 Play Riff 1 4x as intro, 4x under verse


 Play this chorus riff 3x then the held note ending:

 --4-4-7-2----2--2-2--4\2--- -(2)/(x)\(0)-
 --------0----0--0-0-------- -(2)/(x)\(0)-

 


 


 For the second verse, play the Riff 1 section 12x and then do the


 chorus again, all the way through until the hold.


 


 To get that harmonic sliding effect, place your finger above the


 12th fret on the high E string and slide down slowly, plucking


 straight 16th note harmonics until you end up above the 7th fret


 at the beginning of the 4th beat. Do this four times under "We


 are the fossils, the relics of our time... etc".


 


 At the hold, hold for 8 beats, then play this 32nd-note strumming


 pattern, similar to the end of Cherub Rock:


 


 w h h q q q q e e e e e e e e

 --2-3-4-5-6-7-8--9--10-11-12-13-14-15-x\--
 ------------------------------------------

 


 


 Under the guitar solo, play the main chorus part 3x and this


 pattern the fourth time:


 


 

 
 --------------------------------------------------------
 --------------------------------------------------------
 --6-6-9-1----1--1-1--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4/7-7-7--7-7-7-7--
 --6-6-9-2----2--2-2--6\4-4-4--4--4-4--4/7-7-7--7-7-7-7--
 --4-4-7-2----2--2-2--4\2-2-2--2--2-2--2/5-5-5--5-5-5-5--
 --------0----0--0-0-------------------------------------

 


 


 Now here's where it gets interesting... Riff 1 is altered into a


 3/4 time signature, with three measures of 3/4 time connected to


 a measure of 4/4 time. Play this entire sequence 4x, 2x without


 vocals, 2x under "quiet, i am sleeping...". At the end of the


 4th time through, slide up to an B(7th fret E string) power chord


 instead of going back down to the E power chord.


 


 repeat this section 3 times


 

 
 -------------------------------
 -------------------------------
 [3/4] *-----------------------------*
 *--2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--*
 ---2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7---

 --0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5--0-0-0-0-- 

 


 


 The lead part out of the solo into the changing time signatures


 is as follows (you need to either play it with a Boss Ocataver or


 deal with it not sounding very full-.. play twice before the


 vocals (play the notes in the [] to get the octave effect-:


 


 vib. vib.


 

 
 ---12/14--12----12/14--12------
 --------------------------12---
 ---[9/11]-[9]---[9/11]-[9]-----
 --------------------------[9]--
 -------------------------------
 -------------------------------

 


 


 Then the outro is back into 4/4 time, the normal chorus pattern


 8x all the way through to the end, where it stops on the E chord


 the eighth time through. Here's the lead part for the outro,


 starting halfway through the 4th repeat:


 vib vib vib

 Lyrics to Quiet:


 


 Quiet, I am sleeping,


 In here, we need a little hope


 For years, I've been sleeping


 Helpless, couldn't tell a soul


 


 Be ashamed


 Mess you've made


 My eyes never forget, you see


 Behind me


 


 Silent metal mercies


 Castrate boys to the bone


 Jesus, are you listening


 Up there, to anyone at all


 


 We are the fossils, the relics of our time


 Mutilate the meanings so they're easy to deny


 


 Be ashamed


 Of the mess you've made


 My eyes never forget, you see


 Behind me


 


 Quiet, quiet


 I am sleeping


 Quiet, quiet


 I am sleeping


 Quiet, shut up


 I don't trust you


 Shut up, shut up


 I can't hear you


 


 Be ashamed


 Of the mess you've made


 My eyes never forget, you see


 Behind me


 


 Behind me, the grace of falling snow


 Cover up everything you know


 Come save me from the awful sound


 Of nothing
