I couldn't find any tabs for this song, so I decided to do it myself. I think the
song is supposed to be played in open E tuning, but I tabbed it out in E standard.




E    B        A            B   
      On the high-rise estate 
      G#m                         A
      What's at the back of your mind ? 
                 E         B
      Oh, on a three-day debate
            A           B
      On a high-rise estate
      G#m                         A 
      What's at the back of your mind ?

           E         B        A           B
      Two icy-cold hands conducting the way
                G#m                 A
      It's the Eskimo blood in my veins 
            E             B
      Amid concrete and clay 
           A         B
      And general decay 
       G#m                      A
      Nature must still find a way 

            E     B      A             B
      So ignore all the codes of the day 
                G#m                  A 
      Let your juvenile influences sway 
       E            B
      This way and that way and
       A            B
      This way and that way 
      G#m              A
      God, how sex implores you 
         F#
      To let yourself lose yourself


      C#m              E
      Stretch out and wait 
      C#m              E
      Stretch out and wait 
C#m   B                   A         B
      Let your puny body lie down, lie down 
      A                  B
      As we lie, you say 
            C#m           
      As we lie, you say 
      E
      Stretch out and ... 
      C#m              E 
      Stretch out and wait 
      C#m              E
      Stretch out and wait 
      B                   A         B
      Let your puny body lie down, lie down
      A                  B
      As we lie, you say
                C#m              F#
      Will the world end in the night time ?
                  A         B 
      (I really don't know) 
                C#m              F# 
      Or will the world end in the day time ?
                  A         B
      (I really don't know) 
                C#m              F#
      And is there any point ever having children ?
                  A         B
      Oh, I don't know
             F#                A            B
      What I do know is we're here and it's Now

            
              E               B
      So ... stretch out and wait 
              A        B
      Stretch out and wait 
               G#m                        A 
      There is no debate, no debate, no debate 
      E            B           A         B 
      How can you consciously contemplate 
                 G#m                A
      When there's no debate, no debate ? 
                       E            B     
      Stretch out and wait 
C#m   B               G#m           A
      Stretch out and wait 
                       E            B
      Stretch out and wait 
       E          B
      Wait 
       E          B
      Wait 
       E          B
      Wait
       E          B         B
      Wait 

      C#m         F#          Am
