quiet -- by smashing pumpkins

Do several tremelo bends, down then up, 4x until the drum intro.

slide up      
then down     Riff 1
---------     --------------------------------------
---------     --------------------------------------
---------     --------------------------------------
---2/\---     --2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--7/9-9-9--
---2/\---     --2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--7/9-9-9--
---------     --0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--

Play Riff 1 4x as intro, 4x under verse
Play this chorus riff 3x then the held note ending:

-----------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------
--6-6-9-1----1--1-1--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4p2-2-2--2--4--
--6-6-9-2----2--2-2--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4p2-2-2--2--4--
--4-4-7-2----2--2-2--4\2-2-2--2--2-2--2-0-0-0--0--2--
--------0----0--0-0----------------------------------

                       hold   big slide
---------------------------   -------------
---------------------------   -------------
--6-6-9-1----1--1-1--6\4---   -------------
--6-6-9-2----2--2-2--6\4---   -(2)/(x)\(0)-
--4-4-7-2----2--2-2--4\2---   -(2)/(x)\(0)-
--------0----0--0-0--------   -(2)/(x)\(0)-


For the second verse, play the Riff 1 section 12x and then do the
chorus again, all the way through until the hold.

To get that harmonic sliding effect, place your finger above the
12th fret on the high E string and slide down slowly, plucking
straight 16th note harmonics until you end up above the 7th fret
at the beginning of the 4th beat.  Do this four times under "We
are the fossils, the relics of our time... etc". 

At the hold, hold for 8 beats, then play this 32nd-note strumming
pattern, similar to the end of Cherub Rock:

  w h h q q q q  e  e  e  e  e  e  e  e
------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
--4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-x\--
--4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-x\--
--2-3-4-5-6-7-8--9--10-11-12-13-14-15-x\--
------------------------------------------

Under the guitar solo, play the main chorus part 3x and this
pattern the fourth time:

--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
--6-6-9-1----1--1-1--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4/7-7-7--7-7-7-7--
--6-6-9-2----2--2-2--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4/7-7-7--7-7-7-7--
--4-4-7-2----2--2-2--4\2-2-2--2--2-2--2/5-5-5--5-5-5-5--
--------0----0--0-0-------------------------------------

Now here's where it gets interesting... Riff 1 is altered into a
3/4 time signature, with three measures of 3/4 time connected to
a measure of 4/4 time.  Play this entire sequence 4x, 2x without
vocals, 2x under "quiet, i am sleeping...".  At the end of the
4th time through, slide up to an B(7th fret E string) power chord
instead of going back down to the E power chord.

 repeat this section 3 times
        ||-------------------------------||
        ||-------------------------------||
[3/4]   ||*-----------------------------*||
        ||*--2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--*||
        ||---2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7---||
        ||---0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5---||



        |--------------------------------------|
        |--------------------------------------|
[4/4]   |--------------------------------------|
        |--2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--2-2-2-2--|
        |--2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--2-2-2-2--|
        |--0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5--0-0-0-0--|

The lead part out of the solo into the changing time signatures
is as follows (you need to either play it with a Boss Ocataver or
deal with it not sounding very full-.. play twice before the
vocals (play the notes in the [] to get the octave effect-:

          vib.            vib.
---12/14--12----12/14--12------
--------------------------12---
---[9/11]-[9]---[9/11]-[9]-----
--------------------------[9]--
-------------------------------
-------------------------------

Then the outro is back into 4/4 time, the normal chorus pattern
8x all the way through to the end, where it stops on the E chord
the eighth time through.  Here's the lead part for the outro,
starting halfway through the 4th repeat:
                    vib                 vib      vib

Lyrics to Quiet:

Quiet, I am sleeping,
In here, we need a little hope
For years, I've been sleeping
Helpless, couldn't tell a soul

Be ashamed
Mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Silent metal mercies
Castrate boys to the bone
Jesus, are you listening
Up there, to anyone at all

We are the fossils, the relics of our time
Mutilate the meanings so they're easy to deny

Be ashamed
Of the mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Quiet, quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet, quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet, shut up
I don't trust you
Shut up, shut up
I can't hear you

Be ashamed
Of the mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Behind me, the grace of falling snow
Cover up everything you know
Come save me from the awful sound
Of nothing
