be played on electric. Like my favorite song ever, love the lyrics. Help with the rest of
Swim would be appreciated.

* is a harmonic ----------------------------------------------------------------- Intro (x6): F5(I) D5 (D5*) Verse 1: Do you hear those distant voices And sounds through the flames D5 D5 The deafening drone Of these clanking machines In the lights It's the same D5 We're trying to free D5 (D5 palm mute) The sculpture from the stone We'll take the rhythm from the throne If the radio is dying Listen to me won't you listen to me ------------------------------------------------------------ Chorus: A#5 I don't want to lie in a bed of ashes F5(II) I don't want to burn in a midnight sun C5 I don't want to know if the system crashes G5 A5 I don't want to go if it's just begun A#5 I don't want to lie in a bed of ashes F5(II) Intro (x4) I don't want to burn in the midnight sun In the midnight sun ------------------------------------------------------------ Verse 2: I scream like a madman in the morning No one heard a thing D5 D5 I had hoped for a more effective warning No one felt the sting D5 D5 (D5 palm mute) Someone's savior never saved Take it away 'till there's nothing left to say The radio is dying Listen to me Won't you listen to me Chorus Bridge: A#5 (palm mute) Dancing like a child Will we feel at all Or just smile in another pretty prison G5 (palm mute) The wires frayed and broken free (pick scrape down) It's loud as hell but I don't want to listen A#5 (palm mute) Is existentialism so desperate?
