Those are the 3 main licks.  I'll get back to you about the 
solos and the lyrics.  I'm gonna hit Out of Focus now...

OK...Tons of people have tabbed this song incorrectly I think.  
this is a really easy way to play it:

  |----------------------------------------------------
  |--0-h-1---0-h-1-------------------------------------
  |--0-------0-----------------------------------------
  |-------------------h5----5---5--5-------------------
  |-------------------h5----5---5--5-------------------
  |-------------------h5----5---5--5-------------------

       "h" = a hammer on

 - This is the main riff of the song.  I don't have the time to tab 
   the rest of it but you'll find its really easy with the dropped-D 
   tuning. If you are still having problems with it or are just 
   musically retarded, write me.
