Here's how it goes with the words and all...

Fig 1. - 4X
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/mad_season/i_am_above_tab.html ]
Fig 2. - 4X with variations on basic rhythm
------
 E         G         A                A? A
For clear space and soundness of mind
 E        G       A                A? A
I've let you play me for some time
 E       G     A                A? A
One can only recieve and retain
 E       G         A                   A? A
But the lies you recite for your gain
------

Fig 1. - 2X

Fig 2. - 4X with variations again
------
 E       G         A                 A? A
So you rely on my faith in your kind
   E         G              A                   A? A
Or rather to continue to pretend that I'm blind
    E      G         A                 A? A
You say I made your life a living hell
   E          G         A --Pause--
And yet still let me pay you when I fell
------

Fig 3. - 4X
------
How is it you're feeling so uneasy?
How is it that I feel fine?
Life reveals what's dealt through seasons
Circle comes around each time
I've been blessed with eyes to see this
Behind the unwholsome truth you hide
Bite to remind the bitten, bigger
Mouth repaying tenfold wide
------

Fig 4. - 1X
------
A# 4X   A 3X   E
I'm     a-----bove
A#A# A#  A#  A   A    A E
Over you I'm standing above
A#  A#   A# A# A A A    E
Claiming unconditional love
G F#
Above

Fig 2. - 2X random picking/strumming thru chords  *With Solo*


Fig 2. - 4X with rhythm variations again...
------
 E      G         A                A?  A
Try to keep bad blood in the past
 E                G         A                 A? A
Never thought a chance, a chance it would last
 E             G       A                A? A 
I have strength enough enough to forgive
E   G      A --Pause--
I desire peace where I live
