That stuff underneath the TAB is the length of each note.  'e' is an
eighth note, 's' is a sixteenth note, 'e.' is a doted eighth note, and
so on.  The '/' between two notes means that they are tied.  An underlined
letter is a rest.  The TAB is just standard TAB.

Bridge (guitars 1 & 2 tacet) The violin 1 part I got from the music book that was put out. I figured out the rest of it andarranged it for guitar. The 'other' section is just 'D' and 'C' chords being played. I don'tknow what intrument(s) it is so that's why it's called 'other'.V|----------------------------|---------------------------------|-----------------5-------------4-|I|------5-------5-------6-----|---------5-------5-------7-------|-------------5-----5-----7---6---|O|----5---5---5---5---5---5---|-------5---5---5---5---5---5-----|---------------5-----5-5---5-----|L|----------------------------|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|I|----------------------------|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|N|----------------------------|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

Lyrics Intro Verse 1 The marionette has your number Pulling your arms and legs till you can't stand on your own Dragging your conscience on the stage And your heart gets rearranged And you can not tell your mentor from your Maker. Look at the crowds bleeding with laughter Over the way you entertain at beckon call They don't see behind the lights Or the painted backgrounds They just like to see you fall. Chorus But you don't really mind Cause you're just wasting time You can't feel anything Just a boy on a string. Verse 2 I feel a sadness like Gapetto Watching the life that he created run away Seeing the puppeteer's intrusion And holding the remains Of puppets that have rotted away. One day the curtain will not open (will not open) And all of the crowds will go away (crowds will go away) Someday those strings will choke you But until that day. Chorus But you don't really mind Cause you're just wasting time You can't feel anything Just a boy on a string. Bridge Just a boy, just a boy, just a boy.... Chorus But you don't really mind Cause you're just wasting time You can't feel anything Just a boy on a string. Repeat Outro Just a boy on a string.
