Play Riff 1 4x as intro, 4x under verse

Play this chorus riff 3x then the held note ending:

--4-4-7-2----2--2-2--4\2--- -(2)/(x)\(0)-

--------0----0--0-0-------- -(2)/(x)\(0)-

 

 

For the second verse, play the Riff 1 section 12x and then do the

chorus again, all the way through until the hold.

 

To get that harmonic sliding effect, place your finger above the

12th fret on the high E string and slide down slowly, plucking

straight 16th note harmonics until you end up above the 7th fret

at the beginning of the 4th beat. Do this four times under "We

are the fossils, the relics of our time... etc".

 

At the hold, hold for 8 beats, then play this 32nd-note strumming

pattern, similar to the end of Cherub Rock:

 

w h h q q q q e e e e e e e e

------------------------------------------

--2-3-4-5-6-7-8--9--10-11-12-13-14-15-x\--

------------------------------------------

 

Under the guitar solo, play the main chorus part 3x and this

pattern the fourth time:

 

--------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------

--6-6-9-1----1--1-1--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4/7-7-7--7-7-7-7--

--6-6-9-2----2--2-2--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4/7-7-7--7-7-7-7--

--4-4-7-2----2--2-2--4\2-2-2--2--2-2--2/5-5-5--5-5-5-5--

--------0----0--0-0-------------------------------------

 

Now here's where it gets interesting... Riff 1 is altered into a

3/4 time signature, with three measures of 3/4 time connected to

a measure of 4/4 time. Play this entire sequence 4x, 2x without

vocals, 2x under "quiet, i am sleeping...". At the end of the

4th time through, slide up to an B(7th fret E string) power chord

instead of going back down to the E power chord.

 

repeat this section 3 times

||-------------------------------||

||-------------------------------||

[3/4] ||*-----------------------------*||

||*--2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--*||

||---2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7---||

|--2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--2-2-2-2--|

|--0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5--0-0-0-0--|

 

The lead part out of the solo into the changing time signatures

is as follows (you need to either play it with a Boss Ocataver or

deal with it not sounding very full-.. play twice before the

vocals (play the notes in the [] to get the octave effect-:

 

vib. vib.

---12/14--12----12/14--12------

--------------------------12---

---[9/11]-[9]---[9/11]-[9]-----

--------------------------[9]--

-------------------------------

-------------------------------

 

Then the outro is back into 4/4 time, the normal chorus pattern

8x all the way through to the end, where it stops on the E chord

the eighth time through. Here's the lead part for the outro,

starting halfway through the 4th repeat:

vib vib vib

Lyrics:

 

Quiet, I am sleeping,

In here, we need a little hope

For years, I've been sleeping

Helpless, couldn't tell a soul

 

Be ashamed

Mess you've made

My eyes never forget, you see

Behind me

 

Silent metal mercies

Castrate boys to the bone

Jesus, are you listening

Up there, to anyone at all

 

We are the fossils, the relics of our time

Mutilate the meanings so they're easy to deny

 

Be ashamed

Of the mess you've made

My eyes never forget, you see

Behind me

 

Quiet, quiet

I am sleeping

Quiet, quiet

I am sleeping

Quiet, shut up

I don't trust you

Shut up, shut up

I can't hear you

 

Be ashamed

Of the mess you've made

My eyes never forget, you see

Behind me

 

Behind me, the grace of falling snow

Cover up everything you know

Come save me from the awful sound

Of nothing
