START THE MACHINE (Acoustic Interpretation)
by Angels and Airwaves
Tabbed by: The Count of Monte Cristo
Tuning: Standard (Key of E)

INTRODUCTION: This interpretation of the 'tinker-toy/xylophone'
intro has kind of a classical feel.  It sounds best when plucked.
The intro is based around an E chord.

e|-------------------------------------|
B|-9-7-------------9-7-----------------|
G|-----9-8-9-----------9-8-9-----------|
D|-------------9---------------7-------|
A|-7---------------7-------------------|
E|-----------0---0-----------0---0-----|

The second part of the intro can be strummed, but the
root strings are focused on.  Listen to the song so 
you can consolidate the tab and the rhythm.

VERSE 1:

E                             Eb
  The ash set in, then blew away,
C#m                          A2      Bsus
  It's getting lost into the sea.
E                            Bsus
  I grew so close to all the thoughts I had
(Bsus)
To leave forever,
C#m                              A2
  I left the chill and voice of screams of kids
    Bsus
And ran for shelter.

(same for verse 2)

CHORUS:

E
  You know I won't say sorry,
Eb
  You know I won't say sorry.
C#m
  The pain has a bad reaction,
A2           Bsus
  A blend of fear and passion.
E                              Bsus
  You know what it's like to believe,
(Bsus)                       E
It makes me want to scream.


BRIDGE:
E
  I see the stars, they're in your eyes,
  A2                      Bsus
A playful kiss, can't you tell I'm excited?
   E
A fast escape in the nick of time,
     A                    Bsus
You lost your wish, can I help you to find it?
    E
I'm on my knees, just one to start,
    A                       Bsus
A fresh new start, don't be undecided,
    E
If love's the word that you say,
     Bsus
Then say it - I will listen.
    E
If love's the word that you say,
     Bsus
Then say it - I will listen.


That's about it.  Hope you kind of get the feel for it.
Any questions or correcting, just leave some comment love.
Cheers,
