fingers. Listen to the record for the rythmn :

Riff 2

(repeat to rythmn)

I am stronger than Mensa,  Miller and Mail  - er     

  E*   D    C#     B          E  
I spat out  Plath  and  Pinter

I am all the things that you regret

               G#     F#  E*   D       C#     B      Em11
The truth that wash -  es that learned how to spell

(The run of 5 chords above can also be played just on the one string; it's not entirely clear from the record but this is how it's reproduced live).
