Tabbed by: Syn_August


Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

My attempt at this song. This took a very long time to tab out, so I hope it's accurate. 
It's mostly just power chords and single notes, though, so it shouldn't be very hard to 
play. Enjoy!

If you notice anything wrong, please feel free to tell me.

In the Key of: C# (Parts I, II, and III)
               G# (Parts IV and V)
