Tuning: B F# B E G B

This is a pretty easy tune to learn once you get the riff, this probably 
isn't the tuning and chord voicings on the record but I've found it quite 
easy to use and it requires minimal fingering. Plus the open strings usually
sound nice with the chords. But basically, don't follow any of this too
closely, it's just a simple interpretation - play what you think sounds 
best or most accurate. Alternatively just play the actual chords - I've
transcribed the versions I'm using but feel free to just play D or whatever.
Anyway, enjoy playing this and listening to the album!

The chords are written above the lines, and where the riff is played I've
just put "Riff". Listen to the song and you'll have it figured out pretty
soon.

Main riff:

B ||---------------------------------|G ||------------------------------0--|E ||------0-------0-------0----------|B ||----0---0---3---3---0---0---3----|F#||----------1---------------1------|B ||--5---------------5--------------|
The placing of the last note varies in the repetitions of the riff, again listen to the track to get it spot on. Chords:

Chords: Part 1 Riff x2 I do my best to sleep through the caterwaul Riff x2 The classicists, the posturing avant-garde
CI bought a grey macaw, named him Jules Verne
DHe'll probably outlive me he's a bright bird
Riff x2 Keeps me company I teach him new words I saw a hologram at the theme park She looked as real as me through the white fog Then she melted down to her ankles Turned into a million-watt candle If I knew where she went I would follow Part 2
GWalking through the land of tomorrow
DMartian trinkets, plastic Apollos
GIn the sunshine try to act normal
CMy veins are full of flat cherry-cola
Riff x2 Slept on a bench by the rollercoaster Part 3
D C GDreamt I was riding on a motorbike
D C G DLion of Judah painted on the side
Part 1 I'm doing fine, I'm back in the palisades Life's a wash, a pastoral school play China shops and cold ivory towers I and I make toasts to the Caesars Forcing down the dregs of Decembers Madeline she spins in a slow bang All through the house the strong smell of burnt sage Let's make it clean and run out the spirits I know a diving bell when I hear it We're going down now under the surface Part 2 Light to dark can shift in an instant Feeling close but keeping my distance On all fours she's just so insistent Fills my mind with jump ropes and slit wrists Bust through the Firewall into heaven Part 3 Then I'm standing in that blinding light Crooked crosses falling from the sky Part 4
GSeen yeah seen by I and I
CSeen yeah seen by I and I
Repeats until Riff x2
