Tabbed by: Chris Frazier (cdf0103@mail.ecu.edu)

This is the fourth in what I hope will become a series of tabs
from Armor For Sleep's sophomore album "What To Do When You Are
Dead". I hope you enjoy them and learn something. This is one
of the more difficult tracks on the album but is also one of
my favorites. If you have any questions, comments, or additions
PLEASE e-mail them to me at cdf0103@mail.ecu.edu and I'll add/change
them if they makes sense and of course give you full credit.
