During the choruses, guitar 1 plays the above part, with minor variation. Guitar 2 roughly doubles guitar 1's part during the first chorus. Verse: (Guitar 2 tacet) Well I'm all messed That's nothing new Hey monkey, when you open up your blue eyes I don't know if I'm wide awake or dreaming But all I ever need is everything * (w/ fill 1) Hey monkey, where you been? * (w/ fill 2) This lonely spiral I've been in * (w/ fill 3) Hey monkey, when can we begin? Hey monkey, where you been?
