i have been in the process of trying to make an "ultimate tab." basically i saw a green 
day tab that was set up like this and thought it was a great idea and wanted to expand 
on this. definition: tab with every instrument needed to play song included.  this 
tab is perfect for covers.

------------
| verse 1: |
------------
Tonight I'll have a look and try to find my face again
Buried beneath this house my spirit screams and dies again
Outback a monster wears a cloak of Persian leather
Behind the TV screen I've fallen to my knees

--------------
| prechorus: |
--------------
I said you got me where you want me again and I can't turn away
I'm hangin' by a thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here in between the shadows of my yesterday
I wanna get away, I need to get away

-----------
| verse 2 |
-----------
Blanket of silence makes me wanna sink my teeth in deep
Burn all the evidence, a fabricated disbelief
Pull back the curtains took a look into your eyes
My tongue has now become a platform for your lies

-------------
| prechorus |
-------------
I said you got me where you want me again and I can't turn away
I'm hangin' by a thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here in between the shadows of my yesterday
I wanna get away, I need to get away

----------
| chorus |
----------
Now you know, yeah you got my back against the wall
Oh God, I ain't got no other place to hide
Chained down like a sittin' duck just waitin' for the fall
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall

-----------
| verse 3 |
-----------
Deep in the jungle camouflaged by all the fallen leaves
A hand holds up the sky while shamefully I make my plea
The alter's callin' but my legs won't seem to stand
Guess I'm a coward scared to face the man I am

-------------
| prechorus |
-------------
I said you got me where you want me again and I can't turn away
I'm hangin' by a thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here in between the shadows of my yesterday
I wanna get away, I need to get away



----------
| chorus |
----------
Now you know, yeah you got my back against the wall
Oh God, I ain't got no other place to hide
Chained down like a sittin' duck just waitin' for the fall
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall

Now you know, yeah you got my back against the wall
Oh God, I ain't got no other place to hide
Chained down like a sittin' duck just waitin' for the fall
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall
