This is an awesome song, no doubt about it.  This my second
favorite SW song of all time.  Beautiful guitar work, and
powerful lyrics.

The intro, bend each chord slightly. (Clean)

G Bb A G#--------------------------------------------)--)--)--)---5)-8)-7)-6)---3--6--5--4---
When it gets heavy, play this... (verses) When you play the muted strings, place your hands at a G# chord and mute the strings there... That will give you the correct harmonics...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------5-5-8-8-7-7-x-x-x-x-x-x--5-5-8-8-7-7-x-x-x-x-x-x--3-3-6-6-5-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-
You can hear that. It's very quiet, and is played during the verses at that very quiet part...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------5-----5-----5-------------5--5----5-----------3-----3---3----------- repeat
PLay this... it is part of the bridge when he sings It's Crushing me... and you hear chords ring out...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------3-2-5-3--3-2----3-2-5-3--3-2----------3-3-5-6--3-3-5--3-3-5-6--3-3--5-5-5---1-3-3-6--1-3-5--1-3-3-6--1-3--5-5-5-----1---4----1-3----1---4----1--3-3-3--
Then comes the heavy palm mute part to end the song... its all on the Eb (6th) string... palm mute then... ) ) ) ) 1-3-3-3-1-3-3-3-1-3-3-3-1-3-3-3--------0-3-0-4-0-5-0-6- Thats it... Now the words... I'm feeling the weight of the world And it's crushing me I'm feeling the weight of everyday life And it's crushing me How much more will it take How much more Until it breaks me This world... Is crushing me I'm feeling the weight of the world And it's crushing me I'm feeling the weight of everyday life And it's crushing me How much more will it take How much more Until it breaks me This world... Is crushing me I've spent every moment since the day you left In an attempt to rebuild a shattered remains of a pathetic life... Working to be someone you can be proud of and someone You can love again. I have given you everything I have to give; everything I'm Able to give, taking into consideration your reluctance To accept anything I have to offer. I'm tired of living this way for you I'm tired of living my life for you I'm tired of living my life in everybody else's world. I'm tired of living my life in everyone else's world I'm tired of protecting you I'm tired of life I'm feeling the hate of the world And it's crushing me I'm feeling the hate of the world And it's crushing me I swallow the hate Betrayal and lies Swallow it whole and shove deep down inside of me Feeling the weight of the world And it's crushing me And it's crushing me And it's crushing me Oh and it's crushing me I swallow the hate Betrayal and lies Swallow it whole and shove it deep down inside of me How much more will it take How much more until it breaks me Feeling the weight of the world Yes i'm feeling the weight of the world And it's crushing me
