Congratulations - MGMT

First tab ever, so don't be hatin' unless you want to.  This is how I've been 
playing it for a while, so it's pretty close.


Verse 1:

G   G/F#     Em Em7 C          C/B      Am  Am4 Am
Dead in the water,  it's not a paid vacation
G   G/F#     Em          Em7   C         C/B          Am      Am4 Am
The sons and daughters of city officials attend demonstrations
G    G/F#     Em      Em7       C      C/B         Am         Am4 Am    
It's hardly a sink or swim when all is well if the ticket sells

Break:

G  G/F#  Em  Em7 C  C/B  Am

Verse 2:
 
G G/F#     Em    Em7 C         C/B       Am   Am4 Am
Out with a whimper,  it's not a blaze of glory
G        G/F#           Em        Em7    C           C/B       Am   Am4 Am
You look down from your temple as people endeavor to make it a story
G   G/F#       Em     Em7        C      C/B                Am   Am4 Am
And chisel the marble words that all is lost if it's never heard

Pre-Chorus:  

G  C  G  G7

Chorus:

C
But I've got someone to make reports
D
That tell me how my money's spent
C
To book my stays and draw my blinds
D
So I can't tell what's really there
D
And all I need's a great big congratulations

Break x2:  G  G/F#  Em  Em7 C  C/B  Am

Continue playing the verse chords throughout verse three and four.

Verse 3: 

I'll keep your dreams, you pay attention for me
As strange as it seems, I'd rather dissolve than have you ignore me
The ground may be moving fast but I tied my boots to a broken mast

This break is slightly different:  G  G/F#  Em  Em/7  C  C/B  D  C  G

Verse 4:

The difference is clear, you throw it in your cauldron
Rust and veneer, dusk and dawn, Steinways and Baldwins
You start with a simple stock of all the waste and salt to taste

Pre-Chorus:  G  C  G  G7

Chorus:

C
But damn my luck and damn these friends 
D
That keep on combing back their smiles
C
I save my grace with half-assed guilt
D
And lay down the quilt upon the lawn
D
Spread my arms and soak up congratulations

Break until finish:  G  G/F#  Em  Em7  C  C/B  Am Am4 Am


I hope you have more fun playing it than I did typing it up, 
play on mental mystics
