    1       2       3       4         1       2       3       4

Verse:

Riff A, bass only

    Crawled away from me, slipped away from me
    Tried to keep you home, but there was nothing I could say

Guitar enters, playing root notes with bass

    Slid away from me, crept away from me
    Tried to keep you down, but there was nothing I could say

Riff A, full blast

    What you're tryin' to say is you don't want to play
    What you want and what you need don't mean that much to me

Chorus:

Riff C (time sig. changes to 9/8 - watch out!)

g |-------2-----5-----4-----------------|
d |-4-----2-----5-----4-----------------|
a |-4-----0-----3-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-2-|  <- 1st and 3rd times, lift finger 
e |-2-----------------------------------|     slightly to get muffled harmonic
    1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9         sounds on single notes

    I     can   see   your
    Back  is    turn- ing
    If    I     could I'd 

   (time changes to 10/8 for last measure)
g |-------2-----5-----4---------------------|
d |-4-----2-----5-----4---------------------|
a |-4-----0-----3-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
e |-2---------------------------------------|
    1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

    Stick a     knife in!


Bass plays Riff A again under this lead:

g |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
d |---------------------------------|-2/4-4-2-4~--2-4---4---4~--------|
a |--h------------------------------|--h------------------------------|
e |-0/2-2-0-2~--0-2---2---2---0-2~--|---------------------------------|
    1       2       3       4         1       2       3       4

g |-9/11--9-11~-9-11--11--11--9-11~-|-9/11-11-11--9-11/12-\---11~-----|
d |--h------------------------------|--h--------------b---r-----------|
    1       2       3       4         1       2       3       4

Verse 2:

Bass plays Riff A

    Crawled away from me, slipped away from me
    Tried to keep you home, but there was nothing I could say

Bass plays Riff A, guitar plays the following variation:

g |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
d |-----------------------------2/4-|-----------------------0-----0---|
a |--h----------------2---4~--4--h--|--h----------------2---0---------|
e |-0/2-2-0-2~--0-2-----------------|-0/2-2-0-2~--0-2-----------------|
    1       2       3       4         1       2       3       4

    Slid  away from me,               crept away from me

Then guitar and bass both play root notes as in first verse:

    Tried to keep you down, but there was nothing I could say

Riff A again, full blast:

    What you're tryin' to say is you don't want to play
    What you want and what you need don't mean that much to me

Chorus is played the same as before, fourth time Riff C leads into Riff D 
as follows:
                                         Riff D   repeat 4 times
g |-5-----4-------------------------|---------------------------------| 
d |-5-----4-------------------5-5---|-4-------------------------5-5---|
a |-3-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-2---5-5---|-4-------(pick scrape)-----5-5---|
e |-------------------------0-3-3-0-|-2-------( 4th time  )---0-3-3-0-|
    4   5   6   7   8   9   10  11    1       2       3       4
                                                  
                                              Is this love?  (2x)
                                              This is my love for you (2x)

Riff D, variation (measures stretched to accomodate the faster picking)

g |-----------------------------------------------------------------| 
d |-4---------------4---------------4-------------------5---5-------|
a |-4---------------4---------------2-------------------5---5-------|
e |-2-------x-x-x-x-2-------x-x-x-x-2-------x-x-x-x-0---3---3---0---|
    1               2               3               4

                    This    is      my      love    for     you  (3x)
                    This    is      my      love............

Switch to doubletime feel.  Bass and guitar play 16th notes on low F# for
six measures, then guitar switches to F# on D string 4th fret for next
two measures.  Next eight measures, bass stays on F# and guitar plays:

a |----|-4~-|-5~-|-2~-|-4~-|----|-----------------|-------b---r-----|
e |-2~-|----|----|----|----|-0~-|-0-2---0-2---0-2-|---0-2-/-3-\-2---|
                                  1   2   3   4     1   2   3   4

End doubletime feel
Riff A:
    Say   you   won't   go.....

Riff B  (actually, play last two measures of Riff B twice)
    (mumbled)  Won't go... won't go...  say it...

3rd "verse" - Bass plays Riff A once while guitar holds last F# of Riff B

Riff A, guitar plays root notes only:
    (Vocal rests first two measures)
    Get you in a strangle hold baby... Get it 'til you get it right

Riff A full blast once again:

    What you're tryin' to say is you don't want to play
    What you want and what you need don't make a fuck to me

Chorus - Riff C four times again, last time ends like this:

g |-------2-----5-----4-------------------------|---------|
d |-4-----2-----5-----4-------------------5-5---|-4-------|
a |-4-----0-----3-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-2---5-5---|-4-------|
e |-2-----------------------------------0-3-3-0-|-2-------|
    1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10  11


Disclaimer:  This may not be exactly the way Tool plays it.  It is, however,
             exactly the way I play it, for what that's worth.
