Verse 1 (Clean)[x2] Arpeggio played twice ____________e|---5-5--5-----5-----5-5--7-----7-----4-4---7-----7-----5-----5-------|B|---8--8-7---7---7---7--7-8---8---8---5---5-8---8---8---7---7---7-----|G|---7----7-7-------7-6----7-7-------7-4-----7-7-------7-7-7-------7---|D|---0----0-----------0----0-0---------2-----0---------0-0-----------0-|A|-------------------------------------------------------0-------------|D|-------------------------------------------------------0-------------| *Arpeggiate Chords

For Verse 2, play the second part of the intro (where both guitars play) only guitar 2 louder than in the intro. Play this 2 times Interlude 2 is the same as Interlude 1. Pre-Chorus: After the Sixteen D chords are finished, Dave and Pat kick in the fuzzy and play the following D chords..
e|-x| e|-x|B|-x| B|-x|G|-x| G|-7| Guitar 1 and 2 play these 8 more times Palm MutedD|-0| D|-7|A|-0| A|-5|D|-0| D|-0|
Guitar 1 and 2 play this together in sync with Taylor's drums(i think it was Taylor.. too sure), Nate's bass and Dave's agressive lyrics.

Lyrics: Hanging on here until I'm gone just hanging on Even though I watched you come and go how was I to know You'd steal the show One day I'll have enough to gamble I'll wait to hear your final call bet it all Hanging on here until I'm gone right where I belong just hanging on Even though I pass this time alone somewhere so unknown it heals the soul You ask for walls I'll build them higher we'll lie in shadows of them all I'd stand but they're much too tall and i fall February Stars floating in the dark temporary scars February Stars
