Play Rhythm Figure 1 twice: . . .sun is setting cool again. . . [the first time normal. . .the second time muffle all except E-chords]

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. . .

Play Intro 4 times, then play Bar 2 of 3|-----------| Rhythm Figure 3 two more times, then play 4|2---2-2-2-2| Intro 4 more times, and finally, play. . . . 5|2---2-2-2-2| 6|2---2-2-2-2|
Play Chorus four more times:. . .seems so familiar. . .
Now play these bars from Rhythm Figure 2: . . .the way you whisper. . . 1,2,3,4, 1,2,3,4, 1,2,3,4, 1,2

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: ________________________ | | | X = blocking | | x = palm muting | | / = slide | | p = pull off | | h = hammer on | | | | |----| | | |.--.| | | |.--.| means repeat | | |----| | |________________________|
The riffs are in the same order they occur in the song:
