More heavy riffs from Tremonti's low-tuned axe. I suggest a 0.060 gauge 
or so string for the low B to avoid excess slack. Please rate/comment!

Verse 1 - Main Riff Again Lyrics: "A tireless stream of indifference flows through veins 'till the river runs dry I no longer care, I have all but disposed of dreams that I once held inside. Desire is gone after all of these years the fight has been lost, I concede. The apathy born a long time ago has grown to what I can't defeat" Before Chorus Riff Change - () notes is Guitar 2
