THE FORMAT :: DOG PROBLEMS
TABS BY BRANDON KARCIC UNLESS OTHERWISE CREDITED

This is one of my favorite albums, and I've been wishing there was more of it on UG so that
the whole world could learn it and play it and love it. So I went through the whole album,
wrote chords for what was missing, and revamped all of the chord sheets that already existed.
I hope you hardcore Format fans enjoy this one a lot.

Credit goes to several people whose tabs I borrowed or improved for this.

INTRO
D GAnd you, you're gonna walk backwards through the room
DDoes that mean I won't see you?
GIt means you'll walk backwards through the room
VERSE 1
Bm G DTiffany's crying, she's dying to make it out of this hell
Em AWell I just laughed Ďcause it was my job to be her help
Bm G DI'm in my bedroom, I found me a corner where friends won't debate my health
Em ALike "How can he save some summer night when he canít save himself?"
CHORUS 1
DYou gotta pick me up, come on and pick me
G GmWhen I'm falling down you've got to pick me up
VERSE 2
Bm G DCut to December and how can a scalpel tear him to skin
Em AReveal the walks in the park, Lord, how can a heart come from two separate organs?
Bm G DAre you gonna make this simple? Do you wanna make me sweet?
Em D AOh, well I know I know I know I know I let you down, I let you down
CHORUS 2 & 3
DYou gotta pick me up, come on and pick me
G GmWhen I'm falling down you've got to pick me up
DPrescriptions scripting a timeline
Swing sets, grade schools, and black eyes
GFirst love, heartbreak and true love
GmMistakes, heartbreak and true love

D ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Song: Dog Problems (Track 6) Tabbed By: An unregistered UG user who did a fantastic job Edited and Reformatted By: Brandon Karcic Almost entirely the same as the previous chords, save for the very beginning and a couple G7s that can really just be played as Gs. PART ONE - THE BEGINNING
C Csus4 CDon't you dare speak for someone you don't know.
They'll feel it in the back of their throat.
AmWe know I can't construct a poem,
Cause words like girls get bored and run
FC'est la vie, I say "I've got so many better things"
GI've got nothing, you should see me,
G G7I smoke myself to sleep.
CAnd blame postmodern things I can't relate, like summer camp and coastal states.
AmLike alcohol and coffee beans; Dance floors and magazines.
FI think its safe to say I've only got myself to blame
GBut boys in swooping haircuts are bringing me down, taking pictures of themselves.
INTERLUDE - HORNS GALORE C Am F G PART 2 - FINDING FLAWS IN EVERYONE
CAnd so I walk the web in search of love, but always seem to end up stuck.
AmI'm finding flaws in everyone, I've reached the point where all I want
FIs to sleep around in hopes that I will catch back up.
GWe are parallel lines, weíre running in circles, We're never meant to cross.
CI'm at a loss, you were my tangerine, my pussycat, my trampoline.
AmNow alls I get are wincing cheeks and dog problems, I signed a lease.
FThinking my heart belonged at 93rd and Park.
GInstead I broke a girlís heart, and flew back to Phoenix
G7To finish the year as it started.
PART 3 - THE PART WHERE NATE RUESS BREAKS YOUR HEART, OR 'WAS IT WORTH IT WHEN YOU SLEPT WITH HIM?'
C Am FCan you hear me? Are you listening? This is the sound of my heart breaking.
C Am FAnd I hope it's entertaining, Cause for me itís a bitch
CWas it worth it when you slept with him?
Am FDid you get it all out of your system?
C Dm I am a man, Holding it all,
Em FI couldnít breath, Coming across
G Am G G7I didnít know I couldnít give up
PART 4 - IS HE SPELLING 'BECAUSE,' OR 'BECCA'?
CB is for believing you'd always be here for me.
AmE is for everything, even when we see it though.
FC, c is for seeing through you, you are a fake, which brings me
G G7To A because, because, you always run away.
CI never finish phrases, I misspell, Open arms are prison cells.
AmWhen I said, "I hate what I've become," I lied, I hated who I was.
FSo when you start to wonder 'bout the pain in my throat,
G G7 G CThen don't you ever, no never, ever, speak for someone you don't know.

A E D E"Who am I to work so much less to get more?
A E You all deserve what I am walking towards
D EIf you want, you should move away,"
PRECHORUS 2
A E D EOoooo, This has become a weakness

CHold on, there's a hole in my heart
DmEveryone can see right through me
(Em) FIt goes all the way to the waves
G F GWhere my love she tried to wash it away
C See we break for the summers so she can find lovers
DmShe thinks that they're bottles of wine
(Em) FThey make you dinner and they sing you to sleep
G F GBut by the morning find the bottle is empty
Am'Cause she never gives it the time
DmEvery bottle she finds, they don't compare
(Em) FTo the ones she left behind; There is never a note
G F GSo she waits for me to come back home
CHORUS 1
CI'm looking for a dead end song
DmYou wish that smoke could change its color
FI love it when you talk so much
G FAnd act like nothing went wrong
G CI'm looking for a dead end song
DmWe sit and find flaws in everyone
FI want to keep you by my side
GHolding off tidal waves
VERSE 2
C"Mint Car" is keeping us warm
DmShe lays crossed upon the bed
(Em) FWe are puzzles making shapes with our hands
G F GI take my finger, turn it into a pen
AmThen I run my hand down your spine
DmYou guess to write something profound, Something like:
(Em) "Our love will last 'til we die"
FI say "you're good at this game"
Gbut what I really wrote is
F GHow I've yet to be saved
CHORUS 2
CI'm looking for a dead end song
DmYou wish that smoke could change its color
FI love it when you talk so much
G FAnd act like nothing went wrong
G CI'm looking for a dead end song
DmWe sit and find flaws in everyone
FI want to keep you by my side
GHolding off tidal waves
G REFRAIN

VERSE Nico, come back home Show me that you care And loves just not a flare on my sleeve Sleep well, I pray that cardboard boxes, Set the perfect stage. 'Cause wood grain makes all man made things seem so out of date Life is not a play, it's what we Make of the people we love. CHORUS Snails see the benefits The beauty in every inch Oh why, why, why, why, why, why Are you quick to kiss? VERSE She bites at blades and leaves God damn you shrubbery Well I?m sick of vanity plates Should we move to the UK? 'Cause life here in the states has escaped PRE All the people in love What we make of these people we love Snails see the benefits The beauty in every inch Oh why, why, why, why, why Are you quick to kiss? Baby, maybe I spoke to soon I?ll touch you once you make the first move Snails see the benefits The beauty in every inch VERSE I watch her as she runs My mother jumps the gun She puts her in her arms That is just like my mom Never lets go, never lets me grow old I wanna pay her back But love is nothing you can tax My family?s not rich by any means But I feel we won the lottery, that day The rock swallowed the girl And I cried as cameras caught my eyes My tears turned into butterflies They fly away as caskets close A new day comes you?ll wake unfold Smile when you feel the sunlight You feel the sunlight You feel the sunlight CHORUS Snails see the benefits The beauty in every inch Oh why, why, why, why, why Are you quick to kiss? Baby, maybe I spoke to soon I?ll touch you once you make the first move Snails see the benefits The beauty in every inch Oh snails see the benefits The beauty in every inch ---------------------------------------------------------------- Song: The Compromise (Track 10) Tabbed by: Brandon Karcic This is based on the andyp2345 tab.

A E I love Love
D A DI love being in love
A EI don't care what it does to me
A Take these tattered boxes
that used to hold your clothes Break them down
EBuild them back up with your bones
All you did was construct a mess You're good to me when only flesh
A AYou're a memory with nothing to show
AWhen we would take trips
We swore we'd never take pictures
EPictures only prove you can't convince
Now I wish those photographs could convince you that what we had
Awould only turn out a negative
A Bm C#mWell well well
D DmIf fingertips are relationships
D A Then I could barely carry your weight
BmIf fingers are mistakes
D ADon't use this one to point the blame
EJust sing, sing
A EI love love
D A DI love being in love
A E I don't care what it does to me
A EThese pills are fine to pass the time
D A'Til I find my new drug
Then
D AWe'll take our chances
D Awe'll last a month
D Awe'll never speak again
(E) AHow i love being in love
(Interlude, A, E, A)
AAnd don't pick up the line
You're dressed to have a good time
EYou don't need him, you need to be seen
So someone else can treat you wrong So you my love can sing this song
A EI love love
D A DI love being in love
A EI don't care what it does to me

------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Song: If Work Permits (Track 12) Tabbed by: Brandon Karcic Last song on the album. My personal favorite. INTRO / THE VERSE WHERE SHE CHEATED ON HIM E
ESo the wind that blows across your room,
A Carried cheap perfume onto your dresser,
E It rained for jewelery and for credit cards,
A ETwo tickets to a film I don't remember,
A One day you'll kiss your rabbit's nose, pick up the phone,
ETo find I've been turned over,
AYou grab that piece of gold,
EOnly to find that the smell has taken over,
AAnd all the things you had,
B7They aren't the same
EAs what you hold
ENow I'm standin' in a room,
AThat's filled with older folks,
E They're pleading baby listen,
E And I scream as loud as anyone,
ABut when asked to make a point,
EI tend to whisper
ANow highways turn to tidal waves,
EAnd they're asking me to export all of your insecurities,
ABut that wind that blows across your room, it's gonna set the sails,
E B7And send me back to you, ooh,
CHORUS - THE MELLOW ONE
E Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
A Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
E And I think, I could make better use,
A Of my time on land,
E I'll drink less,
Cause Lord knows I could use a,
A Warm kiss instead of a cold goodbye
F# I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
A Hey I'm doing all right
THE BAMF BREAKDOWN / THE KING OF CARROT FLOWERS PT. 3 E A E A B E A E A B THE VERSE WHERE HE RECOUNTS A DARK CHILDHOOD MEMORY
E AIt's a shame what your father did,
E A BTo your brothers head, he smashed it with the
E A E A BTelephone
E A Your mother got scared and locked the door,
E A B E A You were only four, but Lord, you remember it,
C#m B A So now you're scared of love
EI'm here to tell you love's not some fucking blood on the receiver
ALove is speaking in code
EIt's an inside joke, love is coming home
CHORUS - THE NOT MELLOW ONE
E Sometimes, when sailors are sailin', they,
A Think twice, about where they're anchorin'
E And I think, I could make better use,
A Of my time on land,
E I'll drink less,
Cause Lord knows I could use a,
A Warm kiss, Instead of a cold goodbye
F# I'm writing the folks back home to tell them,
A Hey I
THE VERSE WHERE HE'S OVER HER
EYeah I'm doing alright
AYeah I'm doin' just fine
F# AAnd if she seems as lonely as me, Let her sink
EYeah I'm doin' alright,
AYeah I'm doin' just fine,
F#And if she seems as lonely as me, let her,
ASink, you let her, sink, well let her!
