[End of solo]

[Interlude 2]
I won't be the one you like, I won't be the boy next door, I won't be the chosen one. 
That's not what I'm here for. 
I don't like the way you are, I despise what you hold dear. Don't you try to make me change. 
I'll haunt you for a thousand years.

Set it up for standard tuning and it may be easier to play. I thought it looks fairly accurate though, other than slight changes and palm mutes thrown in here and there.
