*******************************************************************
Transposition:
I have this transcribed for an 8 string guitar that is tuned down a
1/2 step.  This is what I originally used for the song.  I realize
that most people probably don't have an 8 string so if you want to
play the song on a six string then you will ahve to transpose the
6th and 7th strings in my tablature.

example of octave transposition (its pretty easy I promise)

So this is the intro that you'll see below.  The only parts you'll
have to transpose are the rhythm parts on the top strings.  To
transpose an octave you just move 2 strings down and 2 frets up.
I included an example below.
Intro (original on 8 string)

  p.m.(rhythm only)------------------------------------------------

Eb--------------------------------|
Bb--------7---7---7---7---9---9---|
Gb7---7-------------7---7---9-----|
Db--9---9---8---8---------------9-|
Ab--------------------------------|
Eb--------------------------------|
Bb--------7-7-7-7---------5-5-5-5-|
F 5-5-5-5---------8-8-8-8---------|


Intro (transposed for 6 string string)

  p.m.(rhythm only)------------------------------------------------

Eb--------------------------------|
Bb--------7---7---7---7---9---9---|
Gb7---7-------------7---7---9-----|
Db--9---9---8---8---------------9-|
Ab--------9-9-9-9---------7-7-7-7-|
Eb7-7-7-7---------10101010--------|


Lead and Rhythm parts:
I also decided to put the lead and rhythm guitars together rather
than dobuling the amount of space it takes to write it.  It's
pretty obvious which parts are which.

Rhytm:
I decided to count each "-" as a 16th note.  For the most part this
worked out fine but when notes are on frets in double digits like
10, 11, 12, etc then I remove a "-" to keep my borders even.  If
you see some thing like -44- then this means 2 16th notes played
on the 4th fret.  I assume you wouldn't mistake it for the 44th
fret but I want to be clear just in case.

Contact:
If you feel I have made any mistakes, typos, or you just want to
say hi feel free to conact me at my facebook fan page or my
twitter.

Lyrics

Lullaby for a dead man

Verse1
Life is still spinning.  Your
End my beginning and
Everything I hoped for has been strangely set aside.

Reason for living.  My
Mind is forgiving and
Destiny is proving to be absent from my life

Pre-chorus
I know it
I feel it

Chorus
I know when you’re sleeping.
I know the things you’re dre-aming and I know
You will never give up and die.

Verse2
Conscious fulfilling.  The
Darkness revealing all
Faults and insecurities are shinning like the sun.

Eyes are deceiving.  Your
Mind will stop breathing and
All that you are made of will now rightly become mine.

Pre-chorus
You know it
You feel it

Chorus
I know when you’re sleeping
I know the things you’re dre-aming
I love when you’re weeping.
Even death can’t stop this fe-eling and I know
You will never give up and

Bridge
Die.  Father!  Why have you forsaken me?
My life is gone.
Father!  You know how long it’s taken me.
I live again.

End chorus
I know when you’re sleeping
I know the things you’re dre-aming
I love when you’re weeping.
Even death can’t stop this fe-eling

I know when you’re sleeping
I know the things you’re dre-aming
I love when you’re weeping.
Even death can’t stop this fe-eling.  And I know

You will never give up no-o
You will ne-ver-er give up
You will never give up
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand
diiiiiiiiiiiie

Huge fan of these songs, by the way, dude. I'd love to hear a full album of just these from you maybe in the future, if you ever think about doing so.
