Chords Used In Order of Appearence
(Low to High):

Note: There is a non-standard chord used that I will call "C2".
      Please refer to chord diagram for fingering.
      Also, I am aware that not all chords have been given the proper names.
      This has been done for convenience, mainly mine.

D5  | x 0 0 3 2 x
*D5 | x 5 7 7 x x

C2  | x x 0 0 1 0

*Can be played as either open or power chords throughout intro/verse


Intro:

D5 (strum)
C2 (strum)
C  (strum)

Then play open D, G, and B strings once and quickly hammer-on to D5
(Indicated in verse by (h))

Guitar 1 plays intro once, then is accompanied a second time by
Guitar 2 playing this picking part:

Verse 1:

D5                   C2                    C
    Weighin' on your mind, like a ball and chain

      (h)D5
Like a destiny to run from

                 C2                     C
Division in your soul, keeping you from whole

                (h)D5
I can't bear to see you cryin'

(strum D5 and lead into chorus)

     Wings         that                   carry you home

Verse 2:

D5                          C2              C
    Sometimes you've got to die to be born again

   (h)D5
Sometimes you've got to fight
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/l/live/145827.html ]
(Guitar 2 plays Picking Part 1 through second half of verse)

                        C2                             C
Sometimes you've got to learn, sometimes you've got to burn

       (h)D5
the old brush out so the new can grow
