C = C major

Gb = G flat major

Bdim. = B diminished


Part A (O0:00 - 01:22):

Here, A minor and C major are played with the two top strings (B and high 
E) being open, but still strummed.


Am           C
Sleep as the goer

    Am                      C
the bridge that watches the light speed through

Bbm                 Cm
And cries while the spirit stumbles

Bbm      Cm       Am
and inside missile for the protection of you

        Am                 C
Maybe it's silent

    Am                  C     
the voice can't bear anymore strain

Bbm                Cm
but speaks without even knowing

    Bbm            Cm                        Am
and streams out of sight in the direction of truth


Part B (01:23 - 01:51):



Gm                 C                 Dm
There's no reason there's no secret to decode

Gm                   C                 Dm           G
if you can't save it, leave it dying on the road

Gm                C                Dm       C
wide open arms can feel so cold, so cold

Feel so cold

Part C (01:52 - 02:09):


Part D (02:10 - 04:44):

Transition - Play A major until the singing comes in.

Balance the books, the ledges, the loons

the disappointed look on the faces

that squint at the moon

Dbm                       Bm
I've seen it with shadows enhanced

         Dbm                   Bm
and then vote to decide who'll advance

Silver jet plane, making a turn

                        Gbm                          E
exciting the brain that expects it to crash and then burn

Dbm                             Bm
it's not the life lesson I'd've guessed

Dbm                             Bm
if you're conscious you must be depressed

            A                   Dbm
or at least cynical

But someone might still eat the steaks

even if they're tough

Spending the day

chewing the fat

Bm                  E                        A
floating away isn't rough but it's not enough

Oh Marianne, pass me the joint

the sandpaper's tan

   Gbm                     E
go-getters are surfing the point

    Dbm                      Bm
and London's a cratch on the lens

     Dbm            Bm
it's over before it begins

Silk 'round her neck falls down to her shoulders

                     Gbm                      E
the older I get, the more I suspect there's a trick

    Dbm                        Bm
but really there's no trick at all

     Dbm                 Bm
that doesn't result in a fall

     A                  Dbm
or a faltering

But something might spit out the bait

even if it's real

Rolling away

missing the spoke

Bm                         E                  A           Dbm
close to the ground like a wheel but it's not joke

Holding the line

clutching the phone

Bm                E                   A
nobly wasting the night, but it isn't right

it's not right

Smelling for blood

praying for rain

Bm                 E                   A
running away isn't rough, but it's not enough

Let the last A chord ring.

Part E (04:56 - 05:59):

Eb                      Gm                   Cm   FmCm
The low tide is telling me that it's over,

Bb                    Dm            Gm
to breathe in everything exposed

Eb                      Gm                   Cm   FmCm
and comes back to cover me with a breaker

Bb                    Dm            Gm
being here's always changing too



Part F (06:07 - 08:21)





Dm                Bdim.               Am               G   Em       A
The empty sky surrounds me but I can't see at all

Dm                Bdim.            Am   GEmA
wide open arms can feel so cold

Dm            Bdim.             Am                G    Em     A
and you can sit beside me and tell me what it's worth

Dm                   Bdim.            Am  GEmA
but I hope I die before I get sold

Dm         Bdim.            Am GEmA
I hope I die before I get sold

Dm           Bdim.            AmGEmA
I'd rather die before I get sold

Part G (08:22 - 08:58):

   Dm           C             Bdim.
If you find the soul that you lost

Em                  Am
frozen in a starry void

Dm      C                   G
Take it within and hope the sight of blood

can will signs of life to return

Dm          C           Bdim.
Back to the way that it was

Em                     Am
long before it made a noise

Dm         C       G
To keep on quietly reminding you

what's never created or destroyed

Part H (08:59 - 09:11):

F major x8 - C major x8 - F major x8

Part A (09:12 - 09:52):

Same as the first Part A, A minor and C major are played with the two top 
strings (B and high E) being open, but still strummed.

Am          C
Wake as the swell peaks

    Am                      C
the close-outs drowning the birds with roars

Bbm                         Cm
and howls scare the new unkindness

     Bbm              Cm             Am
that picks and laughs at the carrion scene

Am                 C
Forces you see breathe 

    Am             C
can always go into hiding

Bbm                      Cm
and wait 'til it passes over

   Bbm                   Cm
or stay far gone for all eternity

Let the final Cm chord ring.

Part I (09:55 - 12:10):

A major x8 - A flat minor x8

Repeat these two chords until the fade-out.
