Look under the band name 18 Hertz and then play 
the song to get a feel for the rhythm guitar and 
the bends and the em scale picking throughout.  
It's kind of hard to describe in tab you have to  
hear it to feel it.This song is played with  
heavy distortion in the Chorus, Grunge Guitar 
and shimmer guitar and acoustic in the verses.  
You need three guitars for this tune. Rhythm, lead  
and a grunge guitar for the Chorus. 

Play this on lead guitar with the rhythm guitar  
to start the song

Play these notes in the em scale with severe bends as the rhythm guitar plays Verse 1 Em to G Rhythm Guitar Use Riff 1 throughout first 4 lines of the first verse with Lead guitar. Start the riff when the singing stars and play along with the rhythm guitar Verse 1 I blindly follow orders I'm given every day Without worrying about the consequences They might send my way Play these chords while playing the opening riff with the lead guitar for second part of verse 1 Em While people all G Around me A Suffer and Em Die Em I blindly follow G Orders A Living out a Em Lie Chorus Use Riff 1 throughout first 4 lines with Rhythm guitar When there is no answer And I can't understand I stop and ask the lord above If he can lend a hand Use opening riff with these chords in this part of the Chorus Em When there is no G Answer A And I can't Em Understand Em I stop and ask the G Lord above A If he can lend a hand Em Go back to rhythm guitar and riff 1 Verse 2 I blindly follow orders While death is all around Perhaps a little less bloodshed Needs to hit the ground Play chords and opening riff here I no longer follow orders I just quit my job Now the only orders that I'm taking Are the ones I get from God Chorus same as above When there is no answer And I can't understand I stop and ask the lord above If he can lend a hand When there is no answer And I can't understand I stop and ask the lord above If he can lend a hand Play this Riff over and over in the em scale when the singing starts,pick down on the B string and pick up on the E really fast to get the feel of it: It's the same first initial sequence as Paint It Black by Keith Richards different picking.
