How do you wire up headphones with a microphone to a 1/4'' phono jack with 4 rings? Answered

My friend, asked me to fix his headphones for him.  The jack has broken from excessive stress.  They are the metal skullkandy, with a built in microphone.  I opened up the jack and, am really confused by what I see.  There are four contact points on the jack but 5 wires.  one ground, one green one blue one striped red and one striped blue. I have no idea what to do.  There is a button on the microphone module but I don't see how that would wire up to the jack.  Any ideas?
