tune down 1/4 step

   intro...clean guitar:

E)--5-p-0------------8-p-0---------------5-p-0-------------8-p-0--------------
B)-----------6------------------6--------------------6-----------------6------
G)---------------7-------------------7-------------------7-----------------7--
D)----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-

E)--4-p-0------------7-p-0--------------4-p-0-------------7-p-0---------------
B)-----------6-----------------6--------------------6-----------------6-------
G)---------------7------------------7--------------------7----------------7---
D)----------------------------------------------------------------------------


E)--3-p-0------------5-p-0--------------3-p-0-------------5-p-0---------------
B)-----------6-----------------6--------------------6-----------------6-------
G)---------------7------------------7--------------------7----------------7---
D)----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-

E)--1-p-0------------1-p-0--------------1-p-0-------------1-p-0---------------
B)-----------3-----------------3--------------------3-----------------3-------
G)---------------2------------------2--------------------1----------------0---
D)----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-

    repeat.  the electric guitar comes in the 2nd time and plays this:

D)-------------5------10-----------------------------------
A)--5----------x-------8------8----------------------------
E)-------4-----3--------------6-------5-4-3-0-2-3-4-5------

D)------------------2-h-3-p-2*------------------------
A)---5----3--5-----------------------5--3-------------   *-artificial harmonic
E)-----------------------------------------------4----

         repeat.  then:
 
       clean guitar:

E)-5-p-0-------------4-p-0------------3-p-0-------------1-------0-------------
B)----------6------------------6-----------------6--------------3--------1----
G)--------------7------------------7-----------------7------------------------
D)----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-

       distorted:

E)-----------------------1---------0--------------
B)-----3----------------------3---------1---------
G)-----------5--4---------------------------------
D)------------------------------------------------

      play 4 times.  Then both guitars play a really cool line to finish the
intro, but I haven't been able to figure it out yet.

      then this great riff:

G)--7-p-5----------5---------5-h-7--7-p-5---------5------
D)--7-p-5----------5---------5-h-7--7-p-5---------5------
A)-------------7---------5------------------------7------
E)-------------------------------------------------------

G)-------5-h-7--7-p-5----------5-----------5-h-7--------5-------------------
D)-------5-h-7--7-p-5----------5-----------5-h-7--------3-------5-----------
A)--5-----------------------7-----------5---------------------------3-------
E)--------------------------------------------------------------------------

          verse ("My life's on time"...)

D)-----7---------------5-------7------------
A)-----5-------3-------3-------5------------
E)-------------1----------------------------

D)---7-----------------5--4--3-------------------7----------
A)---5-------3---------3--2--1---------3---------5----------
E)-----------1-------------------------1--------------------

        then the outro.  Picking is very intricate:

D)--7-------------------------------------
A)--5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5------
E)----------------------------------------

D)--9-/10---9-----------------------------------------------
A)--7-/-8---7--------8--------------------------------------
E)--------------------6--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6------

D)----------------------------------------------------------
A)--7-/-8--7-----5------------------------------------------
E)--5-/-6--5-----3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------

D)--5--6--7-------------------------------------------------
A)--3--4--5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5------
E)----------------------------------------------------------

         Ending:

G)-----------------------------------7-p-6-p-5-----5-h-6-h-7-------
D)------------------5-h-6-h-7--------------------------------------
A)--5-h-6-h-7------------------------------------------------------
E)-----------------------------------------------------------------

         you....DIE!

D)----7------------7-\-5--------------
A)----5------------5-\-3--------------
E)------------------------------------

     that's my interpretation.  If anyone can finish that intro, please
contact me.
