I believe Weezer is playing this song in their usual 1/2 step down tuning, however,
I tabbed it out in standard tuning. It may very well be eaiser to play half a step
down and if you try to play it that way just remember to move your hand one fret to
the left. ;)


If you want to play chords over the arpeggios I believe the chords used are something like:

F#, B, C#, Dm#


Song in 4/4 and for the most part the notes are 8th notes.

This song is a bit trick to tab because although it all has the same basic form
the fills on the end of the arpeggio are played differently.

L= legato

There's a spider on the drain and he's feeling pain And he doesn't want to die any more than you or I He's struggling to live but he doesn't have much time Any more than you or I, you or I We've got to die, we've got to live We got to take what we can get We sell ourselves for petty change And when we die we rearrange It's time to take it back again It's time to take it back again I want you to love me like I love you There's nothing more for me to say I spoke my piece I'll go on my way And fare thee well where'er you go You might need help but I won't know Cuz I'm up in here in my own cell It could be heaven it could be hell We'll never know just who we are Cuz when we die we become a star And stars can't talk because they have No mouth to speak about their past They simply shine up in the sky And give their light to you and I And where would we be without their light We'd call out names and then start a fight But then again that's what we do I hate me and I hate you too Cuz I'm in pain just like the spider In the drain, I am a fighter But I can't win I've got to lose Give me strength to see me through And ease the pain that I must feel As my bones break and I taste the steel As I go down ...the drain... I'm insane
