Shins - No Way Down chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Listen to the song for rhythm, should be right. If the verse work sounds off, it's
probably due to the lead guitar, took me a little while to work out exactly what the chords
were. Pretty much just worked this out too over the last half hour, think it's right. 
Hope it helps!

Intro (play twice)
G# C# x3
F# C#

G#                      C#
Meet the son of a Government man
G#               C#
and a pillar of salt
G#                   C#
I was born with blood on my hands and
      F#                 C#
have all signs of a bleeding heart

G#                 C#
Living high in a giant hog
G#            C#
and a mountain so steep
G#                     C#
keep your head in a hollow log as
      F#             C#
the ruling fog are abound to creep

Ebm           G#
What have we done?
C#               G#           F#
How'd we get so far from the sun?
Ebm                Bbm
Lost, lost in an oscillating phase
         C#            G#          F#
where a tiny few catch all of the rays

G#                  C#
Out beyond the western squalls
G#            C#
In an alien land
G#               C#
they work for nothing at all
            F#                     C#
they don't know the mall of the layaway plan

G#                  C#
Dig yourself a beautiful grave
G#              C#
everything you could want
G#                C#
Maybe those invisible slaves are
     F#                   C#
too far away for the ghost to


Ebm                G#
haunt, what do we charge
      C#              G#       F#
for letting go of a claim so large?
Ebm             Bbm
Oh, all of our working days are done
       C#                 G#          F#
But a tiny few are having all of the fun
      C#         G#            F#
Get used to the dust in your lungs


Instrumental Break (play twice)
C# F# x 3
G#

         Ebm     Bbm
Is there no way down
           C#             G#
from this peak to solid ground
   Ebm              Bbm
without having our gold teeth
                  G#     F#
pulled from our mouth?

G#  F# x 2
C# (stop)

G#    C#
Make me a drink
G#       C#
strong enough
G#        C#                  F#
to wash away with dishwater world
        C#
They said was lemonade

G#    C#
Walk with me
G#        C#
after the show
G#      C#          F#
Maybe we can find a way
             C#
through the mine field in the


Ebm              G#
snow, what do we charge
      C#              G#       F#
for letting go of a claim so large?
Ebm             Bbm
Oh, all of our working days are done
       C#                 G#          F#
But a tiny few are having all of the fun
  C#              G#            F#
Apologies to the sick and the young
      C#         G#            F#
Get used to the dust in your lungs
