Note: This is my second published tab...And second Saliva tab...

	Gotta give props to Saliva.  Their new sound is just awesome.  This song is one of the
best on their new album I think.
	Let me just say now that not everything is right.  This is the first tab I've seen of this 
song, so I'm just relying on my ear, I have no other sources.  If you can do better please take 
this and fix it and post it back up here so no one else hase to suffer through my mistakes. 
Otherwise, feel free to email me with suggestions @  Good luck and enjoy!

*********************Tuned half step down to Drop-D tuning****************
	But I play it like this cuz its easier to tune back and forth:


Intro - Mucky(Some distortion):
e|-------------------------------4th time play this:----------------------
G|----------6--6-6~4----------------------6-------------------------------  Play 4X
D|--4~6-4-x-4--4-4~2--------------4~6-4-x-4--let ring---------------------

[ Tab from: ]
Intro (Part 2) heavy distortion:
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------  Play 8X

On the 4th time the second guitar comes in with:
G|-----------2------------------------------------------------------------  Play 2X

Verse (soft/light distortion)(Its actually supposed to be a base line, but 
you can just substitute these chords instead):

4		     0 
Love to be beside you, the way you smell,
4		       0
The way your lips feel and your fingernails.

The way your fingers crawl up my spine,

The way you always make me the last in line.

I carry the weight of the world as the past is unfurled, but I won't stop to wonder.

Going through this life on my own made me as cold as a stone. I'm a ship going under.

And I'd tell you this, but I don't know how.

I'm caving in and I'm falling out and I can't resist

And I can't rebound with the weight of the world as the world falls down.

It's the way you thrill me, then pull away.

The way you seem to kill me a little more each day.

And it's what you're thinking in your twisted mind

The way your body trembles when it's next to mine.

This pain I think about it everyday, it tells me I'm never gonna get away.

I know it's over, but I can't escape memories and how to face another day.
