Running time:9:51

Tuning for this song is in Drop D.(Db,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb)

The guitar in the song starts after about thirty seconds of drum playing. You will have
listen to the actual song for the specific timing since I'm not very good at tabbing. :D

This next part is tremolo picked. It probably looks like I have tabbed frets in the
(Gizillionth!? :O) digits, but it doesn't exceed the 21st fret,they are just not spaced
of song speed.(And this is also part of the solo...I think)

           (4:18)    SOLO TIME!!

Yes. That was very strange, wasn't it? Well it gets even better. Billy Corgan starts
a little tune with harmonics. I can't tell which ones exactly, but it is something like
frets I list are Harmonics,as shown by the *)(tremolo picked, as far as I can tell)

Yeah, it's off, I know. Now play some more stunted strings (the x's)and then on the
string(Gb) tremolo pick a harmonic over the seventh fret of the third string. That made
right? Now that that is over with,start playing this:

                  LYRICS

Tired Eyes close for days there's no regret 'cause there's no place.I don't know what I
but if I feel safe,what do I need? revolution! revolution! revolution blues.what will
do? revolution! revolution! revolution blues. what will they do to me? dulcet tongues, 
fast, the future yearns, right now's the past. rouse me soon, the end daws nigh,
side are you on? your blood you cannot buy. revolution! revolution! revolution blues. 
will they do? revolution! revolution! what will they do to you?

We're alive! I feel alright! so tonight i'v got to ask you why? why tonight? it's no
i've got to survive! freedom shines a light ahead i'll lead the last charge from bed, they
my last rights, i dont have to run scared no more. fight! i wanna fight! i wanna fight! 
tonight! i wanna fight! i wanna fight! revolution tonight! acolyte, acolyte. do
wanna watch me die!??? let me do something good. let me prove something real like i 
let me embrace every single little thing. let me be every single moment i ever misunderstood.

And now, tab explanation.

/=slide up     bu=Bend up   x= stunted string    *=harmonic
~=let ring  And tremolo means to strum really fast!

Enjoy!
