Part A (O0:00 - 01:22):


	Here, A minor and C major are played with the two top strings (B and high 
E) being open, but still strummed.
	

	Am	C	Bbm	Cm	Am	

	Am           C
	Sleep as the goer

	    Am                      C
	the bridge that watches the light speed through

	Bbm                 Cm
	And cries while the spirit stumbles

	Bbm    		  Cm       Am
	and inside missile for the protection of you

	
        Am                 C
		Maybe it's silent

	    Am                  C     
	the voice can't bear anymore strain

	Bbm                Cm
	but speaks without even knowing

	    Bbm            Cm                        Am
	and streams out of sight in the direction of truth


	Am	Em	Am	Em



Part B (01:23 - 01:51):


	Transition:

	-----5-----5------|
	---5-----5-----10-|
	-6-----7-----9----|
	------------------|
	------------------|
	------------------|

	Gm                 C                 Dm
		There's no reason there's no secret to decode

	Gm                   C                 Dm           G
		if you can't save it, leave it dying on the road

	Gm                C                Dm       C
		wide open arms can feel so cold, so cold

	Feel so cold


Part C (01:52 - 02:09):


	Em	Gb	D	Dbm	Bm	E


Part D (02:10 - 04:44):


	Transition - Play A major until the singing comes in.

	A	
	Balance the books, the ledges, the loons

	                             Gbm
	the disappointed look on the faces

	                   E
	that squint at the moon

	Dbm                       Bm
	I've seen it with shadows enhanced

	         Dbm                   Bm
	and then vote to decide who'll advance


	A
	Silver jet plane, making a turn

	                        Gbm                          E
	exciting the brain that expects it to crash and then burn

	Dbm                             Bm
	it's not the life lesson I'd've guessed

	Dbm                             Bm
	if you're conscious you must be depressed

	            A                   Dbm
	or at least cynical


	Em
	But someone might still eat the steaks

	Gb
	even if they're tough


	D
	Spending the day

	Dbm
	chewing the fat

	Bm                  E                        A
	floating away isn't rough but it's not enough


	A
	Oh Marianne, pass me the joint

	
	the sandpaper's tan

	   Gbm                     E
	go-getters are surfing the point

	    Dbm                      Bm
	and London's a cratch on the lens

	     Dbm            Bm
	it's over before it begins

	A
	Silk 'round her neck falls down to her shoulders

	                     Gbm                      E
	the older I get, the more I suspect there's a trick

	    Dbm                        Bm
	but really there's no trick at all

	     Dbm                 Bm
	that doesn't result in a fall

	     A                  Dbm
	or a faltering


	Em
	But something might spit out the bait

	Gb
	even if it's real


	D
	Rolling away

	Dbm
	missing the spoke

	Bm                         E                  A           Dbm
	close to the ground like a wheel but it's not joke


	D
	Holding the line

	Dbm
	clutching the phone

	Bm                E                   A
	nobly wasting the night, but it isn't right

	                  Gb
	it's not right


	D
	Smelling for blood

	Dbm
	praying for rain

	Bm                 E                   A
	running away isn't rough, but it's not enough


Let the last A chord ring.


Part E (04:56 - 05:59):


	Eb                      Gm                   Cm   	Fm	Cm
		The low tide is telling me that it's over,

	Bb                    Dm            Gm
		to breathe in everything exposed

	Eb                      Gm                   Cm   	Fm	Cm
		and comes back to cover me with a breaker

	Bb                    Dm            Gm
		being here's always changing too

	Cm	Bb	F	Eb	Dm	G

	Am	G	Em

	Dm	Bdim.	Am	G	Em	A

	Dm	Bdim.	Am	G	Em	A

	Dm	Bdim.	Am	G	Em	A

	Dm                Bdim.               Am               G   Em       A
		The empty sky surrounds me but I can't see at all

	Dm                Bdim.            Am   	G	Em	A
		wide open arms can feel so cold

	Dm	            Bdim.             Am                G    Em     A
		and you can sit beside me and tell me what it's worth

	Dm                   Bdim.            Am  	G	Em	A
		but I hope I die before I get sold

	Dm	         Bdim.            Am 		G	Em	A
		I hope I die before I get sold

	Dm	           Bdim.            Am		G	Em	A
		I'd rather die before I get sold


Part G (08:22 - 08:58):


	   Dm           C             Bdim.
	If you find the soul that you lost

	Em                  Am
		frozen in a starry void

	Dm      C                   G
	Take it within and hope the sight of blood

	                  C
	can will signs of life to return

	Dm          C           Bdim.
	Back to the way that it was

	Em                     Am
		long before it made a noise

	Dm         C       G
	To keep on quietly reminding you

	             C
	what's never created or destroyed



Part H (08:59 - 09:11):


	F major x8 - C major x8 - F major x8



Part A (09:12 - 09:52):


	Same as the first Part A, A minor and C major are played with the two top 
strings (B and high E) being open, but still strummed.


	Am          C
	Wake as the swell peaks

	    Am                      C
	the close-outs drowning the birds with roars

	Bbm                         Cm
		and howls scare the new unkindness

	     Bbm              Cm             Am
	that picks and laughs at the carrion scene


	Am                 C
		Forces you see breathe 

	    Am             C
	can always go into hiding

	Bbm                      Cm
		and wait 'til it passes over

	   Bbm                   Cm
	or stay far gone for all eternity


Let the final Cm chord ring.


Part I (09:55 - 12:10):

	A major x8 - A flat minor x8
	
	Repeat these two chords until the fade-out.
