Creed - "Torn"
From the album "My Own Prison"
Written by Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti
Transcribed by Mike Steedle (RacerX1947@aol.com)

It's a lot to print, but it's definitely worth it.
I read that Mark Tremonti uses a Les Paul Standard 
plugged straight into a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier.
The beginning sounds like it has chorus, so that was
probably added at the board. 

Dropped D tuning (DADGBE)
m - palm mute
b - bend
p - pulloff
/ - slide

INTRO - go from the last 3 notes right back to the open D string at the beginning of the riff immediately at the same tempo to get the right sound - IMPORTANT!e----------------------0-----|b-----------6------------6---|g----7p5---------7p5-------5-| 3xd-0------0-----0-----0-------|a----------------------------|d----------------------------|

-Lyrics- Peace is what they tell me Love I am unholy Lies are what they tell me Despise you that control me The peace is dead in my soul I have blamed the reason for My intentions poor Yes I'm the one who The only one who Would carry on this far Torn, I'm filthy Born in my own misery Stole all that you gave me Control you claim you save me The peace is dead in my soul I have blamed the reason for My intentions poor Yes I'm the one who The only one who Would carry on this far
