One of the best tracks off their new album in my opinion.
You should go out and pick this album up if you haven't already :)

Pay close attention to the side notes I've inserted througout the
course of the song. The notes elaborate on the music.

                       Intro/Verse (Lead):


D ---------------------------------------------------------------|
A ---------------------------------------------------------------|
F ---------------------------------------------------------------|
C ---------------------------------------------------------------|
G --12-------12-------11-------11-------11-----------------------|
C -----14-14----14-14----14-14----14-14----14-14-14--------------|
     .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

         ** Repeat that riff from the very beginning of the song  **
            and throughout the verses. The same concept applies to
            the upcoming rhythm section.


                      Intro/Verse (Rhythm):

   The rhythm section changes every time Shimon sings a new "Maybe" line,
   with minor exceptions. Play each of the following notes repeatedly.

   Note: This section is also palm muted thoughout,
         and I prefer to down pick this section as
         opposed to alternate picking... It seems
         to match the sound better.

  "Maybe I'm a dreamer..."  "Maybe I'm misunderstood..."

                             Chorus:

 **Note: Play these chords as many times as you feel necessary.**
