                I only had time to figure out the chords on this one, for now.  As soon as I have time, I'll TAB it out and post it here.  

	They play it detuned 1/2 step, so, if you want to detune, play the chords NOT in parentesis.  If you don't wnat to hassle with detuning,  just play the chord in parenthesis.

Intro (first riff):  E(Eb)(4x)
G(F#)                                         E(Eb)  
Hitched a ride to the peaceful side of town
G(F#)                                         E(Eb)
Then proceeded where thieves were no longer found
G(F#)     C(B)         
Can't crash now I've been waiting for this
G(F#)     C(B)
Won't crash now I've found some encouragement

Chorus:
G(F#)         
Precious Declaration Reads
                                    C(B)
Yours is yours and mine you leave alone now
G(F#)
Precious Declaration says
                              C(B)     
I belive all hope is dead no longer


Break: Eb(4x)


G(F#)                                  (E)Eb
New meanings to the words I feed upon
G(F#)                                  (E)Eb
Wake within my veins elements of freedom
G(F#)     C(B)
Can't break now I've been living for this
G(F#)     C(B)
Won't break now I'm cleansed with hopefulness

(Chorus)


Bridge:

A(G#)
Once I jumped through hoops of fire
B(Bb)
High and far as you require
A(G#)
I was blind but now I see
B(Bb)
Salvation has discovered me


E(Eb) (4x)

G(F#)  C(B)  G(F#)  C(B)

Chorus (2x)

Outro:  E(Eb) (4x)



                                  
					Have fun!!!!       
					Joel
PRECIOUS DECLARATION



To start off, if you want to play along with the CD, you have to 
tune your guitar down half a step.  It's not a very difficult song
to play.  The hardest part is that awesome killer riff that starts
off the song and occurs at different places throughout.  Well here 
it is, enjoy!


Drums enter then guitar one starts of with the following riff:

Riff 1

|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|---------------------X-X-|
|-------0-------------X-X-|
|---0h1---2-0---X-2-2-X-X-|
|-0-----------3-X-0-0-X-X-|

An alternate way of playing this if your distortion tends to get 
muddy with the open strings ringing is like this:

|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|---------------------X-X-|
|---------------------X-X-|
|-------5-------X-2-2-X-X-|
|-0-5h6---7-5-3-X-0-0-X-X-|



Guitar one plays this riff twice on it's own and is then joined 
begins.

The verses are a combination of a muted G power chord and Riff 1

Verse:
G                                          Riff 1 (twice)
Hitched a ride to the peaceful side of town
G                                          Riff 1 (twice)   
Then proceeded..............no longer found


The prechourus has a couple of clean or slightly distorted guitars
plus the lead (which is not tabbed).  Open chords sound best here.
The C chord is actually a Cadd9, it sounds better with the Cadd9 
you can get by with just a regular C

Prechourus:
G           C
Can't crash now I've been waiting for this
G           C 
Won't crash now I found some encouragement


In the chourus, the guitars become distorted again.  More
power chords here 

Chourus:
G                                             
Precious declaration reads yours 
                  C 
is mine you leave alone now
G                                                   
Precious declaration says I 
                         C            D#
believe all hope is dead no longer


The only other part different from the above parts is the bridge 
which is just distorted power chords

Bridge:
A
Once I jumped through hoops of fire
B
High and far as you required 
A
I was blind but now I see
   B                        D
Salvation has discovered me

The rest of the song is just repeats of the above sections.  
Listen to the song, they are to figure out.  I've been working
on the leads a little.  If any one has sugestions for them maybe
you could post them or add them to this file.
