MEAT PUPPETS RULE

Intro (E-C#m-C-D) with solo guitar melody line


E5			F#5
And when I wake up in the morning
C5			    E5
To feel the daybreak on my face
E5					   F#5
There's a blood that's flowin' through the feeling
	C5	   		  E5
With a knife to open up the sky's vein

	E			 C#m
	Some things...will never change
		C
	They just stand there looking backwards
		D
	Half unconscious from the pain
	E		C#m
	It may seem...rearranged
		C			   D
	In the backwater swirling there is something that'll never change

And when I shoulda' been gone a long time
Laughs...and says I find ways
Just when we're sheltered under paper
The rockets come at us sideways

	E			 C#m
	Some things...will never change
		C
	They just stand there looking backwards
		D
	Half unconscious from the pain
	E		C#m
	It may seem...rearranged
		C			   D
	In the backwater swirling there is something that'll never change

	F-G	C	B
		Hey...I'm blind
		D
		Good...fine
		C	B
		Roll the time
		D
		On whose dime?

	-Solo-(over E-C#m-C-D)

And when I wake up in the morning
To feel the daybreak on my face
There's a blood that's flowin' through the ceiling
With a knife to open up the sky's vein

	Some things...will never change
	They just stand there looking backwards
	Half unconscious from the pain
	It may seem...rearranged
	In the backwater swirling there is something that'll never change

	Some things...will never change
	They just stand there looking backwards
	Half unconscious from the pain
	It may seem...rearranged
	In the backwater swirling there is something that'll never change

-Solo outro-
