Intro

E |-77777-|

B |-xxxxx-| - tremelo pick this with a weak flanger effect.

F|-55555-|

Then comes in a second guitar

E |-7777777777777777-|

B |-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-| - here, increase the flanger effect when the 6's are played

F|-55555555/6666666-|

Before the heavy part ("Broke away my tear spout...")

B |-7-7-7-7-|

F#|---------|
The heavy part ("As i lie there whith my tongue spread wide open...")

B |-111-0-|

F|-111-0-|

B |-111-0-|

The Chorus Riff ("Its hard to stay between the lines of skin...")

B |-021-021-00-5-05-01-|

F|-021-021-00-5-05-01-|

B |-021-021-00-5-05-01-|

pm --- --- -- - -
This riff comes in before "binding my time..."

B |-0000-01-|

F#|-0000-01-| - followed by percussion sounds

B |-0000-01-|

pm ---- --
"Binding my time until the time is right"

B |-00-00-11-11-11-|

F|-00-00-11-11-11-|

B |-00-00-11-11-11-|

The riff when he starts screaming after "Binding my time..." B |-1--0-| F#|-1--0-| - let the chords ring B |-1--0-| Then there is that noisefest part with feedback. Most notes resemble the intro so play around with that. Im sure its a random thing when the band plays it live (if they do...). It kinda reminds me of Kurt Cobain and his feedback-led solos. Towards the end ("I want my time.. Id rather die..."

B |-7-|

F#|-7-| - this chord is played with flanger

B |-7-|

"Need Time!" (when Corey goes all psyco!)

B |-00-00-|

F#|-00-00-| - Just that chord

B |-00-00-|
