Tabbed from the recording posted on John Darnielle's Tumblr

B            D#m
Clean slate, warm weather

            E              B    F#
They should tie our ankles both together

B                D#m
Seagulls calling to one another

     E                               B                 F#
If a stranger should ask you you can tell him I'm your brother

E                       B
Lean into me press real hard

      E                    B                  F#
I got no good reasons left not to let down my guard

C#m         B
I love your kiss

         C#m           E       F#
But it's going to come down to this

B       E       B          E
You and me on a high balcony

B                F#        E          F#
And professional wrestling on pay-per-view

B           E             B                 E
Windows and light and the radio blaring all night

        B            F#         E      F#      B
And the truth slowly dawning on me and then on you

B             D#m
Let's pretend we're all alone

E                B   F#
Let's unplug the telephone

B         D#m
Our scale doesn't slide

E                      B    F#
Here comes tonight hey open wide

E           B
Don't blink don't try too hard not to

E                 B                  F#
Just rehearse the alibis your father taught you

C#m                                    B
See the plastic coating on the windows blister

C#m              B                   F#
Anybody asks you tell them you're my sister yeah

B       E        B             E
You and me and a table set for three

B                 F#      E                   F#
Just in case our assassin should finally come through

B            E
And ???  and matches

B                             E
Why don't we cook up two more batches?

         B           F#    E      F#      B
With the ??? closing in on me and then on you
