So I met Joshua at warped tour and talked to him about this song.
I figured out most of it on my own, but there were a few things that he showed me.
The timing is kind of tricky, so listen to the song to get it right.I also may have 
accidentally added in some extra notes by accident.
Its in Drop A# (I think the rest of the album is too).


Tuning: A# F A# D# G C

Bridge
This part is both guitars again, but the rhythm is too complicated to tab out.
