layne and the riff, the opening riff , goes like this:

[Chorus 1]

Bm       G
Into the flood again
G                   Bm    G
Same old trip it was back then
Bm          Bm
So I made a big mistake
G             Bm      G
Try to see it once my way

go back to the opening riff and play it once, then move on to the second verse, 
just like the first, different lyrics:


     Drifting bodies Sole desertion       Flying not yet quite the notion

D#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C#|-----------------------------------2-------------------------------------2-|

D#|-2--~2--~2-3~~~----2--~2--~2-3~~~3---2--~2--~2-3~~~------2--~2--~2-3~~~3---|


[Chorus 2]

Bm       G
Into the flood again
G                   Bm    G
Same old trip it was back then
Bm          Bm
So I made a big mistake
G             Bm      G
Try to see it once my way


(go back to the opener riff, then to the third chorus)


[Chorus 3]

Bm       G
Into the flood again
G                   Bm    G
Same old trip it was back then
Bm          Bm
So I made a big mistake
G             Bm      G
Try to see it once my way

(now it's on to the bridge and the outro):


[Outro]

D7   G#      G              E
Am I wrong?  Have I run too far to get home?
D7     G#     G             E
Have I gone?  Left you here alone.
D7   G#      G              E
Am I wrong?  Have I run too far to get home?
D7     G#     G             E
Have I gone?  Left you here alone.

D7  D7  D7     D7    D7
If  I   would, could you?
