          and if you just want to say thank you, then that would be very appreciated   :)
          Johnny uses lots of interesting thirds in this song, and together with flea's
          bass roots it makes these sort of psychedelic diads.  Nifty.  But it sounds
          bad playing the guitar parts on your own... or you can get another guitarist
          to play flea's parts because they're pretty high.  Anyway, this song's
          pretty good.  :)

          You got to pick all the notes _very_ fast in this song.
          You have to pick more than I have tabbed, I just thought
          it would get messy tabbing every note that was hit.
          Use alternate picking!! ie up/down\up/down etc. for speed


          key:

          5/7        slide up
          x          muted note (deaden the string when you pluck it)              Intro: muted strings

                                 0:48

          x4 means hit that note four times.  I couldn't fit them
          in because of the double figures.
          Also, if you're wondering why your bass doesn't have
          a 5555th fret... man, i dont know what to tell you.  ;)


              Chorus:  Step on that distortion pedal!

              2:05                        x1, then                          x4          As far as I'm concerned, this is the whole song.
          There is a kind of half-arsed guitar solo for the outro, but it isn't special.
          It's hard to duplicate that, it's hard to tab - because, basically, if you
          get a metal zone pedal (the ones that heavy metal bands use) and turn
          distortion up full, then you can just about not even touch the strings,
          and that's what your guitar will do *laughing*  :)
          If you're in a band, just impro a better solo.  There's no point
          trying to copy everything note for note, but if you really want it...
          I probably wont get around to it until college ends in a few weeks.
          Lyrics:

          Deep inside of a parallel universe
          It's getting harder and harder
          To tell what came first

          Under water where thoughts can breathe Easily
          Far away you were made in a sea
          Just like me

          Chorus:
          Christ I'm a sidewinder I'm a
          California King
          I swear it's everywhere
          It's everything

          Staring straight up into the sky
          Oh my my a solar system that fits
          In your eye Microcosm

          You could die but your never dead spider web
          Take a look at the stars in
          Your head fields of space kid

          Chorus x 2

          Psychic changes are born in your heart Entertain
          A nervous breakthrough that makes us the same
          Bless your heart girl

          Kill the pressure it's raining on
          Salty Cheeks
          When you hear the beloved song
          I am with you

          Chorus x 2
