Fuckin' awesome tune frm a goddamn genius...

C     X32010
Asus2 X02200
Am    X02210
G     355433
F     133211
C/E   X7555X (if you don't want to do the riff, a simple c chord suffices)
G*    32003X
D7/F# 2X021X
Am/C  X3221X
Am/G  3X221X
Fmaj7 1X221X


C            Asus2      Am
It's quite a gamble to speak outta place
C                  Asus2         Am
Those things could kill you, but so could yr face

(this is so you can play the riff w/ the chords semi-comfy [optional])
|--------------------------x-x--x--|  2x
   G           F           C/E

C        Asus2    Am
What occupies me pays a low rent
C       Asus2               Am
Because fondness makes the heart grow absent
G             F       C/E
These things I say may seem to be cruel
G             F             C/E             /C /B 
to show you something from my heart to you:
Am         G*     D7/F#       Fmaj7
lookin' at you reminds me of looking at the sun
                      Am/C  Am/G  
and how the blind are  so   damn 

|-0h2--| repeat a few times
|-x-x--| listen to the album for timing and bass notes
[ Tab from: ]
C                Asus2           Am
Those holes on yr face could be used better ways
C                Asus2             Am
breathing's a distraction when you chatter away
G               F        C/E
these things I say may seem to be lies
G             F         C/E
to seem risque or sensationalize
C            Asus2       Am
but too many people can remember yr name
C       Asus2           Am
always walking you down Memory Lame
G               F        C/E
these things I say may seem to offend
G                F          C/E            /C /B
but not half as much as I'd like to intend
Am               G*       D7/F#         Fmaj7
'Cause listenin' to you reminds me of a motor's endless drone
                     Am/C Am/G  Fmaj7 (same as before)
and how the deaf are  so  damn  lucky

C          Asus2          Am
I could be happy if life came to a stall
C       Asus2            Am
then I wouldn't need my senses at all
G               F        C/E
These things I say may seem out of line
G           F          C/E          /C /B
but day to day I'm right every time
Am                 G*    D7/F#      Fmaj7              Am/C Am/G
'cause lookin' at you reminds me of looking at the sun
    Fmaj7 (again with the hammer-ons on the same frets just different rhythm)
too long

and then:
|--0-0-0-0--| once again, follow album for timing

(w/ hammer-ons)
You'll find that in no time 
you'll be talkin' to yrself along w/ everybody else
then you'll despise the look in their eyes
it may be difficult to tell when yr looking at yrself

Fmaj7 C

And you look fine if you don't mind
the empty look that on yr face, a black hole that's outta place
And out of time in a tight bind
you'll find something smart to say when a silence come yr way

(this part is hard to decipher, just play ugly chords, I guess)
(this is what I do:)

1X221X X0231X X1221X X2332X X2343X

C      /C /B
