Verse riff - Arpeggio w/ reverb and chorus
This is a bit tricky to play. Its easiest if you move the 2nd finger to the high e to 
the sus4 note unless you have mad stretching skills.

Theres also a riff he plays over the arpeggio in the 3rd verse. Reverb and chorus again.
e|--------------------------------|

D|---0-12-0---10-00-12-0---10-----|
A|----------12-----------12-------| etc.

For the outro one guitar plays the above lead riff while a 2nd guitar plays these 
(this is not the rythymn):
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|---7--5---|
D|---x--x---|
A|---5--3---|
E|----------|

Then its the bridge riffs again and then finish!
Awesome gothic tune and a great example of Mcgeoch's innovative approach to chords and licks.

I do this instead. It sounds the same and is way easier to play. Leave your 1st finger on the F# on the B string (7th fret). I play the first two notes with my 2nd and 3rd fingers and the next three with my 1st and 2nd.
