This tab has additions to the previous tab. Not corrections.

Intro: The bass plays something like a D pedal and the guitars play some
misc. feedback. Then a guitar plays this: 

E||-----------------------||
B||------------------4b---||
G||o-------3h5p3p0-------o||
D||o---------------------o||
A||-----------------------||
D||--0--------------------||

Verse: 
G||------------------------------------||
D||o----------------------------------o||
A||o----------------------------------o||
D||--0--0-0-8-8-0-0-0-8-8-8-7-8-8-8----||

G||------------------------------------||
D||o----------------------------------o||
A||o----------------------------------o||
D||--0--0-0-6-6-0-0-0-6-6-6-5-6-6-6----||

Play this right before the first verse (guitar 2), on the 6th string and use
a lot of vibrato! 

D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
D|--8~~~~~~------10~~~~~~--6~~~~~-|

Chorus 1 riff: 
E||------------------------||--------------------||
B||------11--11---11--11---||--11--11---11--11---||
G||------13b-13b--13b-13b--||--13b-13b--13b-13b--||
D||------------------------||--------------------||
A||------------------------||--------------------||
D||--0---------------------||--------------------||

E||------------------------||--------------------||
B||------13--13---13--13---||--13--13---13--13---||
G||------15b-15b--15b-15b--||--15b-15b--15b-15b--||
D||------------------------||--------------------||
A||------------------------||--------------------||
D||------------------------||--------------------||

E||------------------------||--------------------||
B||------15--15---15--15---||--15--15---15--15---||
G||------17b-17b--17b-17b--||--17b-17b--17b-17b--||
D||------------------------||--------------------||
A||------------------------||--------------------||
D||------------------------||--------------------||

E||------------------------||--------------------||
B||-------9---9----9---9---||---9---9----9---9---||
G||------11b-11b--11b-11b--||--11b-11b--11b-11b--||
D||------------------------||--------------------||
A||------------------------||--------------------||
D||------------------------||--------------------||

Go back to the beginning riffs. When you come back to the Chorus 1 riff,
play it 2 times. Then play:

Chorus Riff 2: 
                                                  Play 4 times
G||-----------------------------|-----------------------------||
D||-x-x-x-x-12-12-x-x-x-x-12-12-|-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-10-10-||
A||-x-x-x-x-12-12-x-x-x-x-12-12-|-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-10-10-||
D||-x-x-x-x-12-12-x-x-x-x-12-12-|-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-10-10-||

Interlude: 

A||o-----------------------------------------||
D||o--0--0-0-12-12-12-12-10-10-10-10--10-12--||

A||-----------------------------------------||
D||--0--0-0-13-13-13-13-10-10-10-10--13-12--||

                            Play 5 times
G||-------------|--R--------------------||
D||--7----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||
A||--7----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||
D||--7----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6---||

For the "It wouldn't pain me more" (last bar of interlude) the riff keeps
the same rhythm, but the notes change: 

A||-0--0-0-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3--3-5--|-0--0-0-6-6-6-6-3-3-3-3--6-5--|
D||------------------------------|------------------------------|


G||-------------|--R--------------------||
D||--3----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||
A||--3----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6--o||
D||--3----------|--R--6--3--6--5--5/6---||

Then play the 2nd chorus part and end it on the intro riff.

Lyrics:

And you stare at me in your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out like you've been carrying a load
And you swear to me you don't want to be my slave
But you're staring at me like I need to be saved

In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out
In your Jesus Christ pose

Thorns and shroud like it's the coming of the Lord
And I swear to you that I would never feed you pain
But you're staring at me like I'm driving the nails

In your Jesus Christ pose
And you stare at me
In your Jesus Christ pose

Arms held out like it's the coming of the Lord
And would it pay you more to walk on water
Than to wear a crown of thorns
It wouldn't pain me more to bury you rich
Than to bury you poor
In your Jesus Christ pose
