Lyrics
======================================================
(verse 1)
Complicate this world you wrapped for me 
Im acquainted with your suffering

(chorus)
And all your weight, it falls on me             
It brings me down                      
And all your weight, it falls on me   
It falls on me                       

Hold me up to those whom you decieved
Promises you break, you still believe

(chorus) x3
And all your weight, it falls on me             
It brings me down                      
And all your weight, it falls on me   
It falls on me

I learned the song myself, but i like to look at the tabs to compare. After looking at 5 versions and scratching my head, i found yours. Thanks for tabbing that chromatic riff correctly. That's what i figured it out to be. It amazes me to see some of the tabs that are out there. Are there really that many tone deaf musicians? Thanks again.

Good. For a heavier sound in the verse, have guitar 2 mute "A" string in first chord. Most noticeable if only one guitar is playing

Intro off big time. The timing in it would make it sound like a spice girls song if you played it the way this representation says. Other bits and pieces are accurate, but the majority of it is wrong.
