Absolutely amazing tune from this awesome band.  Hope they get huge in 2011!

Anyone else noticing undertones of Circa?

Its my first tab, so go easy on me eh?!



Tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb

Could easily be in standard, but I worked it out in Eb, cos thats what my guitar was tuned to.

If you wanna play in standard tuning (EADGBE) and don't understand tuning so good, just 
play everything here one fret down:

- there are no open notes!




Starts with synth of some kind:

Plays what I think is a Db and Bb.

    Db                         Bb
"We live a better life than we deserve,


      Db                 Bb
We're buried beneath the same sky"




Guitar 1 - Just guessing one of the guitarists plays these parts.
