Wait, I hear it again.
Don't turn on the light until we hear the way it ends.

Under Peruvian skies Vanessa regretfully waits.

The story unfolds in her eyes, where midnight hysteria's
[FM]No big surprise.

Hey, I hope you know
I'm taking all this with me when I go.
Shame, you're not to blame.
I'm the monster you created
In your daddy's name.

-->Here the x's represent harmonics played on the
low E string between the third and fifth fret. I
don't know what they are for sure, but you can
experiment with them. Plus the B-flat chord may not
be exactly right.
