Verse:


Riff A, bass only

    Crawled away from me, slipped ....

Guitar enters, playing root notes with bass

    Slid away from me, crept ....


Riff A, full blast

    What you're tryin' to say is you ....


Chorus:

a |--h------------------------------|--h------------------------------|

    1       2       3       4         1       2       3       4


Verse 2:

Bass plays Riff A chord diagramA augmentedA

    Crawled away from me, slipped ....

Bass plays Riff A, guitar plays the following variation:

g |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
d |-----------------------------2/4-|-----------------------0-----0---|
a |--h----------------2---4~--4--h--|--h----------------2---0---------|
e |-0/2-2-0-2~--0-2-----------------|-0/2-2-0-2~--0-2-----------------|
    1       2       3       4         1       2       3       4

    Slid  away from me,               crept ....

Then guitar and bass both play root notes as in first verse:

    Tried to keep you down, but ....


Riff A chord diagramA augmentedA again, full blast:

    What you're tryin' to say is ....


Chorus is played the same as before, fourth time Riff A chord diagramC majorC leads into Riff A chord diagramD MajorD
as follows:
                                         Riff A chord diagramD MajorD   repeat 4 times
g |-5-----4-------------------------|---------------------------------|

a |-3-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-2---5-5---|-4-------(pick scrape)-----5-5---|
e |-------------------------0-3-3-0-|-2-------( 4th time  )---0-3-3-0-|
    4   5   6   7   8   9   10  11    1       2       3       4

                                              Is ....(2x)
                                              This is my ....(2x)


Riff D, variation (measures stretched to accomodate the faster picking)

g |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
d |-4---------------4---------------4-------------------5---5-------|
a |-4---------------4---------------2-------------------5---5-------|
e |-2-------x-x-x-x-2-------x-x-x-x-2-------x-x-x-x-0---3---3---0---|
    1               2               3               4

                    This    is      my      ....(3x)
                    This    is      ....

Switch to doubletime feel.  Bass and guitar play 16th notes on low A chord diagramF#F# for
six measures, then guitar switches to A chord diagramF#F# on A chord diagramD MajorD string 4th fret for next
two measures.  Next eight measures, bass stays on A chord diagramF#F# and guitar plays:

a |----|-4~-|-5~-|-2~-|-4~-|----|-----------------|-------b---r-----|
e |-2~-|----|----|----|----|-0~-|-0-2---0-2---0-2-|---0-2-/-3-\-2---|
                                  1   2   3   4     1   2   3   4

End doubletime feel

Riff A:
    Say   you   won't   go.....


Riff A chord diagramBB  (actually, play last two measures of Riff A chord diagramBB twice)
    (mumbled)  Won't go... won't go...  say it...

3rd "verse" - Bass plays Riff A chord diagramA augmentedA once while guitar holds last A chord diagramF#F# of Riff A chord diagramBB


Riff A, guitar plays root notes only:
    (Vocal rests first two measures)
    Get you in a strangle ....


Riff A chord diagramA augmentedA full blast once again:

    What you're tryin' to say is ....


Chorus - Riff A chord diagramC majorC four times again, last time ends like this:

g |-------2-----5-----4-------------------------|---------|
d |-4-----2-----5-----4-------------------5-5---|-4-------|
a |-4-----0-----3-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-2---5-5---|-4-------|
e |-2-----------------------------------0-3-3-0-|-2-------|
    1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10  11


Disclaimer:  This may not be exactly the way Tool plays it.  It is, however,
             exactly the way I play it, for what that's worth.
