Introduction:
Play chords Ab   D#   Ab   C#   B
2nd time play chords Ab   D#   Ab   D#

Verse:
F#     G#          A
I went down to the tracks 
B(reg)                  C#(reg)       G#
thinking what they might say to me.
F#       G#          A
But they just stared back
   B(reg)   C#(reg)             G#
broken, trainless and black as night.

Then play Ab

verse:
Climbed out onto my roof, so I'd be a poet in the night.
Beat the walls of my room, I saw the big room that is this life.

Chorus:
G#                       E(reg)
     This is my Condition,
E var.            during this part the bass plays:  E   G#   A   B
Naked and hysterical, reaching to grab a hand that I just slapped back at.
G#                       E(reg)

     This is my Condition
E var.             as above.
Desperate, alone, without an excuse, tried to explain, Christ what's the use.

At the end of the chorus the guitar does a hammer on repeatedly, 
on the 3rd string notes  8/9.

Intro:
Verse:
Read and I felt so small, some words keep speaking when you close the book.
Drank and just about smiled, then I remember us in that bed.

Put my ear to the door, I just heard hot rods and gunshots and sirens.
People kill me these days, they have keys in their eyes but they lock from the inside.

Chorus:

3rd-|-----13/14----13----11--|
D#
