..............................................................................................
NOTE: 	This tab is based on the cd track song.This tab is my own work, but I have been
        helped by looking many other tabs of this song along the internet.So after comparing
	all these sources and hearing to the song for thousands of times this is what I can
	offer.I hope you enjoy! This is a relatively easy song to play because it's downtuned
	to D, so at least for me the hardest thing was to getting the timing. I've tried to
	represent on this tab any little variations or details that i could hear so you can
	reach to sound 'a little bit'more like Tool,this is the cause of it's size.
	Nevertheless, I'm afraid that we're several lightspeed years far away from that
	(at least me!). I've specified the whole riffs of this song including the time when
	they start. I've also copy-pasted every riff even if it was repeated from above, to
	make the reading easier.

	Anyway, have fun 'cos that's what the music is about.

intro

B--------------------------------------5-   
G----------4------4-4--4------4-4--------	X 4   Actually I don't think that this
D----------------------------------------	      part is played by the guitarrist.	
A----------------------------------------	      In my opinion, is Danny(the drummer) 
D----2-2------2-----------2--------2-----	      who plays these notes recorded in some 
						      electronic stuff on his drumkit.

e----------------------------------------	      Anyway, you can play it with the guitar

ok, I know that it seems quite long but don't panic 'cos they're just the same few riffs
played with little variations.
I wanted to specify every single part for making 
it easier to read this tab...

...so till this point, the bass line is basically the same as
the guitar thing (or that's what I think).
Remember to downtune your bass to drop D (DADG::RE LA RE SOL)

Now comes the strange part of the solo, and bass does like this until I tell you:
