2:45 - 3:40 RIFF E e-x-| This is played above the nut, not even on B-x-| the neck of the guitar, Paul plays a 6 string G-x-| guitar, with half the strings fastened on each side of the guitar head, Paul only strikes the 3 thinnest strings (for the first sound)
RIFF E CONT'D: e-x-x-| This is played right where the strings B-x-x-| come out of the bridge, make sure to G-x-x-| mute the strings (with your hand) D-x-x-| Paul strikes from e up to D.

Most of this is pretty accurate, not 100% but close I watched Paul play this live twice and reviewed the videotape, so some of this (the intro) is correct, some of it was tabbed by ear.
LYRICS: A darker whole concealed, within the folds of a truth revealed A blank passage, unread chapter, in my book of memories
It crawls though the space behind my face trying to complicate the scene that surrounds me slapped in the face, a bitter taste lingers to penetrate, amuse and astound me
Striving to widen the spaces of consciousness It still keeps me locked up inside myself Searching for some sort of revelation Failing to confront the situation I keep slipping I push it down, beneath the surface Ive forgotten, but Its still there
It crawls though the space behind my face rying to complicate the scene that surrounds me slapped in the face, a bitter taste lingers to penetrate, amuse and astound me
and I cant forget and I cant forgive and I still regret and I still re-live
standing on the edge I see emptiness and fading dreams shallow pools of everything nothing seems to comfort me born into obscurity cannot find security clouded by the hate I feel look to what I know is real
nothing but the world around me
still I fall, back through still I fall, in to a darker hole a darker whole
and I cant forget and I cant forgive and I still regret and I still re-live
