Here are some of the weirder chords in the song and how Kevin (most likely) plays them: CMaj7 (X35450) FMaj7 (X33550) Edim7 (XX1212) G#aug (XX6554) Am (XX7555) B A C A F G F C D E E F# G I do wrong, strictly speaking, just for myself, because it E F# G Makes me feel like a real man to hold hegemony over my business, and I Dm C CMaj7 FMaj7 I refuse to be abused by the milieu of wistful decay D E F F/E D Besides I'm used to all of my scruples deserting me D/Db C E7 Like they've done today B A The lady from the block hunched over on the stoop C A With her withered old titty out, F G F Sayin' I've been rolled so many times, it's just C Feeding the pigeons B Now her grandson swings a little rabbit by the leg A C A While his mother's playing two wooden flutes F G F I want to repo some fugitive air C D E To escape this street's vagary aesthetic E Has anybody here seen my old friend blob? F# G Oh, has anybody seen where he's gone? E What he thinks I owe him is his former life F# G But how can I unmake someone else's mistakes? Dm C I guess I was his anti-hero CMaj7 FMaj7 The bitter word on his lips D E I hope I never feel a terror like F F/E D D/Db C E7 When you've discovered your autonomy had flipped C Edim7 F I feel like I possess only the bad aspects Edim7 G F C E7 Of invisibility, but none of the good ones C Edim7 F Are we walking mausoleums of scented rotting flesh? Edim7 G Mother always liked you best F C Liked your teeth upon her breast C Edim7 F Paint him with the oils from the eyes of street cats Edim7 G Through some shitty witchcraft F C E7 And apply it to their brows and genitalia C Edim7 F I had no idea how deeply I wounded you Edim7 G But I don't need no forgiveness F C E7 And no level of contrition will ever do C Edim7 F Edim7 G F C E7 C Edim7 F Edim7 G F C C C C/G G#aug Am G#aug F FMaj7 CMaj7 Notes: The "C D E" in the intro and fourth verse is played barred at the 3rd, 5th, and 7th frets, but it sounds great if you drop down to the open E shape for the "E F# G" that follows. I know the D/Db sounds weird, but I was able to isolate the acoustic guitar track, and that's what he's playing. Focus on the descending root notes on the A string like he does.
