Tabbed by:

This tab is intended to be played acoustically and is tabbed using the 
live recording of Steven Wilsons acoustic solo performance in Tel-Aviv 
that took place 2003-01-24 and the live DVD "Arriving somewhere..." 
There are some differences compared to the studio version, most notably 
that the riff is played as an intro and slightly modified.

Verse 1:

Dsus2       C        G
      Dried up, a guitar upon my knee
[ Tab from: ]
Dsus2                   C            G
      Should have sold out when the devil came for me

Dsus2        C         G
      Dig a hole and throw it out to sea

Bb                         A
      Break the code, how happy I could be


Bb       C                Dsus2       Fmaj7
      I still wave at the dots on the shore

Bb       C            Dsus2           Fmaj7                                        
      I still beat my head against the wall

Bb        C            Dsus2         Fmaj7
      I still rage and wage my little war

Bb                     A                     
      I'm a shade and easy to ignore


Verse 2:

White wall, I had to paint a door
I always find that I've been through it before
Close it up and throw away the key
Break the code, how happy I could be



Verse 3:

Woke up and I had a big idea
Buy a new soul at the start of every year
I paid up and it cost me pretty dear
Here's a hymn to those that disappear



That's it!
