Eb(D#) Tuning (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb) Low to High
              (D# G# C# F# A# d#) Low to High


Chords Used In Order of Appearence
(Low to High):

Note: There is a non-standard chord used that I will call "C2".
      Please refer to chord diagram for fingering.
      Also, I am aware that not all chords have been given the proper names.
      This has been done for convenience, mainly mine.

D5  | x 0 0 3 2 x
*D5 | x 5 7 7 x x

C2  | x x 0 0 1 0
*C2 | x 5 5 5 x x

C   | x 3 2 0 1 0
*C5 | x 3 5 5 x x

A5  | 5 7 7 x x x

B5  | 7 9 9 x x x

C5  | 8 10 10 x x x

G5  | 3 5 5 x x x

*Can be played as either open or power chords throughout intro/verse


Intro:

D5 (strum)
C2 (strum)
C  (strum)

Then play open D, G, and B strings once and quickly hammer-on to D5
(Indicated in verse by (h))

Guitar 1 plays intro once, then is accompanied a second time by
Guitar 2 playing this picking part:

Picking Part 1:

eb|----2----3---------2----3---------5----3----2----x----|
Bb|--------------3--------------3-------------------3----|
Gb|-------------------------------------------------2----|
Db|-------------------------------------------------0----|
Ab|-------------------------------------------------x----|
Eb|-------------------------------------------------x----|


Verse 1:

D5                   C2                    C
    Weighin' on your mind, like a ball and chain

      (h)D5
Like a destiny to run from

                 C2                     C
Division in your soul, keeping you from whole

                (h)D5
I can't bear to see you cryin'

(strum D5 and lead into chorus)


Chorus 1:
(* = strum)

       *                      *                      *

Gb|--------------------------------------------------7------------|
Db|----7------------7----9----10---------------------7------------|
Ab|----7------------7----9----10---------------------5------------|
Eb|----5------------5----7----8-----------------------------------|
The weight         that             lays on your shoulders      Could be the


       *                      *                      *(once)

     Wings         that                   carry you home

Verse 2:

D5                          C2              C
    Sometimes you've got to die to be born again

   (h)D5
Sometimes you've got to fight

(Guitar 2 plays Picking Part 1 through second half of verse)

                        C2                             C
Sometimes you've got to learn, sometimes you've got to burn

       (h)D5
the old brush out so the new can grow


(Chorus 1 is repeated, but instead of ending on D5 barre, end on):

    G5
eb|-----|
Bb|-----|
Gb|-----|
Db|--5--|
Ab|--5--|
Eb|--3--|

(G5 is then strummed 5 times and leads into chorus 2)


Chorus 2:
(Split into 2 parts. Part one is guitar 1 playing a picking part
                     Part two is guitar 2 playing power chords)

Bridge:
(Split into 2 different picking parts)
Note: This part may not be exactly correct; as it is difficult to interpret from the recording
      A flange effect is used on picking part 2
