part 2)*:
e|--------|---------|---------|---------|----------|
B|-----10-|------12-|------13-|------15-|-----10---|
G|---0----|----0----|----0----|----0----|---0------|

D|----------------------------------------|
A|-3-(x8)--5-(x3)--7-(x5)--10-(x8)--3-(x8)|

SOLO 1:
(Play Main Riff during solo)

e|-hb12-(x20)-----------------|-------17-15---|-------17-15---|
B|----------------------------|----13---------|----13---------|
G|-----------12-12-12//14-(x8)|-14----------16|-14---------14-|

e|-----------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-10-(x3)--9-(x3)--7-(x3)--5-(x2)--4--2---|
A|-8--(x3)--7-(x3)--5-(x3)--3-(x2)--2--0--5|
E|----------------------------------------3|

(KEYBOARD INTERLUDE)

(Play Main Riff again)

e|-hb12-(x20)-----------------|-hb15-(x20)------------------|
B|----------------------------|-----------------------------|
G|-----------12-12-12//14-(x8)|-----------12-12-12//14-(x8)-|
D|----------------------------|-----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|-----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|-----------------------------|

CHORUS 3:


e|----------------------------------------|  (x2)
B|----------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------|
A|-3-(x8)--5-(x3)--7-(x5)--10-(x8)--3-(x8)|
E|-1-(x8)--3-(x3)--5-(x5)--8--(x8)--1-(x8)|

(then there's an odd chord change after a one bar rest:)

e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|-5-(x6)--4-(x2)--2-(x6)------------------------|
A|-3-(x6)--2-(x2)--0-(x6)--5-(x2)--3-(x8)--5-(x8)|
E|-------------------------3-(x2)--1-(x8)--3-(x8)|

e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|-----------------------|
D|-5-(x6)--4-(x2)--2-(x8)|
A|-3-(x6)--2-(x2)--0-(x8)|
E|-----------------------|

The above then slides into either the main riff or the lick:

e|----------------------------------------|  (x3)
B|----------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------|
A|-3-(x8)--5-(x3)--7-(x5)--10-(x8)--3-(x8)|
E|-1-(x8)--3-(x3)--5-(x5)--8--(x8)--1-(x8)|

(OR/ WHILST)


e|-----5-3--|-----5-3--| (x3)
B|---------0|----------|
G|-2h5------|-2h5-----2|
D|----------|----------|
A|----------|----------|
E|----------|----------|


OUTRO:

e|-----------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-10-(x3)--9-(x3)--7-(x3)--5-(x2)--4--2---|
A|-8--(x3)--7-(x3)--5-(x3)--3-(x2)--2--0--5|
E|----------------------------------------3|


Enjoy!!!

the second measure of the solo should look like this:

|-------17-15----------|
|----13----------17-13-|
|-14----------16-------|
|----------------------|
|----------------------|
|----------------------|
