A Tool Acoustic Tab

There's one I thought would never happen. It took me some time to figure
 this one out, mainly because there are so many variations in this song.

Also, this is how I hear it. I think its pretty much correct. To get it to
 sound like the song, you're going to have to be able to hear the rhythm 
correctly. Mostly it sounds like a funk song played on the acoustic. 

However, I am pretty sure that this is correct. I've derived the chords from
 what I hear of the bass line and how they seem to be functioning in the 
harmony. Please let me know what you think. 



Tab:

Intro:
G Em7 
D Em7 x3

D Em7x3
D7 Gmaj7


G			Am			Em D
We barely remember who or what came before 
this precious moment, We are choosing to be here 

Vamp on Em
right now.  Hold on, stay inside 

G  	Am		Em
This holy reality, this holy experience. 

Em G	Am G				//Hit each chord just once except the last G (twice)
Choosing to be here in 

D Em7       D Em7			D Em7			D Em7
This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in 

This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal

Em 
All this pain is an illusion. 

Em D G  (several times)


Around (2:30)
Interlude:

Bm7 Em7


Em7 Fmaj7 	Em7		D7 Cmaj7	(last two on para-bol)
Twirling round with this familiar parabol. 
Spinning, weaving round each new experience. 
Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this

D	Em		G	
 chance to be alive and breathing. 

(Around 3:30)
Em D Em D(octave higher)

There's a riff here which you can try by playing Em7 D7 Em7 Gmaj

Vamp (muted chords) (Around 4:06)
Em7 Am D7




Vamp on Em
This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality. 
Embrace this moment. Remember. we are eternal. 

All this pain is an illusion.

Em7 D7 Em7 Cmaj7

Ends on harmonics (G B E)


There are a million rhythmic variations in the song and though the chords 
work, the rhythm is something youre going to have to figure out on your own.
 As to some of the chord voicings, I play the main riff D at the 5th fret 
and hammer on to Em7 at the 7th fret.

The chords at 3:30 sound nice if you just strum them once playing the triads
 with the highest note on 7th (Em), 5th(D) and 10th (D) frets (two of these 
voicings are also used in stairway to heaven).

PM me if you want something clarified.
