                I was awed into dismay when I saw no trace of this song on the internet.  So 
I decided to figure it out (guitar-wise).  I find that some of the lead 
guitar lines are difficult to figure out so I have just transcribed the
simplest chordal parts of this song.  I am not sure that most of the minor
chords are sevenths but the song has a cool sound to it and minor sevenths
usually do that.  So examine this and write back if you find a problem or if
you want to discuss how it is possible for an object~s dimension to approach
infinity while it~s mass approaches zero while approaching the speed of 
light.  

The opening riff is:

E ---------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|---|
B -------------------6-|-------------------6h8p6-|-------------------6-|---|
G -------------------7-|-------------------7-----|-------------------7-|-2-|
D -------------------7-|-------------------7-----|-------------------7-|-3-|
A -----3--0-7-0-3-5----|-----3--0-7-0-3-5--------|-----3--0-7-0-3-5----|-3-|
E -3h5-----------------|-3h5---------------------|-3h5-----------------|-1-|

Of course you hold the F chord at the end then the verse appears:

Dm        Am7  Gm7

      Dm       C        Bb
Being cool too ...
Dm           Am7     Gm7

       D5             C5

         Am   Em

(very quickly now, the guitar and bass plays:

G ---------
D ---------  When the guitar plays the 6th fret (the Bb note), it also plays
A -5p0-7---  a power chord on it and therefore from that note the guitar
E -------6-  plays a series of chords that go:

Bb5   G5  G5/Bb5   F5    C5    Bb5

Cool solo part:   A5   F    A5    F    G5    F     A

all I just did here was to write down the rhythm chords, I have and will not
do the solo (as little as it may seem).  If you listen to the album, you can
figure out how these chords come in.  The G5/Bb5 part is when the guitar
slides from G5 to Bb5.  Listen and you shall hear, my child.  Anyway, the 
rest goes something like this:

       D5             C5
If you see me ...
       D5             C5
If you see me ...
         Am   Em
Knock me do...
Em(?)
I~m not bigger ...
       D5             C5
If you see me ...
       D5             C5
If you see me ...
         Am   Em
Knock ...
Em(?)
I~m not ...
       D5             C5
If you see me ...
       D5             C5
If you see me ...
         Am   Em
Knock me down
Em(?)
I~m not bigger ...
       D5             C5
If you see me ....
       D5             C5

         Am   Em
Knock me down

       F#5            E5

       F#5            E5

         C#m  G#m

Please escuse all the redudancy and other things.  I shall explain the 
chords now and how I play them.  Please remember that this is my best 
estimate of this sad song.  If you find any errors or so on could you please
Em(?) chord does not really exist.  I am not sure if there is another chord
that ends the normal chorus so I presume that the Em chord sustains.  So my
denoting Em(?) means that I am not sure if it is the Em chord that is 
playing at that time.  And also, my ways of playing these chords are not by
gospel.  Anyway, here we go:


     E  A  D  G  B  E
     ----------------
Dm   x  5  7  7  6  x
Am7  5  7  5  5  5  x
Gm7  3  5  3  3  3  x
C    x  3  5  5  5  x
Bb   x  1  3  3  3  x
A5   5  7  7  x  x  x
Em7  0  2  2  4  3  3  <-- a very weird way to play the Em7 chord
Bm7  x  2  4  2  3  2
Am7* x  0  2  0  1  0
D    x  x  0  2  3  2
B5   x  2  4  4  x  x
D5   x  5  7  7  x  x
C5   x  3  5  5  x  x
Am   x  0  2  2  1  0
Em   0  2  2  0  0  0
C#m7 x  4  6  4  5  4
G#m7 4  6  4  4  4  x
F#m7 2  4  2  2  2  x
Bb5  6  7  7  x  x  x
G5   3  5  5  x  x  x
F5   x  8 10 10  x  x
F    1  3  3  2  x  x
A    5  7  7  6  x  x
F#5  x  9 11 11  x  x
E5   x  7  9  9  x  x
C#m  x  4  6  6  5  4
G#m  4  6  6  4  4  x
E    0  2  2  1  0  0
B    x  2  4  4  4  x


Now that I have wasted countless computer space (and if this is printed out,
the trees will die).  But I hope this helps out a lot.  Bye-bye...
