This is "The Path to Decay" from Sirenia's album "The 13th Floor".

It's tuned a step and a half down from standard with the sixth string tuned down an

x = left hand mute
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
b = bend up or down (specified in the tab)
* = palm-mute
~ = vibrato

CHORUS

 1. Seems like I'm falling deeper              deeper inside
 2. Feels like I'm growing weaker              much weaker each day

(repeat lines 2 and 3 of the INTRO)

VERSE 2 (guitar plays the same thing from VERSE 1)

1. The lights are fading day by day; no cure for the lost there's no
   ascending
2. When life could not become more pale; a new dawn is here, another day

(repeat CHORUS)

                let ring.....

So that's it. The guitar solo has a second guitar playing a harmony in a few parts. 
The solo is based on a C# natural minor scale (C# D E F# A C#) so if you want to figure 
it out on your own go right ahead.
