As I promised here is the guitar parts for the song.  Even
though the song actually uses keyboards, but, hey, why
not make it for such a beautiful instrument.

  2- Guitar 2 (twice)

There's a break here for the guitar.  Pretty much just drums, bass and vocals.
Although I think there is something else but I can't figure out how to emulate
it on guitar.

  5 - Guitar 2 (joins in with 4, a bit later on)

The break for the guitar happens once again.

Then part 4 and 5 go again.  5 entering a bit after 4.

  6 - Guitar 2 (10 times I think, with minor variations later on)

Play 2 twice.
Play the 4 and 5 combo.
Guitar 2 moves onto 6.

There is another part but it's on keyboard (like the intro),
and I'm having real troubles tabbing it.  If I get it some
other time I'll post it then.  It would be third guitar,
or guitar 1 would cut out of part 4 and move onto it.
 

Here's the song summary in parts:
Guitar 1| 1a break break 4  break 4
Guitar 2| 1b 2  2  break  5 break  5 6

========================================
And for those that want it, the lyrics and where
the guitar parts fit in:

[guitar parts 1a-b and 2 are played]
[guitars take a break, leave it to the drums and bass guys]

What if I were you and you were me
Still can't see the forest fire beyond the trees
now i'm standing in a field of green the colors burning far as i can see
what do you see
on my tongue the galaxies so small
here i'll drink it down and watch the world dissolve
now i'm pouring through the universe and slipping through the endless
stream of time
what would you find

[guitar 1 plays  part 4]
and i'm flying floating on the wind again
hoping it will drag me in
can't you see i'm laughing

[guitar 2 enters in with part 5]
laughing at the consequence
laughing at this circumstance
don't you know by now

[break time again, leave it to drums and bass]

stare at all the faces they go by
faster that we live the more we die
now im crashing through the open door and smiling
in a most peculiar way
what would you say

[guitar 1 plays part 4]
and i'm falling faster than a waterfall
opened up and after all
can't you see im drowning right

[guitar 2 enters in with part 5]
here in the open air
wishing i could still go clear

[guitar 2 switches to part 6]
don't you know by now
don't you know by now
this is what we are
this is what we are
don't you know by now
don't you know by now
this is what we are
this is what we are

[guitar 2 plays part 2]
[guitar 2 finishes]
[guitar 1 plays part 4]
and i'm flying floating on the wind again
hoping it will drag me in
cant' you see i'm hoping

[guitar 2 plays part 5]
wishing i could see myself
wishing i was someone else
but don't you know by now

[guitar 2 plays part 6]
don't you know by now
this is what we are
 
... repeats into fading with another part thrown in
but I'm having troubles tabbing it.  See if you can.
