Guitar 1- this part I'm really not sure about because its so faint, but I tried, but I 
what seemed to make the most sense.  Email me if you want me to make some corrections or something.

Guitar 2- this is digitally looped or something, but I'm guessing this is how they would 
it live.

"Now my eyes flash with WHITE"

Both Guitars- I personally like to play this using powerchords instead of single notes 
the low D string, but I think this is how it's played on the record.

"Here again?  Here again?  This is getting old"

Both guitars(?)- the last strike is muted almost immediately after it is hit.

Guitar 1- syncs up with Guitar 2 on the dissonant note only.  All the rest is distorted 
until the end where an 8th fret A string/10th fret G string octave bleeds into the next 
before its struck again at the beginning of the verse.

McTague uses a reverb petal of some sort here, so each note is struck three times and 
for a while.  Guitar 2 is absent.

Guitars one and two play that twice more (part 1, part 2, part 1, part 2, end).

Guitar 3-(played over the last part 1/part 2 verse)-played really fast many times.

I THINK there's a fourth guitar track playing over the other three on the very last 
2", but its too faint for me to figure out.

Yeah, so basically I think this is probably the closest tab to the actual song out there 
now.  Email me if you got some comments or corrections because I need this sheezy to be perfect.

Hey, I forgot to say that Guitar 1's second part is played twice so that the last little riff lines up with each of Guitar 2's.

Egh, I found another mistake. It's not huge, but it's played from 1:00 to 1:10 in the song, where he says "Now my eyes flash with white". All the notes are there, I just forgot to put in the part where he plays (on the low D) 5-7--3~-0. If you listen to the song it's pretty easy to figure out. I tried to edit it but don't know how to fix it, but oh well.

And thanks Sevendust rocks!
