K, so it's fairly easy just incase;
This is what stuff means. / = Slide up
                          \ = Slide down
                          X = muted string

First here's the bass part which is the same through the whole song.
You can play it where it suits you, either as shown or starting on
the A# on A.

G-------------------------------------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------------------
E---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8-----------------------------------------------

There's mainly samples during the verses, which you can get if you use
a lot of delay + reverb etc perhaps an E-bow and a slide if you have one.
The first guitar part, which comes in after the vocals stop the first
time, is played like this a few times through before fading out.
(after the line "Bring me love") It then comes in again after the line
"Neutralize every man in sight"

e--------------------------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------------------
A---15--15--15--15--etc----------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

Then the second, distorted guitar part comes in after the previous part
has built up for a while, after the line "Love ya" is repeated a bunch
of times.

e--------------------------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------------------------
G--------5/-10---17\-8---5/-10---------------------------------------
D---10---5/-10---17\-8---5/-10---------------------------------------
A---10---3/-8----15\-6---3/-8----------------------------------------
E---8----------------------------------------------------------------

The first time through you can kinda just play it like that, let the
chords ring out but the second time you kinda have to pick at it, I
suppose improvise and kinda hack at the chords, just hit random notes
and stuff, you've heard the song so you know what I mean, make it sound
messy. After the first time through there's this fill.

e--------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------
G---17\-X-X-X-X---17-17\-X-X-X--17\----
D---17\-X-X-X-X---17-17\-X-X-X--17\----
A---15\-X-X-X-X---15-15\-X-X-X--15\----
E-------X-X-X-X---------X-X-X----------

Then after the second it just plays the high C;
e--------
B--------
G---17---
D---17---
A---15---
E--------

Then again in the verse there's just a heap of effects, lots of delay, reverb,
just kinda ambient noises etc.

Then after the line "Come from way above" the guitar comes in and follows the
bass

G--------------------------------------
D---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-10-----------------
A---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-10-----------------
E---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8------------------

Then after a while another guitar comes in and plays the higher octave of that part,
starting on the 13th fret on the A string, can't be arsed to tab it out, then after
a while again just play the high c on 15 on the A string, which I also can't be
