Am                  Em                 Am             Em
Behind a curtain of towering pines the sun's settling red

  F           C           E           G
A city hidden high in the hills comes out to honor the dead

Am                Em                         Am               Em
Families somberly walk through the town they build alters and pray

F                   C          E        G
Clean the tombs and clutch rosaries and speak of better days

Am                   E           C                 F#m
From the edge of the island they ferry back to the shore

     F                 C          G             E
They climb under their covers and pray a little more

        Am              E          C                  F#m
In this ancient city of stone they sigh and bow their heads

    F                       E
The living seem rather, well...dead

Am             Em                    Am           Em
The sun is down the earth shakes the wind doth howl

Em             F                    C                    E
And I'm making moves all across the park, we're stirring in the dark

Am                Em                      Am              Em
The caskets squeak, the trees wheeze, the crypts all creak

Em                   F                       C
And toes sepulchered for months in months in dust

Are wiggling off their , woah

Am               Em                     Am               Em
Shed your shrouds, slip your fingertips through the ground

Em                  F                      C
Get those catacombs open I'm hoping you'll join us

Everybody come on out, yeah

Am             C                  F         C   G
What a lovely, lovely night for a drink and a parade

      Am              C                   E
We'll dance until the morning light, this town should be afraid

Am      G         Am        G      Am
     F        Am
Candied pumpkins, sweet egg bread, we love rising from the dead

Am       G        Am   G     Am
       F    Am
Carpals, tarsals, vertebrae, that's us clicking on parade

Am                 E           G                   F#m
I move without any muscles, my skull's a cavernous hall

F                    C                    G                  E
Tendons are made for pulling my friend, I don't need them at all

Am            E             C               F#m
Mescal in our mandibles and porridge on our ribs

      F5                          E5
Their prospects are looking quite grim

A5    G#5 A5 B5 F5 E5 F5
 G#5  A5  B5  C5 D5 C5
   A5 G#5
Board the mariposas now, set sail for the quivering light ahead

A5    G#5 A5 B5  F5 E5  F5
We're descending on the town

The living we're scaring, nightmaring in fright

They've waited forever to bring us together we finally wake them up tonight!

Sweet riff:

Yock dehay!
A5 G#5A5 G5 E5 C5 A5 E5
F5 G5

Note: This is basically the whole song, sans two of the breakdowns.  I will update this
soon, but I would hate to risk losing all the work I've put into this, which has
