Crushing Me by Stabbing Westward

This is an awesome song, no doubt about it.  This my second
favorite SW song of all time.  Beautiful guitar work, and
powerful lyrics.

Tune Down 1/2 step

Eb
Ab
Db
Gb
Bb
Eb


The intro, bend each chord slightly. (Clean)

 G  Bb A  G#
--------------
--------------
--------------
--)--)--)--)--
-5)-8)-7)-6)--
-3--6--5--4---


When it gets heavy, play this... (verses)
When you play the muted strings, place your hands at a G# chord
and mute the strings there...  That will give you the correct
harmonics...

-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-5-5-8-8-7-7-x-x-x-x-x-x-
-5-5-8-8-7-7-x-x-x-x-x-x-
-3-3-6-6-5-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-

You can hear that.  It's very quiet, and is played during the
verses at that very quiet part...

------------------------
------------------------
------------------------
----5-----5-----5-------
------5--5----5---------
--3-----3---3-----------  repeat


PLay this... it is part of the bridge when he sings It's 
Crushing me...  and you hear chords ring out...

---1---4----1-3----1---4----1--3-3-3--


Then comes the heavy palm mute part to end the song...


its all on the Eb (6th) string...

palm mute

1-3-3-3-1-3-3-3-1-3-3-3-1-3-3-3--------0-3-0-4-0-5-0-6-

Thats it...

Now the words...

  I'm feeling the weight of the world

  And it's crushing me

  I'm feeling the weight of everyday life

  And it's crushing me

  How much more will it take

  How much more

  Until it breaks me

  This world...  Is crushing me

  
  I'm feeling the weight of the world

  And it's crushing me

  I'm feeling the weight of everyday life

  And it's crushing me

  How much more will it take

  How much more

  Until it breaks me

  This world...  Is crushing me

 
  I've spent every moment since the day you left 

  In an attempt to rebuild a shattered remains of a pathetic life...

  Working to be someone you can be proud of and someone 
  
  You can love again.

  I have given you everything I have to give; everything I'm 

  Able to give, taking into consideration your reluctance 

  To accept anything I have to offer.

  I'm tired of living this way for you

  I'm tired of living my life for you

  I'm tired of living my life in everybody else's world.

  I'm tired of living my life in everyone else's world

  I'm tired of protecting you
 
  I'm tired of life



  I'm feeling the hate of the world

  And it's crushing me

  I'm feeling the hate of the world

  And it's crushing me

  I swallow the hate

  Betrayal and lies
  
  Swallow it whole and shove deep down inside of me

  Feeling the weight of the world

  And it's crushing me

  And it's crushing me

  And it's crushing me

  Oh and it's crushing me



  I swallow the hate

  Betrayal and lies

  Swallow it whole and shove it deep down inside of me

  How much more will it take

  How much more until it breaks me

  Feeling the weight of the world

  Yes i'm feeling the weight of the world

  And it's crushing me
