h = hammer on
/ = slide up
\ = slide down

verse two:
chorus again

then:  (play three times, then riff 3)
---3---3---3-3-0-0---0---0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---

                                  "conversation's
   hell..."

bridge: start off with an e-minor, then it's pretty much whatever you 
want until the next pre-chorus.  Here are some of the important parts, 
though.

rhy fill 1: (every once and a while...)
-----------
---2-3-2---
---2-2-2---
-----------
-----------
-----------

and then there's a cool base part:

A-----7-9-10-9-7-0-2-4/5-2-0-2-0-----
E---0----------------------------3---

and then the pre-chorus:
---3---2-3-2---2-3-5---3-5-7---5-7-9---7-9-10----10----10-play 10s
----------------------------------------------10----10----a bunch of
----------------------------------------------------------times, then
----------------------------------------------------------just start 
----------------------------------------------------------going up the
----------------------------------------------------------neck

guitar 2
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------5/6/7/8/9/10/
-----------------------------------------------5/6/7/8/9/10/ and such
---------------------------------------------0-3/4/5/6/7/8-/

chorus again and then "converation's hell" again and if you've ever 
heard the song before in your life you know how it goes.  End with riff 
3 and a long drawn-out last chord.  I probably forgot some parts, but my 
hands are getting tired.  E-mail me at captain_zodiac@hotmail.com with 
questions/suggestions.  Thanks.
