Say Anything - The Word You Wield tab

Song: The Word You Wield
Album: In Defense of the Genre
Tabbed by: Steve Smith
Tuning: Standard

I was just fooling around one day, hit the first chord of the song by accident, and 
no one else had a tab for this song, so I figured I share.  I'm pretty sure most of it is 
with the exception of maybe the bridge.
