Misc Unsigned Bands - Mercury - Out Of The Black tab

Based out of Pittsburgh, Mercury is one of the best live performances I have
ever seen. The shows are extremely energetic, with every member of the band
contributing in their own way. They are definitely one of my favorite rock
bands, though not well-known. Here's a link to their site: www.mercuryband.com


I'm not 100% sure of all of the lyrics, so any corrections would be
appreciated. Also, I lined the tab with the lyrics the best I could. I think
anyone should be able to figure out how to play the song from this tab.


Song: Out Of The Black

-----------------------------------------------------------  |
I am walking the path, fifty thousand the same
We are reaping the earth, under miles of clay
Life's as fast as quicksand, as it swallows you down
            C#m        Bm      A
And all the things you need to say
       C#m       Bm   A
Always late just by a day
        C#m         Bm      A
Give me strength to keep my breath
            C#m    Bm      A   Bm
Before they lay me down to rest

Thirty years I have wasted, in this tomb underground
Feels just like I am buried, and I'm tied up and bound
And these walls are giving, now these walls aren't holding
        C#m    Bm     A
And I'm trying not to breathe
      C#m     Bm    A
All I want to do is leave
         C#m     Bm    A
But this dust is in my eyes
        C#m      Bm    A
And the smoke is in my face
     Bm
Once again

When we're out of the black,               and into the white      I am holding on to


Break:
(Either strum each chord and let ring or you could play this palm muted)

C#m                                      A
Something hot has just pushed through my veins
      C#m                     Bm
Black Maria, she has taken my pain
                 C#m                      A
And I give to my family everything that I have
              Bm                                   E
Cause there's nothing, nothing left to take
                                     (at the end here you can hammer on the
                                      B note of the chord and let up on
                                      the palm mute then slide up to the
                                      high E)
