The decimal numbers in parentheses are natural harmonics.  2.4 is
the harmonic played 4/10 of the way into the second fret, etc.

End this phrase with three open D string (thickest string) dives down 
(see (4))

(1) -  Pull up and vibrate note with whammy bar simultaneously
(2) -  That is a natural harmonic between the 3rd and 4th frets.  
Pre-dive on the whammy and return slowly with the bar to the next note 
(same one)
(3) - Dive and vibrato note with the whammy bar simultaneously
(4) - predive first open E to C#, then raise note to D#, then dive to 
back to C#, raise to normal E, and then finish this stanza by diving to 
slack

Lyrics (nobody knows for sure what they are =)

You will soon come with me to die
And find that death is not the end
Who I say who will who won’t be freed
Tell me that this is not the end complete

Even as the end’s complete
Finding strength with one’s defeat
Living in an endless score
Killing me with battled sores

I’m the one that’s sent to kill 
Feeling all destructive will
Bring forth one dead sole decay
The end’s complete’s the final day

When the time has come to bare
Dying young fall to despair
To bring forth one dead sole decay
The end’s complete’s the final day
