       to me. This is how I play it and it sounds much closer, in my opinion.)

(Note: The timing on these two riffs is the same, I just spaced it out to
       fit those palm-muted A's in.)

(Note: For chorus, when Al is screaming "Burning inside!" Play the tail end 
       of the VERSE riff, but sped up.)

þþCANNIBAL SONG (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker/C. Connelley)þþ

(Note: There is no guitar in this song, just bass, drums, and saxophones. 
       I figured the bass out on a guitar, so it may be a little off. 
       The saxophones are beyond me.)

       I figured out the bass on a guitar, so it might be a little off.)

þþDREAM SONG (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker)þþ

(Note: This song is pretty much all keyboards and drum noises, I couldn't 
       find any guitar to transcribe in it.)

That's it. It sounds pretty much correct. The only area where I would say 
it might be wrong is in "Breathe," because I'm not really sure whether that
first chord is an E5 or if it should be a D5, which would necessitate tuning
down. I've played it both ways and find it kind of hard to tell the 
difference. However, that's the only one I'm not sure on. Enjoy.
