                             Desperate Times - Killswitch Engage
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay so this is my take on how the song is tabbed, got tired of waiting for 
someone else, although that_i_am made a good attempt. Credit to him for the 
clean interlude as I couldn't be bothered to try and figure it out myself 
and it sounded pretty accurate to me.
