   for this riff, the guitar plays straight sixteenths, 16 on each chord, while
The guitar is playing the 0 chord, the bass is playing the 8 still, it seems
Weird but if you listen to the song, thats how its played in order for it to
Sound right.

There ya go.  just listen to the song and its easy to figure out the order,
Pretty easy song.  Questions: e-mail =
  *p.s. i also have the whole toxicity tabs book, if anyone is interested in
Those tabs, e-mail me and ill send you some.
 here are the lyrics:

Back To School (mini Maggit)
So run
Right back to school
Check it
Look back I sift through all the cliques
Roaming' the halls all year, making me sick
While everyone's out tryin to make the cut
And when you think you know me right I switch it up
Behind the walls smokin' cigarettes and sippin' vodka
Hop a fence and catch a cab, aint no one can stop us
Give me a break about some other mess
What were you?
Act like it's everything you got
Push back the square
Now that you need her but you don't
So there you go
Cause back in school
We are the leaders of it all
Stop that, quit! - All that, quit!
Who ruined it? You did! Now grab a notebook and a pen
Start taking notes, I'm being everyone who's on the top
You think we're on the same page - but, oh we're not!
I'll be the man, watch your backpacks, pens and pencils
Just like he now flippin it, why you just keep it simple? You just can't go
  wrong rocking' the clothes
Coppin' the stance
'Cause really is everything that you got!
Push back the square
Now that you need her but you don't
So there you go!
Cause back in school
We are the leaders of it all
Or stop your lies
It's what you do
Or stop your lies
So run
So why don't you run, so why don't you run
So why don't you run back to school
So why don't you run, so why don't you run
All you are - Now I'm on the next page
All you are - It's time to close the book up
All you are - I'm on the next page
All you are - Close the book up now
