The Hail Seizures - Rusting Friendships chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Great song. Some of the rhythms are a bit choppy, listen to the record and it'll be a 
breeze though.

Also note that I think I sing the lyrics slightly differently from how they do it, for 
example in the first line I think is just 'thrives on being lonely' and not 'it thrives' 
- but for the sake of simplicity on myself I'm just gonna type them as I sing them.

Am

Am            G                F
The story, it thrives on being lonely
Em (listen for the rhythm here)
All stray cats die unnoticed
F         G
Under our buildings
Am

Am               G           F
Ripe fruit falls quiet in the city
Am           G          Am     G      F
We struggle, we cry, we wonder how it came
   G
to rotting

     Am                     C
This wrench of drama twists everything
    Em             F
our petty problems rusting freindships
G               C
to the point of breaking
         F             G
constant leveling, the hurt and hurting

Em (listen for the rhythm here)

the next part is without vocals, play this chord pro twice:

Am, C, F, G, C, F, G

for 'There are no footprints in the pavement' go tacet, i usually strum along dead notes 
the same rhythm the percussion does on the record, then play an Em with the same rhythm 
as the 'all stray cats' line form teh beginning of the song and sing:

No reminder of our trail
G           Am
From the escaping
Am
Under this tragic weights of dying
remember, remember, remember how we came
to living

     Am                     C
This wrench of drama twists everything
    Em             F
our petty problems rusting freindships
G               C
to the point of breaking
         F             G
constant leveling, the hurt and hurting
     Am                     C
The truth is somewhere in between
     F                     G                   C
the songs we write and the shadows the moon is casting
         F             G
levels everthing, our soiled sentry
F                         G
we're still learning, our soiled century
    F(jsut hit it once at the beginning of the bar)
the hurt and hurting

the only part I'm sketchy on is the ending there where it goes F, G. But it sounds 
decent and is in key so that's how I play it. If you have suggestions, send 'em to me please.

This song appears on the album For The Ruin, which is only 12 bucks for a CD or 6 for a 
digital download from Black Powder Press. Highly recommended!
