Bb           G        Bb          F
Slicing up Eyeballs I want you to know
Bb        G        Bb          F

===============================================================
[Back to intro riff]
[Repeat first verse, replace 'I want you to know' with 'ha ha ha ho']
[Chorus again, with same chords, slightly different form on words]
[Repeat ad lib with chord progression from verses, end on F]

                    Tame
                      Pixies


The whole song is basically D(iv) C(iii) F(viii).  On "The Dream Is
Over" solo boot Charles play's the last cord at first posistion.


                Wave of mutilation
                    The Pixies


F           A              Bb       G7  Bb-A-G7-F
Ceased to resist, given my goodbyes
F        A            Bb    G7    Bb-A-G7-F
Drove my car into the ocean
F             A               Bb    G7
You think I'm dead but I sail away
     F       A    Bb    F       A    Bb    F       A    Bb
On a wave of mutilation wave of mutilation wave of mutilation
F    Bb
Wave
F    Bb
Wave

The verse chords should all be played in an E-barre shape.  For the chorus,
play the F as before, but play the A open and the Bb as an A barred up one
fret.


                    Here comes your man

[chorus]
G#         B
missy aggravation
         E
some sacred questions
           G#
you stroke my locks
       E
some marijuana
        G#
if you got some

[chorus]

chained to the pillars          Same G# B E G# E G# stuff
a 3-day party
i break the walls
and kill us all
with holy fingers

[chorus]                        Use G# B E G# E G# stuff for last chorus
