**VERSE**
The intro is something like :
 
 e---------17--17--17--17------
 b-----------------------------
 g-----------13--13--13--------

The chorus is a continuous riff. Try this :
E e
A = x0222x (play open but play all strings with index finger)
Followed by
? = x06xxx
The timing isn't difficult to work out, although the song begins with the string on the
6th fret (ensure that you play the A string open with this).
At the end of each lyric line, either bend the strings in the A chord as hard as you can (!)
or move the shape up to fret 3, then 4 in quick succession.
**BRIDGE**
E e
D = x577xx (or open)
G#5 = 466xxx
F#5 = 244xxx
E = x799xx (or open)
E5 = 022xxx
[D] I am idiot drug hive, the virgin.....etc
.....[G#5]tattered a[F#5]nd the tor[E5]n[G#5] [F#5] [E5]
[D]I've been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else[E]
The F#/G#/E part can be also played repetedly on single strings as
opposed to powerchords (I don't know which it actually is) :
G# = g string fret 1
F# = d : 4
E = d : 2
**CHORUS**
Is a version of A, played in the following phrase, with the strings held
permentantly on fret 9 and 10 and hammering on/off on 11 with 3rd and little
fingers. Listen to the record for the rythmn :
 
 E---x----x----x
 A---0----0----0
 D---11---9----9
 G---11---9----9
 B---10---10---10
 e---x----x----x 

(repeat to rythmn)
(see above) G#5 F#5 E5 D5 C#5 B E
I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mail - er I spat out Plath and Pinter
G#5= x/11/13/13/x/x
F#5= x/9/11/11/x/x
E5= x799xx
D5= x577xx
C#5= x466xx
B= x244xx
The run of 5 chords might be played on just the one string - it isn't clear - but the B on
"AND..." is definitely right as is the E (the above is how I play it, moving quickly along the
chords whilst strumming and it sounds cool, so.... :)
ending with
Em11 = x/x/x12/12/12 in 3 rapid bursts after the chorus
