Hey all, i just wanna say that this song kicks ass, even though its not hardcore
like all the other songs on the album. Im prolly one of the most hardcore Used fans
youll ever meet, so if you wanna talk Used with me, just get me on AIM. Oh yeah, PLEASE
RATE THIS!!!

INTRO/VERSE:  This part is cool because theres soo much room for improv. Just find a
way that sounds/feels cool to you
