  Verse 1
  I've been asleep for a long, long time
  Blond hair to brown and brown to white
  My mom is buried beside my dad (?)
  But I was asleep for all of that

  Verse 2
  The schools that I went to have all been closed
  And all of my teachers are dead I suppose
  The songs that we sung have all gone quiet
  What happens below as you sleep at night?

Chorus (chords relative to capo)

  em    G      C
  I shut my eyes for a moment's rest
  em    G      C  (etc...)
  'cause I get so tired
  What things transpired while my body slipped
  Beset my mind (?)

Interlude

Just fiddle around with picking the chorus chords for a few bars and then sing to the
chords.

  em            G      C  (etc...)
  The river's up, the reeds are cut
  Halfway across what never was
  The water rose and swept in slow
  When the reeds awoke they were half below

After that it's the same chords while the string section works their magic, followed by
harder rocking part again over the same basic chords. Feel free to improv all you want
I have no idea how to tab it.

Structure:
Intro
Verse 1
Chorus
Verse 2
Chorus
Interlude
Verse 1 (2x)
Verse riff as outro

This song is pretty much all about the timing, so you'll have to play it a few times to
get it. Near the end when they repeat the first verse they only play the very first part
as opposed the usual twice... but that's hard to explain unless you listen to it and
it. That may only happen in the performance in the video from the ECMA's as well, I'm
really sure. Also, I'm not too sure about some of the lyrics but those are the closest
my ears could decipher so you'll just have to go with it unless you know otherwise.
I left out some of Hogan's guitar parts because I'm not good enough to tab them, go nuts 
those out yourself.
