Since the song has no other tabs except one regular guitar tab with no ratings at all, I will try my best for a
three-part tab submission.  One for bass, one for chords/rhythm, and one for the lead and rhythm guitar
together.  This is a decent-sized project, so I will do my best for all three.

For the timestamps in the tab itself inbetween each section, these signify also when to play each part.

11 does not mean eleven, nor does 13 mean thirteen; rather, it is two 1's and a 1 and a 3 played consecutively 
with each other, respectively.

          Searching for words, embracing their meaning.

          Starving for hurt. Erasing your feelings.

          Replacing comfort with a false sense of sacrifice.

          Awaiting your turn for a guarantee to roll the dice.

            E|------------------------------------------------|

               Why can't you fake me a reason why?

               You choose to blame me for all the times you hide.

               You can't mistake me for the enemy tonight.

           How does it feel? What does it mean to you?

           Your heart is real. It isn't bulletproof

           You can't conceal all of the things you do

           On your way down

          Harboring thoughts of doubt and confusion

          Fearing what's lost; a selfless conclusion

          You're awaiting the fall and creating your own appetite.

          You're saving it all. You'll do anything to win the fight.

The tab you're talking about with no ratings is one I made, and I'll admit it wasn't the best. I was a bit new to tabbing and learning songs by ear when I wrote that, so it was kind of half-assed. I was pretty eager to get it done because it was one of my favorite songs on the album and there was no tab beforehand. I also wrote the tab for the full album and I've been more focused on updating that one than the others. Though I have to question why you tabbed this out in standard tuning, the song is in Drop C.

Transposition :D never really got all the rage others had for using a different tuning than the original, when the groups themselves that made the music don't seem to mind much at all, but oh well :) to each their own, eh?

Good point. I guess the only need for tuning to Drop C is to get a low C bass note, which isn't too different when playing the C an octave up (3rd fret of A string in standard bass tuning)
