Guitar 1- this part I'm really not sure about because its so faint, but I tried, but I what seemed to make the most sense. Email me if you want me to make some corrections or something.e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|------------------------------------------------------------------7p0----------|A|-1p0--5h7p0--3p0-0--1p0--5h7p0--3p0-0--3p0-0--1p0--5h7p0--3p0--/8-----8p0------|D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------0h3--|

Guitar 2- this is digitally looped or something, but I'm guessing this is how they would it live.

"Now my eyes flash with WHITE" Both Guitars- I personally like to play this using powerchords instead of single notes the low D string, but I think this is how it's played on the record.

"Here again? Here again? This is getting old"
Both guitars(?)- the last strike is muted almost immediately after it is hit.e|----------------------|B|-6----6----6----6-----|G|-9----9----9----9-----|D|-0----0----0----0---0-|A|-0----0----0----0---0-|D|-0----0----0----0---0-|

Guitar 1- syncs up with Guitar 2 on the dissonant note only. All the rest is distorted until the end where an 8th fret A string/10th fret G string octave bleeds into the next before its struck again at the beginning of the verse.

McTague uses a reverb petal of some sort here, so each note is struck three times and for a while. Guitar 2 is absent. "As you dig your feet in I will sink my teeth into the floor"

Guitars one and two play that twice more (part 1, part 2, part 1, part 2, end).
Guitar 3-(played over the last part 1/part 2 verse)-played really fast many times.e|----------------------|B|----------------------|G|--22----17----14------|D|----------------------|A|--20----15----12------|D|----------------------|
I THINK there's a fourth guitar track playing over the other three on the very last 2", but its too faint for me to figure out. Yeah, so basically I think this is probably the closest tab to the actual song out there now. Email me if you got some comments or corrections because I need this sheezy to be perfect.
