                        -------------------------
 I heard this song and since the artist is my last name i decided it would be cool if
i tabbed it out.  Pretty good song if you listen to it and play with it.

Intro:
------
A A A9 A A9 


Verse 1:
--------
     A              A9
an open mind, birds in flight 
     A               A9
a broken sign, a world of light 
        A               A9  
its head to head, some broken glass 
       A                E
its full of lead, its hard to pass. 

Chorus:
-------
 E                               D
why cant i see you for what you are, 
                                 A
i see whats in front but not too far.

Verse 2:
--------
      A             A9
pushing broom, digging holes
      A                A9
a poor mans tune, reversing roles
        A               A9
darkened streets, no more light 
      A               E
drunken fools, taking the night

(Chorus)

You keep playing the verse chords during the part when he sings 
"oooh oooh oooh" until he goes higher then you play:

 E|x|
 A|3|
 D|3|
 G|2|
 B|1|
 E|x|

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
There will also be a piano part during this, but keep playing the verse chords.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Does more "oooh oooh oooh" then goes into the verse.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Verse 3:
--------
       A                 A9
some lovely shape, a sea side view 
     A               A9
a living mink, a kneeler pew 
         A                 A9
a stain glassed wall, a rainbow shine 
      A                 E
a mirrored hall, nothing but time. 

(Chorus)

He sings "mmmh mmmmh, mmmmh mmmmh" to the verse chords and ends on

 E|x|
 A|0|
 D|2|
 G|2|
 B|2|
 E|0|
