Next play the following bars of Rhythm Figure 2: . . .drags me under. . .
        1, 2, 3, 4,   1, 2, 3, 4,   1, 4

Some would debate as to whether the next part is solely bass, but it's fun
to beat the buhle out of your guitar, so I recommend playing it anyway.
You can always buy new strings. . .

                                               6|2---2-2-2-2|

Play Chorus four more times:. . .seems so familiar. . .

   . . .and lastly: . . .takes me home. . .

Sorry about the cryptic references, but the song is very cyclic.

===============================
SWEAT by TOOL-  OPIATE track #1
===============================
I first transcribed this song almost a year ago.  Since then a new version
of the tab has been posted and my guitar abilities have improved greatly.
In light of these two developments (along with the fact that my first tab
sucked and the additional tab still had errors in it) I sat down and
re-did the tab. 

So, here is a hybrid of my original SWEAT tab and the one submitted by
Michael Gonsalves (gonsalve@winnie.fit.edu): thanks for your insights

          KEY:
