I believe Weezer is playing this song in their usual 1/2 step down tuning, however,
I tabbed it out in standard tuning. It may very well be eaiser to play half a step
down and if you try to play it that way just remember to move your hand one fret to
the left. ;)


If you want to play chords over the arpeggios I believe the chords used are something like:

F#, B, C#, Dm#


Song in 4/4 and for the most part the notes are 8th notes.

This song is a bit trick to tab because although it all has the same basic form
the fills on the end of the arpeggio are played differently.

L= legato

There's a spider on the drain and he's feeling pain
And he doesn't want to die any more than you or I
He's struggling to live but he doesn't have much time
Any more than you or I, you or I

We've got to die, we've got to live
We got to take what we can get
We sell ourselves for petty change
And when we die we rearrange
It's time to take it back again
It's time to take it back again
I want you to love me like I love you

There's nothing more for me to say
I spoke my piece I'll go on my way
And fare thee well where'er you go
You might need help but I won't know
Cuz I'm up in here in my own cell
It could be heaven it could be hell
We'll never know just who we are
Cuz when we die we become a star
And stars can't talk because they have
No mouth to speak about their past
They simply shine up in the sky
And give their light to you and I
And where would we be without their light
We'd call out names and then start a fight
But then again that's what we do
I hate me and I hate you too
Cuz I'm in pain just like the spider
In the drain, I am a fighter
But I can't win I've got to lose
Give me strength to see me through
And ease the pain that I must feel
As my bones break and I taste the steel
As I go down ...the drain...
I'm insane
