                        Vices Like Vipers - Oh, Sleeper
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, Vices like Vipers!  This is sort of my take on the
song, because there are many effects and the metality 
kinda drowns out the lead sometimes, so I had to
figure it out on my own a bit.  I put in the lyrics to give
this thing some sort of order, so hopefully that helps.
Uh, it's pretty tough so good luck!

*May 08- I saw some live stuff and heard suggestions and
decided this needed some editing.  I added stuff too.  Word.

Intro

'You're scarlet soaked and bold and the sheep's eyes locked to mine, 
sink to my bones. Though your lips still drip, intentions, they keep me wanting more...

It's the wool to hide the wolves."

"And under these toes from where we last spoke, Your words laid so firm.
But I did not shed that skin like You said.
When the mason neglects the mortar, looks become deceiving
and when the bricks start to fall, I'll be the one crawling
down this road so dark."

(For the sake of ease, I'm going to say both guitars play
this riff even though its pretty complicated.)

of on the 10th fret of the "G" string, sliding down
arpeggio section... like this:

To make the space used more efficiently, I'm gonna just list the endings
of the riffs, since those are the only things that change.

Ending 3-same as ending 1

Ending 4-guitar 2 has the same ending as ending 2
but plays it twice.  Guitar 1 plays the same pattern
as ending 2, but the second time plays the octave a fret
lower.

surprise is no excuse for the traps that you left
in the wake of warning.  So this is the warning
you fail to learn."

And the ridiculously sick final breakdown.  This was
the hardest part of the song to work out, and I'm not
100% sure, so feel free to tinker with it.


"This, my lust, the pornos and the sl*ts.
Take, my lust, this world's love.
Great Councilor, take what's left
Great Councilor, take what's left..."
