Riff 1                                    *
I am an architect, they call me a butcher
Riff 1                                  *

Is a version of A, played in the following phrase, with the strings held 
permentantly on fret 9 and 10 and hammering on/off on 11 with 3rd and little
fingers. Listen to the record for the rythmn :

Riff 2

(repeat to rythmn)

Riff 2                              G#5*    F#5*
I am stronger than Mensa,  Miller and Mail  - er     

  E*   D    C#     B          E  
I spat out  Plath  and  Pinter

Riff 2
I am all the things that you regret

               G#     F#  E*   D       C#     B      Em11
The truth that wash -  es that learned how to spell

(The run of 5 chords above can also be played just on the one string; it's not entirely clear from the record but this is how it's reproduced live).
