This part is a little tricky: the chord is lightly palm-muted, the 0's are heavily palm-muted, and the x's are just pick scratches.

*NOTES FOR LIVE VERSION*
This is the one found on the Testify single
In the live version, Tom plays these excerpts from Township Rebellion:

 3 times	1 time			     then the rest
 Riff1a		 Riff1b			     Riff1c
|---------------|---------------------------|---------------------|
|---------------|---------------------------|---------------------|
|---------------|---------------------------|---------------------|
|---------------|---------------------------|---------------------|
|-3h5-5-5-------|-3h5-5-5-------------------|--3h5-5-5--------3-5-|
|---------0--00-|---------0--00--0-000-0-00-|----------0--00--3-5-|


Then this:

|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-3-5-5-5-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-33-55-|
|---------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-33-55-|
  . . . . . . . . . . . . .. .. 

End with Riff1c again. 

Also, Tom uses a phaser on the second verse of the live version and the solo
is a little different, while i didnt tab out all of it this is the ending:

E|-12-13-12-----12-13-12----|
B|----------12-----------15-|
