Creed - "Torn"
From the album "My Own Prison"
Written by Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti
Transcribed by Mike Steedle (RacerX1947@aol.com)

It's a lot to print, but it's definitely worth it.
I read that Mark Tremonti uses a Les Paul Standard 
plugged straight into a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier.
The beginning sounds like it has chorus, so that was
probably added at the board. 

Dropped D tuning (DADGBE)
m - palm mute
b - bend
p - pulloff
/ - slide

INTRO - go from the last 3 notes right back to the 
open D string at the beginning of the riff immediately 
at the same tempo to get the right sound - IMPORTANT!

-Lyrics-
Peace is what they tell me 
Love I am unholy
Lies are what they tell me
Despise you that control me
The peace is dead in my soul 
I have blamed the reason for
My intentions poor
Yes I'm the one who
The only one who
Would carry on this far
Torn, I'm filthy
Born in my own misery
Stole all that you gave me
Control you claim you save me
The peace is dead in my soul
I have blamed the reason for
My intentions poor
Yes I'm the one who
The only one who
Would carry on this far
